What Qualities Do I Need to Become a Patent Agent/Attorney?

Patent Law is the perfect field for many creative and talented individuals since it requires so many qualities in order to be successful. So aside from the right degree and the willingness to pass the patent bar exam, what does it take to become a patent agent or attorney?
