In this paper we characterize totally umbilic hypersurfaces in a space form by a property of the extrinsic shape of circles on hypersurfaces. This characterization corresponds to characterizations of isoparametric hypersurfaces in a space form by properties of the extrinsic shape of geodesics due to Kimura-Maeda.
