    Default The Hipster



    Is the sterotypical hipster a NT or an NF?

    Seems like an INFP culture to me.

    Idk.

    I know I've never felt like I fit in amongst my hipster friends. I only occasionally hang out with them... like at a local concert.

    Sometimes I'll get into conversations about religion and politics. We agree on some stuff, but then they'll say something that I think is totally irrational and I'll tell them so and then they'll just look at me blankly and then change the subject.

    If I did the same thing to an NT friend that's an engineer or a lawyer they would just answer back my criticism and keep the conversation going.

    I think they tend to be NFs and not NTs.

    I would say your usual hipster is either an INFP or an ISFP. Most definitely not an NT. They pay too much attention to fashion. There's a lot of Se involved so I would say the stereotypical Hipster is ISFP or ESFP more than INFP.

    Hipster originally referred to a jazz oriented subculture in the 1940s.

    Now days, well...

    I love the Wiki article on contermporary so-called Hipsters.

    i think it really depends on the person and the precise nature of the subculture being considered "hipster". what one person might consider hipster another might consider hippie, or vice versa, and yet another person might have a different definition of both hipster AND hippie. add in people that add some punk and/or emo to the hipster, and you can see how this question can be answered differently depending on the respondent.

    Se is environmental in more ways than one.

    ESPs however tend to unconsciously gather what's more popular or funny in an majority/group way rather than fringe. It's just one element out of many on why they tend to be popular. They can hit a certain note that's cool, but not go too far with it (it's introverts who tend to not give a shit on displeasing a wider audience). ISFPs aren't trendy, but possibly trendsetting or creative or...possibly just too different to be seen as hip or start a trend. It's hit and miss.

    I don't think they're necessarily aloof or pompous hipsters though. Like, people who wear ironic mustaches or something. That could be any type.. trying too hard.
