Now for some entrepreneurial facts: It is well accepted by Scholars, business experts, and venture capitalists that entrepreneurs are not defined by grade point averages, personality types, or social economical surroundings. In fact, contrary to what has been previously thought, you don’t have to be a Type A, which is an overachieving workaholic, nor do you need to be an extrovert. Elana Fine, managing director of the University of Maryland says that “Type A’s don’t take the risks to be entrepreneurs,” adding that the same goes for straight-A students. “Very often it’s C students who become entrepreneurs.”

In fact, it has been discovered during a research study under the title “The Big Five Personality Dimensions and Entrepreneurial Status”, that entrepreneurs collectively have different personality traits than that of corporate managers. Entrepreneurs score much higher on traits such as openness, meaning curiosity and innovation as well as self-discipline and motivation. Best of all? Entrepreneurs score far, far lower on neuroticism which for you means that you are better equipped to manage and tolerate stress.
