Abstract

Most documentation on entrepreneurship and its potency to the enhancement of sustainable development in the contemporary times have not given adequate consideration to the personality models that heighten desired entrepreneurship behaviour for the achievement of such development. Yet, personality models could be considered as defining factors to good entrepreneurship. This discourse therefore, addresses personality models and entrepreneurship as implication for sustainable development. Using the Big Five Personality Model, which describes essential traits that serves as the building block of personality, this discourse highlighted those models that could precipitate assuring entrepreneurship behaviour required for sustainable development. It argued strongly that for sustainable development to be achieved, credence must be given to these models believed to impact entrepreneurship to a greater extent. Thus, it recommended that above all traits, conscientiousness and openness to experience must be imbibed (though not silencing the slight influences of other traits whose possession in lower category also enhances entrepreneurship) for adequate entrepreneurship behaviour required for sustainable development.
