Abstract:This paper analyzes the effect of moving out of the parental place, to live on your own during study time, on individual innovative behavior. It seeks to contribute to current literature by searching for additional antecedents of individual innovation. Hypothesizing that those individuals who leave their parental home to live on their own are more innovative than those who stay at their parental home during their study time, a questionnaire has been made and send out to test for possible relationships. Furthermore, attention is paid to the question whether there is a difference in the level of innovativeness between those students who have lived in houses with shared facilities compared with students who have lived in private houses where they do not have to share facilities. The analysis showed conflicting relationships in comparison with the hypotheses. However, by comparing means and using general linear modelling these relationships are not strong, so there are no significant results found.
