What qualities should an aspiring data scientist have?

Data scientist is not an easy profession to muster; it requires immense patience and perseverance, and more importantly, a knack of problem solving. In addition, an aspiring data scientist should also have the quality of exploration and most of the business problems may not be clearly stated; rather they emerge from the volume and velocity of data which gets accumulated through various business processes. Other than that, from a technical perspective, elementary knowledge on statistical models and a basic know-how of software products could be a worthy addition.
