1. (adj.) one who steals or copies another person's ideas, thoughts, words, or actions and attempts to pass them off as their own.

2. (adj.) someone who pretends to be of a certain group of people in order to become more popular, look cool, or fit in.

3. (adj.) a sorry sucker who is only believable enough to fool themselves and the other poor bastards who fall into the same category.

4. (adj.) a human being with low self-confidence or high levels of immaturity who believe that by living a lie, they will be able to redeem themselves for who they trully are.

The usual lot of posers nowadays include anywhere between tween, pre-teen, and teen. They are made blatantly identifiable by there over the top make-up, hair, costume, action, and 'persona' developed in order to insinuate themselves into whatever category the poser is attempting to infiltrate.
An official dead give-away for a poser is the afore mentioned appearance. But one of the most tell-tale signs of a poser is the fact that they really have absolutely no idea about whatever it is that they are trying to imitate. Simply, they have no understanding of it, and fly by on the bare-bones of knowledge they have probably gathered swiftly over the internet.

Selena Gomez

Avril Lavigne

Miley Cyrus

the whores of tween/pre-teen/and teen sets who think they can pull of the emo/scene/rock/skater/punk etc.,etc.,etc. look.

Poser: Like OMG, that new Tokio Hotel stuff is soo cool!

Non-poser: Um, I don't really listen to that. I'm more of a Lamb of God type of guy :D

Poser: ...........

Non-poser: .... :/ Sure.

A poser, often, is said to be a person who decides that they need to be more different, realizing that they really arent thay great. This poser then goes to the next show at the skate park and attempts to hardcore dance. They fall and hurt their head on the table.
Poser: Yeah...you indie kids are pretty cool.
Indie kid:.....okay...?
Poser: this band is pretty intense, i have their CDs and shirts at my house. I wrote all their lyrics on my wall.
Indie kid:...well....they're local...not signed...don't have a CD out yet, and instrumental.
Poser: Oh. Damnit.
Indie kid: Oh, posers...i enjoy you so.

The poser then leaves the show.

Someone who doesn't appreciate all of the good music from all different genres for it's musicalness and musicality , but instead only likes one genre only and latches onto that one genre in it's entirety , it's look , it's clothing , it's fashion , it's lifestyle , all in a feeble attempt to be seen as cool and to act like a snob and pretend they are better than someone else who's not into their narrow , shallow , narcissistic , superficial , artificial coolness.
punk idiot: I'm like so punk , I act punk , I dress punk , I look so fucking punk , and all I listen to is punk.
metal idiot: I'm like so fucking metal , I act metal , I dress dress metal , I look so metal and badass , and all I listen to is metal.
normal person: You guys are posers.Good music and bad music exists in all genres of music and you need to listen to more than just one genre of music. Besides if all you listen to is just one genre then you must be suffering from the delusion that everything in that one genre constitutes GOOD MUSIC which is impossible since every genre has it's share of good music and bad music regardless of how simple or complex the music is.You guys just don't want to have to think too hard (aw is thinking too hard?) and so you take the easy way out and latch onto one thing hard.Then you adopt the look and the fashion and the hairdo and the lifestyle and "pose" as that image and think that makes you all cool and badass.It doesn't.You're lame.Posers!

Is the kind of guy who pretends to be kind and sensitive but really he's controlling and he lies. He may even go to the extreme to start his own meetup group and say it’s for 20 and 30 year olds only…. but he is the kind of guy that really just wants to pick and choose who he likes and lets them into the group because of his extreme control issues. Mostly this kind of poser would include young single girls because he thinks they are not smart enough to identify a poser when they see one. Then he makes up stories to scare young girls into thinking 70 year old men are going to be fondling them and hitting on them in Frederick bars unless he they are part of his group so they run thankfully into his arms out of gratitude.

He is the kind of guy that played the flute in HS, and wanted to be Peter Pan as a child just to wear the tights. His only social outlet is his new group and it makes his cock really hard knowing he can control everything about it. He has no real substance and therefore it's hard to carry on anything but a superficial conversation with him. He clearly was breastfed too long and has deep love/hate issues with his mother.

His ultimate destiny will be to marry a really stupid hot-chick (don't forget looks matter to him) late in his life (but she'll be 25) that likes being controlled but after 8 years and 1 kid she'll resent his control and divorce him leaving him at age 40 and he won't be able to join his own group anymore.
Craig: You know the FNL group has 70 year old that hit on 20 year olds so I started this group to save them.

Random 20 year old girl: Oh Craig you are so wonderful! Let me hug you for saving me!!! Please take me home with you!!!


Craig: Mom, I'm so lonely and bored so I started a new group so I could play with peoples lives. It was fun until I took heat for it then I tattled on them to authorities who didn't really give a rat's ass......can I please be breastfed now?

Craig's Mom: Craig, even I know you are a poser. Grow up.
