There are many useful and valuable skills, but some of the main ones are: 1. Careful, neutral observation - you have to measure and see what is there rather than what you think might be there or what the hope does not exist. There are many ways in which a non-neutral observer can skew the data and results. 2. The meticulous attention to the details, especially the planning - the more effort you put into the design of an experiment and its execution, the better quality of the data that you can get and the stronger the conclusions that can be reached. 3. Clear and concise writing - you have to be able to describe the experiment and results in a clear, concise manners, either in your laboratory notebook or in a published article.
