@Indrid-Cold said in If you suddenly found out that your internal monologue for the last week was actually audible, how screwed would you be? What kinda effect would it have on your relation with others?:
@pe7erpark3r I don't buy that anyone's internal monologue is actually like that. I think it's just raw emotions with a few solid concepts tacked on.
No that's where you are definitely wrong. You are concluding from yourself to others. But there are different kinds of thinkers (this is from psychological studies)... Some people think in images, others in movements, again others in solid concepts, and of course some – like me – talk to themselves in their thoughts all the time. We all think in emotions though too, so you're right about that.
It's like that with memory too. The luckiest among us have photographic memory: I knew a guy once who learned italian by memorizing the dictionary (photographically). He could tell you for each word on which page it was and which one followed and which one came before. I tested him myself, so its definitely true. Of course he made some stupid mistakes when speaking because languages don't work that way :joy:
