A nonconformist is a person who does not conform to the trends of the average person. A true nonconformist does what they want to do and not what other people want them to do.
This is not to be confused with an anticonformist, which is a person who does the opposite of what the typical person does.
Anticonformists often call themselfs nonconformists, because they dont know any better.
At a party where the majority of people are drinking:
The conformist would drink till he/she can't drink no more.
The anticonformist would not drink a drop.
The nonconformist would drink as much as he/she feels like drinking.

Contrary to popular belief, there IS such a thing as a nonconformist. However, they ARE rare. True nonconformists conform to their OWN ideas (which, in reality is not conforming at all). Sinse they only conform to themselves, they come in all different forms, depending on what type of person they are. In short, a nonconformist is a totally honest and transparent person who says what they think does what they want.
Lisa is so open and honest! She's a true nonconformist.

A non-conformist is somebody whos stands up for what they believe despite what anyone thinks. They can buy what a conformist does not because its in and everyone has but just because they like it. They do things for themselves and not to be excepted by society despite being ridiculed for not having Air Force Ones unless they like them. There isn't a store in the mall called the non-conformist store where people go to be different. Non-conformity is all about doing what you want and not listening to others opinions.
Non-Conformist-I just bought the nicest Air-Forces not because everyone has them but because he likes them

Wanna Be Non Conformist-Ew you're such a conformist everyone has those shoes, I made my own shoes because noone has them you're such a follower.

Non-Conformist-If I like them isn't that all that matters, I mean isn't that what being a non-cofformist is all about doing what you wanna do? If I listen to you and don't buy them won't I be conforming to what your idea of a non-conformist is?

Conformist-uhh..shutup!

a person who usually does things differently from the majority of people, not for the sake of being different and special, but because they prefer to do so.
As a nonconformist, Alex doesn't care if a band is bashed my many people, he still listens to them and admits that because he likes their music.

Being in a secure state of mind in which you do not care what anybody but you thinks about you. If the whole world were like this, then there would not be as much violence. If you are scene, emo, goth, etc. then you are in no way a non-conformist. You are
conformity at its very worst. If you can honestly say to yourself that you dont care what others think of you then there is a chance you are a non-conformist. The biggest hint though is when you are recognized by people because there is not another person who looks or acts as you do.
Emo kid- *flips hair* i'm such a non-conformist *flips hair*

Anybody who doesn't give a shit about what other people think or want to pressure them to do. Getting a lip ring and having a cigarette in your hand does not make you a non conformist.

Preps can also be non conformists because they don't give a shit what other people think, they will live their life and they don't care who tries to make fun of them.

If you give that a thumb down just because you think ohh preps are conformists, well then sorry to say you are a conformist! lol

Contrary to popular belief non-conformists are NOT "emo" "goth" "punks" or "rebels" they are people who do things because they LIKE them not because they're popular. Also in a way everyone seems to conform whether to a religion, to a language or to just be human. Like for example, if all people eat a hypocritical non-conformist would be upset and not eat at all...or they would eat and completely destroy their version of non-comformity. See how complicated this topic is? Basically as I said before non-conformists are individuals who act like THEMSELVES and do not succomb to fads just because everyone else likes them.
Non-conformist: Hey dude I just got a pair of converses!

Hypocritical non-conformist: Dude you can't wear those anymore, EVERYONE has them.
