Talking to yourself
I’m in a dressing room today, and someone comes into the area next to mine and begins talking to himself. I think he’s crazy. This of course is not the first person I’ve ever heard talk to themselves out loud though. So I wonder why people do it? Is it simply that they never learned to think to themselves? Is it that they just don’t care about what other people hear or think of them as a result of what they’ve heard? I started to draw a connection to spacial reasoning. Maybe they have an inability to process thinking and conversation in their own minds, so they have to speak the words, then hear them, then they can process them. It creates that millisecond delay, but it’s enough for your brain to catch up.
Then I thought about insane people, and how they stereo-typically talk to themselves. Maybe that’s loneliness or a disconnect from human interaction, but it could be a subconscious work around to their brain’s own inability to process information. Then I thought about people with multiple voices in their heads. They must have huge spacial reasoning to be able to keep that information straight.1,597 views
