2. Somebody who believes that society should be ruled by an elite class.
Elitists exercise often and eat healthily to keep their bodies fit and desirable-looking. In addition, elitists are too smart to do drugs,
Elitists have stimulating conversations that keep their minds fresh and their lives active.
Elitists are proud of being elitists but are secretive at the same time; for instance, the elitist code used by elitists to facilitate their advanced conversations is a well known phenomenon for those who associate with elitists; however, only elitists will ever know this code.
However, this is also a word sometimes used in politics to marginalize a person who actually knows what they are talking about, uses scientific evidence, or who knows how to lead. Rather than elect someone who is the most qualified to run a country, people would rather vote for the person they see drinking a beer on the news, and as a result countries end up with Presidents like George W. Bush.
Idiot: But is that candidate someone I could have a beer with? I want a candidate who understands the needs of the people.
Person: But shouldn't the people have a leader who cares about real issues and bases their decisions off evidence?
Idiot: Sounds like an elitist to me.
In terms of social groups centered are music.
Most Metalheads, Classic Rock-heads Indie fans, and Hipsters are elitists.
Metalheads tend to think that taste in music is all that matters in the quality of a person. Also they think Metal is the ultimate music. So they think that people who listen to Metal are superior to those who do not.
Classic Rock-heads are the same way as Metalheads. They are a little more open minded but still elitists.
Indie fans think that unknown music is superior. They are not as strong about their musical taste as metalheads, but they still believe they are better than those who listen to bands everyone knows.
Hipsters tend to think those who don't listen to whats in are strange and different and therefore insuperior to them.
In terms of social groups not centered around music.
Jocks, and Preps are elitists.
Most Jocks believe anyone who sucks at sports and gets good grades are insuperior to them.
Some preps believe anyone who doesn't have a sense of fashion or isn't like them or everyone else is insuperior.
Sue sure knows a lot of big words, yet she never has anything of substance and just comes off like an elitist.
Boy, Joe sure is a model specimen of what a comic book character should look like - I bet he eats a lot of protein and looks at himself in the mirror often - on top of that, I'm sure that if he was attacked by a tiger, he would sure be a tasty meal with all that flesh.
