gm, fun fact: 50%-80% of people do not have inner monologue if you have a "voice" in your head — you're "abnormal" psychologytoday.com/us/blog/pristine-inner-experience/201110/not-everyone-conducts-inner-speech

My friend who doesn’t have an internal monologue is really observant of his surroundings, especially audio He’s always mentioning stuff he overhead in convos of ppl around him that I never catch–I wonder if the monologue has anything to do with it

Random sample of 30 students…very small. Hope he did more than just pass out beepers and interview them

I see inner things. I talk to inner myself. I don’t see words when I read, I hear them. I swear that the first time I took LSD it nerfed by inner feeling sensation.

Yeah head empty no thoughts. Maybe people with voices in their heads are NPCs 🤔

Saw this a while back & find it so weird since my inner monologue doesn’t stop & is often why I have trouble sleeping. That people go through life w/out an inner monologue is mind blowing to me & my inner monologue.

I suspect there’s a high correlation with inner monologue and public text-based social network user

Interesting read. The inner monologue & visualizations helps me think through problems & ideas. Can't imagine living without my personal multi-media rich generative processor 😅

Posit strong correlation with aphantasia. Would be hard to operate with no mind's eye and no inner monologue.

"In one study, 26 percent of a random sample of 30 people talked to themselves inwardly." lol. So basically you just generalized a study where n=30 to the entirety of Farcaster or the world's population. Great job

I normally don't have inner monologue and feel pretty happy, just songs playing all day in my head, but when I do it's very negativistic and means I'm having a nervous breakdown 🫠

This is cruelly phrased and misleadingly stated. In his work generally Hurlburt argues that 20-50% of people have an inner monologue frequently, while almost everyone does sometimes. If you have an inner monologue anon, you are far from abnormal. Also this 2011 blog post was based on a survey of 30 students.

It’s funny this has been brought up since I was just thinking about how the human language may have slowed down the thought process and if individuals think quicker or slower based on the language they know. I read Stephen Hawkins built diagrams and worked problems out visualizing 3D models in his mind.

Wow, that's my training partner! I don't know where I would be without an inner voice.

I remember reading somewhere that Homer's works were the earliest pieces of literature to feature characters with some degree of inner thoughts Would love to find the article again

fun fact 50-80% of people sounds like nine out of ten doctors agree and psychologists cant reproduce anything.

I’m dumbstruck by this. Is that info replicated? As one who’s had to manage the inner monologue for ongoing maintenance of happiness and satisfaction, I can’t believe it’s not universal. And now there’s a discussion in my head about it - thanks

borodutch some accounts on farcaster have said - you lead witness to their own contradiction… fait accompli (paraphrase) i see their logic and yours. u and i haven’t had those types of disagreement. why? imo bc we debate logic, use absurd cases to show logic, and disregard any adjectives as spices.
