    In my experience, silence generally means that the answer is not what the asker wants to hear. Occasionally it just means that someone doesn't want to hear the asker speak, or deems their question not worth answering, and has picked a very rude and demeaning way of showing it. So...as the answer to a question yes, silence that is not accompanied by any particular body language does often seem to be a bad sign.

    In the legal sense, silence is usually a form of acceptance. So if one disagrees then it is best to speak up civily.

    when i'm silent it really doesn't mean NO. it means i have lots to say but in order not to cause trouble oh well. For some reason i'm told to keep quiet while In some cases i just either do not feel like saying anything or i dont have anything to say. it could mean different things. Not just NO!

    God says in the Bible, "A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. (Pro 29:11)

    I agree with wychic, I am usually silent if I know the statement I have to make will not be helpful or is not what the person wants to hear and you know they are only looking for agreement.
