Talking To Yourself: Indicates That You Might Have Brilliant Mind

The word communication has many ramifications. It is basically a process of interaction with the people and their environment.

Through such interactions, two or more individuals influence the ideas, beliefs, and attitudes of each other.

Such interactions take place through the exchange of information through words, gestures, signs, symbols, and expressions.

In organizations, communication is a continuous process of giving and receiving information and to build social relationships.

What if you are communicating with yourself? Maybe other people think it is a sign of craziness but is it indicates that you are brilliant.

Do you want to why? There are three positive things that can affect talking to yourself: first it helps improving memory, second it helps regulate emotions and lastly it can help for concentration.

Here are the several studies and experts say about this.

Paloma Mari-Beffa of Bangor University says our inner talk serves to control ourselves by helping us organize our thoughts, plan actions, consolidate memory, and modulate emotions. This inner talk evolves itself to talking out loud to further reinforce our approach to achieving set goals.

"Talking out loud can be an extension of this silent inner talk, caused when a certain motor command is triggered involuntarily," wrote Mari-Beffa, in an article for The Conversation.

For example, as children, we learn by talking to ourselves because this is part of our developmental immaturity.

Psychologist Jean Piaget dubbed this "egocentric speech", and realized toddlers begin to control their actions as soon as they start developing language.

A 2008 study conducted by George Mason University found 5-year-olds do better on motor tasks when they talk to themselves out loud, whether it's spontaneously or when told to do so by an adult, compared to when they are silent. The researchers noted as children begin talking to themselves, their communication skills with the outside world improve.

In the study, published in Acta Psychologica, Mari-Beffa and Alexander Kirkhan conducted an experiment where they gave a total of 28 participants a set of written instructions, and asked them to read them either silently or out loud. The researchers observed talking out loud actually improved the participants’ control over a task compared to what is achieved by inner speech. They believe much of this benefit comes from simply hearing oneself.

Similarly, previous research has shown talking to ourselves makes our brain work more efficiently. In a 2011 study, researchers gave 20 people the name of an object, (i.e., a loaf of bread or an apple), to find in the supermarket both in silence and then aloud as they looked for it in the store. The participants found the object with more ease when they spoke to themselves while searching, because thinking out loud helped spark memory. In other words, speaking facilitated search, meaning there was a strong association between the name and the visual target.

These studies suggest talking to ourselves is not only a way to control our behavior, but it's also something that we prefer to do by default. It helps us organize our thoughts. Psychologist Linda Sapadin believes talking to ourselves helps us validate important, difficult decisions. It clarifies our thoughts to determine what's important and solidify any decisions we're contemplating. This is often way we're advised to "talk it out" when we have problems.

Talking to Yourself: How to start it?

1. Ask yourself questions. Try to ask yourself like “Will I be successful?” and then answer yourself, positively with a “Yes, of course I will be successful.” This kind of positive self-talk will become a self-fulfilling divination. Your confidence in yourself is contagious.

2. Offer yourself instructions. This can help on how to tell yourself what the first step is in the task that you are working on, then the next and so on.

3. Give yourself encouragement. Keep saying “Yes, you’ve got this,” or “That looks great. I knew you could do it!”

4. Never say negative self-talk. If you find yourself saying unfavorable things like “I’ll never be able to do this right,” say “Stop” back to yourself. This is a way to block negative language before it affects your mood.

5. Concentrate on positives thoughts. Instead of saying “Don’t mess this up” which focuses on what could go wrong, replace it and keep saying “You’ll do just fine” which is more positive language.

6. Forgive yourself. We are all human and commit mistakes then when you do, forgive yourself by saying “It’s okay, you didn’t do that purposely.” or “There still another chance, make it up”
