a person who does not believe in today's pop culture because it is too "mainstream". However, a good hipster would not admit to being a hipster because hipsterism itself would be considered too mainstream..
person: youre such a hipster
hipster: how dare you compare me to them U: *rages*

A pretentious and self-absorbed hypocrite who has abandoned their sense of identity to fit an exaggerated trend or theme. In order to cope with their confusing psychological denial and low self esteem, these sad individuals project their lack of definition and depth at the world thereby inflating their own perceptions of uniqueness. They can be found simultaneously condemning the cultural "mainstream" on superficial topics such as style or fashion, while engaging in hyperbolic applications of those same superficial aspects.

While some of these individuals may genuinely struggle to become more cultured, most do not have a genuine interest (or aptitude) and are simply trying to fit into a crowd that wants to reject fitting in to the "mainstream". Conversely, a socially well adjusted individual who truly appreciates and participates in art, for example, may have no inclinations towards the hipster subculture. There is somewhat of a one-way, pretend inclusion that the hipster conceives of for him or herself that is a form of mild delusion.

Hipsters present a curious irony by considering themselves superior, more cultured and more individualistic, while rejecting the actual depth, perspective and variation in people around them that is at the core of individuality.
Guy 1 : Why was that guy rude for no reason?
Guy 2 : He's a hipster.
Guy 1 : Ahh - I guess that's why hes dressed to solicit attention and we're not at a costume party.
Guy 2 : Hipsters are douchebags.
Guy 1 : Yeah, I've heard that before.

The new thing you DO NOT want to be. Hipsters tend to purposefully look for the things that no one else likes just to say that they like it. To them, if the music, art etc. are in style or cool to others, it is uncool. Hipsters usually are the people who think they are original when there parents probably did the same thing when they were kids. Indies and hipsters are VERY different.

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 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.

A typical 20-30 year old douche bag that believes they're better than everyone else because of their misguided and unrealistic ideals. They believe in nonconformity, listen to terrible indie music, wear clothes from the Salvation Army, are usually vegetarian and do tons of recreational drugs. Their extremely liberal stance in politics makes them incapable of accepting reality for what it is, and they’ll actually defend drug abuse, claiming it’s healthy. Hipsters specialize in mooching off society, believing in utilitarianism and socialism, and that everyone should be equal and that they have a right to have everything handed to them. It is because of this that most of them are jobless, having no incentive to work for or earn anything that isn't free (See: Occupy Wall Street).

You can recognize a hipster for their odd piercings, odd colored hair, tight jeans, donated clothing and pothead-like voice. They can usually be found at raves or indie rock concerts, and occasionally at house parties rolling up their own cigarettes and / or holding a Pabst Blue Ribbon. You may also recognize their incredible ability to reject reality and their intense effort to do absolutely nothing. This means staying up til odd hours of the morning, and sleeping all day, only to wake up, smoke a cigarette, then smoke 2 other drugs just in time for another cigarette. They usually proceed to ask to borrow some money, being they just spent it all on smoking, instead of necessities like food.
Normal Human: Hey Storm, what'd you end up doing last night? I went out to a house party and had a fuckin blast haha.

Hipster (Storm): uhhhh, oh yeah haha. I went out to a foam party and dropped 90 bucks on shrooms man. It was unreal man heheh. I was trippin balls and danced my ass off for hours then hooked up with this chick with blue hair and a shaved head.

Normal Human: Oh. Sounds... Sounds fun man..

------------------------------------------------------------

Normal Human: Say, that cough sounds pretty nasty. You aren't sick are you?

Hipster: Nahhhh man, i don't know, it just came outta no where man. I've had it for a while now.

Normal Human: It couldn't be from stupid amount of smokin--
