General Enterprise Tendency Test

The General Enterprise Tendency (GET) test (version 2) provides you with the opportunity to reflect on whether you have an entrepreneurial character. It’s a 54-question instrument that measures your personal character traits in the five dimensions of entrepreneurial character. The original test was developed by Sally Caird and Cliff Johnson at Durham University Business School in 1987—88 and has subsequently been developed into an online resource by Sally Caird.

The test has been designed to bring together and measure a number of personal 'tendencies' commonly associated with the enterprising person. These include:
  • need for achievement;
  • need for autonomy;
  • creative tendency;
  • risk taking;
  • and drive and determination.
