Raj:

I guess the biggest skill/talent I would look for is the 'QA Mindset': a combination of the curiosity to keep poking at a piece of software (or any other system under test) to tease out new bugs, and the ability to do said poking in an analytical manner. A healthy dose of scepticism is also good. I think they've served me well in my career.

John.

Agree with John. Also should understand software design basics because some times the ever poking leaks out the system design flaw causing the bugs to come up in the first place.
