Would you consider talking to yourself healthy or unhealthy?

It depends.
If you have a healthy social life, healthy. Just keeps you going on track, sometimes hearing things aloud make everyday actions easier.
If you don't have much of a social life, unhealthy because you are talking to yourself and don't feel the need to talk to anyone else.

I talk to myself..Here is one of my favorite quotes though:

The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
Alice Kingsley: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

Healthy only if its in a positive way. My health teacher in highschool told us its good to talk to ourselves by complementing ourselves and that makes our self esteem go up.

I don't think it's fine, well not for me anyway......because it turns just into small talk and then you start doing it full time.....and can't tell the difference between reality and fiction.

It depends on why the person is doing it. If the person thinks, they're talking to imaginary friends or people who aren't there. It's probably not a healthy thing. If a person is talking to sort out a complex problem or to help them focus, I don't think it's health or unhealthy. It's all about what is effective. It's probably not good during a test since it might be considered cheating if the person is giving away the answer. That could also be a symptom of a problem if the person can't control it.

Freud said " its perfectly ok to talk to oneself as long as you don't believe that a separate individual is responding"..

Depends on whether you like yourself or not ! If you are your own best friend and can talk to yourself like a "Dutch uncle" (look it up!) then go for it! But you just "shoot yourself in the foot" if you're your own worst enemy!

I've heard numerous times that it is
a sign of intelligence. It's just a
way of thinking out loud.
