Did You Say Something?
Ever walk yourself through a task out loud at work? Ever berate yourself verbally because you misfiled an important document? Talking to yourself at home might be a normal occurrence, but talking to yourself at work might lead people to think you’re crazy.
Does it matter if it helps you do your job? Apparently 96% of people talk to themselves, and the practice can sometimes help you through a sticky situation. As this article from The Wall Street Journal claims, these conversations are great at self-regulation, where you keep yourself in check.
If you just started a new job, you should probably tone it down a bit on the self-talk until you get a bit more comfortable. But a quiet verbal nudge in the right direction couldn’t hurt. [The Wall Street Journal]
