—Entrepreneurship is very crucial for every
economy. While talking about Entrepreneurship, most of the
people mainly focus on various aspects of business but forget
about tendency towards entrepreneurial traits or
characteristics. Enterprising Tendency is one of the most
important parts of an Entrepreneurship. The aim of the paper
is to study tendency towards entrepreneurial characteristics of
entrepreneurs. In this paper, the comparative study of an
Enterprising Tendency with the help of General Enterprising
Tendency Test (GETT) and four cases in Gujarat, India was
presented. The GETT was conducted on four lead
entrepreneurs of the select cases. The result of the same are
listed in the paper. The tendency towards characteristics of the
entrepreneurs is also judged subjectively through analysis of
the cases. Hence, both objective and subjective analysis are
matched in the paper. The results show that there is
considerable matching between both. This paper would be
useful to understand importance and behavior of tendency
towards entrepreneurial characteristics which are required to
be a successful entrepreneur.
