DOI: 10.1177/017084069301400405 Abstract:This paper outlines a constructivist framework for understanding the outcomes of the entrepreneurial process. The core thesis of the paper is that, taken alone, neither the personality of the entrepreneur nor the structural characteristics of the environment determine the outcome. Rather, it is argued that the outcome of the entrepreneurial process is emergent from a complex interaction between the entrepreneur, the environment, chance events and prior performance. The framework is illustrated with evidence from biographies of six entrepreneurs involved in successful processes. (link)

Chell, Elizabeth The Entrepreneurial Personality: A Few Ghosts Laid to Rest? International Small Business Journal, Vol. 3, No. 3, 43-54 (1985)
DOI: 10.1177/026624268500300303. Abstract: This paper considers critically three approaches to entrepreneurship; the psychodynamic, social development and trait models. It appears that the psychodynamic model relies on the stereotypic notion of the entrepreneur as a deviant; the social development model reduces to four stereotypes which are said to characterize the entrepreneur at different stages of life; and the trait approach is unable to identify reliably a trait which characterizes entrepreneurs and distinguishes them from other business persons. Other possible modification of the trait approach is to take into account the interaction of traits and situations as modifiers of behaviour. An alternative conceptualisation of entrepreneurship is put forward in which 'cognitive social learning variables' are substituted for traits, and Harr6's Situation-Act model is used as the basis for analysing how entrepreneurs relate to their business situation. Recent theoretical and empirical studies of entrepreneurship are used to provide the key concepts of person (entrepreneur) situations (business environment) fit. (link)

Abstract The usefulness of personality traits in the explanation and prediction of entrepreneurship is critically evaluated, and both contemporary theory and existing empirical findings are reviewed, emphasizing the need for conceptual clarity and methodological reform. Detailed recommendations for future research are outlined, and this critique is complemented by a detailed case study of a practical research design drawn from an ongoing project. Taken together, these provide a powerful illustration of how abstract principles can be used to inform research practices, and the underlying message emanating from this evolving body of knowledge can be used to enrich teaching materials and educational activities.
The five broad dimensions of personality are:

1. (1) Extroversion (E). People high in extroversion are outgoing, gregarious, optimistic and sociable.
2. (2) Neuroticism (N). Highly neurotic individuals are prone to mood swings, have little emotional stability, and are anxious and prone to depression.
3. (3) Agreeableness (A). Highly agreeable people are easy to get on with, and may be widely liked.
4. (4) Conscientiousness (C). Conscientious individuals prefer to conform with rules and regulations, and are reliable and hard-working.
5. (5) Openness to experience (O). People who are highly open to experience tend to be liberal and approach problems in new and innovative ways.


Littunen, Hannu (2000) Entrepreneurship and the characteristics of the entrepreneurial personality. International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour & Research 6(6), 295-310. Abstract Examines the characteristics of the entrepreneurial personality and the effects of changes in the entrepreneur’s personal relationships. According to the empirical findings, becoming an entrepreneur and acting as an entrepreneur are both aspects of the entrepreneur’s learning process, which in turn has an effect on the personality characteristics of the entrepreneur. The entrepreneur’s drive to solve problems (= mastery) had increased, and control by powerful others decreased since the start-up phase. Changes in the entrepreneur’s relations with others were also observed to have an effect on the entrepreneur’s personality characteristics. The empirical findings also show that as the number of co-operative partners decreased, control by powerful others also decreased, and that, since the start-up phase, entrepreneurs whose personal relations had increased also showed a clear increase in mastery.(link)
