When someone you are talking to is critiquing elements (you provide) of the conversation:

1. with their friend who is listening at the same time.
or
2. in their head as a mental note which results in a period of silence and delayed response.

Note: The critiquing must occur during the conversation and not after, as that is termed as logging instead. Critiquing before is remote judging.
example 1 :
You to Person A: Hey there, Mr. Brown-Shoes! How about that local sports team!

Person A to Person B: Can you believe this guy trying to sound like Monty Burns...

You to Person A: Hey man stop debugging me...

example 2:
You to Person A: Hey there, Mr. Brown-Shoes! How about that local sports team!

Person A (thinks): Oh my god, this guy sounds nothing like Mr Burns.
