Although the list above might not seem very long, it's actually only scratching the surface!

There's no end to the list of qualities that are needed to be a good researcher and, also, the role can vary depending on circumstances.

Often, a researcher's work will depend on the type of research being undertaken. Anything that helps a researcher to achieve his or her goal of coming up with the information needed can be described as a useful skill.

The field of research in question will often dictate the basic skills that someone will need to succeed. For example, scientific research will obviously require at least a rudimentary understanding of scientific processes and principles.

Because research is often published to fully expand on the conclusions that a researcher comes to, a certain level of written and oral skills is often a prerequisite of the job.
