Do you think people tend to be writers or talkers?

I've observed the same. I'd put myself in the both category, as I think there is a time and a place for both. With the advent of the internet and computers, I think we are seeing a gradual shift toward writing instead of talking. One of the negatives of this shift is sometimes people can forget how to interact with one another, and the ability to hide behind a computer screen can lead to impoliteness, and words that are later regretted. That said, written communication has its positives. Writing out something gives someone time to think it over before it is published. It also provides another outlet to express an opinion that may not be possible in a discussion group, since only one person should (ideally) be speaking at one time, there is a finite amount of time, and it can be tough at times to get in a word edgewise. Written communication can also be preserved better than speech. And of course, because of written communication, we have the Bible.
