It is very important that deeper investigations are made to better understand the role of entrepreneurial personality and to properly characterize entrepreneurs. One central psychological aspect of entrepreneurship is a human's risk taking propensity. When Douglas N. Jackson (1976) published his well-known Jackson Personality inventory, one of his key dimensions was risk taking. After him many others, such as Brockhaus (1980, 1982), Masters & Meter (1988), and Ray (1986) have explicitly dealt with the issue of risk taking propensity.
