as a guy, if I grew out my hair long, wore a lot of vintage jewelry, and talked about philosophy, would people think I am a sage or mystic,?

    Yes, but you don't have to look like something to fit a social role.

    I can't speak for everyone, but some people would think you were weird.  Some people would thing you were gay.  If your hair is grey or white, some will think you were a hippie. 

    I would think you were a narcissist. Not like a certain prominent man who was called a narcissist. No long hair and beads on him. But you want to draw attention to yourself.  A true sage or mystic does not need the heads and long hair costume.

    Some people will believe anything. Some people don't judge people based on their hair or jewelry. If your talk about philosophy is shallow, senseless, drivel, people will probably think you're a pretentious douchebag. If your philosophy is deep, insightful, inspiring, and effectively communicated, people may think you wise. I know it's not much to go on, but based on your question here, I'm not betting on you having much success.

    Maybe in the 1960's but not anymore, sorry.

    They will probably think that you are a homeless

    Why would you want to make fool out of yourself, and look like hippie!

    No, people would just think you're a lazy gay neck beard.
