The main objective of this study is
to describe, predict and understand the influence of the environment and personality
on the entrepreneurial intention of extra-curricular youths of Cameroon. Drawing inspiration from the planned behaviour theory of
Azen (1991) and the model of entrepreneurial event of Shapero and Sokol (1982), we
formulated three hypotheses aimed at explaining the entrepreneurial intention by the
attitude, social norms and by the perceived
control under the linear regression model.
We administered our questionnaire to 135
adherents and from our findings, it was revealed that there exist a significant influence
of attitudes, norms and control on the entrepreneurial intention. Amongst these three regressions, perceived social norms greatly
influences the entrepreneurial intention than
the attractiveness for the creation of enterprise and the perceived entrepreneurial capacity. As a vector of development, it is
therefore necessary to accompany these
youths to matérialise this potential in business creation.


The purpose of this study is to determine the link between the physical self-concept and the performances of learners. This is sociocognitive psychology. On the basis of the fact that most of the NIYS PSE student teachers, despite their established physical abilities, fail to perform well on rope climbing, we wondered whether there is a link between self-concept of NIYS PSE student teachers and their performance during learning to climb a rope. The physical self-concept is a representation of oneself that refers to a way of « seeing oneself », of conceiving oneself, as one sees oneself through one’s daily experiences and the comparisons one makes between oneself and others in the physical domain. We conducted this study at the NIYS in Yaoundé where we collected data from 198 subjects using a questionnaire. The data collected and the results obtained from the NIYS gymnastics teachers were analyzed using the Bravais Pearson correlation test (√). The results confirm all our research hypotheses at α = 0.01%. This suggests that our general hypothesis is confirmed. Thus, the physical self-concept of the NIYS PSE student teachers is strongly correlated with their performances in learning to climb a rope.
