Types of phone calls

Instrumental   vs.   Intrinsic   [Moyal]
Functional   vs.   Socio-effective/relational   [Perin]
Thing-orientated   vs.   Personal-orientated  [Claisse]

Instrumental - to save time; overcome time constraints by action at a distance; shorter phone call
Intrinsic - to spend time; longer phone call
[in Haddon, 1997]
