Sometimes it's by design and helps jog the memory. I had two occasions just this week where I had a running conversation with myself because I couldn't find something.

Sometimes, it's involuntary. I defy anybody to deny that they have ever suddenly cussed out loud at another driver who made a dumb move.

I understand, it's hard to believe that some people NEVER do this. But some don't.

l believe from observation over the yrs, some actually just don't. l'd say a lot more don't than do actually .
l mean just about anyone's gonna curse now and then or something but that's not talking to yourself.


l've noticed too those with more personality or the more lively personality are usually the ones do, where as the more concentrative or low key personalities don't usullay talk to them selves.
Makes sense to bc livelier personalities are usually just looser people , less concentrative and with a lot more going on in their head.

I talk to myself quite a bit. But I'm self-conscious about it--I don't want to be 'caught in the act', so to speak. So it's amusing to me to witness this young woman who works at the bookstore that I frequent--she talks to herself all the time while stocking books, with no apparent self-consciousness. It's abnormal enough that I have in fact wondered about her mental health

Best company I can have, the person lurking in my head and commandeering my mouth to speak.

It’s perfectly fine to talk to one’s self, as long as you know you’re the only doing the talking.

I was standing in a long line in a second-hand store in Boston. Then a man suddenly broke the store silence with a "you f---in b---." Then he continued on with several explicit comments. All the words were said with such anger and nobody in the line blinked an eye.

LOL! That would've freaked me out, like at least see what was going on and then skedaddle out of there.
I curse at myself frequently, but only in private or around friends.

The last time we had our taxes done, the woman constantly murmured to herself as she looked through the documents and changed screens and entered info. Even asking questions and then answering herself. I just let her do her thing so she could concentrate.
