When you read, do you hear the words?
Yes. My inner voice is definitely a voice.
Same thing happens with music. If I close my eyes and imagine hearing a song I know well, I hear the song. Just for a moment, but I hear it.
I guess so, indirectly? If I'm thinking about it, I can't really imagine how the voice sounds. But I'm pretty sure I have some kind of voice.
Yuo, I mean, I maybe crazy, but it's like there's this voice inside my head...and not just for reading..for writing as well..
Of course I do. I have to or else I forget what I read.
I see your voices and raise you full-on five sensory immersion. Then I'll see that, and have full immersion at the same time as I'm paying attention to what's going on around me. It's a bit of a trip to walk down the sidewalk trying to avoid people while at the same time seeing a dragon about to fry your party.
If I am really interested in what I am reading then No. I only see the story.
If I try and listen for the voice in my head while reading or writing, then Yes. I guess for me it just takes more focus.
Possibly my actor side trying to squirm its way out, but when I read dialogue in a story, I sometimes try and act out how I think it is said in my voice. It's the same when I write, I just starts talking and write what I'm saying.
Sad, no? :redface:
If it is a good book, I can hear the voices in my head and see the scene playing out, just like a movie. If I can't stand the book or it is just rubbish, or boring, I generally don't or it is more like a infomercial playing and I fall asleep.
It really does depend on whether I allow my mind to wonder when I am reading or not. But I do enjoy being able to step inside a book and let it take over my imagination like a movie.
Every single time!!!
this happens to me all the time. i have different voices for the different characters in a story that really grabs me. I have one consistently monotonous voice for reading school stuff, that's the same dude who looks over my shoulder when I'm writing, commenting on every little thing.
