I have entire conversations with myself, in my head. Almost never out loud though.

 

Something that irks me about sitcoms like the Big Bang Theory and such is when everyone else leaves the room and one character is left and they make some witty or clever comment out loud for the benefit of the audience but I'm just sitting thinking, "Who does that? Why would they say it out loud?".

I sure do, all the time. Sometimes I look in the mirror whilst I do it too, and if The Sims has taught us anything it's that my charisma levels should be through the roof. Unfortunately it's not the case, I have the charisma of an ugly cat.

 

I tend to do it more whilst I'm alone though, occasionally I'll sing to myself too. Sometimes I'll be walking down the street and not even realise I'm doing it, then I turn a corner and come across someone who clearly heard me coming and they must think I'm a f*cking loon. My singing voice is really terrible so they usually spit my face and call me scum, old women especially.

Not really, no. Isn't thinking enough, though?

Endlessly and everywhere. It can be pretty hard to tell me apart from the homeless freaks on most days.

 

I can't wait until I'm super old and can just officially be a crazy old man.

I do when I'm alone, it's more of thinking out loud than having an actual conversation with myself. Although sometimes I catch myself saying "we" when I'm really only referring to me alone.

Do it all the time. Sadly most of the conversations I have with myself are more interesting than with other people. ph34r.gif

Yeah, I do. Most of the people do it. No, you're not becoming crazy nor schyzophrenic if you talk to yourself. It is when you talk to other people that are not there that you should worry

 

It's perfectly normal to talk to yourself, it's even really good for you.

And here I was thinking I'm insane. Yea, I talk to myself alot. Sometimes it's audible, but only at whisper level. I mostly talk in my head though, about a lot of things. Usually just questioning everything I do and think. I'm still pretty sure I'm a tad insane though. Sometimes I feel like I'm trapped in my head and can't escape. It's a pretty terrible feeling. There was also this one time when I was going to sleep and thought about how when I close my eyes I just see the inside of my eyelids and then I felt like I couldn't not see. That was frustrating and almost made me panic.

everyone talks to themselves.

it's called thinking.

 

if you don't talk to yourself, you're mentally deficient.

now talking out loud? that's another story. I bet most people do sometimes. I've caught myself doing it.

Constantly. When I'm alone, even more.

 

For example, I'm starting TES:Oblivion up and I say out loud 'Alright, starting Oblivion up *random facts about the Game*, *Where I am in the game*, *What I want to do*.'

 

It's always either in English or in German, it's rarely in Persian. Persian sounds a bit, pussy-ish. Because your pitch is higher when you speak Persian than when you would speak English, German (or Arabic, for example, which beats German by a mile).

 

I am like a narrator, I think it stems in the fact that I'm alone at home most of the time, and it's been like that for years, and it's just engrained itself into my mind that I should just narrate every-f*cking-thing. There is me, there is the other me, and then there is the audience, but the audience is very rare, half the time there is me and the 'other me'. The other me is the sarcastic ass I am in real life, and 'me' is the benevolent pussy I am on the internet or when talking to people I don't know.

 

When something bad happens we exchange thoughts and try to calm me down, which is sometimes extremely helpful.

I'll tell myself about my day, and reflect on my beliefs to myself when I get bored. Kind of like writing a diary to short-term memory. I used to do it for such long periods at a time that I'd miss whole hours because I decided to lay down and think to myself.

When I was younger I talked to the background noises all the time. By that I mean humming that I constantly heard as a child, or sometimes this rhythmic drumming that would come and go. It was never anything pronounced or profound, and my conversations might as well have been with myself as I didn't usually get replies.

Yeah I do it a lot! It's kinda creepy that I start talking to myself and only realize this a few minutes later. But yeah, I do it. Mostly when I'm annoyed or, in most cases, when I want to listen to a good opinion. I often talk to myself in my native language, Romanian, but also in English in a bunch of cases!

 

Odd enough eh. whatsthat.gif

I sometimes when I am alone I talk to myself out loud. Then I realise it and say: Stop talking, you are crazy!

 

I sometimes also start to think in english instead of my home-language, or sometimes I forget a word in my own language but remember the english translation of it. confused.gif

If I'm on my own, sometimes I do. Usually it's limited to being internalised, but sometimes I vocalise them.

I sometimes mumble things to myself. Just my inner dialog vocalized. So like today I was at a grocery store. I got into one checkout line, and then noticed another checkout line was shorter. So I mumbled to myself, "I guess I'll go to this line." I don't think anyone heard me, but I did think to myself, "Did I say that out loud?"

I do too. and I think there's nothing wrong with it. but sometimes my parents say it is weird, so, don't do that.

but I will do continually, because when someting is mess up in my head, that's the time when I do it the most.

Yeah i mumble like that, usually when i see some punks down the street i always mumble derogatory things about them.

I also mumble when i am reading prices for things at the supermarket.

 

I talk to myself sometimes, often when playing games "Oh really? Camping in the corner, yep good job."

Or if it is a really nice day outside i like to say things like "Man what a good day!"

If i am driving and i have to do things i will speak those aloud too.

"Alright gotta go to the airport and pick up so and so, then head to woolies and get some groceries, and pick up some new jeans for next weekend.

I talk to myself quite often, but I don't do it loudly and pretty much only when I'm alone. I sometimes create imaginary conversations in my mind that could take place the same day or sometime in the future. I fantasize about stuff a lot too, especially about women.
