Theories, Measures, Structures and Influence Factors of Self-Talk
Self-talk should be defined as verbalizations or statements addressed to the self. It is multidimen-sional in the structure and is somewhat dynamic in the contents. Self-talk is also an important part of psychological interventions and plays a huge role in the aspects of cognition, emotion and be-havior. The following from the concept of self-talk, measurement and structure introduces what is self-talk; through empirical study, we reveal the importance of self-talk in the aspects of psycho-logical intervention. Finally, we pointed out the lack of domestic research and hope domestic peers to pay more attention to promote the development of self-talk technology.
