Today I learned... That some people don't have an inner monologue. Where you essentially talk to yourself in your own head, hearing your own voice, without physically verbalizing. And that some cannot do that.
I am totally surprised. I thought everyone could do that. But apparently many don't.
What I want to know, is for those that don't, how do you work out programming problems? How do you plan to write things before writing them? As I write this, I am just thinking the words in my head as if I was speaking them out loud. But I am not verbalizing.
I have a conversation with myself in my head about what to write. Or what my code is doing, or anything else.
It seems that those that don't, think in more abstract thoughts and have to verbalize them.
But I want to know more about this from others. Do you have one? Do you not? If not how do you deal with planning, reading, writing, or problem solving in your head.
I would love to hear. Or from those that know more about the topic.
Adrian Holovaty@adrianholovatyWhat?! Some people have constant internal monologues?
