Abstract: 

The cornerstone of every movement towards growth and development in a system is the precise understanding of the existing conditions, proper realization of strengths and weaknesses, and subsequently devising well calculated plans to reform the current situation. The main purpose of the study is to investigate the fundamental characteristics of entrepreneurship (need for achievement, need for independence, tendency toward creativity, risk taking and drive and determination) in high school students in Northern Khorasan and presentation techniques to nurture these characteristics. This is an applied study and has employed the survey-descriptive method. The statistical population includes all the students in public and private schools in the town and villages studying in 1386-1387 academic year. The sampling was carried out through stratified method, which is in accord with the content. General entrepreneurship closed-ended questionnaire was used to gather data. To establish the validity and reliability of the questionnaire, Richardson’s test was employed, and some professors’ opinions in the field were sought.

The reliability coefficient of the questionnaire was estimated to be 0.85. The data analysis was done in two levels, descriptive statistics (Frequency distribution, median, relative frequency, percentile, etc.), and inferential statistics (t-test, ANOVA, etc.). The SPSS was used to do the analysis. Results showed that high school students in Northern Khorasan are not in good conditions in respect to the fundamental capabilities on entrepreneurship, and the four characteristics: need for achievement, need for independence, tendency towards creativity, and risk taking are lower than the average among the students, but drive and determination are close to the average.
