Abstract: An individual's gender may influence their behavioral preferences as males exhibited a significantly higher risk taking, openness to change, autonomy, and achievement tendencies. Interestingly, older females seemed to possess lower risk taking, creativity, and autonomy than the younger cohort of women entrepreneurs, while age had no influence on personality attributes of male respondents. An entrepreneur's personality preferences were uninfluenced by whether an established business is earning revenue or designed as a profit or nonprofit venture.
