Oh yes I do that. Almost everyday when am stressed up with issues. When am going for an interview or to meet a person who can make sweat or stummer i have to go 2 minutes before the meeting and psych myself up. Sometime when am nervous or when I get some bad thoughts I go to the ladies and talk to myself so that I cannot loose my mind. After the talk I loosen up and continue things as usual. I love it. coz I even cry.

I do talk to myself when i am nervous or am preparing myself which i am going to do and i have to do.I use to buck up myself by talking to the mirror and get set myself to get the final output of myself.

I do sometimes but I usually don't say those nice things to myself. It is not that I say anything very bad but things like you should change this or that or you should have washed your hair yesterday or something like that...

Hi, I do talk to mirror myself. That is very secret too. Even my mother had asked me whom are you talking too. Still it gives someone to share my secrets, another imposer who knows whatever I know. It also helps to check out my appearance too how I look when angry, sad etc. I do like to talk to myself on mirror it something I do like to share to myself.

I thought we people are different from each other. But now I see that basically we are the same stuff :-) Of course I also do speak with myself not only in front of the mirror but usually from inside.kinda I confer with myself on every issue I think about.Is it also called like talking to self I dont know but I think lots of people could be the same. It is actually present in people who rely on themselves ..who are self confident. I think it is the sign of confidence.. the state of motivation and giving positive and analytic thnking..

I seldom do so, because it is a little silly to me:)

Hello there. You are not alone. I always talk to myself in front of the mirror too. I do that almost everyday. I do that whenever I feel stressed, nervous, happy or sad. Actually, I do not only talk to myself in front of the mirror. I talk to myself when no one is around too. Looking at myself in the mirror and listening to myself talking helps me to build self-confidence.

I do talk to myself but not necessary in the mirror. May be while trying to sleep or while walking on the road.And many such places where i can use this quality of mine. And i really feel its good. it helps in gaining confidence back reducing anger planning things and other day to day matters.

No I've never done that before, I just normally talk to myself :). I'm not crazy, just mentioning oh I have to do this or did I already do that or something like that.

Although I don't get nervous about addressing groups, I do talk to myself anywhere that I can do so without disturbing others and can get myself to listen! Talking at the mirror is an exercise I save for preparing to give a speech, because with my biggest skeptic looking right at me it is easier to catch mistakes. I proofread articles that I write for publication or legal contracts by reading them aloud, too, but not by a mirror.

Oh yes I talk to myself in the mirror - and most any other time also. Sounds silly but sometimes it's just easier for me to figure things out if I actually put the problem into words via talking to myself rather than just have the thoughts rambling around in my head. Note - I also answer myself :) Ok call me crazy but it works for me.

I hardly talk to myself in the mirror. I would only do that if I'm preparing myself to give an oral presentation.
