Aesthetics Wiki

Subcultures and stereotypes include "types" of people that have similar interests, such as in fashion, music, activities, and even personalities. This is carried out in real life, almost always affecting social circles and how others perceive the person in the subculture. Unlike the internet aesthetic category, some people here often are not purposefully trying to look a certain way or enjoy the culture through an aesthetic lens. For example, geeks don't have geek aesthetic blogs or try to mimic the aesthetic of a piece of media. The pages here also include some music, fashion, and aesthetic communities because of the strong overlap with the definition.

This category also includes stereotypes, which, unlike subcultures, are often mainstream. These are commented on by others not of that stereotype; the conception of Jocks are an example. A good litmus test is if there is a "starter pack" made of this type of person. Many included here are ephemeral trends and can/did die out; a stereotype/subculture is not necessarily based on longevity.
