Role satisfaction is the degree to which there is agreement between peoples roles and other aspects of their personal and social lives. Examples would include:

From an internal point of view someone might experience low role satisfaction being a teacher if the level of classroom discipline does not meet their own standards. From an interpersonal perspective someone may feel very satisfied with their role as teacher, as this is what their parents wanted them to be.
