Listening to Inner Speech: Can Students Listen to Themselves Think?
Robson, Deborah C.; Young, Raymond
International Journal of Listening, v21 n1 p1-13 2007
Ninety students at a state university completed questionnaires about use of inner speech dealing with consequential matters, routine matters, and during study. Items were included about media's role in their study environments. Reliable measures were developed for use of inner speech during routine matters, consequential matters, and during study. Regression results revealed that inner speech for consequential matters explained more of the variance of inner speech during study than inner speech for routine matters and that the reported frequency of study in quiet conditions significantly contributed to the variance of inner speech during study. Analysis of variance results showed that students with higher grade point averages found that quiet interfered less with listening to inner speech than did students with lower grade point averages.
