Managers vs Entrepreneurs

I'm a Mac and I'm a PC guys from old Apple advert

A while back, I asked if you were a Looney Tunes person or a Disney person. (Clue: Disney people like rhyme, Looney Tunes people like rhythm.) Now I’m curious about managers vs entrepreneurs.

Both alike in dignity, as the saying goes, but with very different outlooks on life. Which one are you? 

Instructions: tick all the boxes that apply to you and then compare the total number of ticks in each column.
