So, im not going to go into depth about this because it's pretty crazy.

Yawning = agreeing with one's own, or another's thought, based off our intuitive judgment. I can't tell you how many times ive thought "Hmm, i bet she want's to sit in a different position" referring to my friend's Dog. She'll yawn, and then 5 seconds later readjust her seating.

Im not going to give the hundreds upon hundreds of occurrences that would somewhat suggest this hypothesis, but i will say that when i mentioned it in a car full of people, everyone yawned at the same time, except for me.

*As an aside, because stating this as an absolute obviously yielded staunch absolute responses in denial, this is only a HYPOTHESIS and is meant to be tested by you, yourselves, if you feel like doing so.

Can you provide more substance to back your claim/hypothesis?

Yawning is what now?



A yawn is a reflex of simultaneous inhalation of air and stretching of the eardrums, followed by exhalation of breath. Pandiculation is the act of yawning and stretching simultaneously.[1] Yawning is commonly associated with tiredness, stress, overwork, lack of stimulation and boredom, though recent studies show it may be linked to the cooling of the brain


We yawn when we are tired or lack oxygen since when did it mean agreeing with ones own , im confused





Yawn, from Old English 'Ginian' and 'Gionian' meaning to "Open the mouth wide, gape,"


you beat me to it yourboycal2

My spirit guides are telling me to take what has been given for the moment, and to explore this focus on your own terms.

Absolution is a hell of a drug. Yawning can be used for syncronicity.

Oh no what am i saying, of course it's just oxygen. Lol.

Some research suggest that yawning indicates social status within a group. Other research indicate that it cools the brain...who knows for sure. I just know that it's contagious as all heck. And fun when friends as susceptible to it's influence

All reasonable hypotheses as well! Fun to think and wonder upon the relativity of things.

Edited for Not worth mentioning. Hopefully some interest can be shared, as it is obvious some have taken notice.

A bit of trivia I received from my doctor:
Asthmatics tend to yawn more frequently. Apparently it assists in "catching up" on oxygen in the brain.

I am asthmatic and I do yawn several times per day, tired or not.

I have read that yawning is your higher intelligence telling you to listen to your thoughts.
Another point - Yawning can be contagious - have you noticed when one person yawns others follow

Ever think that maybe the poor dog is understimulated and bored? take it for a nice long walk and when the dog comes back inside, ut will just crash, bypassing the yawning.

I think that's a very interesting theory. Science has already uncovered that we yawn, at times, for no reason at all, and that most yawns are triggered by seeing another person yawn, or even hearing someone mention yawning, (or in this case, READING about it).


Could your theory be correct? Sure! OR...it could be that you haven't discovered the vast power you have over your reality. Thinking that people are affirming your sentiments by yawning, may actually be just you exerting your influence on the world around you. A misinterpretation.

I read another theory once....which was WAY out there, but an interesting take none the less...that yawning was a demonic form of communication. In other words, those who yawn are under demonic influence. God, I hope not, because I yawn. But it sounds like the makings of a great horror flick!
