Work-manifested need for achievement (nAch) and need for autonomy (nAut) were examined as moderators of relationships between facets of role conflict and role ambiguity and the outcomes, organizational commitment, job involvement, psychosomatic complaints, and propensity to leave the organization; Ss were 262 public sector employees. Results fail to provide convincing evidence of pervasive linear moderating effects due to nAch or nAut on the variable linkages examined. Greater support was found for treating nAch and nAut as independent predictor variables in the regression analyses. (19 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
