Do you talk to yourself?

Speaking out loud to nobody is an extension of our inner dialog. It’s caused by a motor command being triggered automatically.

After that, inner speech emerges, and our thoughts become more like verbal sentences.

Once we’ve learned to connect our thoughts to our speech, we tend not to do it as much. But in adulthood, we still do it, and there are other reasons for this.

There are plenty of reasons why speaking out loud can be helpful for adults.

The people who learn through sound tend to repeat directions back to the person who gave them so they can remember.

It helps everyone remember something if they read it aloud instead of reading it in their inside voice.

It can help us to concentrate, depending on what we’re saying

Conversely, if people use their speech to direct their actions, it improves their performance in carrying out tasks by helping them remember what they’re supposed to be doing.
