The article aims at arguing with the data from the presented study for the regulatory function of the human life idealization in adolescent and adult development. The data were obtained from the longitudinal study of 108 persons who were interviewed with Biographical Judgment Interview twice with 6-7 years periods between the consecutive interviewing. The data were used to test three hypotheses; (i) idealization of human life is performed each time when human life worth of living is referred to as an object in order to make choices of action which are significant for the life course; (ii) the object of this idealization belong to opaque ideals which may only be made partially clear by interpretation mediating between the mind operation and the object; and (Hi) interpretation of human life ideal may grow in adequacy with years. The data provide strong evidence for the true value of the hypotheses. They are implied by the broader theory of human individual development which opposes the mainstream conceptualizations inspired by biological model of ontogenetic development.
