1975 Journal of Applied Psychology  
The moderating effects of need for achievement and need for independence on relationships between role ambiguity, role conflict, and job satisfaction were investigated. Subjects were 90 military and civil service personnel. Results indicated that need for achievement moderates relationships between intersender role conflict and satisfaction and between task ambiguity and satisfaction, while need for independence moderates the relationship between intersender conflict and satisfaction.
