The present study was aimed at describing the development of a moral entrepreneur scale. A 34 item Likert-type scale of the moral entrepreneur was constructed and shown to be free of socially desirable responses. Construct validity was evaluated by expert judges and, overall, was found to be high. The other validity source was that groups of individuals known to be particularly high in the moral entrepreneurial personality scored higher on the moral-entrepreneur scale than did an unselected sample. The final source of validity on the moral-entrepreneur scale involved peer evaluations. Empirically, the moral-entrepreneur scale was shown to correlate positively with emotional intelligence and locus of control. The scale also correlated negatively with Machiavellianism. Factor analysis of responses for the 3 samples revealed a 4-factor solution: creating awareness, resistance, anticipating, and mobilizing power.
