    Everyone should start using that word.
    So it can get inducted into the dictionary and common use.

    Vibacious: adj.
    a. Full of vibes, energetic philosophy of someone/something.

    Add on feel free, what are you thinking?

    I like your spunk, but it doesn't really work that way. New words virtually always catch on by themselves, with no one saying, "Hey guys, I came up with this awesome new word, and I want the whole world to use it!" And the words that do catch on are usually very useful words. I don't mean to knock your creativity, but I've never thought to myself, "If only I could say someone was full of vibes in just one word..."

    But maybe we can make a deal. One of my math teachers at college wanted everyone to start using the word "oppositize," which means to change the sign of a number from positive to negative, or vice versa. She had the same goal as you do. If you can convince some math teachers to use the word themselves, then I'll use "vibacious."

    Ok, well I get what your saying. It seems very meek and less useful but I think if you walk into a party and the mood is "vibacious" or you go on a date with someone and say "why, you have such a vibacious personality"(corny examples)... It's a good way to describe something that could otherwise be dull, bland, kept in, boring, etc.

    but I will tell my math teacher on tuesday and ask what he thinks.
    meanwhile I'll still be preaching my new word.

    It sounds too similar to "vivacious," and the meaning is just about the same: lively, animated, gay (in the original sense of the word).

    Funny thing, but "vibe" isn't a word either. That's a place to start. Be warned, however that there is word that's accomplished and in regular use. Maybe you've heard it. It's: "Vibrate".
    Naturally, there is an adjective attached to this root word.

    In a sentence it could be used like this.

    "That battery powered toy between your legs is quite vibratory"

    I know my boyfriends mother told me the same thing.
    I realize that but I still feel like "vibacious" has a spot in the english dictionary for it not only describes but gives a function and an intuitive value.

    vivacious: lively
    vibacious: filled with energy and emotion.
    Yeah, you both are right. I still like the word.

    Hm, well then vibacious would preciously be "full of vibes" because if vibratory means basically in every direction, a room could be full of vibes. many energies from different people or a single person.
