Does anyone else have an inner dialogue going on in their head sometimes. Sometimes explaining something and sometimes directed at a person you know but is not currently there?

Every moment, of every day since I can remember. Stupid voice in my head is my best friend. :(

All the time as well, but not the friendly kind

More like the one that keeps you from doing things,
the kind thats built from the negative things people said,
and makes you remember your awkward moments,
makes fun of you, keeps telling that you shouldn't try at all etc.

But not really an exact person, more like a mix of peoples worst moments

Worst of all there doesn't seem to be a way to shut it up

Yes I like to discuss things with myself since I am intelligent and get good answers from myself.

I also have what others might think is an imaginary friend. I didn't have one as a child so this shows progression :D

Always. The first time I know for sure I did this I was five or so. Usually the "other person" is someone I fear a bit. The visuals aren't quite as detailed as they used to be though. It's a lot like Madeleine L'engle's "star-watching rock" from A Wrinkle in Time, which may be why I like her books so much.

I think most people have this. It's probably the source of the image of an angel on one shoulder and a demon on the other telling you what you should do!

"inner role model", I like that. Of course there are bad role models and good ones. Framed this way, I suppose one's internal guidance is a choice and not automatic.

Yes, it never shuts up. I remember a time when I was about 4 years old....I kept hearing my thoughts and I cried because I couldn't make it stop. My grandad didn't know what to do.
