study says it could be a sign of higher intelligence.
I think a lot, but never talk out loud to myself
sometimes I talk into mirrors, cuz I’m shocked to see myself.
I speak to myself all day.long. i dont want my roommate to understand what im saying so i speak in English. But i live in Estonia. I have started to think in English.
My mirrors are broken, there is some old guy living in them
nah, I don’t believe that.
I stopped talking to myself when a voice in my head started talking back (onset of sz hallucinations).
Sometimes I swear at myself loudly…
swearing is a sign of intelligence too.
It sounds good, but I have OCD which is sign of rather normal IQ as far as I know.
not IQ, just emotional intelligence. you’re alright.
Well, at least my OCD is rather not associated with higher intelligence, which is a pity anyways -_-
Not very often. Usually not to the hallucinations, but because I’m overwrought and have no one to talk to.
Lots of us do that.
Not that abnormal to talk to oneself. At some point in his/her life, bascially everyone can say they have had a conservation with him/herself. It increases the amount of information the brain can hold (working memory, brain scratch pad, are some terms for this). It only becomes a problem when it’s intrusive in your life, as in prevents or distracts you from being able to complete tasks that you would otherwise do without issue. Overdoing it can be a sign of obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety state or other psychological condtion.
It may be helpful to develop a few close friend that you could talk to.
I talk to myself all the time. Sometimes my kids look at me funny. I’m quite interested in what I have to say since I am never sure what is going to be the topic of conversation
Ever since my voices stopped I stopped talking to myself at length. I still talk a little bit to myself though.
I speak to myself in the sense I’m always taking to the internal voice in my head… Use to talk to myself but then the voice said I was acting like Sméagol from lord of the rings…
