Talking aloud alone is a sign of great intelligence ... and this has been confirmed by psychologists


Have you ever found yourself talking to yourself aloud, perhaps even saying your own name as if you were talking to someone else, and then being surprised when someone overheard you?

Probably yes, and certainly the feeling you had was a strong sense of embarrassment! In fact, the action of talking aloud and to oneself has always been associated with insanity or in general with having "a screw loose".

Yet, as the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology states, that is not the case; rather, we can affirm that the opposite is true: speaking aloud alone is a manifestation of concentration and intelligence.

Various research studies have shown that speaking aloud to oneself, first of all, serves to complete tasks more efficiently. Repeating the action you are doing or enunciating aloud the various steps to take are actions that actually help you remember and achieve results faster. It is as if the desire to do something is associated with the encouragement of someone (our voice) that tells us to do it. 

Scientists at Bangor University in the United Kingdom have also linked this habit to brain functions. Speaking aloud helps to organize thoughts, memories, and emotions, especially in those people who experience an overcrowding of ideas. Such as with the stereotype of the scientist who speaks aloud, lost in their thoughts, their plans, and their conclusions, which could, after all, not be so absurd. Who thinks more, needs to use all the means available to give an order to their ideas, and talking to oneself out loud is one of the most effective methods.

So the next time you have a good chat with yourself, speaking aloud and alone, maybe to clarify your ideas about a choice to make or to remind yourself of the various tasks of the day, you do not have to feel embarrassed! As a matter of fact, you are demonstrating a higher than average level of creativity and intelligence!
