    I talk to myself an awful lot. Like to the point where I well answer myself then continue to argue until my I come up with an answer. Is this strange? Do you have conversations with yourself? So interesting.

    I talk to myself. Only way to be sure I'll have an intelligent conversation.

    Besides, when you work alone sometimes, who else are you going to talk to?

    Some people tell me it's a sign of madness, to which I say I'm actually thinking aloud.

    I've pretty much quit cold-turkey since I no longer have the dogs. It no longer seemed quite so "cute" of me to be chattering and gesticulating wildly without them by my side (so as not to appear the madman talking to himself).

    I talk to myself all the time. I also talk to inanimate objects just in case they're listening too.

    I do talk to myself as well.

    Walking to school, my friend rode his bicycle up behind me and laughed at me for talking to myself. I denied it and he wanted to know why my hands were moving and my head bobbing.icon_redface.gif

    oh yea, of course, especially when i'm practicing and i'm pissed that i can't get something, i try to reason with myself about it instead. its better than going off the deep end and doing something drastic... and can be kinda funicon_smile.gif *may have had a couple drinks....icon_smile.gif*

    If it's schizophrenic, it's the better part . . . I do it all the time, ask myself questions and surprise myself by answering them. I also talk to myself on paper every morning. For some reason getting thoughts out into the air or onto paper makes them make a lot more sense.

    You guys are all freaks, scary stuff icon_razz.gif That is why you get PETS so you don't ever have to ask yourself the "am I going slightly mad" question. You just tell your dog,mouse etc. etc. instead.. They really love it and they really understand you and want to hear more and more... handpuppets do not count as pet icon_smile.gif

    I used to when I lived alone, but I don't anymore now that I have a partner. When I am at work and I do something stupid (like forgetting to pick up the print job that I deliberately got out of my chair to get, but got distracted) then I will curse out loud at times.

    An obvious sign of dementia. You're OK as long as you don't forget why you are walking toward the restroom. It's when your leg suddenly gets warm and wet on the aborted trip that you need help.

    I prefer to say that I "think out loud" rather than "talk to myself" because the latter suggests I'm having a several-party conversation all by myself, which would indeed be looney.

    Thinking out loud sometimes helps me to solve problems, since verbalizing seems to cause a different part of my brain to engage, as opposed to "silent" thought. Not sure if there's any neurological basis for this to be true, but it appears to work for me. Especially when I'm trying to solve a mechanical problem.

    talking to yourself is normal.

    responding to yourself is not. =P

    I'll be talking to myself in my office about what I need to do, what feelings I'm going through etc. Co-workers will walk by and ask if I'm talking to myself? Ya betcha is how I reply.

    It keeps me sane. If I think about what's going on in my life in my head, it conjures up the notion that will lead me to a resolution (if I need one) when I speak about it outloud.

    I don't actually talk out loud to myself but I do it in my head. I'm literally my own best friend.
