Test - Competency for entrepreneurship

Are you an active person?

An entrepreneur? A selfish, intolerant man who wants to get rich quickly. People think so just as much as they cannot see any difference between “entrepreneurship” and “business”. The test you have just taken concerns the quality called “entrepreneurship”. This does not concern the fact whether or not you are able to become a successful entrepreneur. We understand it in a much broader context: it is perceived as an inner force that makes people think and do things, i.e. take action. We can find active people in all professions and jobs. And by the way, those who want to get rich quickly can also be found but they are not successful. Successful entrepreneurship requires a high degree of reliability, mutual trust and co-operation. The surveys of successful entrepreneurs have shown that those who are successful are also more often than not ethically and socially very responsible people.
Your results do not express any scientific findings; however, they may help you to know yourself better. They should also make you think.
