    In this study (based on a sample of N=2611 Dutch workers) we examine the moderating influence of the age-related variable Role clarity in the relation between (quantitative, emotional) demands, and several types of resources in predicting psychological well-being (measured as emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction and depression). The results revealed that role clarity moderated or buffered the effects of emotional demands in predicting job satisfaction and depression. For emotional exhaustion, role clarity moderated the effects of both emotional and quantitative demands, and for possibilities for development. We will discuss the practical as well as scientific implications of the results found.
