    Correct. "Indigo children" are just a new age bullshit recycling of an idea that's been around for a long time, and has been much more clearly and reasonably explored and explained by others.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Nick Colangelo, a University of Iowa professor specializing in the education of gifted children, stated that the first indigo book should not have been published, and that "...[t]he indigo children movement is not about children, and it is not about the color indigo. It is about adults who style themselves as experts and who are making money on books, presentations and videos."

    I surely believe that there are people who have the traits that are now labeled as traits of an indigo child, and it is probably becoming more common for people in recent generations to have these traits. For now, I don't believe any of the further speculations, especially those that have than new age spirituality flavor to them.

    Here are these attributes of an an indigo child that I have found, along with how much I relate to them

    2=Mostly 1=Somewhat 0=Not Really

    They come into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often act like it) - 1

    They have a feeling of "deserving to be here," and are surprised when others don't share that. - 2

    Self-worth is not a big issue. They often tell the parents "who they are." - 2

    They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice). - 2

    They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them. - 2

    They get frustrated with systems that are ritually oriented and don't require creative thought. - 1

    They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like "system busters" (nonconforming to any system). - 2

    They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward, feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially. - 2

    They will not respond to "guilt" discipline ("Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did"). - 2

    They are not shy in letting you know what they need. - 2

    *Here are the quiz results for the auras too, though it is a misconception that the concept of indigo children is based off of auras:

    Red - 2
    Orange - 2
    Magenta - 4
    Yellow - 0
    Logical Tan - 3
    Environmental Tan - 1
    Sensitive Tan - 0
    Abstract Tan - 3
    Green - 5
    Blue - 0
    Violet - 6
    Lavender - 6
    Crystal - 1
    Indigo - 5
    Red Overlay - 0

    Green, Indigo, Violet, Abstract Tan - 1

    Yellow description:
    Yellows are the most fun-loving, free-spirited, energetic, and childlike personalities in the aura spectrum. Yellows are wonderful, sensitive, optimistic beings, whose life purpose is to bring joy to people, to have fun, and to help heal the planet.

    Yellows can either be very shy and sensitive, or they can be the life of the party. These playful characters have a great sense of humor. They love to laugh and to make others laugh. Yellows believe life is to be enjoyed. They like to live life freely and spontaneously. With a perpetual smile on their face, they remind people to not take themselves or their problems too seriously.

    Yellows would prefer not to work at all, unless their work was fun, playful, or creative. They love nature, and often have concerns for the survival of wildlife and the environment. Dogs are very drawn to Yellows and often become their best friends.

    apparently...i'm violet- 10
    with blue, lavender, yellow and indigo at 7

    whatever that means.

    edit...oh it says this about violet.

    Violets are the inspirational visionaries, leaders and teachers who are here to help save the planet. Most Violets feel drawn to educate the masses, to inspire higher ideals, to improve the quality of life on the planet, or to help save people, animals and the environment.

    All Violets have an inner sense that they are here to do something important, that their destiny is greater than that of the average person. Most Violets have felt this way since childhood. As children, many Violets imagined becoming famous, or traveling the planet, possibly joining humanitarian causes such the Peace Corp. Many of these charismatic personalities take on roles as leaders and teachers, while other Violets prefer to reach people through music, film or other art form.

    Because this era is currently the "Violet Age," any Violets who are not accomplishing what they came here to do are experiencing an inner “push” — even an inner “earthquake.” Inner forces seem to be shaking them up and pushing them to move into action, to fulfill their life purpose. Violets know they are here to do something significant. However, they aren't always sure what that something is or how to accomplish it.

    Many Violets were taught as children that their dreams and aspirations were unrealistic, so they have lost touch with their original visions. It's important for Violets to reconnect with their life purpose and vision, and to take action. Otherwise they will always feel unfulfilled. They will always sense something is missing from their lives. Violets need to learn to slow down long enough to listen to their inner voice and to connect with their higher vision.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
