MBTI has being in personality type research and practice for nearly 70 years.
The analysis report includes the following three parts: personality type analysis, career development analysis and work environment analysis.
1. Personality type analysis
MBTI personality theory
PERSONALITY is derived from the Latin Persona, also known as individuality. Psychologically, personality refers to the nature of the behavioral responses acting by a person under certain circumstances. Namely, it’s a person’s unique acting behavior and responses in living, working, ways of thinking decision-making and etc. There are many kinds of personality theories in the world, whereas MBTI theory is the most popular and widely used personality assessment by individuals and organizations.
MBTI personality types are divided into four separated categories, with each category composed of two opposite poles, a total of eight poles as follows:
* Where we focus our attention————- Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I)
* The way we take in information————- Sensing (S) or iNtuition (N)
* The way we make decisions ————-Thinking (T) or Feeling (F)
* How we deal with the outer world————- Judging (J) or Perceiving (P)
According to the above four categories, each person has his own inherent tendency or orientation, that is, the category divided into two areas by a centerline, the person falls into one area rather than the other, we call it “preferences.” For example: If you fall into Extroversion, then you have “Extroversion preferences”; the opposite is “Introversion preferences”.
In real life, the nature of your acting and behavior ways fall into both poles of a category, but one is more frequently applied and you feel more natural and comfortable with it. Just like people using their hands, some people are left-hander, some are right-hander. Similarly, the most comfortable and naturally used ways are your preference. Combining the four preferences, it comes out your personality type, which reflects the nature and features of your psychological processes and behavioral characteristics.
Combining preferences in four categories, we can get a total of 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 16 personality types, including performer, champion and etc.
Your test score shows your type is INFP (Healer type)

They appreciate people who understand their values.
Healers are creative, characterized, curious, open-minded and tolerant. Take pleasure in exploring possibilities, pursue their dreams and vision.

3. Work environment analysis

Some people are born resolute and active. They like group living, usually being focused in social interaction circle and likely to finish their work in the shortest time. While there are some other people who is in the totally opposite situation. They are conservative, have little interaction with others and have only a few close friends. They seldom become eminent and unwilling to contact with ambitious persons.
Similarly, organizations are different from one to the other. Corporate cultures of some organizations are featured aggressive, fast-paced and results oriented. Meetings and communications are considered to be a part of the job.
While some other organizations are comparatively more conservative and independent. They operate behind closed doors. Initiative and ambitious qualities are not recognized or admired by the organizations.

Organization structure and focus-on-detail

Some people are very prudent, systematic planning and detailed-focus in work. While other people prefers to work in a casual environment, having no regulated planning or concern on the final result of the work.
Accordingly, a number of organizations / companies want precisian, well-organized and detail-focused employees. This corporate culture is characterized by mature working procedure and systematic programming. The organizations / companies do not take the “80-20” rule, but emphasize the efforts meant to optimize work accomplishment. A variety of industries possess this kind of corporate culture, especially in fields of science and engineering, or management level of some other fields (for example: “just in time” inventory management in factories, airport transportation, etc.).
Meanwhile there are some other organizations / companies that are less concerned about the minutiae, they also put less emphasis on division of labor and working procedures. They incline to do things following their feelings and the interaction or influence between people. This kind of corporate culture requires quick response, even though with obtained limited information (for example, trading). Innovation is emphasized (for example, advertising companies).

[Organization’s openness and creativeness]
Born with rich imagination and curiosity, some people are always receptive to new ideas and methods, while others are practical and see things in the concrete. Similarly, some organizations/ companies advocate the culture to keep updating the ways and methods. This kind of culture believes that innovation comes from the accumulated mistakes. They dare to take risks, but often have no specific plan to accomplish their goals. Opposite to this, other organizations / companies prefer to spend more time and energy on research before they make decisions. No mistake is the top target.

This type of individuals usually has a very strong altruism. They think the social value of their products and services are of the utmost importance. While others, in contrary, enjoy competition and see it as a nature and virtue of humans.
Accordingly, some corporate cultures emphasize cooperation, care about each other between people, and believe that human nature is kind. They require inside staff to act unanimously to avoid internal conflict and competition. On the contrary, other cultures advocate competitiveness, encourage opinions and proposals which benefit business operation.
