A person who goes on about how s/he is incredibly against stereo-types (generally by shopping at Hot Topic, fancy that) and prefers to hang in the company of other 'non-conformists,' while they live in the facade that they're a special and different from everyone else. However, in reality, when you look upon a crowd of self-proclaimed non-comformists, you really don't notice any signifigance between them. So, in simple terms, all the non-comformists looking to look different, all look the same.
Non-comformists love their conformity.

A person who likes to think they are a rebel by hating the more popular people in schools. Often accusing people of being arrogant, though they themselves are arrogant because they believe their thoughts are more important than others. They often complain about labels and people sticking other people in labels, and then they label others like preps by saying all preps are blonde or shop at A&E. "Non-Conformists" often seem to be goths, rebels with out a cause, or other forms of losers. "Non-conformists" do exactly what they claim not to, they conform to the idea of non conformity. Stop crying cause you want to be unique, everyone has to conform to something so just pick one and stop crying!
Non-Conformist: I sit at home, cry and complain about conformity on the internet on saturday nights.
Other Person: That's stupid.
Non-Conformist: What ever Prep! Why don't you go back to the Abercombie store!

A total douchebag, someone who thinks they're cool by creating a negative sterotype of themself. Basically a person with no friends.
Nonconformist: You laugh at me because I'm different. I laugh at you because You're all the same.
Jock: No, I laugh at you because you're a pussy.

con·form

1. to act in accord with the prevailing standards, attitudes, practices, etc., of society or a group: One has to conform in order to succeed in this company.
2. to be or become similar in form, nature, or character.

A nonconformist, you would think, is the exact opposite of that definition. That would be implied by the prefix "non".
A nonconformist would not act like a certain group. They would not conform to a certain society. They would just be themselves.

It is impossible to be a non conformist. Notice how people who claim to be nonconformists tend to be humans? Well, if they are, then they are conforming to be human. Therefore, rendering it impossible that they are a nonconformist. That is destroying the definition on a technical level, now comes where it is challenged on a lower level.

It has also occurred to me that whenever I see somebody call themselves a nonconformist, they seem to have an "emo-ish" appearance. Now dont get me wrong, im not saying that this is a problem that they look this way. But it does seem odd that they are saying that they are not conforming to anything when they are obviously part of a group. See the problem here?

The point is. The word nonconformist is stupid. It should not be used to describe a person. It just does not make sense.

Emo Girl: Hey Gerrit, like my new lip ring?
Gerrit: Er... not really. Why did you get that?
Emo Boy: Cause shes a non-conformist. Unlike you!!!
Gerrit: *Shrug*

Just because a rectangle claims to be a square doesn't make it true.

That is all.

A contradictory term which is only used by conformists themselves. If someone were to actually be a nonconformist (which I find impossible) then they would have no need for both the terms conformism and nonconformism.
