  1. Absolutely normal phenomenon, which does not mean any pathology at all (unless, of course, the person is aware that he is talking to himself, and not with another real interlocutor). Moreover, this practice can be useful, as quite correctly pointed out above:
    – when preparing for a public speech or just a serious dialogue, debate, etc. Pronounce and articulate aloud it is very useful and helps not only the lines but also to find a narrow and weak points and opportunities to reformulate not very clear moments
    – in the study of any complex material – speaking often helps to remember better and to understand what just silent reading and analysis
    – just for the development of thinking, the so – called articulation thinking is very common and very healthy practice when in the process of speaking thoughts and understanding that in the silence we had to wait a long time

  2. I join the answer. I'll add that saying your thoughts out loud is a great way to prepare for a public speech, for example. A text that looks like “cheers” in your mind may be quite weak when spoken.

  3. There is insufficient data to diagnose a psychiatric illness. It is impossible to say that someone is insane on the basis of one superficially described symptom.

  4. I've been doing this since childhood and everything seems to be fine. Although I have suspicions(I haven't been to the doctor yet) that not everyone is at home. I've only been talking to myself lately when I'm alone at home. I used to be able to walk down the street or talk during recess at school or uni

  5. I will add that normally “talking out loud by itself” happens sometimes in the late afternoon. Due to fatigue, control decreases and we stop paying attention to the fact that we are in a public place.

  6. I talk to myself all the time. I also talk to subjects. With onions or a frying pan, for example, when cooking. Or with a guitar when I play, etc., etc.

    I'm not a psychiatrist, but I think I'm adequate enough and clearly realize that I'm talking to subjects. It would be a different matter if I didn't understand what I was doing and lost touch with reality.

  7. It can be from anything. I've been talking to myself for as long as I can remember. But this is quite an adequate phenomenon, so there should be no worries about this.

  8. I don't think so; it's worth considering the fact that we're basically having an endless mental conversation with ourselves. Well, if you speak out loud, then, among other things, you also spread mechanical vibrations in space over time.

  9. The respondent noted above that, in fact, we have an internal dialogue with ourselves all the time. We just don't mark it as a separate phenomenon.�

    You can see this in everyone around you. For example, when a person is asked a question, and he repeats it a little slower, as if asking himself.�

    Or, in the store, I often ask myself the question “What do I need to buy? “or” What do I want now?”, and thus provoke my brain to gather and direct its resource to the fastest solution.�

    Also, sometimes it is useful to talk through some of your own problems in your mind to understand their source, features, and consequences. If something bothers, annoys, or angers you, sometimes it's important to discuss with yourself, ” Why is this upsetting me? Why does it knock you out of your calm state? What can I do to avoid reacting to this anymore?”. Only you know the answer to these questions. Dialogue with yourself is the best way to get rid of internal problems and achieve inner peace.

  10. If a person is trying to interpret or quote something,it is most likely a lack of attention. If it happens during stress and it's like a dialogue, then it's generally complete … If a person just starts saying something, perhaps practicing a foreign language, then most likely they have a good opinion of themselves and are sure that they are being listened to. Well, actually, if you recognized the last point,it means that he was able to really put himself high. If you talk inside yourself with yourself, then it already depends on what is happening there. If this is some kind of dispute or lynching, then this is either a child / teenager, or a person who is not confident in himself or with some kind of schizophrenia. If there are just thoughts about how and what to say, how and what to do,and a person notices for himself “yes,this is what you need”, then this probably can't be crazy or not quite normal at all.

  11. If he is aware of and controls this process, this is the norm. If they think they're talking to someone else for real, or they can't stop talking, it could be a sign of a medical condition.
