If you think in words and sentences all it means is that you are likely a verbal-aural person.
Also, if you have an articulated inner monologue, is how you write/converse similar to how you have your inner monologue, in terms of grammar, idioms, accent? Or is the way you conduct your inner monologue markedly different from the way you actually write/converse? |
I would like to know, because it will give me some ability to better relate to people, if I know that what lies beneath a person is not simply his unarticulated feelings, but also articulated speech. If I know people to conduct an inner monologue similar to how they speak, I think I can truly "understand" a person, know them inside and out, instead of knowing the outside (the conversation). Basically, if I can simply know the form of how people think, I can more easily relate to people, even if I don't know the content of their thoughts
If you think in terms of "articulated speech" then you are likely a writer of some sort, because it means that you are a verbal thinker who thinks a lot, hence you are so good at it.
Most verbal people don't actually think in terms of proper paragraphs. If you heard their thoughts it would seem haphazard and highly confusing to you.
Only verbal people who fancy themselves as/are thinkers will have a proper comprehensible inner monologue or dialogue or trialogue or whatever.
Nowadays I have a good control of my mental processes, I can switch from visual thinking to sound thinking to internal dialogue, to sensual thinking and mix and match them all as I need. Each way of thinking is useful for different things.
Ilya, PLEASE TELL ME HOW YOU CAME BY THIS ABILITY, and I will forever count you among my dearest and closest.
Unless, of course, when you say you can "switch" you mean for ten minutes or so.
