The psychological profile of successful entrepreneurs

Psychologist Aleks Srbinoski describes the making of a good entrepreneur at SmartCompany.

I’d suggest successful property investors share similar characteristics.

He describe entrepreneurs most likely to succeed as extroverted and gregarious, because being able to interact confidently with others is vital.

There isn’t just one type of person able to be successful at entrepreneurship or any other profession, Adonis says. As long as the person has the right attitude and is eager to learn, it’s possible to overcome any obstacles, he says.

He says research suggests a combination of traits is important to making an entrepreneur:

• Above average levels of resilience (emotional stability)

• Above average of openness (open to new ideas and experiences)

• Above average levels of assertiveness (extraversion)

• High levels of achievement striving (conscientiousness)

• High levels of self-discipline (conscientiousness)

• High levels of deliberation combined with above average action orientation

I would suggest it’s much the same for successful investors
