    I know for a fact it is.

    I remember in high school I'd purposely yawn to see if anyone else would follow and surprisingly there was at least one person who did it each time.

    I've also done the thing where you pack up your stuff a little early before class ends and see if anyone else follows.

    It works.

            Tip:

            Here is a psychologically based method for casually gauging just who might be checking you out in a crowded place: yawning. The theory goes that if you yawn, anyone who’s surreptitiously watching you won’t be able to resist yawning too, giving themselves away (and marking them as a susceptible target for wooing).

              Davey's right. There have been actual studies done on it.

              They've also discovered that it keeps the brain cool.

                Just reading this thread makes me yawn.








                ... That sounded a lot more troll-like than I intended.

                    Studies have shown it is.

                    Did you know SCRATCHING is also contagious?

                    Studies have also been done on that. If you see someone else scratch, subconsciously your brain will make you scratch an "itch."

                      Maybe to hide it if I'm being a troll, I'll say "Your post makes my brain cold"

                        It is a mental perception that one witnesses and then reacts to it.

                        To answer the poll... yes it is.

                          It is but its all in the head. When someone yawns near me no matter how awake I am I always do. Still wonder why.

                            Mythbusters did an experiment with this and said it was contagious.

                            But yea its all psychological...you see the word or the action and it just pops up on your mind to!
