Let's say someone says "I'm traditional", and I wanted to ask "In what respect/regard are you traditional?" How would I translate this?

Most commonly, people say:

「どんな/どのような/どういう + 点{てん} +

So, you could say:

「どんな点で古風{こふう}なんですか。」

You will also hear:

「どういう意味{いみ}で古風なの/なのですか/なんですか。」

A few more suggestions to add to the other answers:

(あなたの)どこが(Traditional)なの?

(あなたは)どんな風に(Traditional)なの?

(あなたの)どんなところが(Traditional)なの?

My immediate thought was どう言うふうに: "In what way?", or "how so?".

I feel like you could also use

{何の・どんな}[面]{めん}で~

although I'm not completely confident in that.

  • 伝わりはしますが、せめて「どんな面で」の方がいいと思います。 – naruto Jan 31 '18 at 4:24
