The scientific definition of a hipster

From Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me on NPR - 

SAGAL: Thanks to researchers at Harvard, we now know the scientific definition of a hipster. The answer is unjustified disapproval of whatever it is your friends and peers like.


KIGHT: I disagree with that.

SAGAL: You disagree with that. Oh, that’s so lame.


SAGAL: The study observed the habits of 200 self-described hipsters, and they noticed that once a hipster discovers that his or her friends likes the same band they like, they then reject that band. Upon hearing the results, though, several hipsters said they actually prefer the results from an independent study you probably haven’t heard of.
