Are you aware of your interior dialog?
I just saw some twins talking to each other, and I was thinking that would be an awful lot like talking to yourself. Then I wondered if I had a twin, what would I talk about. Then I realized that I have a kind of twin inside me. Sometimes I debate issues or discuss them within my head.
However, a lot of the time, this dialog happens in a way that I do not pay attention to. That is, I know it’s happening in the background, but it doesn’t come to the foreground very much. I’d say, I’m semi-aware of it.
It happens a lot as I write. The words come, but there’s another part of me that evaluates the words as they come to see if that’s really how I want to say something.
Normally, I’m not aware of this happening. But when I focus on it, I can watch it happening. Maybe it’s not so much a dialog as it is a part of me watching me.
What about you? Are you aware of an interior dialog? If so, what do you talk about with yourself?
