This is a serious question I've been wondering about, you know that inner voice which offers you great advice and analysis of the situation I'm pretty sure we all have that, I was wondering if deaf people can hear it.

So pit, care to enlighten me on this subject?

How screwed up and annoying would it be if you heard someone else's voice instead of your own. Obviously knowing what your own voice sounded like Like having Rolph Harris's voice... That would make me wanna kill myself.

...inner voice?

I'm sure all schizophrenic people like you hear those voices, even the deaf ones. Don't worry

Not the inner voice:"I want you to kill people"

Like the voice that you think with, if suddenly you have been surrounded by 20 men with guns you go to your inner voice and think with him.

Yes, but it's mute.

If it's mute how do they know it exsists?

Does it become a inner hand that speaks sign language?

..This is possible. My final thought on the subject is a big question mark.

I don't think they hear a voice, because they don't know what a voice sounds like. They know sign language obviously, perhaps their thoughts are relayed with sign language in their head.
#12
I s'pose if they were born deaf, they never learnt to speak and didn't hear any voices, so they wouldn't. So they probably would see sign in their head. If they went deaf after they learnt to speak and have heard what people sound like, then yes, they probably will.

There has to be atleast 1 deaf person on UG that can answer this.

But a person who is deaf doesn't know what voice is. That's like if I was the only person who could see the color "Spiffle." There's no way I could ever describe it to you because you've never been exposed to it.

It wouldn't be sign language, it'd be writing. I think in writing.

I generally don't tend to have an inner monologue. The ideas are conceptual and they're just in my head fully formed.
I don't imagine that it's a lot different for the deaf.

Some people don't even think with words or voices, some people think only with pictures. That's weird as.

To all the people saying they dont have an inner voice, when you have to make a tough decision dont you just like sit in your room having an inner monologue with yourself weighing the pros and the cons.

I believe that a person who has become deaf hears a voice, and someone who has always been deaf has a "sense" of a voice. Like.. When you do something, you don't always think "click mouse," there's something in your head that.. Err.. Holy crap, I have no words for this. If you understand what I'm saying, great. If not, I tried.

Do you really hear your inner voice as spoken sound of words in your head? I mean, could you describe that voice as you would with real voice?

Even if I think words in my head, they are more like written text than spoken one. And I usually don't, this is just when writing or thinking of what to say and how will it sound.

I've "asked" a guy this, and he said what I said in the above post. The translator guy look awkward as hell asking him, but I got an answer.

EDIT - I think in words

That inner voice inside my head is my voice, it is basiclly me that I can talk to.

So there's no inner you that you can talk with?

Also, were you born deaf or was it caused by something else?

Whenever I write essays and things of the like, I always think in Rod Serlings voice, simply because it feels smarter.

I Don't hear his voice, I just think in it...Let that soak in...

Its a conscious or some odd thing like that. I always assumed your head just thought something and you knew what it was. I dont think you have to hear it whether your deaf or not.

That's actually mind blowing to me. I mean, i can picture my front door easily, obviously. I can imagine a little event happening in my head. But i can't form any real thought with pictures.

What about when you're thinking deeply about mad concepts and shit, you have to think with sentences then, surely.
