Yes, I'd say NFs are attracted to it, but I'd also say that since it's become a trend, I doubt they're the largest group of practitioners these days.

    Yes, I own crystals and I do use them. They're one of the many tools I use in my spiritual path. I know of the chakras but haven't worked with this elaborately yet, no channeling, meditation yes, ufo's hell no, mysteries ?, ghosts no unless you count my ancestors or nature spirits, ESP no, astrology basic knowledge, no practice, tarot yes, palmistry no but on my list. Other things...yes, but I think it's best to not go into detail
    Translation: Im a new ager in denial.

    I don't adhere to New Age beliefs(being a devout Catholic), but I do admit to a certain interest and curiousity about it - as well as the paranormal and occult in general. I have to admit that the real hard-core hippie types do piss me off.

    The closest thing I have to anything New Age (oops, actually I do own a tie-dye shirt) is a tarot card - "The Lovers" - that my creepy stalker mailed me last month.

    I guess I'm interested in learning about metaphysics, but I'm interested in learning about most things.

    Sit still and be quiet for a long time, and it supposedly empties your head.

    I can't get past the sitting still part.

    You seem to be very afraid of this. Freaked out, so to say.
    Why do you care so much about what people think of you?

    Which type is the most new age?
    Is it ENFP or INFP or?
    Maybe...the stereotypical NF anyway. I could see other types liking this stuff.

    Personally, I am religious & Christian, but not exactly "traditional". I suppose I have some "unusual" beliefs. I don't like to discuss it online though.

    I don't practice anything to do with magic and am not into "mystical" stuff. I believe in spirituality though, and I love symbolism.

    I really, really dislike most self-help books & avoid that section at the bookstore . I enjoy psychology, but I find a lot of self-help stuff to be too fluffy and not founded on anything very "legitimate". Cognitive behavioral therapy is something I can get on board with, when it's not packaged as some goofy self-help system. I admit that advice from those books often clash with my personal values and I just end up perturbed.

    Do you own a tie dye shirt?
    I own a maxi dress that has a subtle tye dye print . It's not that hippy looking though. I tend to prefer an elegant bohemian look when I go that route. Hippies are too...dirty! Probably from all that tree-hugging

    I admit some of my ideals sound disturbingly "happy hippy" when I say them outloud.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Then this will really piss you off.

    People judge and shy away.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Do you have any crystals?
    As a percentage of their type, I would guess INFJs would top the list in being interested in these types of things.
