Stop being ignorant. There is no DEFINITION of an indie
kid. There are no specific guidelines, requirements, or strict definitive characteristics. Indie
is a culture, a state of mind, and a never-ending quest for good
is an appreciation of beauty, which
is defined by one's own standards. The indie
kid's concept of beauty usually
does not involve mainstream music because popular music is often superficial, employing very basic chords and melodies, and the lyrics are rarely deep or symbolic. Indie
people sense this lack
of artistic depth
in popular culture, thus seeking depth
in alternate, more creative styles of clothing and music.
Although this observation
does not apply to all indie
kids, there seems to be a slight trend in the intellectual capacity of those involved in Indie
culture. Many indie
kids enjoy critical and analytical thinking, abstract ideas, and learning new things, often discussing
"nerdy" topics among themselves. This
because intellect, creative ability and depth
linked, likely due to how one's brain
has developed based on genetics and exposure to society, and which
areas of the brain
are innately most active.
Only "indie kid" stereotype: indie kids hang with other indie kids.
