do you talk out loud to yourself if you are alone in a house ? i sometimes do it, but afraid to tell it to anyone lest they think i am mad or something like that. or is it normal i wish to know. i am otherwise a normal person, mind you!

Hi subhadra. Yes, I do talk to myself a lot when I'm alone. lol I don't know for sure why I do it. Sometimes I think it's because for 14 years I had a dog that followed me anywhere I went in the house and a lot of times I talked to him. He's been gone almost 2 years now, but maybe the habit just stuck with me. I live by myself, so I guess I don't worry about anyone hearing me. I really don't think there's anything wrong or not normal about you. I've heard people say that it's ok to talk to yourself as long as you don't answer! :)

i think one of the reasons why humans tamed dogs and other animals is to be able to talk to themselves without any problem. You dont think a person mad if he or she talks endlessly to a pet dog or cat. many old people do that.

Sometimes I talk to myself if i'm alone or i'm watching a funny film.hehehe~~I think maybe when I do it like that I just want to disperse the loneliness.

I do it sometimes without noticing, is not like I do it on purpose like if I was someone else and start a conversation. Is like you said, you talk (or think) out loudly. Some people have told me they do so, not on purpose, so, makes me think is something not that unusual as I thought. You should be ok.

Yeah, I do it alone in silent when i feel bored or annoy but not in loud voice. i sometimes talk when i am in dreams. As if you always do it the other people may think that you are crazy.

I do it and I'm normal. that is a good way for me to keep track of stuff. I'm very forgetful so talking to myself outlowd creating a list is a good way for me.

I talk to myself sometimes, but not loudly. If I talk to myself loudly, I think people will think that I am crazy. I don't want that to happen. I have seen many people talking to themselves especially when they are angry. They talk as if it is to themselves so that the person who is angry with him (whom he is mad at) can he the talk.
