Characteristics of Indigo Children
1. Comes into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often acts like it).
2. Has a feeling of "deserving to be here," and are surprised when others don't share that.
3. Has an obvious sense of self. They often tell parents "who they are."
4. Has difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice) such as telling a child to do a certain task he does not want to do and when asked why, is told :
"Just do it!"
5. Simply will not do certain things they are told to do; for example- waiting in line is difficult for them.
6. Gets frustrated with systems that are ritual-oriented that require little creativity.
7. Often sees better ways of doing things both at home and at school, which makes them seem like "system busters"- nonconforming to any system.
8. Seems antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often let no other human understand them. School is extremely difficult for them socially.
9. Will not respond to "guilt" discipline- (Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did!").
10. Is not shy in letting you know what they need.
11. Gets bored rather easily with assigned tasks. Seen as a daydreamer.
12. Is particularly creative.
13. Displays intuition.
14. Shows strong empathy to others.
15. Develops abstract thinking very early.
16. Identified or suspected as having ADD/ADHD.
17. Has very old, deep, wise-looking eyes.
