Psychologists say it is normal for people to talk to themselves because it can change how they think and feel. Ethan Kross, director of the Emotion and Self Control lab at the University of Michigan, says self-talk can help a person envision alternative scenarios and prepare reactions or new strategies. Kross adds, “What’s interesting to me is not who the person is who is doing it. But that so many people are doing this and it suggests that this is a real phenomenon.”—Jim L. Wilson & Jim Sandell
