In this paper, we calculate the masses and mixing angles of L = 1 negative parity N* resonances in an extended GBE (Goldstone-boson-exchange model) with harmonic-oscillator wave functions. By using those mixing angles, we get their photo-production amplitudes, and compare them with experimental data and the results of OPE (one-pion-exchange model), OPsE (only pseudoscalar meson exchange model), and OGE (one-gluon-exchange model). We find that the extended GBE gives right internal wave functions. It is essential to extend GBE to include not only pseudoscalar meson exchanges but also vector meson exchanges.
