Abstract: Adolescence age is an important time to develop the entrepreneurial potential. One of the important predictors for determining the career as entrepreneurs when they become adults is the entrepreneurial orientation of adolescents. Adolescence closely related to leisure time. Leisure time will help teenagers determine their contribution to their social experience. This study aims to examine the differences of adolescent entrepreneurial orientation based on their leisure time. The number of sample included 182 students. The scale used was based on an entrepreneurial orientation scale consisting of 52 statement items with a reliability range of 0.762-0.832 and CITC values above 0.3. The results showed that there were significant differences between entrepreneurial orientation and leisure time (p lower than 0.05). Hand skills have had the highest average value compared to other hobbies. Hand skills can be identified with realistic personality according to Holland theory. Instead, the use of gadgets has the lowest average value. Use of gadgets can reduce the ability to empathize, the ability to express emotions correctly, effective emotional management, and emotional intelligence.
