ABSTRACT
The article offers information on self-talk. It refers to the ongoing dialogue people have with themselves that determines their behavior. Self-talk reflects and creates individual's emotional states so that when the self-talk is negative individuals become more stressed, less confident, and more concerned with other people's opinion, according to psychologist Shad Helmstetter. In addition, people tends to believe their self-talk is real and objective, and are not always aware that it comes from a feeling or believe they have. Another way to look at self-talk is as the expression of what people believe is true about a situation. There are many forms of negative self-talk including awfulizing, catastrophizing, overgeneralizing, polarized thinking, and shoulding.
