    Your own voice or someone elses (maybe not even a real person)?

    Interesting question, Nocaps, and one I've recently begun wondering about.

    Personally, I typically hear some voice I made up, but it's as if the person were speaking for me.

    I'll get deeper into my ideas later.

    I have a variety of voices and personalities from which to select. They usually are just a spin off of mine. At least in the personality department, I like to test my narcissistic side out, in fact I overemphasize it. Good for a couple of smug looks and laughs. It's rather embarrassing when I get carried away, I like to think I'm the funniest and wittiest person around when I'm in that state.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    My imaginary voices have been of both genders, but none of them are my own.

    Usually, when I'm angry, the internal voice is female. When I'm thoughtful, it's male.

    My internal voice sounds like me, but usually speaks as if seperate from myself, especially when critical.

    All of the options on the poll for me. Normally, it's my own, but when I start thinking about what would happen in a situation, it becomes the voice of the kind of person who would offer the kind of response I'm giving myself. That person can be someone made up or someone I know. I suspect some of the voices that are made up are different aspects of myself, which would lead to some aspects being one gender over another.

    Default Internal Dialogue

    Much of my internal dialogue involves characters from a manuscript I'm working on. I most often end up talking withone of the male characters because he's harder to understand--not because he's male (actually the male POV is easier to write in some ways b/c I've been around males more than females all my life)--but because his character is harder for me to understand (a responsibility freak, somewhat rigid, closest type, if I were to type him: ESTJ); it's harder for me to get inside his head, so we have rather long dialogues.
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    It's my voice. I often have conversations in my head with others though.

    There is no voice per se, but my internal dialogue is the equivalent of a board of directors. I've spent enough time working things out on my own that it's extremely rare for me to bounce my ideas off others.

    I let others know only when everything is clear.

    So you're conceited.
