Being a hipster is fundamentally based on trying to be “untrendy” and thinking you have your own style. When many “untrendy” and “totally unique,” city-dwelling, men and women, who are mostly college students or college graduates, come together and unintentionally form a subculture, you end up with what has come to be known as “the hipster scene.” Hipsters are the “anti-trend” trend followers par excellence. All hipsters think that they come from diverse backgrounds, with diverse tastes in music, fashion, art, etc. They try to be as obscure as they can, so they can seem as intellectual and as unique as possible. But, because none of them really are intelligent or unique, they fail to come off as either, and instead, many of their behaviors end up rubbing off on one another.

In order to be a hipster you CANNOT call yourself a hipster. A person who thinks of him or herself, and identifies as, a hipster is automatically NOT a hipster. This is because you must believe that you are untrendy and different in order to be a real hipster, and by labeling yourself a “hipster” you are clearly declaring that you belong to a subculture, and hence, that you are a trendy little bastard. Thus, being a hipster is fundamentally based on denial and self-negation. That's why the common and seemingly binding behaviors we see among hipsters change every so often. For example, hipsters used to be known to buy all their cloths at thrift stores. But, because hipsters are "anti-trends," this activity is slowly dying amongst them. They have become aware of the popularity of the practice and hence, of its trendiness. Hipster culture is fluid and ever-changing because it is based on maintaining the appearance of diversity and difference. Therefore, hipsters can never be defined by the cloths they wear, the music they listen to, the places they go, or the topics they discuss. Here are the necessary conditions for being a hipster: (a) you must think that you are extremely different from everyone else, (b) you must think that you are in the intellectual elite and that you have a unique perspective on things, (c) you must try to be as ironic as possible, and act and think like you have the most obscure and elite taste in music, art, literature, and fashion, (d) you must go to parties with people who answer criterions a, b, and c (if you don’t surround yourself with other “different” and “unique” people, who are you going to be an "untrendy" hipster with?), and most importantly (e) You must never think of yourself or identity as - a hipster!!

Note that this is where things become a bit more complicated. If the hipster becomes aware of the paradox of being a hipster (self-negating, “anti-trend” trend), then they can start identifying themselves as hipsters and by doing so they would be ironic and different in comparison to everyone else in the hipster scene, who have yet to discover their self-negating natures! This will cause an infinite regression within the hipster, because you cannot identify yourself as a hipster in order to be a hipster, but by calling yourself a hipster and being aware of the paradox, you are being a complete hipster, but you cannot be a hipster if you identify as one...and so forth...into eternity.
David: I took a karate class in college, I wear designer cloths, I ironically work at a dry cleaners store, I got a 1600 on my SAT, and I like Merzbow, Joy Division, and Slayer
Tom: You’re a hipster
David: No I’m not!

“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).

You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.
Person 1: Lol, that guy is such a hipster! Let's make fun of him and make ourselves look cool! Aren't I so funny guys!!

Person 1:...Guys?

Person 2: Your ignorance is sickening. Just leave.

People who complain about hipsters.
A true hipster would love hipsters, cause everyone else apparently hates them.

People, usually between the ages of 15 and 20 who hang out at Starbucks and/or Barnes and Noble and drink massive amounts of coffee and read books, or go on their laptops for hours on end. These people claim to have no money and so they purchase all of their clothing at Salvation Army or Goodwill, yet show off their Apple computer or brand new iPhone. They are also huge fans of cigarettes, and look down on people who drink alcohol, even though they secretly go out and drink and smoke weed every weekend with their fellow hipsters. They love the outdoors and drink "healthy" things like Arizona Green Tea by the gallon. Oh, and most of them usually wear very tight pants and have short, butchy haircuts, regardless of their gender.
Have you seen Leslie around lately?

Yeah, I think she's turned into a hipster, I saw her at Starbucks the other day...

That's too bad...

A person who makes being lazy trendy. A hipster gets an easy job and a shaggy looking haircut by rolling out of bed and picking out his clothes from the thrift shop in the dark. Instead of reading the news, a hipster can babble on incessantly about philosophy and art, going from one subject to another sounding seemingly intelligent and full of knowledge, but really being too lazy to coordinate his thoughts.
Greta (to a hipster in a Starbucks)- Wow, I like your American style. I heard that this crazy clothing and modern art book that you're reading are trendy now in American Starbucks.
Dax- I don't know what you're talking about. I just grabbed these clothes upon waking so they are my own look, and this book I foound in a trash dump wandering around today and this coffee shop I just wandered into, it just happens to be a Starbucks.

A person who hasn't been accepted as an adult by anyone with half a brain. These people are the product of our fuck-up, filth-ridden modern day world. In most cases they come from a dysfunctional up-bringing or just simply have no clue on how to be themselves. They are usually quite out of touch with reality.

You can spot these clowns a mile away. The guys, usually wearing what would appear to be a pair of girls jeans, you just want to plow your fist into their scrawny, perverted-facial-hair covered face. The girls(some being very attractive) usually hide their beauty under a hodge-podge, haggard mess of asinine, mix-matched clothing.
Anyone reading this who doesn't fit these descriptions, I know you know EXACTLY what and who I'm talking about.

Mostly teens and 20s, but sadly, many people are like this in their 30s. Anyone like this in their 40s, see definition: PATHETIC.
A Hipster is a person who is trying hard to be something or someone, or a person who is trying hard to not be anything or anyone at all, and has no idea how to just be as they are.
