ok peeps, you know when you read something in your head, who is it that is reading it to you, Is it yourself? or someone else?
I am an english girl and i get an american guy sometimes, probably due to all the movies I watch but I also get a really posh lady or sometimes its just myself :cool:

If there is someone else in your head, you have a problem.

It's yourself, no matter who it sounds like. It's like having a voice signature on someone. If you are reading something and the character reminds you of someone you know, then your mental voice changes to suit. So if it were an emotive story, you would get male voices for the males and so forth, but if it was something that doesn't really draw anything on the emotional side, then it would be your own voice.

feels kinda weird that your brain can automatically interperate what the text is trying to tell you e.g happy or sad, boy or girl
meh, it seems weird to me

It depends what I'm reading. On this BBS, it's what I think the person sounds like. Anywhere else, it changes a lot.

After the voice samples thread, when ever I read a post made by someone, I read it in the way their voice sounds.....okay this thread is retarded.

i don't hear any voices when i read.... no little me reading to myself or any of that.

this does remind me of a story from one of feynmen's books though. he was testing people's ability to keep time mentally and he found that he couldn't keep accurate time when reading, but others could, but he could keep accurate time while talking and others couldn't. after investigating further he found that those that could read and keep good time were the ones that kinda said "one, two, three, four..." to themselves in their head, while the ones that could keep good time and talk had a mental stopwatch ticking by in their heads. so it was an overlap of either internal and external sounds that interfered with people's timing or an overlap of internal and external imagery that did, but external imagery with internal sounds didn't interfere and vice versa.

TTIG : I tried to get my innervoice to shut up while I read (and type this), and couldn't. So I guess Endy is special.
