Main Question or Discussion Point

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.

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.

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?"
