I don't think I have learned this concept yet.

Maybe 17. The first time I ever shared my own thoughts was when I wrote an anti-society blog (was big into anarchism) on myspace.com. It was my first hypergraphic experiences and it was very early in the morning.
Before then I don't even remember having these types of thoughts.
In the last couple of years I've gotten better at it.

I only really began fully to kill the impulse to generate phrases a few years ago. But the point at which I started consistently trying was around age twenty.

So I don't mean that I can consistently communicate now. I mean, most of the time I can't. But when I can't, the reason is different now than it used to be. I lose language but I don't revert to saying whatever is plausible and when I do try to communicate I know I shouldn't rattle off just anything. So maybe I didn't explain it enough. If a person is able to describe their inner workings accurately they've probably hit that point. Usually.


I think I understand now. Are you referring to something like 'automatic' responses rather than thought-out, personal responses? IIRC, I was in my mid teens when it occurred to me there was an alternative to, what were for me, scripted answers. I still use the scripts, but they are more of a self-defense/social mechanism now than automatic.
