Treść
According to the person-environment fit model people are more inclined to choose particular careers paths over other depending on their individual characteristics. They are also more likely to be satisfied with a career path that matches their characteristics and less likely to experience negative consequences including strain. In previous research several characteristics of entrepreneurs which differentiate them from non-entrepreneurs have been identified. Some scholars assert that these characteristics can be analyzed from the person-environment fit perspective. One of them which has not received much attention so far is the level of competitiveness. The goal of the current paper is to address this gap by analyzing the relationship between the level of competitiveness and the strength of entrepreneurial intentions among men and women. The analysis of this relationship is important as previously other authors obtained results indicating that the fact that men are characterized by a higher level of competitiveness might be one of the reasons of the gender gap in entrepreneurship. Current research involved 414 business students as participants. Men were characterized by a higher level of competitiveness. However a statistically significant (and positive) relationship between the level of competitiveness and entrepreneurial intentions was found only among women and not among men.
