Describe two traits of a good scientist
um okay I have the same question for one of my science projects and what I have is that a trait of a scientist depends on the scientist himself or herself, you could just list a few things that the scientist you want to know about has accomplished for example, mendeleev,dimitri, I have periodic table,elements and russian chemist, and theories. because all of these things have to do wit him
Certainly one trait required is the desire to do your own homework and not ask for answers on the Internet. A successful scientist needs to be interested in both finding the answer and also the journey to discovering that answer.
An unsuccessful scientist would fake data, not be rigourous in their methodology and take shortcuts, such as asking homework questions on the Internet.
Intelligence - More so than ever, with all work already done scientists at the forefront have to work on ever more complex problems
Objectivity - You have to be looking to prove whatever you're investigating beyond a doubt, even if that means proving your earlier work wrong. It's got to be about someone getting the right answer in the end, not always being right yourself.
1.a scientist must be curious about the world
2.a scientist is logical and systematic
3.a scientist is open-minded
4.a scientist is intellectually honest
5.a scientist is hardworking
6.a scientist does not jump into conclusion
To have a thirst for the truth, even when it contradicts conventional thinking; may be described as curiosity, but integrity is involved, too. They don't so much try to prove themselves right, but to prove themselves wrong.
Anybody could be a scientist but, the trait which requires in order to become a good scientist is the ability to do good things and new discoveries which is beneficial to the society.
One good trait of a scientist is to learn and discover; to truly understand what it is they are learning of, as opposed to learning by rote.
1) Having a vivid imagination
2) Not being afraid to challenge existing theories and explainations of phenomena
I think both are pretty self explanatory.
