Yes. I probably should stop, but then I'd get lonely.

Does anyone lack the ability to talk to themselves?

I simply find it annoying. Same reason I don't read over my posts.

I don't know... at least no one like that has posted in the thread yet.

If I didn't talk to myself then I would freak out when under stress and not be able to keep anything straight in my head. So, I don't think I could bear to think of the habit as annoying.

Oh yeah, I have intense conversations with myself, often involving another fake person. I'll often get involved in an argument of some sort, come out victorious and feel awesome despite the fact it was myself debating myself and to lose would just be horribly fail. I usually come up with some awesome quotes which should have their own Wikipedia page... 8)

It's less talking to myself and more thinking out loud. Life needs a little narration anyways.

I would, but me and myself aren't on speaking terms since we lost our last argument with ourselves.

I'll get over it. I just need to learn not to push my buttons.

We're not speaking at the moment. Perhaps, if I were not so selfish we could work it out. And don't I understand that the garbage won't take out itself? I just feel like I don't care anymore. Am I seeing another self? Is that what this is about? Just be honest with us. I think we deserve that much.

Oh, all the time. When I'm writing, I dialogue with myself/my characters, when I'm split on a decision, I'll argue with myself, when I'm bored, I'll start up conversations with myself.

Yes, I have dramatic debates with myself and it's usually a draw.

Not out loud, at least not both sides.

All the time. Usually when my internal monologue gets interesting, since saying the words tends to bring them into tighter focus.

I am very careful not to allow this to happen when with others, since my internal monologue does spend a lot of time on the subject of how much it hates all humans and wishes they would all die horrible deaths. Fortunately I only rarely slip up :blush:
