    Default describe your internal dialogues

    i often find myself having a conversation between my rational self, my "inner child", other parts of the body, things like that... for example:

    stomach: *growls* im hungry!
    brain: again? damnit, I just fed you 2 hours ago
    stomach: i just want a sandwich, that's all, i promise!
    brain: not right now, but if you wait till we get home hands will make you some dinner.
    stomach: what about that new thai place a few blocks away? mmm, wouldnt that be tasty?
    brain: eating out is too expensive unless it's a special occasion, now be quiet!
    stomach: alright :sad: *plans to ask again in 15 minutes*

    does it ever seem like there is conflicts between different parts of yourself that play out in some sort of internal dialogue? if put into words, what would it look like?

    The setting: a dive bar in South London. A flee-bitten bartender rings a bell and shouts, Time! Last Orders at the bar!

    Brain: You've had enough.
    Hand: Feeling empty. Strange.
    Stomach: Feeling full. Strange.
    Legs: The fucking toilet is upstairs.
    Mouth: Another beer!
    Legs: The fucking toilet is upstairs.
    Brain: Aim there, old fellow.
    Cock: Fuck you. I fancied the big blonde.
    Brain: Good job I do the thinking.
    Cock: Fuck you. Oops. Missed.
    Legs: Hey. Watch the trousers.
    Feet. And the shoes.
    Cock: Fuck you, assholes.
    Asshole: Leave me outta this.
    Brain: Swap places, bro?
    Asshole: Deal.
    Cock: Swap?
    Asshole: Deal.

    Brain: How can I beat that?
    Ego: Try, dammit!
    Emotions: *laughter*

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    External Situation: Friend with whom I was in a large argument with the previous night IMs "Hello."

    Internal Conversation:
    Side A: If you don't intend on responding to that, why isn't she on your block list?
    Side B: Maybe I want to humiliate her with her efforts to contact me.
    Side A: You know as well as I do that you're not that vindictive by nature.
    Side B: It's a natural human emotion.
    Side A: Bullshens. Return the girl's greeting.
    Side C: What if this is a trap?
    Side B: Exactly!
    Side A: As I've said before, if you didn't want to talk to her, you would have blocked her. It's irrelevant if she's planting a trap or whatnot. Just return the greeting.

    *insert greeting returned and 5 minutes of unemotional conversation from my side*

    Side C: It still could be a trap. We have to watch ourselves.
    Side A: She didn't talk to you because she wanted something cold and logical. Show some emotion.
    Side B: Any emotion I could show right now would be improper.
    Side C: We'd be too vulnerable.
    Side A: You haven't realized by now that she's more vulnerable than you? It would be unwise for her to make a move.
    Side C: We still have a risk that need to be marginalized.
    Side A: What we still have is a person who apparently is willing to let things go. It's a risk that we have to take and a risk that you are blowing out of proportion.
    Side B: What's wrong with being unemotional?
    Side A: It's unhealthy and you're going to offend her.

    ... you get the idea.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Usually I just have two voices bouncing ideas off each other, sometimes they're both my own voice sometimes one of the voices talks and thinks like someone from real life.

    The setting: anywhere, anytime...

    Me: You're right.
    Brain: I know! Act on it.
    Me: I don't know...
    Brain: Act!
    Me: *snooze*
    Brain:

    so some of you have conversations with yourself? or different aspects/parts of yourself? do these seem like actual conversations, with two points of view, a dialogue with yourself?

    i have never experienced that. i have only ever had one voice in my head. sometimes when i am around friends i will have start a verbal conversation with myself as a joke. it is probably funny to me because it is so foreign to me. i would never seriously have a conversation with myself.

    I think this is a joke. Most of the time it's one voice for me too, except when I need morale support and I'm the only one around. Then I have to sort of cheer and motivate myself.

    In my head all the time. Its not like it is two different personalities in my head, rather just two viewpoints that I bounce questions/answers off of, one will always play devil's advocate to the other.

    Sometimes I sort of loose track with everything around me, and my lips begin to move with the thoughts, and a few times I've caught myself uttering things beneath my breath.

    #1: I'm going out to eat today.
    #2: You packed a lunch
    #1: All my co-workers are going out today
    #2: You hate that restaurant
    #1: Because I order the same thing, I'll try something different
    #2: You need to be saving your money
    #1: I need to be more social
    etc etc etc etc.

    These voices are the reason I'm so damn indecisive.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...
