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.

Linguistic 
The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.
