People who think they are better than everyone else.

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.

Elitism is a state of mind and not necessarily tied to family lineage or inherited wealth. Someone who the average person loves to hate on because they know deep down they don't have what it takes to achieve the level of excellence demanded by elitists.
