Things I overheard while talking to myself

nothing else



Méi shénme




Gar nichts



Hmm, interesting, I guess I have to visit an Audiologist to check on my hearing.

Still, this—hearing nothing—could be a good thing, because when we say something repeatedly, we are likely to believe it with increasing confidence, even if it’s not true.

It turns out that we actually listen to ourselves when we speak and trust what we hear.

Therefore, not only should we be careful about what we go around saying, we should also ensure that it’s valid, because our brain is always listening.

listen to learn something new

Incidentally, have you noticed that “silent” and “listen” are made up of exactly the same alphabets?
