Abstract

Innovativeness is a useful trait in many walks of life. The aim of this paper is to investigate if gender and personality traits influence rating of self-perceived innovativeness. There are two versions of the dependent variable used - innovativeness in the eyes of others, and innovativeness in one's own opinion. Big Five Inventory-10 is used to measure personality traits. Findings are that conscientiousness influences self-perceived innovativeness in the eyes of others, and openness to experience influences self-perceived innovativeness in one's own opinion. Conscientiousness also influences the difference between the two innovativeness variables.
