You, for reading ironic, pseudo-intellectual dictionary entries on the word "hipster".
"These dictionary entries on hipsters are so comical! I'm going to email this link to 800 of my closest acquaintances, head to Value Village, grab a chai and then play kickball in a headband and short-shorts."

A hipster is someone who is generally looked upon from an outside perspective as "Indie", but what often makes hipsters distasteful is that they pride themselves on being indie and also define themselves as such. However, they will never admit this.*

*Consider this an addition to the other, more detailed definitions.
Person #1: Man, you are suck a damn hipster.

Person #2: No I'm not, I just only wear clothes that most people don't wear, only listen to bands that most people haven't heard of, and force myself to be interested in the arts because it's cool but most people don't.

Person #1: ...Wow

(n.) An individual/group marked mostly by their cynical, ironic and intellectually elitist ideals(or lack thereof), who claim to denounce corporate interests and the bourgeois lifestyle, yet contradict these sentiments by their own behavior.
hipster mentality vs. lifestyle

'The majority of people are mindless consumers shopping at the mall and dictated by their desire to buy the perfect house, clothing article, car... et al... '

At same time spends a majority of money earned being a dishwasher/bartender/cook at American Apparel/Urban Outfitters/Goodwill, cigarettes, beer, show tickets, and overinflated rent in the part of town that isn't exactly 'safe' but gentrified enough to not worry about being shot in the day.

a wannabe indie. a hipster is the asshole version of an indie person who cares about fashion and looking "cool".
1: "hey isn't sally indie?"
2: "no, she wishes. she's a stuck up bitch who thinks she's better than everyone else because she likes fashion and photography. im sorry to say, but she's just another hipster."
1: "isn't that similar to an indie person?"
2: "yes, but indie people don't care what they look like to other people, that's why they are independent."

A person, usually in their early to mid twenties, who has what they think is good taste.
They read literature about drug use and depression, listen to music that nobody has heard of and think of themselves as beat poets.
They wear their jeans too tight and carry around moleskine journals. They write (usually shitty) poetry or engage in some kind of (failing) art form. They pretend to value intellect more than most things, but often are extremely stupid.
They complain about society. They like everything that is slightly subversive, like dressing in drag, smoking pot, or grafitti. Anything that requires a real risk, however, is not worth doing. They pretend to care about the environment, but litter. They smoke a lot. They curse a lot. They say they'd like to drop out of college and become a hermit in the mountains, but never do.
They pretend to be alienated, but actually fit in so well it's disgusting.
HIPSTER: What do you think of my new pumas?
NONHIPSTER: I don't care about your pumas.
HIPSTER: That fucking post modern bullshit is exactly what's caused the fucking degradation of the fucking environment. How can you not care, man?
NONHIPSTER: I thought we were talking about shoes!
HIPSTER: If you can't see the fucking connection, I don't see why you're worth talking too.
