Somebody tryin' to be me! I'm an independent thinker but I don't throw my genius around like I'm a snob. A hipster is somebody who thinks he or she is all that but he or she isn't. Someone who makes us gifted people look bad.
"Dang, girl did you see that hipster chick with that dirty old time 'Cheer Detergent' t-shirt ? <<smart girl yells out the bus window>> GET A CLUE WE DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE TRYIN' TO BE IRONIC!!!!!"

A real hipster doesn't have to necessarily take up the conventions mentioned in many of these definitions. A hipster doesn't give a damn and may have perfectly normal hair. The hallmark of a hipster is high cultural tolerance and a slight tendency towards intellectual arrogance. There's no such thing as a "cliquish" hipster: People who are like that are just as brain-dead as any other close-minded person. Usually well-informed and interesting people who have more to discuss than gossip, TV shows (many hipsters have a disdain for television), and housing prices (unless they're about to re-up their lease).
That guy thinks for himself and questions authority. Definitely appreciates the arts, literary as well as visual and musical. He's a hipster for sure.

A derogatory term used to describe free-thinkers and people that appreciate creativity. Because in most modern societies it is often looked down upon for an individual to appreciate creativity and to be able to think for themselves it has become somewhat rare to find people that do so. Many half-wits or people who abstain from thinking for themselves (the majority of people) have come up with a derogatory term (hipster) to describle all people that do such things. However, the term "hipster" fails at defining these people because it refers to a specific style of dress and a specific type of independent music (Rock) while people who appreciate creativity and think for themselves don't all have the same style of dress. They could wear anything and listen to a wide variety of independent music (not just independent rock as the stereotype suggests). One of the most obvious reasons why these people would prefer not to be labeled as "hipsters" and view the term as derogatory is that the term "hipster" implies that they are trying to conform to a specific subculture while anybody who appreciates creativity and can think for themselves would not conform to anything because doing so would not be being creative or thinking for themselves at all.
Tool - "Hey, can I ask you a quick question?"

"Hipster" - "I guess. What's up?"

Tool - "Hey, why don't you dress like everybody else and listen to bands that are on the radio?

"Hipster" - "Oh, that's because I don't have to dress the way that other people dress, and because I don't like the music on the radio.

Tool - "But, why don't you like the music on the radio? If it's on the radio, then doesn't that mean it's good?"

"Hipster" - "Well, the music that you hear on the radio is made specifically to appeal to ignorant, culturally deprived people like yourself that don't really care about the artistic and creative value of music and prefer to listen to music that sounds just like every other singer on the radio and sings about the same cheesy, shallow, unimportant, generic topics that have been used in thousands of other songs and don't really mean anything."

Tool - "Oh..."
