This study aims to describe the portrait of American preadolescence personality in Instant Family Film, and it explains its causal factors based on Alfred Adler's perspective. This study is a qualitative descriptive with the literature psychology approach. Data sources are taken from dialogues and scenes in Instant Family film. Data collection techniques used are watching, listening, and taking notes. Data validity techniques used are increasing perseverance and discussing with colleagues. Data analysis techniques used are based on Miles and Huberman model. They are data collection, data reduction, data display, and conclusion drawing. The result shows that (1) Inferiority forms are feeling lonely, feeling difficult to adapt in a new environment, selfish, being careless, discouraged easily, quite emotional, and feeling high ambitious.They were successful in realizing their superiority through being obedient, cheerful, optimistic, and talented one same as their interest, being happy like biological children. Their subjective perception forms are portraits of a happy family that does all activities like other families. Therefore adoption is not a problem to create a harmonious family. The social interests shown are empathy from both foster parents and the social environment around them. Then, they have a unique lifestyle but simple. 2) the causal factors of inferiority complexity are negative perspectives about foster children in orphanages especially teenagers. Causal factors of striving for superiority, subjective perception and social interest are coming from good communication between family members and all three siblings. On the other hand, the causal factors of unique and simple lifestyles are coming from their simple backgrounds such our houses, clothes, even their simple toys, and playing areas
