44.
1. One who suffers from a mental illness wherein he/she is frequently compelled to offer destructive criticism to/of others, as a consequence of one or more personal insecurities.

(Note: Contrary to popular belief, the insecurity prompting a type 1 hater is not necessarily 'jealousy', as the other often has nothing that the hater covets. Instead, the hater is prompted by conscious or unconscious, real or imagined perception of some deficiency within the self and/or life. The cause is mental imperfection of the subject/hater, little to do with the object/hated.)

2. One who assesses another with the conscious intent of degradation, such that the assessment is unfair, inaccurate and/or uncalled for.

(Note: Unlike the type 1 hater above, the type 2 hater is aware that their judgments are negatively skewed. Such a hater will make a conscious decision to be untruthful in order to degrade another. The motivation behind instances of a type 2 hater varies on a case by case basis. Note also that this is not a compulsive state of being like the type 1 hater, so someone may be a type 2 hater only in a given circumstance.)

3. One who takes pleasure in the act of criticizing another. Synonyms: a**hole, d**k, b***h

(Note: The nature of and reason for the criticism -- e.g. accurate, requested, constructive, etc. -- is irrelevant for the type 3 hater. The distinguishing factor is that the mere act of other-directed criticism suffices for positive valence (e.g. enjoyment).)
Hater: Oh, is that your new boo? *scowl*
Other: Yea, I love her.
Hater: She's aight but she can't dress. I could never date a girl who would walk out the house lookin like that. That's why I don't mess with any of these broads around here.
Other: Fuckin hater.

1.
A person that simply cannot be happy for another person's success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.

Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock somelse down a notch.
Susan: You know, Kevin from accounting is doing very well. He just bought a house in a very nice part of town.

Jane (hater): If he is doing so well why does he drive that '89 Taurus?

4.
A term used by others, usually being suburban "gangsters", whose lives are absolutely and undeniably defined by what others think. These people "rumble" often and think of themselves as original and/or indestructable. People that use the term "haters" are the lowest stage of the evolutionary scale. They bleed the fastest and have thought processes similar to that of a mentally underdeveloped cat.
"Why you hatin' on me?"

5.
A person that develops a strong dislike for another, solely basing their own opinion on personal judgment rather than objective merit. The formation of a hater's contempt commonly arises from jealously and/or resentment. Individuals that make fun of, or "hate," others for justified reasons cannot be legitimately classified as "haters;" although many faggots attempt to rationalize their own situations by doing so. Additionally, the word "hater" is frequently overused, mainly by members of the rap and hip-hop communities.
John is a hater of the 'Jersey Shore' MTV cast because they have more money than him, not because they are incredibly fucking annoying.
