Infographic: How to Become an Entrepreneur


The characteristics of entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs often have a business degree in a subject such as management or marketing, but that’s not always the case, and it’s not all they need to be successful. Psychology Today (PT) reported that entrepreneurs tend to have a specific personality. Using the “Big Five Dimensions,” PT found that they’re typically high in the following traits:

  • Openness to experience — a willingness to consider new ideas
  • Extraversion — the desire to be the center of attention and interact with others
  • Conscientiousness — a tendency to work hard and follow rules

Alternatively, entrepreneurs were found to be low in the following dimensions:

    • Agreeableness — a wish to be liked by others
    • Neuroticism — a general emotional instability often characterized by worrying
