    I believe I use all of these options, so I voted "I use different "personas", sometimes a mix of all, it varies", because it varies.

    I use both "I" and "you".
    Example: Me: Hmm, I wonder what I should eat for dinner.
    Other me: Well, there's pizza. You could eat that.
    Me: I'm not really in the mood for pizza, besides its pretty unhealthy.
    Other me: How do you feel about some grilled chicken and mixed veggies? Thats healthy and tasty.
    Me: That's a great idea!

    I should note that the "Other me" doesn't really speak in words, rather they're more like images, colors, or feelings. I'm not schizo, I swear.

    Yes you are. Denying it only makes it worse.

    I don't use "I" or "you" most of the time. Half of the time there just isn't dialogue. well there's noise, but not words. then it's more like images/scenes. i think in words closer to the evening, it gets really fast and incessant. it keeps me from falling asleep, makes me anxious. if i try to relieve the anxiety i switch back and forth between '"I" need to realize that there is no cause for this anxiety' or '"you" need to find an off switch'.

    edit: overall, i forget what the term is, but there isn't a person/myself talking to me, it's more... just detached statements. (i'll find the term later.)

    I meant "in what way do you speak to yourself inside your head?"
    As in, how do you refer to yourself?
    Do you use I when you are thinking "I need to get to work today...ah crap."
    "You need to get to work today". I just wanted to see from what perspective people see themselves when being "inside their heads". I'm very "disembodied" as I use multiple personas and almost never use I.
    Is it clearer?
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-
