Have you ever heard of the phrase "rubber ducking"?

It comes from programming, but it applies here too.

Don't worry, you're completely normal... relatively speaking of course ;-)

Yes. And I insult myself too whenever I make a stupid mistake.

I do this but with the caveat that I'm alone. It can be very irritating in a work environment when someone is rambling about the issue at hand while others try to focus.

What ever works for you. If sounding it out loud helps, fine.

I always talk myself through problems, but its definitely weird. You'll know when normal people walk into the room and catch you talking to yourself, the look says it all

I watch variant sudoku puzzles on Cracking the Cryptic, so when I solve puzzles myself, I do it in the presenter's voice, often out loud.  And accent.  He's British and I am not.
