Do you have an inner voice?

Have you ever had a conversation with yourself, one that took place inside your head?

If so, you are one of many that have an inner monologue — or inner voice — that narrates your thoughts throughout the day.

But did you know that many people have no such inner dialogue?

I have a running commentary in my head at all times. Sometimes I slip up and talk to myself out loud as well. I'll be interested to see if anyone else does!

Oh, I definitely do! Sometimes I wish it would simply shut up, lol. Jim has often walked in on me talking to myself, and I am always embarrassed, even though he thinks nothing of it. I also think in pictures, so the brain is pretty busy.

I disagree with what that guy said about auditory hallucinations; in some cases, one could be a sensitive and can be picking up actual psychic impressions. I can always tell if a voice is the usual one in my head, and when the voice is coming from someplace else.

I am not an psychic audio receiver, so I simply have "knowings"...suddenly and out of nowhere, but no extra voices or pictures. I'm just in a constant monologue in my head. When I get really quiet, which happens at home, I'm normally very surprised if I'm told I am because I have been very noisy in my head! lol

Before I post anything more mature, let me go out on a limb and share this song about a voice calling...I won’t give the movie away in case anyone hasn’t seen it yet but wants to. This is not the Idina Menzel version - this is the rock version from the movie’s ending credits with a male lead vocal. I share it because it’s so pagan, and ethereal, and compelling.

Yes, I certainly have a inner voice, and like Rowan, mine seems to be a monologue.

Just to be clear, I have an active dialog - like I’m talking - and at the same time there is another me who is actively listening but not responding.

OK, here's a fun experiment, ( kinda fun, kinda borderline insane, and I take no responsability if it drives you completely catatonic...lol) so, count to 100 in your head, now while counting, realize your thinking of something else also...now while doing both of those thoughts think of a 3 rd thing and so on and so on.....lol....welcome to my mind, headaches are mandatory.

Paul, is that a form of meditation or something that you experience unwillingly?
