Internal monologue

Post by Lord_Blacknose » 07 Oct 2004, 22:55

I'm guesing everyone has this, like a constant naration in your head of whats going on. Just in normal speach patterns and stuff, usually illustrated too, but all completelly in your head and automatic.

It just makes me really curious what other peoples narrators are saying, whenever i speak to someone, or even when im just people watching i wonder; its one of those things that i can never get my head all the way around...

What do you reckon? what format does your monologue come in, and more to the point, whats it saying right now?

curiosity is getting the better of me....

Peace

i find when talking about something that you cant get your head round like this, especially things to do with your brain, you have to take your initial reaction. mine just said 'not much'

The voice in my head can be quite monotonous and always kinda hushed. I don't realise it's there half the time, even if I'm by myself.
It's a fucking fascinating thing.
It's funny if I think something bad next to a person and then start trying to cover my tracks and start thinking other things in case they know what I'm thinking.
Now this thread has set off my mind into a stream of chit chat, and it's all timed with some fucked up reality issue I just had a few minutes ago. All a little spooked.

Good thread idea though Joe. Right on.

mine kinda has a weird second-way of speech. i'll be thinking about something realy horrible or awful and as soon as i (personally) notice how disturbing what i'm actually saying is, my internal voice repeats it or elaborates it. it's fucking horrible and i used to be really scared by it.

joe, does it ever say really fucked up shit? then you kinda have an other voice, or your own perhaps telling it to shut up. i dont mean literally telling it to shut up, but y'know. i cant really explain it.

I do, like when I said about trying to cover up thoughts, I have a herd of voices it seems trying to do it...all very nervously.
My mind is being eerily quiet right now. It knows what's going on. 8)

Nope just got a smug, lone voice going "yeeeeeeeeeah" in a new yoik gangster style. Fucking hell.

my internal monologues are a mess. and as soon as I'm alone one of them always manages to get itself vocalised and I start talking to myself. usually arguing with the one that didn't get control of the mouth.

i think i have two. ones usually singing and the others talking about what im looking at. occasionally the singing one will argue with the non singing one, but usually its ok by itself, highlighting the things people do, or how discustng something is.

i hope i get what your talking about
he'd get it

yeah you have, its the voice(s) that talk at you in your head constantly...

Lately I can't actually remember starting points of conversations on what the hell some people are going on about. So I either find myself saying "I have no idea what you're on about" or trying to figure out what the conversation is on about. But normally it isn't worth trying to remember!

I also have the "why am I in the conversation?" Or "why am I speaking to you?" I fuckin' hate when someone is talking about soemthing you really don't give a shit about, but for some reason you sit there and listen to the whole of their shyte.

I also question all the time if the person is lieing, or if they want to be in the conversation. I've started to think a lot more about why people tell me things. Like secrets and why the hell should they burden me with such stupid trivia things. Then suddenly you're questioning everyone and everything. And you actually realise that you're starting to get rather paranoid? "Why did they look at me like that?" "Why did they chose that word?" "Why don't they look in my eyes?" "Why the fuck are the looking in my eyes?" "DO I EVEN KNOW YOU?"

Step back from the drugs kids!

I have one monologue that acts in my best interest and another that's constantly urging me to implode. It's so self-destructive.
I never do stupid things without realising. I'm always fully aware; it's not like it doesn't occur to me that this action is foolish long-term; it's just that most of the time I don't care. Ridiculous huh? Wish I could be one of those people who could in all honesty say "it seemed like a good idea at the time". It absolves you from the aftermath. It's not your fault. I'm responsible from the outset.

Mine's mostly automatic, which is when it usually comes up with the most interesting stuff to listen to. But it's not so good when I take over. Kind of like breathing. Also, when I'm stoned it gets more intersting, and it's like there are two people in my head. one saying stuff and the other one listening, and I feel more like im the guy listening than making it up. I don't recognise the voice or link it to any person I know or have heard. I know it's not my voice in my head that's in my head. Although I can change it to someone I do know if I wanted to. Like I could have Billy Connelly as my internal monolog.

when you read this you hear a voice in your head yeah? That's your internal monolog telling you what it says.
