Study: Talking to yourself may help you find lost objects

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (KWWL) -

Trouble finding your keys? Well, research shows talking to yourself out loud may help you find them quicker. 

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison had adult participants look at pictures of objects and then asked them to find them. They found the participants were able to find things faster when they were told to repeat the name of the objects as they searched. 

Researchers also found that children who talk to themselves are better able to process step-by-step actions like tying their shoes.
