Having an interest in research, a questioning mind and good analytical skills definitely contribute toward someone being a good fit for Registered Tax Consultant. An interest in business (even if it doesn't stretch as far as poring over every column inch of the Financial Times on a daily basis) will also help drive your understanding of the issues you come across in work.

While numerical skills, problem solving and related abilities are of central importance in finding the answers to the questions you review at work, it's often overlooked that, to be really good at this job, you also have to have the ability to get the information across to your client (or your manager, or Revenue, etc). The ability to communicate in a clear, logical, uncluttered way in writing as well as face-to-face will make you a great fit for the job.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
