BDC - Entrepreneurial potential self-assessment

This questionnaire includes 50 statements, and will take about 10 minutes to complete. There are no right or wrong answers. Your honest opinion is what counts.  
For each statement, choose the number that best describes your opinion. Use the entire scale as much as possible, as always answering "2" or "3" will not allow you to fully benefit from this tool.
Once you have completed, your answers will be compiled, and you can evaluate your entrepreneurial traits, as concerns motivations, aptitudes and attitudes.
