    Is it possible for you to talk to someone outloud and think
    something in your head (as in talking to yourself in your head) at the same time?

    Well yes but the words you speak to yourself are much more fluent in your head since you don't have to focus on speech, tone and sometimes even word placement.

    In other words the brain records thoughts faster than we can speak them. So it will always be slightly ahead.

    It's possible to talk out loud and think at the same time, it depends on the person, some people can and some people can't, I can and Chuck Norris can as well!

    I actually think you can... - ahh I dunno.. the 'verbal voice' does seem to eclipse the 'mental voice' but it's still present..

    Hopefully more people can post and share how they think

    I think I can, but it's a really slow process
