The essay presents an outline of narrative psychology, which draws on the scientific traditions of psychological study, but adds to the existing theories by pursuing the empirical study of psychological meaning construction. It is assumed that Psychological phenomena are expressed in narratives at a high complexity level, which enables meaningful diagnosis and predictions. Thereby scientific narrative psychology opens a new perspective on complex phenomena such as cultural and evolutionary dimensions of personality and personal or social identity.
