What is the clarity of your inner voice?

It is like this, I talk in my head as if everything is muffled. It's not specifically with clarity. There is no tone.

Sometimes I get really clear sounds like in Zelda when Link hears the fair say "Listen". But that is when I am semi-awake.

Is there tone in your head part of your inner voice?

Most of the time the monologue is in a primordial state where I can apply whatever filter I like. If I ask what tone it is in, it will become a tone in response but I can never definitively say it is that tone because if I do it can change and this transition is so seamless I can't put my finger on it.

Reading your post, the tone changed when you said "It is like this" rather than what I'd assume ("It's like this"). So basically it becomes what my expectations are. When you said "Listen" I could hear it in the intended intonation. If you show me a photo of someone I know and tell me it's their writing I'll read in their voice.

When thoughts come without discernable stimulus, they'll often either be declarative statements in the primordial tone (sometimes ones I don't agree with) or sound bites from real or imagined scenarios. These often leave me to ponder what is going on in my unconscious that produces such messages.

when i deaden myself with weed, no. when i'm sober my imagination can travel in all kinds of avenues and i'll say voices are more likely to come just before sleep and usualy they would be semi-dreamlike and of various intents and tonalities. if i'm awake my mind skews way more to the visual/audial observational and internal conceptual states. when i do have fun and imagine voices is if i utter them, hard for me to imagine this or that at times but if i talk like it the assimilation eases.


if i smoke weed after not doing so for a long time any moment can be profound, any meaningless sequence of coincidental sounds can become a grand abyssal orchestra or a house beat so multi-layered and universal that no machine can capture the depth of it, or a million monks droning droning the same untruth.

But when I think my voice is totally there somewhere in the mind esp. if language is involved. doesn't sound like me but is mind voice. soundless yet merely by being detached from the physicality of communication it can be more flexible imo. but too objective at times---if i want to add emotion to something sometime reading it aloud is the best way to go.

my inner voice is not real to me, it is not something I hear as sound. something else?

My inner monologue sounds like a deranged Spike Spiegel ranting about conspiracy theories but in a nonchalant way, like he already knows you believe him and now he's just laying out the horrifying details and implications, playing it cool but it's a facade for the anguish.

Mine is a calm womans narration, like she is reading my own thought voice, and its fairly clear and soft. Its always present, even as a child, it was a womans voice so, maybe its my souls voice.

If I had to characterize the way I communicate with myself I would say like a person that has mastered a few crafts really well and everything else is a sporadic crackhead looking for their next fix, every time having to draw out more effort to reach the same high.
