Fundamental Determinants of Entrepreneurial Behaviour
According to Scase and Goffee (1980) the conventional thinking about how entrepreneurial ideas, intention and behaviour emanate in a society is so complex and individual that it lies beyond analysis. Being and becoming an entrepreneur was attributed to something almost inborn and inherited (Gibb & Ritchie, 1982). It was argued that some psychological characteristics exist that are shared by entrepreneurs (Brockhaus, 1982) which illustrate a main research objective. A major stream in academic entrepreneurship research has been focussed on determining psychological characteristics that are associated with entrepreneurs and factors that encourage them to start a business (Rauch & Frese, 2007; Scherer et al., 1989).
