1. The guy who wrote the definition of hipster that starts with

"Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking. . ."

and continues in an incredibly self-important and disappointing manner to idealize this counter-AnyRemoteUsefullnessToHumanCultureAndItsDevelopment

2. A very bad omen for the future
"Do you realize that the next generation of voters will be flooded with apathetic hipsters?"

"God help us"

Annoying 120lb toothpicks running around in tight trousers and even tighter t-shirts.
Tend to (falsely) believe they're witty, eccentric, and refined, when in reality they have zero interests of their own and need to cling on to anything viewed as "uncool" to have something to talk about.

They're very head-strong, particularly when it comes to politics, an area in which they view themselves as enlightened.

Love to read just for the sake of it; they rarely take anything away from the texts. Chomsky is a favourite, as is Voltaire.
They also write -- most will attempt poetry, or a novel, which will be set in a far-off fantasy world with characters named "Takeshi" and "Riku".

Music-wise, hipsters love anything which isn't popular: mainly indie bands straight out of the sub-urban garage complete with nasal American singing and vain, repetitive lyrics.

You can usually find them in Starbucks on a Tuesday morning complaining in their blog, attending local protests (they have to maintain the image of being rebellious), or crawling around in the woods taking photographs of dead leaves.
Hipster: Look at me! I'm wearing tight black trousers with PINK striped socks and *blue* hair! I'm so eccentric lolz.
Hermit math wiz: No, I'm eccentric: I live with 200 cats, eat their food, and have a 163 IQ.

Hipster: Am I a connoisseur or do I just have too much time on my hands? You decide! ;)

n. A perpetual child/self-professed intellectual. While the word "hipster" might have been tied to social awareness in the past, a modern hipster is defined as a consumer demographic by marketers. Bad beer, Apple products, gay pants, the music of undeserving bands, and pseudophilosophy e-books are all associated with hipsters. This change was carefully planned and executed out of desperation by dying hipsters in the 2000s Great Irony Famine.

Most deluded species of slacker in the world. Living bastardization of caring humanitarian. Would bring about own death by thirst if really in a third-world nation (whining).

Does not realize that people don't necessarily take typical jobs in skilled trade, social work, or applied sciences because they are sheep, but because they realize the importance of being, at the very least, self-sufficient. Shies away from hard studies because s/he is satisfied to complain about the rest of humanity. Putting hipster through serious schooling to make said hipster apply this education to human welfare is nearly impossible.

Believe it is noble to refuse work at a boring job in favor of artistic pursuits. (Some photographers, writers, and journalists become successful, but they truly work in the more competitive field, because, after a certain point, art is useless to human advancement). Does not realize that lucrative/respected careers in the arts require talent and entail endless work and self-promotion, though s/he does the latter by nature.
1. "Look at all these conformists, buying all these pointless things that I happen to not like---HOLYFUCKISTHATANEWIPHONE!?! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDADDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY"

2. Trey Parasuco, the author of the notoriously self-aggrandizing top definition. Known for being so insecure about the hipster image that he, in typical hipster fashion, authored an intelligent, completely non-delusional thesis about hipsters, which was immediately rated up by thousands of esteemed members of the scientific community.

Hipsters are people that have the ability to think for themselves. There are broad subdivisions of hipsters that get labels based on the clothes they wear. A lot of the negativity expressed in the prior definitions are targeted toward emo and fashioncore people. I might be, or might hang out with a bunch of hipsters, but we don't call ourselves that or even talk about it, but i've seen others referred to as hipsters because they engage in conversations that have substance. The conversations a hipster might have generally revolve around culture, drugs, nature, politics, and soceity. Instead of wasting time in front of the television being brainwashed hipsters spend it enjoying the fruits of life. Whether it be music, poetry, making your own fashion, or just trying to change the world. The reason a lot of hipsters seem arrogant is because they generally spend their time around other hipsters learning and experiencing new things.

A lot of people are intimidated by the amount of knowledge a hipster might posess regarding his subjects of interest, because instead of doing nothing at all hipsters tend to do things.

Most hipsters are enlightened individuals through psychedelic drug use and shun some of soceity's accepted evils like religion, the television, and marketing in general. Instead of buying what is sold to you on the television at a normal price, why not get what you need at the thrift store, be unique, and then spend the money elsewhere and support the kind of culture you indulge in.

If you had a 3rd generation or before ipod, you are a probably a hipster. You might be one or not be one based on that, but its a pretty good guideline.
"Wait... your calling me a stupid hipster because I shop at the Salvation Army, think for myself and follow the culture I can relate to the most and instead of spending my money on jeans I bought these turntables and a bunch of ecstacy, and I'm arrogant because I'd like to hang around people that are open with their feelings, don't talk behind others backs, and have similar interests more than I'd like to hang out with you and discuss the latest mtv reality show and contemplate what Paris Hilton will do next?"

Someone who is part of a teenage subculture. For example skaters, hip-hoppers, mods, hippies, emos, jocks, ravers, metal-fans, rockers, geeks, punks, nerds, couch-potatoes, demosceners.

These scenes usually have adapted to a certain style of clothing, music, sports, behaviour which the teenagers following that scene support, as opposed to the mainstream teenagers who wear expensive clothes from brands known for child-labour, music dictated by the big music companies, thinking they are unique that way and making fun of the "hipsters" because they go their own way.
"Look at that emo guy over there with his thrift shop clothing, totally a hipster"

"So what, at least he's not walking around with $200 Evisu jeans and an iPod like you do!"

a pretentious unemployed person who somehow acquired an extravagant apartment in Manhattan, Williamsburg, or Park Slope, listens to obscure indie and foreign music, says they like photography, art, and film, and does not own a television. Often seen eating a banana while walking.
person: what's your favorite band?
hipster: I would tell you, but you wouldn't know them.
person: oh. my favorite band is AFI
hipster: AFI?!?!?! THAT'S MAINSTREAM!
