    I only "speak" in my head when I'm reading a book. Then I have a narrator stuck in there, with different actors playing the roles of the people in the story. The narrator also reads poetry to me. Its voice sounds more melodious than mine.
    A lot of the time, the "voice" in my head is singing to me. Sometimes, it is joined by an alto, tenor, and bass (I'm a soprano so the voice in my head is also a soprano), and I hear (in my head) four-part harmony. Usually, it's unaccompanied, but sometimes, I hear instruments. Then I get the urge to sing out loud.
    Occasionally, I will perceive instrumental music in my head.
    I am an auditory thinker but not really a verbal thinker.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I carry on full conversations with myself in my head..... If I said stuff out loud people would think I was nuts...

    Mostly it's my way of going over all possible scenarios and outcomes and trying to prepare for whatever could be thrown my way...

    I do sometimes, especially when concentrating. Also, when alone, I talk out loud to myself a lot. Weird as this may be, sometimes when I'm alone I even half-heartedly act out/vocalize day dreams.

    Nothing new here. I talk to myself, inside my mind, and outside if my mind is 'too crowded'. It helps me organize and focus on specific things. I am easily distracted by outside noises when I do this.

I can also hear what it will sound like when I chew, what it would feel like in my mouth and I will literally start to taste it on my tongue after a while. I get all 5 senses going on -- when I was little, my daydreams were so vivid that I would be startled when I'd get budged back into reality. When I'm projecting ahead to anticipate what a person will do, a dozen little movies will flicker by, all completely played out at once. Yes, I can "see" more than one thought at a time. My thought process isn't bogged down by this in the slightest -- I tend to think at light speed, like everything is on super-fast-forward. I like the way I think, when I'm preparing for something I feel as though I've done it already.

    I relate to this too. I usually am seeing stuff like a movie and thinking words all at the same time. I guess my mind has a lot going on it.

    That's why I have difficulties speaking in general and I am always mixing words and things up. Only intense focus on the words I want to say, meaning formulating the sentences in your head in advance, or taking time before you answer does help me to speak clearly.

    Nevertheless conveying to others what I think about certain things, never really works 100%. I like to let my work speak for itself.
    Same here...I definitely have an inner dialogue, but my thoughts are not fully composed of these words. I also have images and sounds and vague atmospheric qualities going on in my thoughts. Snippets of verbal thought, full phrases, and entire paragraphs can accompany these. If I don't have a time delay to organize these into something comprehensible to others, then my speech can end up a bit jumbled.

    I also begin to formulate structure to the inner dialogue when I am focusing my thoughts in preparation to communicate them to someone else.

    I also will engage in a sort of devil's advocate thought process where I explain my feelings to myself through a verbal argument - it's a way to begin to convert those pre-verbal feeling images into something that can be compared to an external reality. I just do this for myself - to understand the world around me and that sort of thing. It also prepares me for any future scenario when I may need to explain these feeling-thoughts to someone else.
    I usually have some imaginary scenario going on where I need to explain these feeling-thoughts; so I am "talking" to some imaginary character in this scenario or maybe someone I really know is represented in my mind.

    i ALWAYS have a little conversation/narration going inside my head- but it is accompanied by 'pictures' or whatever, too. like a little movie... ive never really thought about what other people 'see' or 'do' inside their heads. very interesting...
    I will buy you a drink and I'll tell you what I think, and tomorrow, in the morning, I won't be sorry that I didn't sleep.

    I do that too! Am I going crazy!? Reminds me, when I was a little kid I kept wondering if I am ok since I saw two pictures instead of one when I took anything really close to my eyes. I asked the grown-ups and they never explained it...

    I speak to myself out loud sometimes. I don't really 'speak' inside my head though.

    Actually, I get made fun of in the lab for the way I speak to myself when I'm concentrating.
