Alfred Adler (1956) defined "a way of life pattern" as "a lifestyle" because each person has a life pattern. Further, he mentioned that all human troubles emanate from interpersonal relations. It is necessary to understand each other's lifestyle so that interpersonal relationships can develop well. If all individuals benefited from their own lifestyles, they could build better relationships in various situations. However, in Japan, no diagnostic questionnaire has been developed yet. Therefore, in this study, 14 questions were created for individuals to categorize their personalities into four types, based on Adler's lifestyle typology. Then, research was conducted.
According to the four types, a logical approach to understand the personal character should be required. Therefore, it is reported that there is a relationship between the results of the lifestyle sheet and the Big Five: the personal trait theory.
