People Describe The Personality Of Their Inner Monologue

People Describe The Personality Of Their Inner Monologue
geralt/Pixabay

Many people have a voice in their head (or sometimes a few) that keeps a running commentary going about their daily life. Sometimes that voice can be encouraging, sometimes painfully critical, and sometimes more neutral.

For most people, this voice or voices don't seem like a separate entity, but just another part of themselves. Albeit a pretty annoying one, occasionally.


Reddit user brock024 asked:

"How would you describe the personality of the voice inside your head?"

But I Don't Want To

"what are you doing?"

"i dont know"

"well stop it, its not good for you"

"but i dont want to"

It's Me, And I'm Great

Technically, the voice is writing this. So, I’m great, I also love saying “man, you shouldn’t have done that” after he’s done something. It’s great seeing him emotionally crippled while trying to keep up the act that he’s fine. 10/10, let me in but just for the night.

Manipulative

Manipulative, depressed, a master at hiding reality. And very scary, I think coward too.

-slow_cheetah_gold

Damn. Spot on. Im more sad now.

Better Than Before

Used to be a lot more toxic and depressing, namely while I was living in an abusive home. Now they're more analytical and sympathetic.

There Are A Few

Well there is the quiet reasonable one, the loud screamer, the funny, the aggressive, the sarcastic, the logic, the wicked, the crazy, and a few more, and the benevolent sitting in the corner humming the Tetris music

Centered

Slightly calmer than me, is usually concerned with my well-being, logical and isn't subject to the usual "meh I'll do it tomorrow" attitude I frequently suffer from. Which means, it's super good at laying out the plans for me to follow, and the final question is whether I'm good at following them.

Frustrated or Inquisitive

Mine are mostly either feeling let down and frustrated that other people can’t see what I see, and make different decisions. Or the huh, I wouldn’t have thought of that inquisitive voice.

-ImpossibleHandle4

Which One?

I have the one that calls me worthless and questions my existence

I have the one that has a crush on literally anything within my line of sight

And I have the extremely smart one that drones on in my brain about the New Zealand autonomous state of Tokelau for 10 minutes straight when I'm bored

Kind Of A Jerk

​Oh he's an a**hole

-GlobsofKnobSlob

Same. Outer me is a nice person. Inner me wants someone to step up so I can release some pressure that's been building up.

-II_Confused

He's always talking sh*t but he's too afraid to catch these hands.

Voice? What Voice?

There was a study done and found that some people don't have a voice in their head.

-Vanillest

Seriously, I thought the voice was metaphorical. Are you f**kers actually talking inside your heads? Why?? Thoughts for me are purely conceptual, and the words only come when I have to wrap them around an idea.

-The_Lost_Octopus

Do both. Thinking in procedures or 3d space doesn't work great in words. Thinking through a logical fallacy or proof doesn't go great in colours. Contemplating the taste of apple in numbers isn't yummy.

-Apprehensive_Hat8986

Whatever the voice inside your head is like, even if it's a total jerk, you deserve to be happy. You are almost definitely your own worst critic, and it's okay to tell the voice to shove it and just enjoy life.

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

People Break Down Which Movies They Wish They Could Watch Again For The First Time

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
