Talk to myself

  1. Dec 9, 2012 #1
    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.

    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.

    What do you mean by "talk to myself"?

    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. :cry:

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

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