Scientists are generally:1. Inquisitive - They ask who, what, where, when and why

2. Explorative - They employ the scientific approach in exploring a problem and design experiments to test their theories.

3. Persistent

4. Creative - To solve a problem, they often have to be creative in uncharted territory especially in Astronomy and physics.

5. Analytical - They observe what is happening and analyze the problem to come up with solutions.

Scientists differ from engineers in that scientists can work in the theoretical realm, while engineers are applied scientists in that they have to apply the principles of physics and math to solve daily problems. So they might work together as a team lead by the scientist to carry out an experiment for example.
