a hipster is someone who is considered SUPER COOL by all sets of eyes. and they must have a PET DRAGON. being the owner (and friend) of two dogs would be a plus.
and it is a myth that they are also friends with super cool friends!
Dang, i wanna be like that hipster!

a lot of people define a hipster as someone who falls into a category, like shopping at Urban Outfitters and listening to indie - when really, the true meaning of hipster is to differ from the norm. You don't have to wear a cardigan over corduroys to be a hipster, you just have to be yourself, and not worry about where society is going with music and fashion, and just go where you feel like going.
damn, what a hipster!

Where's your hipster gone?

Not all hipsters are jerks. Not all hipsters are hypocrites or bad people.
Some generally are nice, social, and want to get to know you.
The ideal hipster is intelligent and craves knowledge.
He looks passed steotypes and conformity and styles himself in his own way of liking. The ideal hipster is equally willing or unwilling to hang out with new people. As with anyone else once you get to know a person.

They all have different points of view and are passionate to defend it and/or prevent anyone else from degrading or demoralizing it.
They all may have diverse passions and hobbies and likings.
They may be bold and determined and proud, although these adjectives may apply to anyone.
But above all, a hipster will follow is own heart and understanding.

Also: I don't know why there is a term for this type of person but all I know is that "hipsters" don't all do it to be cool or for your "approval", but to express and appreciate themselves for who they are. They should look passed your body image and do the same for you.
We like to make you turn heads. ;)

You: Dude, what a f***king hipster. Look at her. She thinks she's all that. Wait, a minute. I should check up TheMusicZealot's definition first. Maybe I can better understand her individuality and try to appreciate and be inspired by her diversity of interests.

An adjective. Describes a person who rejects mainstream altogether. Usually extraordinarily smart genius's. Constantly checks stocks and always talks about the advanced placement courses he/she is taking. Likes math and science. Usually go by the name of Phoenix if a guy. Deeply interested in politics, they spend their days arguing their beliefs to anyone who's interested. Also like to spend hours on end playing video games in a dark room, including the new hit game "Skyrim", a magical game with dragons. Hipsters tend to be skaters as well, dressing and acting like dumb kids but really being very smart and nerdy on the inside. Don't be fooled when you see one, they aren't dumb at all.
Person 1: "Dude, Phoenix is so smart. He's in calculus, did you know? I would've never guessed, he acts so stupid."
Person 2: "He's a hipster; of course he looks stupid on the outside."
