Someone who doesn't conform and does what they feel comfertable! Unlike Townies, Goths, Grungers etc

If you fit under any of them stereotypes, you obviously are not individual no matter what the rest of you're 'group' think!
Wearing any clothes you feel comfertable in, whether it is in fashion or not, and not just because the rest of your friends wear it! Listening to whatever music you like whether it be from 50 years ago or number 1 in the chart right now!

in reality, there is no such thing as individuality as everyone is influenced by somthing, people who claim to be "an individual" are generally tits
individual: "hello, i am individual"
random guy: "do shut up"

A word that in recent times has become analogous to the term "enlightenment" in eastern religion in that no one is sure what it is,no one can describe it and no one has ever been reported to have attained it. But everyone seems to know that everyone who claims to have attained it is lying.
People who try to "express their individuality" end up conforming to something anyway, so all you {insert subculture here}s should just go slit your wrists now.

moral stance, political philosophy, ideology, or social outlook that stresses "the moral worth of the individual".1 Individualists promote the exercise of one's goals and desires and so independence and self-reliance2 while opposing most external interference upon one's own interests, whether by society, family or any other group or institution.
Transcendentalists believe in INDIVIDUALISM and reject society's expectations but rather act independently.

Get the Individualism mug.
An individual who doesnt classify themself under a stereotypical catagory. (prep,emo,punk,nerd etc.)

they dress how they want to dress, listen to what they want to listen to and do what they want to do and normally people respect that. an individual hates to be labeled.

Individual means that you can choose your own goals, make your own dumb decisions and your own mistakes. Nobody tells you to do something this or that way. You're on your own, you are free.
You're individual

Def1)A person who lives life dominated by their own personal values, beleifs, and ambitions. A true "individual" doesn't even realize they are an individual, they are just doing their thing and it feels natural to them. Anyone who calls themselves an individual and thinks they arn't part of culture and society is stupid and just as unindividual as they people they look down on for joining mainstream culture. Listening to obscure indie music doesn't make you an individual. Wearing trendy clothes does not make you an individual.

Def2)But really, everyone is an individual, the previously mentioned "true individual" who does their thing because it comes naturally to them is really just a confident, intelligent person who stands out from the crowd, but in actuallity is no different that everyone else just because humans, in a basic sense, live for the same things (their values, ambitions, personal relationships, dreams, ect). Its impossible not to be an individual, because people have evolved as societies for the last million years and your attitude can not change that. Everyone has their own values and beleifs, but their behaviour is shaped in varying degrees by their setting and role in a situation. This is undeniable and undebatable fact of human existance. The people who appear to be "individual" just have their behaviour and morals/ideas influenced by a different aspect of life than the observer's own beliefs.
Def1) Jane- "I love you so much, Bill, you're just such an individual"
Bill- "What? I'm not doing anything special, I'm just living life"

Ellen- "I'm an individual. I'm not controlled by the mindless drone that is mainstream culture. I don't get my ideas by watching MTV like everyone else. I listen to Arcade Fire. I have a red streak in my hair. Why are people such sheep?"
Drederick- "Bitch shut the fuck up, you and your friends all look the same and every high school has a group of you sorry losers. You arn't unique, and you arn't individual"

Def2) Everyone is an individual. But not everyone realizes that, so we get cultural bullshit from a few lame high school kids.
