I think it's one's approach to science that truly makes a scientist. We (in my American university) try to teach the scientific method to our students, but some never really learn to think that way, although they can learn to say and do the things requireed to get a degree. Other students think like scientists with no training at all. Most children do naturally. The scientific method: formulate an hypothesis based on observation; test the hypothesis ; accept or reject the hypothesis on the basis of the test.
