PERSONALITY DIMENSIONS OF THE INNOVATIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Summary. The senior author's model of The Style of Creative Behavior was used to study personality determinants of the innovative entrepreneurship. Two groups of subjects, a group of highly effective entrepreneurs (experimental group) and a group of civil servants (control group) were tested by the aid of the following tests: I. Strzalecki's five factors „Creative Behaviour Questionnaire" - CBQ (l. Appreciation of Life, 2.
Strength of Ego, 3. Self-realization, 4. Flexibility of Cognitive Processes, 5. Internal Locus of Evaluation); II. Hermans' „Questionnaire of motivation"; III. Gliszczynska's „lnternal-External Locus of Control"; IV. Spielberger's „STAL State-Trait Anxiety Inventory"; and Guilford's „Ship Destination Test". Ali independent variables, except the STAI, significantly differentiated both groups. However, three variables of the CBQ (Strength of Ego, Self-realization, and Internal Locus of Evaluation) have the biggest impact in explaining the variance of the criterion - success in entrepreneurship. The multiple R of these three factors is. 63, and explains 35% of the total variance. The article concludes a discussion about the Creative and the efficient personality as necessary condition of an entrepreneurial activity.
