    Default "Thinking"

    I just wondered out of curiosity.
    If you picked other please elaborate.
    Maybe you guys use them all to some extent? does it vary?

    I use "I" when pontificating with myself, when going through a real or imagined conversation I use the voices of the people in those conversations. Whenever I read books though, all the characters speak with my voice.

    When I'm giving myself advice, I use "you." All other times, I use "sexy."

    when I think about what I need to do around the house, I use "we"....

    I will lit. think : "we don't need to double bag this, here"


    It's kind of cool, I bet I have a councel and/or lordships of the Rings-esque commity dedicated to house decisions. No wonder I never do anything - beaurocracy sux!@

    Other:
    I use both "I" and "you."

    I use "I" when I am thinking.
    I use "you" when I am thinking (talking) to myself like I am another person.

    Dang, that sounded crazy.

    Oh, but it is always my voice.

    wait so know one else thinks in different voices? I rarely use my own voice in my head, it can get chaotic because it will be in a male irish accent then when I'm argueing with my self in my head over whether or not i should do something another voice, will chime in. it's my thoughts it's just not my voice.

    Sometimes I'll have accents in my head, only for certain times though, feeling silly, being bored, stuff like that.
    But it's always just my voice doing the accents.
    Perhaps that is even more crazier than actual different voices.
