    I for one am very interested in New Age "stuff" Spirituality, mediums, Law of Attraction, etc. I sometimes go to a Spiritualist church, and my mum (INFJ) and I have endless supplies of Spiritual and Self-help books, ha. Oh, and angel cards.

    But I'm questioning my type at the moment. lol.

    Which type is the most new age?
    Is it ENFP or INFP or?
    Do you own a tie dye shirt?
    Do you have any crystals?
    I relate to none of the above. I'm a Baptist. And very wary of New Age stuff.
    I know some people who messed up with transcendental meditation and mediums, and ended up with demonic presences in their houses and even demonic possession.

    New Age is trying to reinvent old school thought and market it as something new when clearly there is nothing new about the New Age. Its a mish mash of ideas borrowed from everywhere without a uniform platform to take any of it seriously. And hence dubious people of disreputable merit milk it for what its worth. A band wagon of amusement to be taken as lighthearted entertainment, has a lot of negatives since there is wishy washy stuff that isn't pertinent to reality. While I find myself interested in many systems and ideologies, the notions and images the New Age conjures up should be changed to something that sounds less new agey.

    Is the New Age like a fine wine or a beer that's left out of the fridge too long?

    In my case I'm only into spirituality. Lately. I've began to really feel the need for spiritual..

    I despise the term "New Age" with a passion. The majority of the practices sold to the New Age crowd are older than Christianity.

    I do, in a spiritual sense, practice some things considered New Age. I practice Kundalini yoga and meditation from time to time... focusing on chakra roots and so on. I fast and I'm a vegetarian. I focus far more on Eastern spiritual philosophy than western. No I don't perform crystal healing or listen to trance music. :P

    Negative to all of the above. I think pretty much everything listed is ridiculous. The only thing I would not scoff at on that list would be 'meditation', but only because its aim is to bring about more self-awareness, which could lead to growth as an individual, and I'm all about that. I myself don't meditate, though - in the sense that is meant by the word. As for 'spiritual', I do not think it is a great descriptor of myself, at least as the word is typically used, since I do not practice or hold to any specific beliefs/rituals, although ethically I think I have solid beliefs and I also have quite an affinity, love, appreciation, and care for the natural world/ecology, and the universe at large.

    I suppose the New Age movement would have a good % consisting of NF's, but honestly I think the other half could easily be xSFP's.

    I'm not a big follower of the new age stuff anymore, but I don't think someone can be royally opposed to it, or rule it all off as "wishy washy" nonsense because it holds a lot of Truth. But then again, a lot of it fluffy gibberish.
    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?
