    I do this and I do it often, ill carry on a conversation with myself in the sense that ill say what I want to say to a certain person, I never answer myself though lol I think that good right? but I do it a lot, I imagine that im in a situation I would like to be in and ill just start talking like I was in the situation, like I was really doing whatever it is im thinking about, I know this is certified crazy but does anyone else do it too?

    I talk to myself when I'm walking alone. :unsure: Also when I listen to music in my room, it's a habit I've had for years. I go to my room to talk to myself. :laugh:

    When I feel really bad, like really depressed and my body is slowing down into silence, I hear some noises in my head. Not loud, but annoying, and scratching like crows, sometimes insects. Everything is red. There is a voice talking to me and its my voice, but its not me, its a more rational, stronger person. It sounds like me, but older, and more sarcastic. Maybe I will be this person if I survive a few more years. She comforts me and helps me go to sleep.

    i talk out loud all the time to myself.It is horrible.I guess it is because I don't feel free to spew off in front of others or even really just speak my mind openly around others.I did that to myself.The problem is now I have to be careful not to do it in public because I know what that looks like...i slip up though and DO it..only when I am really pissed.Then I realize I am a am working on that though.Biting my tongue in public that is.

    All the time drives people nuts but hey i get the answers i want. I constantly talk to my inner self like my brain won't shut down. I tell myself what others would have told me long ago and it works sometimes.

    Re: Collective Inteligance, and Social Structure

    zukhardo makes a good point also. but while we do have freedom, of choice, in society our choices are limitef by goverment, and etc on a large scale. our bodys imitate life. but we are not basic cells. as children and young adults are stem cells we can choose what role we play, whether were needed or not is a different matter. this is in the wrong thread.

    I do this too. My dad gets on me about it alot.
    Ive been doing it since i was little.
    I think its part of coping with a lack of friends.

    Everyone does it, some people do it innerly and some people talk to themselves outerly(right word lol?). Humans are in constant dialogue with themselves.
    I hold conversations with myself usually anticipating a conversation I might have with someone else. Like my therapist, I can go on and on what I will say and what she will say and my responses to what she says. But when I acutally talk to her none of what I wanted to say comes out and I'm usually just quiet answering her questions lol.

    I talk to myself. Sometimes I feel like I'm channeling spirits. They help me go to sleep at night. I can have a conversation with them if I want to work out a problem. Then other times, if someone makes me mad, I'll go off to them or if I'm unable to, I'll go off like they're right in front of me until I get my anger out. I wish I didn't do that.

    Same thing here, well kinda. I have little conversations with myself and I often feeling like I'm talking to spirits or something along those lines. Also, when I start feeling depressed and attack my self worth, I feel like it's someone else telling me I'm no good and I try to fight back against it. I don't really tell anyone irl though cause I'd probably be locked up. I don't hear voices or see things that aren't there, but yeah, it does kinda feel like I am having a conversation with spirits or w/e.
