This study examined the relationships between students' personality styles and their intentions to become an entrepreneur after completing a course in entrepreneurship education. Results indicated that the majority of the students in the class were ENTJ, ISTJ, ESFJ, or ESTP. The students in this study had moderate intention in a new business start-up. The researchers found that students with extraversion and sensing personality types had higher level of entrepreneurial intentions than students with introversion and intuitive styles. The results of this study have implications for higher education which entrepreneurship educators should not adopt a “one style fits all” approach in the classroom. Clearly, the evidence indicated that various personality styles were evident in the classes, and thus one could suppose that various personality styles are evident in every college classroom.
