The Self-Control Type
According to Alfred Adler's lifestyle theory, you are the social type who likes to be in control of themselves. You usually do not hide your feelings, act decisively when you feel that something is not going according to your wishes and are not ashamed of yourself and your desires - something that may sometimes tempt you to control the lives of those around you.<br><br> You dislike people who do not express an honest opinion or those who prefer personal space over social pastimes. You know exactly who you are and what you want and no one around will stop you on the way to your goals, which are quite clearly defined.
The Dependant Type
According to Alfred Adler's lifestyle theory, you are the dependant social type. The people around you are the most important thing to you and sometimes you can not manage even one day without their presence - this can portray you as a person who feels at times challenged when they have to manage on their own. On the one hand this is understandable, since social interaction itself is often used for getting help from others, but on the other hand we should and must learn to trust ourselves above all others, and in the moment before we turn to others, we need to ask ourselves: Do we really need other people for this? Could we manage on our own?
The Avoidant Type
According to Alfred Adler's lifestyle theory, you are people who love your independence and trust only yourself 100%. You try to stay away from crowded and crowded areas, prefer spending time in solitude with one good friend over a party with a bunch of people, and generally find the home to be your safe haven. You are highly self-sufficient, enjoy your own company but can also be quite social when in your own little circle of friends and family. These are all positive qualities, but it is important to remember that our society is not bad by nature and that there are strangers out there that may become your dear friends.
The Social Type
According to Adler's lifestyle theory, you are a 'social butterfly'. You are a walking energy bomb, abundant in social interests and able to devote a lot of time to others and their needs. You manage wonderfully in groups because you don't suffer from feelings of inferiority or superiority, or any other large social anxieties. You have a good level of self confidence. You don't take life too seriously. You do your duty with love and succeed in overcoming obstacles thanks to a positive spirit and a lot of faith that your social energy will be returned to you.
