There is no special talent required to do what I do and there are many capable of doing it. The first requirement is an ability to communicate with people, including listening skills. The second requirement is common sense. Unfortunately that can't be learned or purchased - you either have it or you don't. The third requirement is an interest in people.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
