I give up, here's a poll.

edit Answer for personal emails... sorry I was not clear. :) Work email, for most people I guess, is not processed the same way personal email is.

I keep talking to people who say they just get emails and leave them in their inbox. I cannot fathom how this works, I need a complex manual email filing system that forces me to look at every email I recieve and 'bin' it, making my inbox sort of like an elaborate to-do list. I get anxious when the inbox is up over 20 messages because it means I'm not functioning properly. (I think I'm becoming a serious ESTJ or something.) So I'm curious if I'm the weird one, as usual.
