Abstract


Creative Destructiorpambudy@yahoo.comn Theory of Joseph Schumpeter explains that entrepreneurship is one of constructive solutions in the real sector, which at the same time creates jobs and leads to an increase in welfare. Therefore, entrepreneurs must have a consistent personality in responding to different situations. The aims of this study were to determine the demographic characteristics of farmers and agribusiness characteristics of the sheep farming in Garut as well as to analyze the influence of personality traits on agribusiness entrepreneurship of the sheep farming in Garut. The study was designed as a field study using the survey method. The primary data were obtained from the results of questionnaires distributed to 251 sheep farmers with Likert scale scores. The data were analyzed using Structural Equation Model (SEM) through LISREL program at α0.05 and loading factor of ≥ 0:50. The results showed that personality traits of Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness affected the farmers’ entrepreneurship. The farmers who have an open personality and are agreeable tend to have a strong entrepreneurial character. The entrepreneurship of the farmers will be stronger if they do not follow the order and disobey the rules or dare to leave their habits and perform their job differently and bravely. Thus, the entrepreneurial characters of sheep farmers in Garut are influenced by their personality traits.
