As can be seen in Figure 1, the BEPE measures quite accurately for the majority of the values ([THETA] between -3 and +2), with accuracy falling slightly from the value [THETA] = 2 onwards.
Table 4 shows the Pearson correlations between the eight specific dimensions of the BEPE and the OPERAS subscales.
Table 5 shows the Pearson correlations between the eight dimensions of the BEPE questionnaire and the three dimensions of the TMMS-24.
We calculated the multiple correlation between the eight traits assessed through the BEPE and Socioeconomic Status (R = .
Both the different scales designed to measure these dimensions, and the BEPE as a whole, show adequate psychometric properties.
As regards Emotional Intelligence (EI), the scores on the eight specific dimensions of the BEPE questionnaire tend to converge moderately with the three EI dimensions assessed (Clarity, Repair, Attention).
This finding highlights the need for objective measurement instruments to assess enterprising personality, such as the BEPE described in the present study, which could be of help to teachers and counsellors aiming to boost and train their students' entrepreneurial capacity.
The BEPE instrument for the reliable measurement of these dimensions was developed, and a range of validity evidence provided.
