A business group I'm in had everyone take a version of Myers Briggs. Interesting how the business owners had the same 5 personality types identified by MB to be more likely entrepreneurs.

Business Insider posted this article which explains the personality types and sums it up:

Any person could be a good material for a successful entrepreneur regardless of their education, IQ, look and background.

I suggest watching the movie Forrest Gump to understand this.

The main characteristic I've observed with all successful entrepreneurs is they all have a "definiteness of purpose," and a strong "reason why" they are doing what they're doing.

When you start anything worthwhile, you are going to run into obstacles. The obstacles could be things, situations, or people. That's when a lot of people decide it's too hard, or not worth it, and they give up.

But with a definiteness of purpose, and a strong reason why, obstacles are no longer barriers. Instead they become merely inconveniences or challenges that I need to moved beyond, so I can continue moving forward.

Entrepreneurship is not for the faint-hearted. You have to be strong or at least learn to be strong enough to tackle challenges, look past mistakes, and learn from experiences.

You don't need to be smart, you just need to have the drive to succeed and you need to believe you can do whatever it is you set your heart to. Of course, you won't be able to do it on your own so it's very important that you delegate what you can when you can.

I think 3 key things that come into play are Risk, Never say die attitude and obviously you need some form of creativity.

I would also advise that if you want to be successful then you must enjoy what you are doing and stay positive through the rough times!
