Abstract. The article presents the possibility of researching the individual experience on a personal level through the characteristics of the narrative forms` organization analysis. Traditional hermeneutical approach studies the narrative as a linguistic form that shows the personal experience of the subject, allows to structure, transform and be aware of it. The author emphasizes the basic properties of the narrative that represent features of the personal experience of the subject. The characteristics of autobiographical texts were identified that reflect such features of personal experience as consistency, openness and dialogicity. The author suggested the criteria that can be used in procedures of intent and content analysis to quantify the level of personal experience`s formation properties.

Keywords: individual experience, personal experience, narrative, text, hermeneutic approach, intent analysis, content analysis.
