In every life history the narrator introduces different personalities she has known, met, worked or lived with in a different/specific way. It is done in the context of frequent topics such as work, home, school etc. The paper introduces notions such as narrative presence (subjectivity) and life presence (objectivity); mentioned once and mentioned repeatedly; positive and negative emotional contexts for the personality presented etc. The analysis suggests a matrix of the narrator's internal and external socialization.
