Description

People typically occupy at least one role in groups to which they belong. We hypothesized that when allowed to choose their roles, people will show role consistency across groups and they will rate those roles more positively. Our 108 participants identified the main role they played in three self-selected groups, indicated whether each role was freely chosen, and rated satisfaction. Results did not show role consistency, but participants felt more positively about freely chosen roles.
