n. One who does not belong to a specific genre or group of people, but "dabbles" in a little bit of everything. One may be called hipster, or hippie, or scene, or punk, or grunge, or white trash, or nerd, or alternative, or pothead at any given time. This individual simply enjoys every type of people and cannot conform into one type.

This person may enjoy getting a little PBR on his mustache while also hula hooping and playing a tambourine in the park. He might lean against a tree, snort some cocaine, and write a parody about a statistical analysis of the Tea Party's incapability of having intelligence to the tune of a Velvet Underground song. This person may be wearing ridiculously skinny jeans for the sake of the hipster or of the scene kid. You just don't know!
Who does she think she is with her Woody Allen glasses, Bohemian head scarf, August Burns Red t-shirt, leather jacket, pleated mom jeans, ruffle socks, and Vans? She's such a dabbler.
