Do you talk to yourself?
What types of self communication do you find appropriate?
To the consternation of my family I do talk to myself. Usually it is when I'm working in the kitchen. "Hm, what did I do with that pan?"
Yes, sometimes its the only way to get any sensible answers.
Yes, i find that when I'm walking along, and I notice something a bit shnazzy, I'll often have a comment or two to say about it, before realizing I'm the only one around except the sheep, so of course I give them a friendly baah.
Of course I talk to myself! I am guaranteed to listen to what I have to say!
Yes, i do talk to myself--hopefully when no one is around. Sometimes if things are muddled in my mind, it helps to lay them out and hear them as well as think about them. Helps me anyway.
While, I do not hold any intelligent conversations with my own self,.........I do scold myself!
Spill something? I chastise myself!
Burn myself ( a constant abuse).......I remind myself outloud, that I should have known better........
I do tell myself, aloud, " stay with the pace", " remain calm", " don't overreact"........
YES, I scold myself, even more than I scold my employees. They get a kick out of it! It makes me more .........humane and reasonabile to them. They learn to take my counsel as counsel, rather than as a direct criticism.
Yup. I talk to myself all the time. For example when I go shopping I will often tell myself to think about whether or not I need something or simply want it. This way I tend to spend less money.
I think it's normal to talk to ourselves, although it certainly wasn't thought to be normal in years past.
Yes, usually only when I'm very tired. The odd thing is that I'll use all kinds of UNBIDDEN accents and lingo, like from an 1849 gold prospector, or a Scotsman, or a Victorian Englishman ("Tallyho! There's the little bugger! Now put it to use, lad! Pip-Pip!") Where does this come from?
Sometimes I do.......and I don't even realize it. Someone will say to me, "Who are you talking to?" And then I realize I was talking to myself! I'm not a mental case or anything, but I do find myself talking at loud to myself sometimes.
All the time; incessantly everyday...I cuss people out and give them advice...I have full blown conversations with myself and people who aren't even there....
Ranting..much as I do here on hubpages...I'm actually talking to myself as I type this..saying things that I won't write but I'm saying them to myself......LOL....
appearantly I'm not the only one....
Stimulants seem to exacerbate the practice....give me some highly caffeinated coffee and I will talk to myself about everything from planting and cultivating flowers to the sexual libido of women....which in my estimation is much the same thing....
Oh God here I go again...
All of the time and its really interesting to talk to someone who have nothing important than you.
It is helpful to develop ability of talking to yourself because more often you will find yourself relying on your own insight before making a decision and quick reply from inside might save your day.
I talk to myself often. Sometimes I am caught talking to myself by my boss. That sight is not a very pretty sight when he gives you a stare. I laugh it off and just say "I'm talking to the evil gnomes inside my head". Well, back to the topic, when I talk to myself, I am able to find solutions to problems I may have. Talking to myself also helps me write.
It helps me to concentrate on the task at hand, I "think" outloud when I'm alone sometimes.
sometimes I do...it seems to help me sort my thoughts out! I always say I got it from my grandmother as she used to do that. One day I answered her and I startled her so much I never did that again.
All the time - and I even answer myself back! Appropriate - trying to figure something out or to encourage and support yourself. Inappropriate - putting yourself down and discouraging yourself. When I catch myself doing that I say 'cancel that' and change it to something more helpful.
Wow! There are a bunch of self talking hubbers. I am more aware of my own self-talk and speak to myself more freely. Thanks for your feedback!
Yes, when i am feel alone , like walking alone , i talk myself.

What would you tell yourself if you could talk to your "self" from 5 year in the past?

I had a dream several times over about a year. I was in my yard and was attacked by a lion. I always won the fight. No idea what it meant. Pretty strange.
