Abstract:
This study examines in terms of Adlerian Life Style as revealed through Early Recollections, actual and perceived Birth Order, and Family Atmosphere the personality characteristics of Korean adults adopted as infants in the United States of America. Eight Korean subjects participated in a structured, tape recorded interview. Each subject reported four early recollections and/or dreams. Transcripts of these interviews were given to a panel of expert Adlerian judges who collectively analyzed and interpreted the gathered information. A composite life style summary could be formulated by combining common themes and personality characteristics. Results indicate several common life style themes and personality characteristics. The most commonly shared attributes were expecting to be hurt, wanting to be accepted and important, and viewing others in a negative sense.
