    i usually do right before i go to bed.
    i think it's a mix of unresolved issues and fantasy's and nonsense "what ifs".

    i usually don't remember it when i wake up the next morning.

    Wow! I do this all the time! It started right before bed one night when I couldn't fall asleep. After awhile I thought I was going crazy. My dad (INFP) is a psychologist and thinks I should get help. At least now I know of a whole slew of people who are just as crazy.

    I do this all the time, with people I know and people I wish to know....its a love/hate thing cause its inevitable I always find myself having this imaginary conversations but sometimes I hate it so much because I realize its not real and I want them to be real... alone I can be so articulate and with other people I just mute so its very frustating.... I also hate it cause when I get to speak in real life its never the way I imagined it to be.....

    Yes. I sometimes imagine myself to be a reporter, saying to some other imagined audience about what's currently happening around me.
    “To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”—Statement from unpublished notes for the Preface to the Opticks (1704) by Newton.

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    Anyone else doing this?

    Curious to see that so many others are also doing this.

    For me it is a way of articulating some thought or idea I've come up with - finding the exact words to use for presenting it's principles in the clearest way possible. In my mind I imagine myself surrounded by a few people to wich I am going through my train of thought.

    I've found it to be a very useful method - most of the times it plays out just as I've pictured it.

    I guess it's about preparation and wanting to be understood. I take ideas very seriously and also want for others to consider them, or at least give them critique. And letting others respond to these ideas gives me opportunity to map out their thought process. It's a way of getting closer to other people, I think.

    We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull; some have weird names and all are different colours, but they all have to live in the same box.

    We all have self talk. Some of us have learnt to turn of the self talk and enter a state of ecstasy. But for most of us, we not only talk subliminally to ourselves, but we also listen.

    But things are changing. Not only do we talk to ourselves but we talk to one another on Central. And talk on Central is very like self talk. It is almost as though we are talking to ourselves, but not quite. It's like self talk Jim, but not as we know it.

    It is as though our minds no longer live just inside our heads, but also now live on Central. And living on Central is living in public. It is as though our central nervous system is no longer just on the inside, but is on the outside as well. And all we have to do is reach out and touch one another.

    Yes, I talk to myself all the time.

    It's better now, since cell phones are so tiny people just assume you are talking on a cell. If you wish, you could wear an ear piece. That way they'll say, "Oh, he's just talking to someone on the cell phone."
