    It's... Difficult. It's taken me a long time to realize (as in, more recently in my life) but I don't... 'Dialogue' (or monologue) and it didn't occur to me that apparently some people actually think in actual, real words (yes, this is a shocker for me). This explains why it takes a kighjillion years for me to 'translate things into words'. It took many, many times and many years of me saying "I'll have to translate it into words," because I don't think in words. I thought about it recently then it occurred to me that I didn't think in any language for that matter. Even when I'm thinking of people speaking. It's very visual, or just... Intuitive? (In the mundane sense, not MBTI-sense) I'd explain but I don't know if I can. I'll just get information like that, then I'll have to spend much more time actually outlining what I'm seeing in an actual language (which is much easier to do in English, my mother tongue).


    EDIT: I've just read OP and this is in the link:

    How do they [non internal monologuers] think? How does this affect their relationships, jobs, experiences, education? How has this not been mentioned to me before? All of these questions started flooding my mind. Can those people without the internal monologue even formulate these questions in their mind? If they can, how does it happen if they don’t “hear” their voice? I mentioned earlier that I was spiraling out of control.

    My friend I have the same question isn't thinking in words VERY SLOW? What do you mean HOW the information is RIGHT THERE
    I'd say, "Literally, the thoughts are there," but it probably wouldn't be too descriptive or helpful since to people like in OP thoughts ARE words.

    Lol, yup. The "Voices in My Head" never truly go away for better or worse.
