Harvard Research Finds Talking About Yourself Is Rewarding 
Do you like talking about yourself? Answer truthfully, because it's estimated that 30-40% of all of your 
speech has to do with you. But why do we like to talk about ourselves? As it turns out, our brains find 
self-disclosure to be very rewarding. 
“Self-disclosure is a behavior that we do all of the time, day in and day out,” says Diana Tamir, a 
Harvard researcher. She wondered why everyone talks about their lives. So, she studied people’s brain 
activity. What would happen when people answered questions about their favorite subject: themselves? 
Tamir asked really mundane questions like “do you prefer coffee over tea?” or “do you like to 
snowboard?” Harvard researchers watched the brain while people answered those questions. Research 
found that certain parts of the brain were more active when people talked about themselves. And that 
those parts are also responsible for the thrills of good food, money and drug addiction. 
So does Tamir think this explains the popularity of Facebook and Twitter? "On Twitter and Facebook, 
people are primarily posting about what they're thinking and feeling at the moment. This research is 
one piece of evidence about why we may use those sites,” she says.
