Entreprenurial orientation is individual behavior that needs to be developed to increase their competitiveness in developing vebtyre. It is asssumed that one of the factors that influence individual entreprenurial orientation is competitive traits within the person. So far have not found a study with a quantitative approach, about the relationship between competitive traits, and entreprenurial orientation. There are two competitive traits. namely hypercompetitive trait and personal development competitive trait. hypercompetitive trait is an indiscriminate need by individuals to compete and win, or avoid defeat. with any cost or any way to maintain or increase the feeling that he was worthym with an attendant orientation of manipulation, aggressiveness, exploitiation, and denigration of others on various situation. thus it is assumed to he negatively related toward entreprenurial orientation. Instead personal development competitive is a trait focusing primarily of the competition is not to win, but rather on using the competitive experience to facilitate personal development, thus it is assumed to be positively related toward entreprenurial orientation. the study aims to prove the relationship between both competitive traits and the entreprenurial orientation on university students. The results showed there's no: significant negative relationship between hypercompetitive trait wits entreprenurial orientation (r - -0 120. p = 0.319. p > 0,0051), and there is a significant positive relationship between personal devopment competitive trait with an entrepreneurial orientation - (r=0.27g.p = 0.619. p<0.05).
