2. Think you're more intelligent or cultural for liking those thingsWhat's wrong with that? It's called having pride and there's nothing wrong with pride alone.
You shouldn't have pride in enjoying something. You might have pride for doing something or creating something, but you shouldn't be proud to enjoy something. Anyone can do that, it's just a matter of opinion.
6. Think that you are the first, or one of few, to enjoy the things that you enjoyActually, I don't really understand this one? That's a pretty vague statement.
Taking a band that's pretty well known (I'll use Foster the People, for example, an Indie band that's pretty well known) and saying that
1. You knew this band before anybody else did
2. Nobody else knows this band
The first one is highly unlikely, and the second one is just false.
Basically, if you don't act like a pretentious twat, you aren't one.So when have you ever experienced this, first hand?
I know a lot of people who
1. Insist on not listening to any well known music.
2. Think of themselves as having a better musical taste than anyone else, because the music they like is lesser known.
3. Think that "nobody listens to old music but them"
Hipsters are people who think that being different makes them better. I'm not saying it makes them worse, or that be conforming to the norm you are better, I'm just saying that doing something for the sake of being better than someone makes you a pretentious douche.
