Abstract

This chapter measures optimism in terms of success factors and a lack of success factors. The purpose of this chapter is to study the personality and optimism level of women employees and women entrepreneurs in the circular economy. Responses from 121 women employees from five employment sectors and 103 women entrepreneurs from five different sectors were surveyed for the chapter. Results indicated there was a significant difference among women entrepreneurs and women employees in terms of group directedness, compliance, and self-confidence. The results of the chapter will have both theoretical and practical implications for the long-standing quest to discover the similarities and differences between women's entrepreneurial personality and women employees. The chapter will contribute to the entrepreneurship literature by testing the influence of personality traits on the optimism level of the entrepreneur and comparing the same with the employees.
