    I venture to say that many people do this in a variety of situations, right? Especially people who are more communicative (and without thinking twice... I include myself directly in this group). Did you ever catch on talking to yourself? If so, in what kind of situation did this occur?

    This usually happens to me a lot when I'm studying some new language (because I always read it aloud :)).

    I talk to myself when I prepare a presentation or a speech.

    Honestly, I do it all the time whilst working. My occupation often involves a lot of complex systems, so I suspect talking it out sort of keeps things focused. Or maybe it just a bad habit, who knows. ;)

    Yeah, this is another very common situation when people talk to themselves. Plus, it's a very useful tool for learning / memorizing something. :)

    Don't worry, I think you're normal. :) Just be careful when you're out of work, haha... People may think you're crazy! :p

    Ah, yeah! I do this all the time! I can't help it. Sometimes, I am my own best companion; other times, I am particularly chanting one thing. It's crazy when I do it on the streets but I really can't help it. By the way, could this be a bad thing?

    Oh yes. I usually do this. Since I like to be alone, what's more; I'm kind of a loner, this is not new to me. It's not like I'm insane or something so if others can hear it I don't do it but sometimes the words just slip out even if I'm at my workplace. It can be funny sometimes because every time they ask what did I said I'm just like: "nothing I'm just thinking" and they always response like "well that was loud".

    I talk to myself when I'm pondering things. It's my way of analyzing things so that I can accurately say my thoughts or decision about it and perhaps my final answer.

    I always talk to myself too. People are saying here that it is normal and that is actually quite a relief to hear.

    I always talk to myself when I am preparing for something. Like a class presentation because I tend to stumble on my words when in front so I practice to prevent that from happening.

    Yes of course! I think everyone does that.
    It usually happens to me when I am taking a walk alone and have no one to chat with. I use to see myself in that situation, talking to myself.

    I talk to myself when I want to control my temper. Especially in the usual heavy traffic in my route, motorcycles would cut my path and instead of shouting invectives at them, I would say to myself in a normal voice, "relax, take it easy" and some other words to soothe me. But I admit that sometimes I curse those drivers cutting my path although no one could hear me. Talking to myself is an outlet to vent my ire so I would easily calm down.

    When I am not alone in the car, I don't do that though.

    Yes, I do talk to myself and I talk to God out loud. Lately I've been doing it a lot, and I'm okay with it. . I do a lot of researching on some heavy stuff and when I find things that are of particular craziness, I have to say something even if it's to myself. I can ask God a question and sometimes if I'm lucky he'll answer me in a dream, or I will run across something and find the answer. I'm past the point of caring what anybody thinks of me, if they think I'm crazy that's okay, it don't bother me.

    I don't think you crazy... I think you just think differently from the vast majority of people (and nothing's wrong with that :D).

    I don't consider this as a bad thing... It's unusual but not bad. For me, it's just a very authentic way of expressing yourself (and everything that is different always stands out more easily).

    All the time. Sometimes it’s because I think my wife was listening but I was wrong. Sometimes it is problem solving.sometimes it’s to keep me from listening to the other voices in my head

    Only way I can have an intelligent conversation with a very mature and knowledgeable person, who I like and enjoy being with.

    Only when there is a lot of Scotch involved, but this begs the question. If a Man said something, and there wasn't a Woman around to hear him would he still be wrong?

    my wife says I am a recluse, so talking to myself is the only way of working something out sometimes.

    Now that is funny Morgan...very funny and a take off of the olde tree falling in the woods. Well done Olde Man...well done.!!

    I shall have to remember that.



    Same here lonewolf....same here...


    However...when a problem vexes me ...often I find that if time allows..I can put it aside..and for some reason....eventually a good solution arrives...and without thinking about it too difficultly . At times it is odd...even eerie how that works out.

    It is as if one is thinking about it too strenuously and uselessly...or perhaps..over working the problem.

    yes sometimes if you leave the problem alone and go and do something else the solution may come to you.

    I am also pretty reclusive. If I didn't talk to myself, who would I talk to?

    I don't really talk to myself but will occasionally rant at someone who isn't present or can't hear me if they've done something or left me in a situation that annoys me. By the next time I talk to them I've got it out of my system and I'm calm.
