If I don't like the song then yes, I'll skip it.

If I like the song then I always make sure to let it play

Here are some of my favorite OPs:

Fairy Tail - Masayume Chasing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqRuzjIBkxY

Samurai 7 - Unlimited http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTnQJ---Ods

Kuroko's Basketball - Other Self http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=089nwtLOLmU

Kill la Kill - Ambiguous http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DI3v95PKsE

If I'm marathoning a series and if I don't the OP that much. I'll typically skip it.

ED depends on the mood I'm in and how the anime ended that episode (cliffhangers and stuff)

Nope. Never.
I do sometimes skip the endings to a bit before the end(not fully, since many times there are after-credit scenes, no way in hell I'm missing those), but that rarely also.
I like my OPs and EDs. =w=

Not to mention, that sometimes a mediocre series only charm point is their OP/ED. (Damn you, Mahou Sensou.)

If I really love the opening animation and song, then I won't skip it. Even if I don't like the opening animation but still love the song (that happens sometimes, for whatever reason) I won't skip it. But if I don't like either of those things, then yes, I do.

For the ending, unless the series tends to have post-credit scenes, if I'm not absolutely in love with the ending song and animation (Study x Study, anyone?), then I'll just end it altogether. I never watch next episode previews.

No, its part of the experience. Especially for a 12 episode season of a show. It's only 12 episodes and by skipping the OP, you make it feel even shorter. In the case of ED's, if it is in-season I always do, but if it is back catalog anime I do sometimes just because I'm so into the show and the teaser can spoil the show sometimes. (I do want to be teased only if I have to wait a week). Another time I watch the whole ED is when there is extra content like the karaoke singing in Lucky Star or the conversations between Chino's father and grandfather in Is the Order a Rabbit?

Never, even if I don't like the songs (which rarely happens). Sometimes I actually look forward to the openings and endings.

I usually listen to the opening first time watching and if I like it i'll sit through it but if I dont then nope. I never skipped the openings of Gurren Lagann, waaaayyy too good.

Only if the previous episode ends right before a battle begins.

if it's a show that I watch weekly I'll usually watch the intro. Most of the time the intro will get me hyped up for the episode. However if I'm doing a marathon of a series then I will because it gets really annoying and I just want to get to the episode. The same with endings. If it's something that I watch every week then I will watch for the preview of next week's episode otherwise I skip it because I don't need to know what's happening in the next episode because I'm going to watch it next.

Ive been skipping Hunter x Hunter's recently... cause its been the same thing for the last 130 or so episodes. Its boring now, they really screwed up keeping it the same and just switching up the verses a little.

I will watch/listen to the opening once, and if I like it I'll continue to watch it. If I don't though I will just skip it. But, for something like Naruto or One piece, I'll watch it once and then skip it until the new OP is out. As for EDs, I usually do the same as for the OPs.
