    Hipsters are giant douchebags who are, almost by definition, inauthentic.

    I don't find this crosses over very well into TJ territory.

    Perhaps more for ETJs, but, even then...

    But with ITJs, not really.

    Some of us might have eclectic taste, but we almost unanimously hate hipsters.

    I find this OP rather odd... are you asking because you're looking for an STJ hipster, or you think you may have found one?

I DO think some might look down on a sort of artistic sincerity, though. I might be guilty of this--I was kind of shocked at how honest and earnest non-postmodern literature was after not reading it for a while.
    I guess I associate that insincerity with being detached. Sincerity means believing in something, which means being attached to something emotionally. You don't need to be attached to anything if you just sit back and make snide comments from your lofty hipster pedestal -- especially if you're mocking them for having any of those sincere attachments at all! (Which hipsters seem wont to do.)
    And I've never met anyone who ACTUALLY dislikes bands because they're mainstream and likes bands because they're not. I really think that's a pretty cynical way of looking at it.
    I have met one of those people, and he was obnoxious as hell! When asked why he felt that way, he went off on this pseudo-intellectual-poser-Marxist spiel about how "art is a commodity".

    Ok, I guess this makes sense, especially in light of @SilkRoad's post. But I think an STJ would have to be pretty insecure, to want to act like that, since I agree with @Zarathustra that healthy STJs aren't naturally prone towards that level of fakery.

    No, there's a minority of drinking, misogynizing frat kids to pick on.

    Every variation of hipster exists.

    Other types of hipsters are so mainstream.
    I don't see any invisible treasure chests.

    Odd? I was just curious. Wasn't sure if I had ever seen one. I have since met an ISTJ hipster. As well as dated an INTJ hipster. Though he would never call himself one.
