I think it would be weird, but also would make the hypothetical quest to self-actualization so much easier.
I need people to talk shit to me to get me to do shit. I also have a pretty good intuitive feel of people and what they need, so I could therapize the shit out of myself (and vice versa).
It'd be pretty crazy though.
But I suspect it would be more like this:

I think it would end up an exponentially more unsettling version of hearing your voice on tape and going "Ew, do I sound like that?"
I wrote an entire blog about cloning myself about 50 times. I wouldn't use them to interact with them, I would use them to do my bidding.
As a precaution, just in case my clones begin to do anything other than my bidding, I would implant pacemakers in all of them that are psychically linked to my brain. If they disobey me, then I would shut off their pacemakers with my mind and then they would have no choice.
The clones would also be outfitted not with my bone structure, but with bones made of titanium alloy, so that they will be more durable.
I also considered cloning a female version of myself. But I would have to program her so that she can't reproduce...I don't want to raise kids who are freaks. Oh yeah, and I think that I said she would have a fear of rat traps.
There are so many possibilities when it comes to cloning.
Oh, probably plan a crime, with the perfect alibi.
That, or make a mad dash to the closest weapon. Aint' no way I'm splitting my life, and given that neither one of us would respect any fair way of determining who gets it, we either help each other get more when divided, or we kill each other.
