Abstract: The aims of the study were to develop a questionnaire on self-reported social loafing (SRSLQ),
and then to examine its relations with role ambiguity and role satisfaction in a sample of 110
women handball players competing at the elite level in Norway. Structural equation modeling
analyses indicated that the SRSLQ was a psychometrically sound measure. In line with the
expectations, role satisfaction fully mediated the positive relation between role ambiguity and
self-reported social loafing: The more players experienced role ambiguity, the less satisfied
they were with their role in the team, and the more social loafing they reported.
