Abstract:

Having regard to a model of role as its general framework, the potential influence of certain pre-situational factors on role functioning is discussed. We have dealt mainly with motivation as one of such factors, aiming to locate some of the factors contributing to its formation. An examination of the relationship between pre-situational factors and actual role-performance would have necessitated a follow-up study of the respondents on their taking up their various occupational roles. Though such a study was not available, the existing empirical material enabled us to show that without considering pre-situational factors such as motivation, no clear understanding of proper role functioning, as well as of motives governing choice of an occupational role or any role, could be achieved.
