Is anybody aware of any studies that show what percentage of people are capable of internal dialogue or people who think like that regularly? I'd be interested to know if certain demographics had disproportionate amounts of people capable of having an inner monologue/dialogue.
>>39761 Unlikely anyone looking into demographics of inner dialog. tbo I was surprise to learn some people don't have it. Its primarily just deaf and autistic people though, which isn't that surprising quick search found https://mymodernmet.com/inner-monologue/ https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2017/05/visual-images-often-intrude-on-verbal-thinking-study-says/ (attached) An asymmetrical relationship between verbal and visual thinking: Converging evidence from behavior and fMRI
This guy claims inner speech only accounted for 20-25% and equal amounts for inner pictures and inner feelings. His sample size was only 30 students https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/pristine-inner-experience/201110/not-everyone-conducts-inner-speech https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcz9Icsx424 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBOQCXv5L6Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5KC_PkRL-c Calling bullshit This sounds like a fucking retarded meme Twitter faggots saying "Oh I'm special I think in pictures"
>>39764 I think the guy in the first clip sounds somewhat right. I don't know though. People have to be able to both visualize and have inner speech. They way these people are talking about it makes it seem like there is no middle ground.
>>39765 Agree. While I can say my inner dialog is really strong, that's not to say that cant internalize images on occasion, perhaps some people think in images more often. Would guess maybe more so with a younger generation that grew up saturated with time spent in front of youtube vids and flatscreens. Perhaps a child that spent the first two years with an iPad would be different than a kid that spent the same time playing with toys and imaginary friends. Later in life, the iPad kid might by more the visual type learner/thinker Guy in first clip is Russell T Hurlburt Ph.D., same guy from >>39764 psychologytoday post
95%? I've asked this before and never talked to someone without an internal dialogue.
>>39791 Yeah, like I said I think 25% (again, survey that started this meme was of 30 college students) was complete bs, unless your deaf or on the spectrum, there is a voice in your head.
I imagine if you include Bantu people or Aborigines you'll varying results, just look at their language dictionaries and behaviors. My hypothesis is that people, like computers, have different grade hardware for processing and memory. Similar to IQ and brain size.
