Abstracts
Based on existing questionnaires, and formal empirical results, a new Entrepreneurial Predisposition Questionnaire was constructed, the first of its kind in the Croatian language. The scales which were used along with approximately half of its items were the same as the ones used in the well-known General Enterprising Tendency Test (Caird, 88a) and Koh’s questionnaire (Koh, 1996.). These were - need for achievement, need for autonomy, ambiguity tolerance, innovativeness, risk taking, locus of control, and self-confidence. The preliminary version with 91 items was tested on students and based on item analysis results, 69 items were kept for further usage. The questionnaire was then used on pairs of entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs, corresponding in gender, age and education level. Independent samples of t-test differences between groups on average questionnaire results proved to be statistically significant, thus making an important contribution to the questionnaire’s construct validity. Point-biserial correlation between variables’ entrepreneurial experience (entrepreneur or non-entrepreneur) and average questionnaire result was also significant. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient shows high internal reliability. Factor analysis - principal component method with Oblimin rotation was also performed. 3 factors were chosen, interpreted as – “Risk acceptance and unconventionality”, “Achievement tendency” and “Self-confidence”. The group of entrepreneurs has significantly higher scores on each factor’s results.
