non-conformists do whatever they want, because they can, and they don't care. they like what's in style, what's out of style, and what will never be in style, all because they don't really care about what anyone else thinks. often confused with wannabe non-conformists, who refuse to like anything in style and are conforming to a different set of rules, as opposed to a real non-conformist who doesn't really notice that he or she is not conforming.
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.
wannabe non-conformist: you think you're a non-conformist? you're so emo for wearing black nail polish. so you're not a non-conformist because you think you're emo. ew.

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.

I'm a nonconformist, just like my friends! By consciously avoiding the status quo, I've created a new one!

While sometimes hypocritical - it does vary.
You can't generalize on this definition.
there are the hypocrites and those who really truly believe in non-comformity.
hypocritical NC : god, everyone likes modest mouse now ! I liked them 1stt and like so i muss hate them now !

NC : I don't like all that punk rock shit and I won't pretend I do. Sure, you can like it if you want but i'm not going to pretend I do like it.

a person who does what they want, not what society wants and doesnt care about fashion, vanity, others opinions etc. nonconformists arent emos. NOT EMO, emos are anticonformists,who are annoying, and are actually just conforming to something else, and should be exterminated. anyone with an education beyond the 4th grade knows this.
prep/conformist: OMG, lik lets totalllly go out and parteeeee!!!!!!!111

emo: if your going to a party, im gonna go home and cut myself and feel sorry for myself.

nonconformist: im gonna go and get a smiley face tatoo on my ass because i want to.

A person who refuses to be a "conformist sheep", but usually just ends up conforming to a different standard than most people. In the 1950s, the "nonconformists" were the beakniks, in the 1960s there were hippies, in the 1970s freakers came along, in the 1980s punks and goths emerged as the new standard of nonconformity, etc.
STAN: "How do I become a nonconformist?"

GOTH KID: "You have to dress the same way we do, and listen to the same kind of music we like."
