....do you talk to yourself? Or by yourself? Or in any context where you are the only person in the room/area? Or where you know no body can hear you?


I don't think I do this much. I think I do it when I'm really frustrated thinking about a problem in school and I'm trying to figure out an answer. So I guess it's a sort of stress relief for me, it's about the only times I can think that it's happened to me.

I don't.

Well, maybe i swear even if people aren't around me, but i don't have conversations with myself

Relatively often, actually. I don't hold conversations with myself, but I will say things to myself while working and writing mostly. When working I mainly do it to help remind myself of what I need to do. With writing, if I'm not sure how a sentence or paragraph sounds, I'll say it to myself, in order to see if I like the way its written.

I don't have conversations but I'll comment on something or ask myself a question out loud if I'm in the middle of doing something.

Only occasionally. I haven't answered myself back yet.

I used to talk to myself a lot. Now, I just talk to Formy. He's a good sounding board. :)

Oh I talk and mutter to myself all the time. Even in rooms full of people that only I can see.

Nothing wrong with externalizaing your thoughts in private. Key word private. It's really creepy when people do it on crowded trains or any other super public place.

I believe I answered this before, but I usually do it as a means to help me concentrate on a task. It also helps me organize thoughts better. I have mild ADD so that's why the cat jumped on my lap.

I grumble/mutter stuff when I'm annoyed but only along the lines of "this is stupid..." "this sucks" "whatever.." not really conversational though. Although I do talk to my dog while I'm walking her, dunno if that counts ^^

I once had a conversation with myself that ended in an awkward silence.
