Whether you mutter like John McClane , scheme like Carl Spackler , or procrastinate like Hamlet , you talk to yourself. Everyone does. Many psychologists believe thinking itself is a form of self-talk. In short, we get to know ourselves the same way we get to know other people: by having a conversation. Self-talk can be seen as the bridge between these two selves.

The practice can be incredibly helpful, or detrimental, depending on how you go about it. The multi-university team emphasize in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology that shifts in the language that people use to refer to themselves influences their ability to regulate their behavior, thoughts, and feelings. It also lessens feelings of stress for people who are feeling vulnerable to social anxiety and is makes for calming counter-measure in post-event after the big game, the job interview, etc.

Motivational self-talk, particularly during sports, has been shown to help keep energy levels high and increase endurance performances. On the flip side, studies have shown that critical self-talking in lower-self esteem and an increased likelihood that the negative self-talking is going to continue. When people used self-talk, they had a much a better ability to appraise the situation. The key to success here is to think or say short, precise, and consistent statements. But perhaps the most meaningful benefit of self-talk is that it motivates self-leadership — the process that establishes the personal direction and motivation needed for success.
