You have to be willing to work things out. Every day we meet problems and as a scientist it is my job to understand the problem and then find a solution. A good technical knowledge of your area is essential, in my case Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science. A willingness to learn is essential and it is really important to listen to people around you as they may have the answer to your problem or a piece of the problem. Most people in my job would have a degree in a Science disipline and/or a post graduate degree such as a Masters or Ph.D.

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.
