Abstract: This article raises the question of how self-talk mediates self-awareness. It is argued that the process of acquiring self-informationcan be seen as a problem-solving task, and that self-talk can facilitate this process (as it does for any other problem) by promoting aprecise formulation and approach to the problem, by adequately focusing attention on the task, and through constant self-evaluations. Acomplementary analysis of the possible characteristics of an effective internal dialogue in the acquisition of self-information isundertaken. Among other things, taking others perspective through self-talk, possessing a rich vocabulary about oneself, and payingattention to the content of one s self-talk are believed to be important in that respect. Clinical implications raised by this analysis are alsodiscussed.
