I was having a discussion today with some people about contagious yawns. I didn’t know that yawns were contagious until high school when I read about it in a book. I’ve never caught a yawn from someone, and the whole concept is rather mindboggling. I’ve always wondered – do other Autistic people (or others) have the same reaction that I do? Do you personally “catch” yawns? When did you first learn about the concept of contagious yawns?
p.s. sorry for the short post, more will come soon. I’ve had a really bad week health-wise (This evening went something like “oh yay, I’m feeling better! Oh crap, I have a 101 degree fever. Why body, why?”), but things are starting to get a little better (hopefully), so expect a substantial post sometime soonish, once I’ve caught up on everything I haven’t been able to do this past week. But I’m REALLY curious about this whole yawn thing… please discuss in the comments. 🙂
