I'm an aspiring engineer. I stumbled upon autocommunication as a way to visualize and think about a problem in depth. Wikipedia defines autocommunication as:

Autocommunication is a term used in communication studies, semiotics and other cultural studies to describe communication from and to oneself.

It's like forcing my brain to devote its resources to the problem at hand. I know from anecdotes that other engineers / scientists also engage in autocommunication. The literature I have found about autocommunication mostly deals with psychological concepts or marketing. However I mainly interested in empirical evidence supporting it's problem solving potential, possibly discussing different techniques of auto-communication if there are different types.
