Is it really wrong to talk to yourself?
I do all the time, I think it's more just speaking thoughts out a loud
Talking to yourself is perfectly normal.
Honestly everyone does it. It's human nature. With have an internal voice and an external voice. Often both cross over.

If you talk to yourself and expect and hear an answer, then there might just be a problem. I talk to myself all of the time - even while I am driving. I figure people will think I'm on a cell phone if they even notice.
Oh sorry, I was just talking to myself. What were we discussing, oh...
No there is nothing clinically or pathologically wrong to talk to yourself; however, if you do indeed start a two-way conversation (talking back to your self-talk) then and only then would we begin to contemplate and deduce if there was an issue. Now if you are doing this when amongst others, especially strangers then again we would like to discuss this with you...
There is some speculation that when you begin to answer your self-talk that it may perhaps be a symptom of Disassociative Identity Disorder (DID)...
