But yeah, do you yawn when other people yawn, or even type it?
Since some people are probably able to hold it in.

I have the uncanny ability to witness other people yawn without having to yawn myself. It really is a super power of sorts. Too bad it has no practicality in regards to crime-fighting. XD

I yawn way too much which makes other people yawn. I heard:

This sentence can even make some people yawn!

You know, Slowpoke's Japanese name is Yadon. Doesn't that sound like yawn? I sometimes can't tell what Slowpoke are supposed to be. I heard that they are based off of a Giant Salamander mixed with a Hippo. I'm wondering where the ears came from.

Once I see someone yawn I automatically start to yawn. Even reading the word yawn makes me yawn. I'm yawning right now because of it! :D

I'm usually the one causing the yawns, not vice versa:p I'm habitually yawning. I was yawning while weight lifting yesterday But yes- it's very contagious. I think only sneezing trumps yawning!

Yawning is very contagious to me. Even through text. (Just yawned now orz.)

I don't think it started until after my mom told me that yawns were contagious. Then I thought about it every time I saw someone yawning (just yawned again) and eventually I think it just became subconscious. D:

(Once more for good measure, I guess. I'm not even kidding.)

I don't yawn unless I see someone yawning in person. Seeing or talking about yawns doesn't faze me in the slightest. I can even stretch and ward off the the yawning urge if it gets too strong.

If you see someone yawn, taking a deep breath usually cancels the urge to yawn. (just don't let the breath transition to a yawn)

Whenever I yawn, a drought somewhere in Johto ceases. That's how powerful a yawn is, right Slowpoke?

Yawning is extremely contagious. I yawned three times while reading this whole thread.

No, I don't. Even if I do, I'm faking it. I don't get yawns when I see other people yawning, it comes naturally. Therefore this slowpoke avatar doesn't suite me :<

I will yawn spontaneously, sometimes without being tired, and I have no idea why.

Oddly enough, I haven't experienced contagious yawning. Maybe it's because I'm usually the only one around who's constantly tired :/

I yawn when people yawn.
I yawn at times when certain animals yawn. Like a cat or dog.

I sometimes yawn when people (usually guys) do really good Chewbacca 'roars'.

Yes; I yawn randomly, when someone else yawns, or when I'm tired.

When I saw the thread title I yawned and now that I keep thinking and typing yawn, I yawn. D:
Someone please help me before I yawn to death. :(

Yawning is very contagious, whenever someone yawns I always end up yawning myself. Just reading the first post made me yawn. I'm actually yawning as I am typing this
