The present study investigated about life history in adolescence through making life-history graph from dimension of important event, and impression and describing change of feelings and meanings about them on questionnaire. Furthermore, the purposes of this study were to understand self-development of adolescence in past-present-future and to investigate effects of reflection taken by graph making. Each time dimension were positioned as "meaning's re-construction toward affirmative vector for past life event", "affirmative meanings for present self", and "affirmative meanings for future". As a result, multiple aspects of self-development were shown by description-based qualitative analysis. Also, reflection effects such as "affirmative self-understanding", "eagerness to self-development", and "unfavorable self-understanding" was achieved. Furthermore practical significance was found. Throughout all discussion, possibility of "qualitative questionnaire method" by active usage of the life-history graph as adolescent psychological research method and descriptive data such as meanings and reflection was suggested.
