With the use of quantitative methods for data collection and analysis, the impacts of personality traits and social variables of the respondents on development of their entrepreneurial intentions were investigated The findings showed that the respondents' entrepreneurial intentions could be predicted using both their personality traits (innovativeness) and social variables (knowledge and experience, family upbringing).
