Title

Perception of creative identities by managers and non-managers. Does a manager see more?


Abstract

The research on the perception of managers, leaders, entrepreneurs, creators, and artists by individuals with and without manage-rial identity brings significant conclusions for understanding the way of thinking of managers, their inner characteristics, and the stimuli of their decisions. For this purpose, a global quantitative examination (n = 160) was designed and undertaken. The research exposed that indi-viduals with and without managerial identity perceive managers, leaders, entrepreneurs, creators, and artists statistically similar (confirm-ing hypotheses with the chi-square test of independence devoted to small samples without a normal distribution; p < 0.001). The supple-mental qualitative analysis of the variances of the 50 features of investigated identities revealed that managers and nonmanagers see these elements differently in some areas. These discrepancies were analysed, and the most important, the least important, and the most equally perceived features were portrayed. The results were discussed with the literature, confirming most other researchers’ views and revealing some contradictions. The practical research outcomes may be used to understand the qualities of a manager and the perception of explored identities by individuals, groups (with certain underlining of business organizations), and societies governed by persons with and without entrepreneurial factors.
