Survivalist transhumanism according to Nick Bostrom 'emphasizes personal survival and longevity' and is a popular individualistic type.

Anyone who espouses radical life extension as the most important goal of transhumanism belongs in this camp. Jethro Knight, protagonist in Zoltan Istvan’s The Transhumanist Wager is a representative, with quotes like:

Death must be conquered… that is my first and foremost aim in life. That is the quintessential first goal of the transhumanist.

Christopher Benek coined the term Individualism+ and I+ to refer to critique Zoltan Istvan's individualistic approach towards self preservation and individualistic enhancement.[1]
