Research & Background about Entrepreneurs and the EPT test.
The suggestion is that entrepreneurs have different characteristics that help them succeed in their tasks.
After Stefan Lindstrom’s (founder of this test) time in 2005 at Boston University – Entrepreneurial Institute, and around the Boston ecosystem, it was observations he made there and studies and research conducted with the Entrepreneurship Program at Boston University that was the starting point in his research. Later in the years of around 2007, Stefan came up with his first thoughts, and later on, the first embryo that there could be a sixth one. Previous international research had identified five different profiles.
According to the above and to following research, e.g., The swede whose research found the 6th entrepreneurial archetype (researchgate.net) entrepreneurial archetypes have characteristics that can be divided into six different archetypes or roles: The Starter, The Professional, The Serial, The Innovator, The Lifestyle, and the 6th one – The Workstyle entrepreneur. All Archetypes – Entrepreneur profile test

More research: Lindstrom talked 2018 at TEDx https://www.ted.com/talks/stefan_lindstrom_what_s_so_special_about_entrepreneurs
The talk is about the answer to the question: What makes an entrepreneur? based on studies and experience. Different types of entrepreneurs with different backgrounds and motivations, and with different impacts and results. Common characteristics of the different archetypes.
Lindstrom has also been invited as a keynote speaker to share his latest research on The International Conference on Thinking- 2009, 2011, 2013.
The conference is the world’s premier assembly to present ideas on a wide scope of topics. Speakers present talks on education, leadership, business, health & medicine, science and technology, the environment, and the humanities. The International Conference on Thinking is operated by a U.S. committee headed by David Perkins, professor of education at Harvard University.

He presents his ideas on how one can benefit from their experience in the business world and for individual development as well as personnel and organizational development.

Already during the late 90s, he participated as a lecturer and was an inspiration for the SAF’s (now Confederation of Swedish Enterprise) project “Start your own ”. The goal of that conference was to disseminate knowledge about entrepreneurship throughout Sweden. Lindstrom has also lectured at Stockholm University. He is currently a sought-after speaker on the management circuit in Sweden and around the world.

Later in the years of around 2007, Stefan came up with his first thoughts, and later on, the first embryo that there could be a sixth one.
It is this research – the 6th archetype The swede whose research found the 6th entrepreneurial archetype -(researchgate.net) that he had the privilege to launch at ICOT the international Conference on Thinking in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia in 2009. And that led to the world’s first Entrepreneur Profile Test that he developed together with licensed psychologist Hans-Olle Frummerin and was launched in late 2010. By doing the EntrepreneurProfileTest, you will find out which of the six entrepreneurial archetypes you are, or most closely match. EPT also measures – Response congruence. Not so many tests that are based on or partly based on self-estimates, sometimes called self-assessed – measures response congruence. EPT measures response congruence, and in %, which is rounded off in the results answers to the nearest five or ten numbers. ., 60%, 70%, 85%, etc. (info about your response congruence percentage results at the top of your test results, deeper information about congruence and response congruence available under Q&A as well in the Dictionary )
It is important to remember that the results of a behavioral analysis do not say anything about who you are.
