  1. It is impossible to say what depends on what. There is indeed a correlation between them, but rather both of these components depend on the characteristics of the nervous system – these are primary signs that have a physiological basis, to some extent they are described by the concept of “temperament”. So people who can easily speak fast are more likely to have a high speed of thinking.

    If we talk about acquired signs, then both the speed of speech and the speed of thinking can be developed. And it is very likely that by developing one, you will inadvertently develop the second.

  2. Yes. Depends. And this is understandable. People who speak quickly and clearly naturally think just as fast. And a person who stretches out words, phrases, or even begins to choose and remember words, I think, of course, thinks slowly. And probably his IQ is lower. Although these are different things.

  3. An interesting and complex question.

    The speed of thinking depends on its intensity and “depth”; the more complex the subject of thinking, the lower the speed with which the brain performs them, due to the need to operate with a huge number of parameters.

    Accordingly, the speed of pronunciation is also inversely proportional to the” computing power ” of the brain occupied by the thinking process — a frankly empty and meaningless conversation on some “familiar topics” can be conducted extremely quickly and easily, but try just as quickly to discuss something at the time when you are trying to take integrals.

    This is explained by the fact that the human brain in its conscious activity is not multitasking, it also follows that if you often and quickly “work with the language”, then you will not be a “smart and thoughtful sage who speaks the truth”, as well as vice versa. You can't sing a song at the same time and at the same time fully reflect on the meaning of its words and meaning.

    So in general, the speed of thinking and the speed of speech are interdependent — for fast speech, thinking obviously also needs to be fast (since it is necessary to instantly select a stream of suitable words and sentences), but it will also inevitably be superficial (the classic division of resources into “quickly and somehow” and “very long and [not]qualitatively” ^^).

  4. I'll let you know based on what I was taught.

    The speed of mental speech is much higher than the speed of normal speech. Mentally, we can say about 600 words per minute. This is the reason why people get distracted when listening to an oral report – they mentally speak much faster than the speaker. That's why you need visual stimuli, slides with additional information, voice calls, simulations, and so on.

    So the pace of speech does not depend on the speed of thinking, as far as I understand. No matter how much you chatter, your thoughts are still faster.
