Accountant Traits and Abnormal Passion for the Tax Law?

Something different today - in light of the start of the academic year in a few days and I know that many readers of this blog are accountants. Someone shared this blog post with me - "10 Ways to Know You Were Born to Be an Accountant." I'm not convinced about (1) nothing really bores you. While you do have to have a high tolerance for repetition and fine details, being an accountant offers a wide range of places to work and with constant change in accounting and tax rules and businesses changing and growing, there is usually lots of new things to deal with. Sometimes students overlook #8 - but accountants do have to have strong soft skills.

Is anything missing? Is passion for the tax law abnormal?
