    I do this all the time. Don't worry about it.

    It is a real stress reliever for me.

    Pretty often when I'm alone. Helps me to think and vent feelings.

    I talk to myself almost incessantly when my roommate is not home (which is a lot of the time) and I'm awake, not writing/typing, etc. I "think out loud" a whole lot. The problem is I study like that, too, so on exams I tend to want to talk to myself out loud but I can't and it can be frustrating. I tend to mouth the things I want to say which helps.

    I agree that it's good to keep the flow of ideas going, at least for me, it helps to get it out. But sometimes the tangents can just keep running and I seem to get lost in a sea of some kind...for, like, hours.

    I also do this thing that really worries my roommate (I can't always control it just because she's around!) - I tend to argue with myself out loud (hey, I'm just debating), and voice both sides of the argument. Sometimes I also raise my voice to the point of yelling, so I walk around the apartment YELLING AT MYSELF for fairly long periods of time.

    I guess I can be pretty arrogant self-esteem wise, like I'm the only one worth talking to. One thing that supports this hypothesis: if a friend makes a comment and I take the opposing position (this is fun for me) and we start to argue out loud, at some point I find that I am arguing against myself because my friend wasn't interested in defending their position. I often ignore what my friends say too, because they say stupid things, so I just talk to myself when around them and talk right over their "answers". This is admittedly pretty...bad.

    Yes, constantly! It's nothing intelligible, usually in some different accent, and almost always rhyming, melodic nonsense (they're still English words - it's just that those words strung together in the way they are when they fall out of my mouth, are meaningless.) I do it when I'm doing something else - like sitting at the computer - and won't really notice until I stop doing whatever else it was I was doing, or if I'm interrupted by someone or something. I think it's just some sort of thumb-sucking thing. I don't know. A habit.

    In those times that I'm actually paying attention to what I'm saying, speaking coherently, with the express purpose of untangling ideas, I speak as if I'm explaining whatever it is to someone else. I do this fairly often, but it's deliberate and purposeful, unlike the habit I mentioned above.

    I only speak aloud to myself when I'm alone, or mumble under my breath if there are only a few other people around and we're not interacting, but the mental chatter doesn't stop no matter where I am.
