Meghna Pothen, Dr. Milu Maria Anto


Abstract: Entrepreneurship is fast becoming a 21st century phenomenon. This present study was conducted to evaluate the achievement motivation, life satisfaction and self-efficacy among male and female government employees and entrepreneurs. Participants (N=100) were selected for the study using purposive sampling method consisting of government employees (N=50) and entrepreneurs (N=50) with equal number of men and women. Satisfaction with life scale (SWLS), General self-efficacy scale (GSE) and Achievement motive test (ACMT) were the major measures used in this study to collect data. Findings from the present study showed that urban residents had more life satisfaction and self-efficacy. The three variables were found to be highly correlated with one another. However no significant difference was found in the achievement motivation, life satisfaction and self-efficacy between entrepreneurs and government employees.
