This question already has an answer here:

As per the title, how can I search only among my questions and answers?

I'd want to do this because I consider my questions and answers my own personal knowledge base and I'd like to be able to constrain the search within that.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I'm actually shocked this isn't in the FAQ, or at least, I don't see an entry on searching your own entries in the FAQ. –  casperOne Dec 21 '12 at 16:07
@JollyOldSaintNicholas That's fine. I think it will be more useful, if there is a tool to allow searching among the questions I favorite too. or making it a separate search option. –  user205243 Dec 21 '12 at 17:06

Guess what - the feature exists.

In the search box, put user:me and any results will be limited to yourself.

See on the search tips page, in the "Advanced Super Ninja Search Options" section.

Wow! wonderful, but does it extended to the favorites questions? –  user205243 Dec 21 '12 at 14:35
@sємsєм - That, I believe it doesn't. –  Oded Dec 21 '12 at 14:35
@sємsєм favorites are in your profile. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 21 '12 at 14:36
I'm talking about search features, not only listing. Suppose, I need a snippet of code regarded in question I asked or I answered which it is meant by "arrays of teams" I want to be able to search and get only the results found in my questions and answers. –  user205243 Dec 21 '12 at 14:39
@amanaP All of your questions and answers are in your profile as well. –  jadarnel27 Dec 21 '12 at 14:39
@jadarnel27 baah. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 21 '12 at 14:40
@Oded I tried [user:sємsєм] array and [user:me] array but there is no results (in my stackoverflow account) –  user205243 Dec 21 '12 at 14:41
@sємsєм - Sorry - the [] are not needed! –  Oded Dec 21 '12 at 14:44
