I talk/think to myself a lot. But it would be inaccurate to say that I am talking to myself. in my head, I am talking to someone else (a real person). Rehearsing a conversation that I am expecting to have (for better or worse). Either I am anticipating a conversation I am going to have to have with my boss or a conversation with a friend. I get trapped in my head as I rehearse this conversation, filling in the other person's side of the conversation with the bits that I think they are likely to respond with. A part of me expects that everyone does this, but I think I do it at a level beyond what is normal.
I could be dwelling on a conversation (or argument as well) that I am expecting to have, and for an hour going through it as I work. Figuring out what I am going to say as I anticipate what the other person will say, and then what I will say, etc... All this work for a conversation that might never even happen.
Is this typical for a certain type? or do I need to seek psychiatric help and get some pills for anxiety or something?
