Am I Chareidi?

The anonymous Avodah/Areivim member who posted here is correct. Most Chareidim would not consider me Chareidi. But I suspect that most Yeshivishe people would consider me Yeshivish (which is the term I prefer). Remember, a label is not a definition – it is an identifier. Someone could be correctly identified as Chassidish and still enjoy peeking at Nechama Leibowitz's Seforim every Shabbos, and someone could be correctly identified as Religious Zionist and live in Schenectady.

Is charedism a state of mind or a state of being?

you use a correct word when you say a chassidish guy would 'peek' at a nechama leibowitz sefer but i do not think he will take it out in the middle of shul to read or quote her in a public forum. many a jew has become a personna non grata for much less.
