A majority are familiar with indigo as the deep and rich color that borders blue and violet on the visible spectrum. It is a personality type that has been existent since the 1970s. We call them indigo adults. They have only gained popularity in the recent past.
Now that I have aroused your curiosity, let’s find out who Indigo adults are.
Who are Indigo Adults?
These grown-ups are described as creative, quick-witted, and restless. Growing up as children, they feel out of place and have a hard time coming to terms with why their family doesn’t understand them. Legend has it that they have ancient souls, which explains their difficulty in adjusting to modern society.

Follow this well-manicured path and find out for yourself.
They are bright minds
In the general order of things, you can see their brilliance shine through even though that is not always the case when they are in school. It is ever easy for them to learn and understand things.
They are originative
When charged with a task, indigo adults don’t follow the norm but find creative solutions around it. Their originality of thought is easily noticeable.
They are inquisitive
They question everything they are asked to do. In a way, it makes them collide with most authorities putting them in trouble sometimes. Subconsciously they believe the status quo is susceptible to change.
Like watching paint dry, they are bored of monotonous and repetitive tasks
Law and order sap out their energy since they tend to thrive in the randomness of things. It becomes mind-numbing for them when there is no variety.
Early in life, they may have exhibited signs of depression
This can grow to the extent that they harbor suicidal thoughts. Indigo adults see the world as a cruel place that is only after money or power, and they don’t know where they fit in the grand scheme of things. Building relationships becomes a challenge because they are scared people will think of them as creepy.
They are at the extreme ends of the emotional scale. Either they are too sensitive or show no feelings at all. Maintaining a balance becomes a tall order.
They know the aroma of honesty
On a lighter note, indigo adults can tell when someone is bending the truth.
Have psychic experiences
They surprise everyone with their enviable interest in spiritual things from an early age. It is not unusual for them to have strange spiritual experiences such as encounters with angels or ghosts. In a way, this is why they are reactive to electricity such as lights flickering in their presence.
Have a sincere desire to make the world a better place
There is that strong urge to leave a positive mark in the world. Money and power don’t mean much to them other than the impact they leave. Whenever it proves difficult, indigo adults always see themselves as failures because the world is not receptive to their well-meaning efforts. This is why some become suicidal.
A dislike for administration or government authorities
There is a feeling of discontent. Indigo adults feel there is a better way of doing things. Whenever there is injustice or unfairness, they always speak out. In as much as they mean well, people often misunderstand and label them combative or troublemakers.
They can’t stand the misfortunes of others
Since they are too emotional, it becomes a struggle handling the pain. People may think they don’t care, but they are just avoiding feeling the suffering that others are experiencing. It explains why they often avoid watching sad news.
Have close bonds with animals
They are of the belief that animals aren’t second class inhabitants of the earth. Just like humans, they deserve a seat on the high table. Animal behavior fascinates them, and it is not rare to find them lost in animal books or documentaries.
