If most of your scores are 5's you have a very strong "entrepreneurial streak" and should strive for your goals.

If most of your scores are 4's and 5's with some 3's you can probably do well if you are planning to be self-employed.

If you scored mostly 3's and 2's, strongly consider whether you want to commit the time to starting your own business. You will need to work very hard to develop the skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur.

If you scored mostly 2's and 1's - it's not likely you'll be a successful entrepreneur without a GREAT DEAL of extra mentoring and help. BUT many people have achieved their dreams of self-employment even when they started out without all the necessary characteristics. Study, read and learn from people who have already been successful in business.
