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 were extroverted, intuitive, thinking-judging, (ENTJ); introverted-sensing, thinking-judging (ISTJ); extraverted-sensing, feeling-judging (ESFJ) or extroverted-sensing, thinking-perceiving (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 result of this study has implications for higher education which entrepreneurship educators should not adopt, a "one style fits all" approach in the classroom.
Key words: Entrepreneurship education, cognitive styles, intentions, personality types, Myers-Brigs Type Indicator (MBTI).
