The Baum Test (The Tree Test) constructed by Koch, K. (1957) has been used in various areas within the study of the clinical psychology in Japan because it is easily carried out and provides a lot of information about the personality of a drawer. At the same time, the test has many problems to solve, so in this paper, I investigated the influence of the ego-involvement degree, the complementarity in this test interpretation, and the possibility of psychotherapy from the viewpoint of a narratological character that this test has. From this study we can conclude the following: (1) when we carry out this test, an attitude of "Participate Observation" (Sullivan. S. 1953) is necessary. ; (2) when we interpret this test, it is effective to understand complementary relationships between elements which a drawn tree has. ;(3) we must comprehend that drawing a tree has a therapeutic meaning where a new story (Alternative Story) is constructed.
