I used to think only fictional characters(like on tv) do that until I found out, not long ago, that some people actually do so, in their mind, and some say with their mouth(thinking out loud).

I never did so, but I found this fascinating.

I tend to think outloud about religion and morality and other arguments I have with people and I guess everybody has a narrative in their head.

@MrASSH0LE: why you think you do it. my uncle does it cause he says it helps him solve problems faster(he is a programmer). and I heard hi do so alot once when we went grocery shopping together.

I kind of hoped that all the responses in this thread would be from the same person.

No, I don't talk to myself other than the occasional exclamation of surprise or frustration. I tried it once, but five minutes later, I was asleep.

sometimes, but not really I do tend to walk around in circles when I need to think.

I do. I think it's because I was an only child so there was never anyone around to punch me in the arm and tell me to shutup. I think of it more as thinking out loud though.

I have a tendency to thinking aloud a lot, I'm usually pacing around at the same time.

I'm always having conversations with myself in my head lol. Doesn't everyone do that? I rarely say something out loud though, unless I was speaking to someone.

I only talk to my self when I'm thinking or when I commit a mistake... rather than that, I don't talk to my self.. :)

I think I might be the only one who doesn't do this. I got so many responses on the other WM sites, as well, and in real life.

Only when I feel the need to talk my problems out. It's an old habit that I have, but I describe them as soliloquies for myself. However, I only do it when no one is around. Also, as someone who believes there's a creator, I do feel that when I do this someone is listening to me. I actually even feel at peace. I think of it as self-encouragement.

I know of a lot of people who do this and don't like to admit it, so I know I'm not the only one. Don't be shy ;p

Oh lawd, for years I did in my head out of habit (maybe from so much time spent alone?)

Then, rather unexpectedly flipped into a manic episode and without even realizing it I was having conversations with myself out loud and rather freaking my family and others out.

I don't anymore, in my mind or otherwise, aside from thinking out loud upon occasion.

In my mind I speak to myself but not out loud. If I did that my family would probably think I'm more crazy than what I really am. xD
