In all, 10 role stresses have been identified, and an instrument has been prepared to measure these organizational role stresses. the basic feature of this study strives to achieve a systematic understanding of job stress, role stress, and its derived measures (such as self-role distance, inter-role distance, role stagnation, role ambiguity, role overload, role erosion, and role inadequacy) among the Kuwaiti employees. The sample consisted of 1046 Kuwaiti employees (501 males and 545 females) age average between 18 - 60, taken from different ministries and institutions in the state of Kuwait. the Role Stress Scale was administered in order to measure role stress and derived measures.
