Abstract: This paper examines the proposition that bootlegger entrepreneurs can be identified by their creativity. This is done with the help of a standard psychological test. Bootleg researchers can be identified by applying the test because they are very creative people. With this test a firm might be able to discourage or encourage employment of potential candidates for its R&D department. Thus, a firm can indirectly control the number of bootleg innovations produced in the firm or simply avoid wasting time consuming management resources, as bootleg entrepreneurs can be difficult to manage at times. The result of this research adds new evidence to current literature.
