how to find if i am talking to myself unconciously

so I know this sounds crazy but people have commented on it so like at work the boss was like the ...(main task) girl has a great attitude is a great worker but is always ranting. I swear she was talking about me since I know I am the only one who does that task and I do have those two good qualities. And so sometimes my mom has "guessed" something I was thinking in my brain and then she will say that she "knows" because she is my mother but she never does that to my sister who is also her daughter! And many other times when people who don't know me have wondered if I am ok...I already tried filming myself but I heard nothing...are there any other ways I could confirm my suspicions that I talk to myself????

Why don't you just ask your Mom or someone at work?

Huh? I have known people with Multiple Personality, have you had this checked? One doesn't know what the other one says or does.

Use a voice activated recorder.

"Ranting" is usually done deliberately, out loud, for others to hear.  Or on Facebook ;-)

If someone "catches" you......just say you are on the phone...........    Some of those cel phones are practically invisible.

I figured out how much I talk to myself when I wore teeth whitening strips. You put them on & then wear them for however long. I realized how much I wasn't saying trying to keep them on my teeth.

I constantly whistle under my breath. It is a nervous habit that began when I was in 2nd grade, decades ago.

It is ABSOLUTELY stress related.

I think using a voice activated device to check yourself is an excellent idea.

If this is a stress related habit it will be easier for you to manage it once you have a sense of when/where/why it is occurring.

...................

You mention the word "ranting"

 

: ranting
  1. speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way.
    "she was still ranting on about the unfairness of it all"
    synonyms:fulminate, go on, hold forth, vociferate, sound off, spout, pontificate,bluster, declaim

     

    Is this what you are speaking of?

     

    Or would a better choice of words?

     

    Have someone that will not ENABLE you, give several examples.

     

    Good luck !!!!

Or your sister or other relatives or friends.  I'm surprised that your Mom didn't say you talked out loud sometime over these many years!!
