I've been to a intellectual giftedness counselor. She told me about those indigo children. However, I was shocked when I read something about indigo children killing people in the book she gave me. That's when I started wanting to be a normal person, not an intelligent person. People were often envious of my skills and called me a bad person. Out of defiance, I then called myself intellectually gifted. People who depress others because they are envious are not very enjoyable but strange New Age theories are just as unpleasant.
There's nothing wrong with thinking you're special. There is something wrong with thinking you're superior to others.
Right smack on that.
Seriously though, this isn't the first time a number of people believed in a wild story to make themselves feel superior to others. And sadly, these people are the very ones who have inferiority complexes inside.
