The main purpose of this study is to hypothesize the existence of the general sense of role satisfaction and device a scale to measure it. The participants in study 1 were 1029 Japanese high school students (484 men and 545 women). The result of exploratory factor analysis suggested that the two-factor structure is adequate. One is "social rolefulness" and another is "internal rolefulness." The result of confirmatory factor analysis showed that fit indexes of the model are found to be acceptable (CFI = 0.994, RMSEA = 0.045, GFI = 0.989, AGFI = 0.975). The participants in this study 2 were 816 Japanese high school students (362 men and 454 women) and the aim for this study was to reconfirm the validity and reliability of the Rolefulness Scale using another sample. The result of the CFA also showed the acceptable fitness: (CFI = 0.992, RMSEA = 0.055, GFI = 0.985, AGFI = 0.966).
