Hello, ever since I was a small child I have talked to myself. I was wondering what this "self-communication" entails.

I talked to myself as well - probably well into university. For me, it helped concentration. Sometimes, I would just growl, or hum. Some of my student colleagues thought I was a bit weird - especially about the growling part.

I carry out two way conversations with myself in the mirror. He doesn't seem to think it's weird, but I have my suspicions.

Talk to myself


I speak to myself quite often. It is a good thing to talk with someone intelligent now and then.

I need to talk to myself so I can speak to someone unintelligent now and again. My wife and my dog are just too smart.

I don't just talk to myself. I interrupt myself while... Ohh puppies.

Yea, and I talk to inanimate objects too. Especially when they hurt me. Growling included.

My wife used to incite the roaming BIA bulls with moos - the result was panicked retreat into the house a flattened front fence. Bulls 'in the mood' are not to be messed with.

Living alone now, I think this may be why I'm talking to myself more.

"One advantage of talking to yourself is that you know at least somebody's listening." Franklin P. Jones once said.

It's easier to discipline myself when I say it out loud

"stop messing around, get back to what you were doing.. what was I doing?"
