Based on the results of factor analysis, the first factor is interpersonal relations determining about 0.18 of the variance. The flexibility more than 0.16 and customer about 0.8 determine the variance of important factors matrix. Among the required factors, the knowledge and skill and belief principle each determine less than 0.2 of the variance.
