Abstract

This study aims to unpack the psychological and economic consequences when individuals work in an entrepreneurial occupation, which is highly autonomous, but do not have entrepreneurial traits. The empirical results indicated that neither autonomous tasks nor entrepreneurial traits non-significantly predicts the business income but negatively predicts psychological distress. The interaction effect suggests that while entrepreneurial traits may have a minimal effect on business growth, but it highly impact on individuals' psychological wellbeing. The findings seem to suggest that while everyone, regardless their traits, may start their own business, but those who might suffer with mental health are the one who has mismatch personality.
