Do you talk to yourself?

Okay, this is a safe space… you can admit to us if you talk to yourself or not. After all, we have no way of seeing how you vote in our polls.

According to WebMD, 96 percent of adults say they internally talk to themselves, and 25 percent say they talk out loud to themselves. Which category do you fall into? Or neither? Both?

We think talking to yourself is perfectly normal. The only time things could get weird is if you’re in a tightly packed RV park with all your windows open… Hmmm…

I do. Sometimes I say ‘huh? ‘

Most times I say “doh!”

I particularly “talk” to myself when I err. The greater, in my opinion, the error, the more I “talk” to myself.

Usually just when I’m aggravated.

Wow, every time I see an old woman pushing a grocery cart down an aisle talking out loud to herself (no obvious blue tooth device on) I can’t help but think “Poor lady!”. It may be fine to think things, but talking out loud to oneself is not good.

You talk to yourself when you want expert advice.

I talk to my Dogs all the time. They are such good listeners.

Plus, they don’t talk back. Yep, since I lost my dog a few months ago (first time in 75 years I haven’t had a dog), I don’t have any excuse to be talking out loud in my house now, but that hasn’t stopped me. 😆 Have a great day, Vicki. 😀 –Diane

My grandmother once told me “it’s okay to yourself. And it’s okay to talk to yourself and answer yourself. But when you talk to yourself and answer yourself and then say “what” you know you have a problem” Words that I live by.

Most times I’m the only person intelligent enough to understand what I’m talking about…

yep, I do. I always agree with myself, it would be bad to argue.

I always talk to myself. That way I can talk to a better class of person and get a more intelligent answer…

Yes, of course, I’m the only one I can talk to without arguing.

ROFL at the responses and stories! Love them all and I’ve done all of those things…including saying “huh?” to my own discussion with myself!

Yes. Loudly. And it’s mostly cuss words.

Do I talk to myself?! Talk to, answer, sing to and otherwise entertain on a regular basis, of course.

So does my wife, she says if she wants intelligent answers she always talks to herself. She’ll be in another room talking and when I don’t understand what she says I’ll respond and she says never mind. That’s the aggravating part.

Zig Ziegler said, Sure I do, I like to talk to intelligent people, and I like to listen to intelligent people talk!

Of course, and I answer myself! I was a carpenter all my life, I figure things out that way.
