My friend once pointed out that the voice you hear in your head when you think - your internal monologue or thoughts - isn't the same as your
Weird. Mine is, as far as I can tell. Pretty close anyway. Although off-topic, it would be interesting to take a poll and see how many people have the
same "thinking voice" as "talking voice" or not. I've looked into the subject with my friends and talked about it a bit with other people. It
seems that some people don't even have this "voice in their head" o_O. From what I have seen, the more intelligent people seem to have it, while
people who are less intelligent seem to live as zombies, simply reacting to situations without thinking logically. I have also met a few people that
swear the voice in their head isn't their own, but independantly talks to them... which I guess is where the whole "devil made me do it" thing came
from. All I know is that to me, it is essentially the same as my voice, constantly talking to myself in my head. I think everyone intelligent does
this and it is normal. I just don't like it when people talk to themselves out loud. lol.
Ever try to sleep with the closet door open? *creeps*
Haha. I swear I must be the most paranoid person out there. Lately it has cooled down a bit, but there was a time I was absolutely nuts about this
sort of thing. I always used to check under my bed, in my closet, etc. I didn't believe that there were any "monsters" in my bed or anything. I
don't know what sparked this irrational fear and need to check on it. I have gotten over those ones a little bit, although I'm still afraid to let
my feet hang over the side or edge of the bed at night. Now it is mostly all the other numerous things. I don't believe my basement is haunted or
anything, but I have this urge and sudden attack of absolutely panic that causes me to run up from the basement every night when I am done watching
TV/on the computer (which are both located in the basement). I run up the stairs and shut the light off and close the door as quickly as I can. Then I
do the same thing making my way up the "upstairs" stairs. I don't believe there is anything in my house, but for that few seconds I certainly feel
like something could be behind me. I also can't go in the bathroom without kicking/pushing aside the shower curtain to make sure nobody is behind it.
And the one that freaks me out the most.... looking in mirrors or out of windows in the dark. I probably have more of these little quirks but those
are all that I can think about for now.
As for the 'people watching you'..... did you ever notice that whenever you go to look at someone else, they are either already looking at you or
they immediately turn and look at you? I can understand maybe if you are right beside them they can see the movement out of their eye and look to see
what you are doing, but I have tested this and it works even in large areas like at the grocery store i work at. You can look at people that are as
far across the store as you can see, and at least half the time they will turn and look at you, somehow knowing :\. It usually only seems to work if
you know the person, though; for some reason...
