I'm fasinated by how purpose driven entrepreneurs are, how much does it take to become an entrepreneur?
I love to influence people positively, sometimes i wonder if am doing enough. How would you know you have an entrepreneual spirit in you ?
Have an Answer?
I suppose it's akin to raising a child; in that you both love it and never stop doing it. If you find you work a "normal" job and can't seem to turn off the switch after hours; it might be an indicator that you have that "spirit" in you; as it's a pleasingly all encompassing venture.
From a psychology point of view entreprenurs do share certain personality types. The Myers Briggs personality test (test is used in the business world) would characterize entrepreneurs are ENTPs, ESTJs, ENTJs, INTJs. If you're not familiar with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), it measures four pairs of personality preferences: Introversion (I) versus Extraversion (E); Sensing (S) versus Intuiting (I); Thinking (T) versus Feeling (F); and Judging (J) versus Perceiving (P).
I tested as ENTJ and consider myself an entrepreneur. I like the stability of working in the corporate world (good money & insurance) but am always thinking of new ventures. At present I provide career counseling on Fiverr, I sell vintage clothing on Etsy, I sell photography on Fine Art and other side gigs. I hope that paints a picture of the entrepreneurial spirit.
