Japanese Adjectives List. 50 Adjectives for Personality

Hello Junkies,

Today you’ll learn Japanese Adjectives – but not ANY adjectives. These are adjectives for your (and others’) personality. This way, you can talk about yourself and the type of person you are. Are you…

  • Moody?
  • Energetic?
  • Charismatic? Let’s find out.

Japanese Adjectives List – 50 Adjectives for Personality

Okay, this is a BIG list. Here’s how I suggest you learn with this.

  • Read, review, and read out loud
  • Print it out as physical review material (I like printing stuff)
  • Listen to the Audio lesson at the bottom for pronunciation
  • Save images for your personal use (as flashcards)
  • At the end, you’ll learn how to say “I am (adjective).”

Below, you’ll see the English, then the Japanese (Kanji, Hiragana/Katakana) and the Romaji (so you can read it and pronounce it). It’s broken up into 5 parts to make life easier for you. Just review and read out out.

Leave a comment and let me know which of these Japanese Adjectives on this list fits your personality best! To able to say what kind of person you are, there are 2 easy ways. You can either I say “I am ______” or “I am a/an ______ person.” 

For the first way, if the adjective/phrase ends with “aru” then you can skip “desu.” Why? You can end the sentence with a verb (like aru… or desu, which is kind of like a verb).

1. I am (adjective)… in Japanese

  • I am _______.
  • Watashi wa ______ desu.
  • 私は___です。

For the second way, if the adjective is a “na” adjective – look it up on the charts above – then you’ll need to add “na” before “hito.”

2. I am a/an (adjective) person … in Japanese

  • I am a _____ person.
  • Watashi wa ____ hito desu.
  • 私は____人です。

Now, here’s your assignment. What kind of person are you? Find the word in the Japanese adjectives list above. Then, leave me a comment. I read all comments.

Hope you enjoyed this!
