This paper is about the hacker subculture. The paper breaks the misused term 'hacker' in to its sub categories provides descriptions of the categories and a psychological profile of the most common type.
Hackers cannot be defined by skin color, religion, or race, nor can they properly be generalized as one group. Hackers are not a homogeneous group, they have a variety of values, beliefs and experience that can dramatically set one hacker apart
