    Do you doodle when you are talking on the phone?

    If I am on the phone talking (or especially on hold) I will doodle constantly.  Is that weird?  Am I the only one?

    I don't doodle, but I can't sit still when I'm on the phone, so I end up walking around my whole house, especially if I happen to be talking to my Dad haha! If I'm on hold, I'll often mumble and grumble, stopping just as the operator comes back on the line.

    Not weird. I do it and I know it's fun and creative. In fact, I've heard of studies that support the creative aspects of doodling.

    I sometimes draw silly pictures or write some of the words or numbers down from the conversation.

    Sometimes I doodle, sometimes I walk around or pace the room, sometimes I play little games like word searches, etc (while I put the person on speaker phone), sometimes I play with something as little as a string, running it between my fingers, and sometimes, very rarely, I do nothing but pay attention to the conversation....LOL!!

    yes, sometimes I doodle and sometimes I walk around the house aimlessly, depending on what the conversation is about.

    I do that all the time. Glad I'm not the only one.

    I always doodle when I am talking on the telephone. Usually my doodles are of flowers or little matchstick men. My friends at work laugh at me all the time because of my little works of art. One of my little doodles is on the notice board in the staff room - its a rabbit drinking a cup of tea!
