Of course, these days everyone is a nonconformist together: not listening to classic rock together, not wearing regular clothes together, and not loving your perfectly fine life together.
Yet, there shines a glimmer of hope, for there are a few true nonconformists out there, the ones who do what they want, whether or not someone else likes it. Unfortunately, these people are usually seen as nerds, and are quickly dismissed. Of course, the nonconformist doesn't care at all.
True Noncanformist: I'm gonna go spraypaint a tomato on my ass, and I don't care what you think.
It is important to note that those who listen to emo music and wear stereotypically emo clothes, for example, are not non-conformists; they are just brainless prats. They don't actually want to listen to the music that they do, they simply do it in order to fit into a social group (conforming).
kid 2:that or he likes Naruto, who knows?
nonconformist are tipically smarter than your average joe.
everyone thinks non-conformists are just conforming to being a non-conformist.
but we don't care... because that's just your conformed thinking speaking.
non-conformist: i like wearing black nail polish, but i also dance around in my underwear singing toxic by britney spears. half of my clothes are "emo", but the other half are hot pink. i do whatever i want and i don't care.
wannabe non-conformist: uhmm you're such a poser and a wannabe.
non-conformist: no, it's your conformed thinking that has drawn that conclusion.
wannabe non-conformist: i was jay kay i actually like all that stuff too.

usually, i don't shop at hollister, but if i see a shirt that i like i'll buy it, because being a non-conformist doesn't mean you aren't allowed to shop at typically preppy stores.
Non-Conformists do not need validation from others and have a strong inner guide.
Choices may be made which mirror the common consensus, but the internal reasoning will be based on analysis rather than following.
Which is why non-conformists really cannot be identified or labeled.
And why those who would call themselves non-conformist are actually conforming to the definition.
Which negates their claims.
The Non-Conformist would be trying on different pairs of shoes and if the Jordans have the comfort, price, and feel they like they will purchase them,
More than likely the Non-Conformist will end up purchasing them weeks or months after the release.
