    I don't know, but I do know that I have seen enough skinny jeans, flannel shirts and Buddy Holly glasses lately to last me several lifetimes.

    The embodiment of postmodernism. They reject any sort of idea simply on the grounds that it is an idea. How anyone could call themselves progressive and yet condemn themselves to such a state of regression is beyond me.

    YES! You are like Linus figuring out the meaning of Christmas.

    They are the first, and I pray last, subculture that is purely post-modern. And what a horrible, horrible thing that is.

    yeah this kind of like bohemian fundamentalism.

    infps and infjs in particular seem really interested in exploring alternative lifestyles bc they don't fit in very easily by default in all but the most fortunate of circumstances. and hipster culture usually involves cultural innovations from geeky N types which then lose their luster when the american apparels and urban outfitters trickle down all the way to stinktown, nebraska.

    there's also a basic growth in urban 20something disaffection, confusion, etc. participating in those markets, growing up there, spending significant time during college there, this kind of chaos gets into you and you have to deal with all these consuming questions that give you more freedom than you can possibly imagine choice-wise but which forces upon you difficult choices which require you to say no to huge portions of the world, your immense possibilities, the way your life can go, etc. the culture market in those places reflects this diversity and frustration. but it still follows the logic of the market, especially when innovations get picked up as trends and the signs of success, the freshness of various identities, etc get their shit published and move up the ladder for their 15.

    in most cases, it's just another great social space for professional networkers to get kicks and coke problems.

    i see a lot of esfp females and the explosively crazy/angry/mercurial istp 7w8 drama queen. some isfps, of course, an exorbitant number of 3w4s (estp, enfj, entp), some distant e5 culture geeks, enfps who kinda culturally slut it up so to speak, and some honest to goodness e4s who are searching for a space against which they can most effectively define themselves. in my shitty market there's not really enough $$$ (financial incentive, loosely defined) overlap for any entjs to take interest.

    HAHA yeah we do that. i could see being hipster for like a week, just to try it out.

    oh but to actually add to the conversation, i know a pseudo-hipster ISFP, and besides her type it seems like INFJs and INFPs, maybe a few ISFJs too. the scene is definitely dominated by introverts on the whole. and the occasional ESFP.

    I don't know what a hipster is exactly. I thought it was a sort of counterculture thing, you know with 'Stickinittotheman' and such, a rebel, where you do anything to go against mainstream culture regardless of it's value if you look at it objectively.

    If that's what it means, then I'm pretty sure Stephen Hyde from that 70's show was a hipster, and I think he was ISTP. But maybe that's not what it means at all.

They sport cowboy hats and berets and think Kanye West stole their sunglasses. Everything about them is exactingly constructed to give off the vibe that they just don't care." - Wikipedia

    Once again, going on my previous idea of what hipsters are, I don't think Daria is really a hipster. She's cynical and misanthropic, but she doesn't seem to be the sort who just goes against things for the sake of it. She's too rational. She sees things and thinks "That makes no sense. It should be this way, which is more sensible and less superficial." I like Daria. I think she's what the hipster idea probably started out as and then got lost in proving their point.

    BTW is Bones an INTP? I always thought she was a J.

    There's quite a few different species within hipsterdom and certain personality types might match up better with one species than with another.

    For example:


    Th Expat



    The Flower Child



    The Yuppie



    The Activist



    The Artist


    There a few other species out there as well.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it
