    Is it normal to talk to yourself. I don't just mean talking to yourself when doing work by speaking out loud the words you want to write down, I mean having a random conversation (usually a bit Sherlockish) by stating things and then 'analysing' it. My family, friends and teachers have all noticed me doing this and often find it quite humorous. Is this normal, or not?

    I often talk to myself haha especially at work i say things like "oh people are probably looking at me wondering why I'm talking to myself" i kind of do it in awkward situations to make me feel better. My dad also does it when his football team scores a goal and he acts as a commentator to himself quietly on his own.

    I think it's quite normal! I do it sometimes and then when I'm trying to think about what I was saying I often can't remember! Strange really!

    I hope it's normal because I talk to myself ALL the time, and I mean full on conversations with myself. Usually just in my head though, so nobody knows.

    Don't know about it being normal but I do this too. Although I think do it more when I am on my own.

    I have conversations with my self in my head, I never actually say anything though. Most of the time it's when I'm trying to fall asleep and I just start asking myself stuff in my mind and answering them. Almost always ends with me asking "would I fall asleep faster if I could stop talking to myself?" "Yes, probably, but that part of the book you just read was really cool, especially when bla bla bla happened" and so on... Really quite annoying, actually having a conversation about how annoying it is in my head right now...

    I ALWAYS talk to myself
    I can't imagine not doing it
    It keeps me focussed on what I meant to be doing and you never feel lonely in your own company when you do it

    I often talk to myself too and I sometimes give myself some good advice, you always need a second opinion and normally your mind is a good one

    I talk to myself as well because I have no one to talk to about anything. That's pretty normal as there are lots of people talking with themselves.
