Are empathic people more likely to catch yawns?

egle saviciute  asked the Naked Scientists:

Hey! I was just listening to one of the older q&a podcasts where you attempted to explain why yawning is so contagious. Even listening to you talk about yawning made me do it!

Does that mean I'm super-empathetic?

Loving the show,

Ella

What do you think?

I'd say yes, but that's a gut feeling (so definitely a solid evidence-based answer!). Anyone have any experience or references on this?
