I do it all the time. I have these elaborate conversations in my head, sometimes I whisper if I'm in the shower or in my room. I don't know who I'm really talking to, but its like I just keep going and going.

Me too. I'm living by myself for the first time, so I do it a lot more out loud than before. I don't think it's that abnormal, though. I think a lot of people talk out loud to themselves when they're alone.

Yeah I do it when no one's around. Sometimes I'll be doing it and realise one of the curtains is slightly open and suddenly feel really self conscious. I guess its a way of compensating? I dunno. I am ok with it, except I do worry if I'll inadvertently talk to myself infront of other people.

Sometimes I'll soliloquy to myself whenever I'm in deep thought; otherwise, I tend to speak my thoughts out loud whenever I'm in an excessively angry mood, oftentimes with profane interjections.

I do this too. Sometimes it's better having a conversation with yourself, no-one answers back or interrupts. It's helpful to figure something out or just to accompany when no-one else is around.

Same here. I talk to myself every day, usually I keep it in my head though. But I also answer myself. When I have one thought, I have another that's replying to it as if it were someone else. These two voices in my head that are constantly talking about something. Usually arguing.

I never answer myself when I talk out loud though

I do, all the time. I'll have a running commentary going when I'm watching TV or something, I'll talk to the characters and pretend they can hear me. I talk to myself even when others are around.

I talk to myself regularly. depending on the situation, I either talk to myself in my head (I worry that my lips move in public, though, or that I've actually said something out loud), or I whisper, or I just say **** it and speak out loud. and then there are the times I'm being interviewed by someone else, and I play both parts, which I've posted about before, sorry if I'm repeating myself.

-It's ok.

Yes - when I'm in deep thought, I sometimes don't even realise it but even then, it'll be more of a "mouthing" thing rather than actually out loud.

When I'm angry or upset I do. I start ranting and raving.
Sometimes I really annoy myself so I have to yell at my brain to shut up and stop thinking.

Remember that time when someone asked about that spotted dog? Oh sorry, I was talking to myself. Yeah, I do it.
