(This article is for those who have known already what is Indigo Children深藍孩童 and they may suspect that they are among one of those Adult Indigo.  So sorry, I would not translate this piece into Chinese as I think not many people are interested in, and related themselves into, this topic^^ If you really want to know more about it, you may search  in Wikipedia or in the net.  To save time and space, I won’t explain in details here.)

As Indigo Children and Crystal Children are hot topics in this age, I have just found another similar kind of people called Adult Indigo, a whole generation that has been running around feeling somewhat lost.  Listed below are some of the qualities and challenges that the “First Wave" Indigos experienced.

If you resonate to the majority of these characteristics you may be an ADULT INDIGO.  (I have just found that I am!)  If you are an adult indigo, please introduce yourself and I am happy to know you!
