Abstract: 

In recent years the topic of entrepreneurship has become a major focus in the social sciences, with renewed interest in the links between personality and entrepreneurship. Drawing on the theory of planned behavior, the role of motivational factors (i.e., attitudes toward entrepreneurship, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control) and entrepreneurial personality (Big Five profile) in shaping entrepreneurial intentions was investigated. Focusing on agricultural students’ entrepreneurial intentions, entrepreneurial personality as a distal variable in the TPB model was studied. According to a table developed by Bartlett et al., a sample of 300 undergraduate students was chosen through random stratified sampling method. Data was collected using a questionnaire survey. The results of structural equation modeling indicated that entrepreneurial intentions were predicted by attitude towards entrepreneurship and perceived behavioral control (P<0.01). Moreover, entrepreneurial personality profile was positively related to attitude towards entrepreneurship (P<0.05) and perceived behavioral control (P<0.01). Findings of structural equation modeling further revealed indirect effects via attitude towards entrepreneurship and perceived behavioral control (i.e., mediation effects). The results highlight the importance of personality approach in entrepreneurship research and support the idea that personality effects on entrepreneurial outcomes are mediated by more proximal factors such as perceived behavioral control.
