There is convincing evidence that a specific constellation of Big Five personality traits within the person relates to entrepreneurship. In this study, we explore regional differences in an entrepreneurial Big Five constellation. Applying a multidisciplinary perspective, we draw from (1) individual- level research on the entrepreneurial Big Five profile, (2) regional entrepreneurship research, and (3) psychological research on geographical variation of personality.
