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.

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.
