If someone you know sends you a message, do you hear that person's voice in your head when you read it? If so, what voice do you hear if you have never heard the voice of the person you are reading a message from?

How do you read without hearing a voice?

Woah I don't hear a voice. It may be time to see your GP for auditory hallucinations...

Tbh when I see replies on here, the person's profile picture and their use of emojis affect what voice I hear.

Does the same happen when you type?

It's normal it's subvocalisation/inner speech, I don't usually hear the words I read anymore but I was taught how to prevent it (because it slows down reading and comprehension).

If you count out loud whilst reading something "with your eyes" you'll probably find the voice isn't there but your recall is much better

These answers are just confusing me more :rofl:

As in, to read it in my own voice, I would have to read it aloud in my head (if that makes any sense) and that would take time. idk mate. I don't even think I know what I am talking about.

You do it you just don't realise it. It's not like reading aloud and then listening, it's just having a voice to hear the words. Otherwise you wouldn't be aware of the words you are reading. It's much more obvious when reading fiction.

Unless you're deaf. Then idk what happens.

Each to their own. On another note now that I see another message from you CHANELDIAMONDS, it was interesting that you said [on a thread that seems to have disappeared] that if you had to eat someone's poop you would choose a baby's. Is baby poop not so bad?

It depends. Most of the time I hear my own voice when typing/reading, but if someone's message is phrased in a way that I personally wouldn't choose or has specific grammar/vocab that I associate with that person, then it will switch to their voice (if I know what it sounds like).

Some people won't hear anything, and may not have an internal monologue at all.

I don't 'hear' anything. I am aware of the words but I can't reasonably call it a 'voice'.
