Advice to an aspiring Data Scientist

If you have something in your mind “I want to be a data scientist when I grow up.”

My advice to you.

Be curious,
Extremely argumentative,
And Judgmental.

Curiosity is absolutely must.

I am professional astrologer also. I know if you have good Mercury, it means you have curiosity and want to learn.

Argumentative and Judgmental help you in start. It doesn’t matter right or wrong.

Ability to take position is important after curiosity.

Data would helps in learning and in process you modify your assumptions and hypothesis and helps to lead in conclusion.

Next thing as a data scientist, you would need is some comfort and flexibility with analytics platforms.

Next is the ability to tell a story.

Because after your analysis you have to tell the story that you got from data.
