Role Sets Sociology Help

Role Sets 

The-term role set is used to indicate that a status may have not just a single role but a number of related behaviors. Meanwhile, one may fill several different role sets at the same time. A person may be a business manager, a parent, a church officer, a reservist in the National Guard, and a prominent civic leader. This multiplicity of roles may make for some role strain but not necessarily so; and it may also increase one's overall fulfillment and life satisfaction [Sieber, 1974].
