Lifestyles (sociology)

Lifestyles are the interests, opinions, behaviors, and behavioral orientations of a person, group, or culture. The term was introduced by the Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler in the sense of “the basic character of a person established in early childhood”, for example, in his 1929 book “The Case of Miss R.”.

A wider sense of lifestyle as a “lifestyle or lifestyle” has been documented since 1961. Lifestyle is a combination of the definition of intangible or material factors.

LifestylesMaterial factors relate specifically to demographic variables, that is, to an individual’s demographic profile, while non-material factors relate to the psychological aspects of the individual, such as personal values, preferences, and attitudes.

In rural areas, the way of life differs from the urban one in a megacity. Location is important even in urban settings. The nature of the area in which a person lives, affects the way of life available to this person,

due to differences in the degree of wealth of different areas and proximity to natural and cultural environments. For example, in areas close to the sea, a surf culture or lifestyle may often be present.
