What skills make a Designer?

Whilst I am on exchange to Delft University in the Netherlands, I have to write regular reports back home showing my aims I want to accomplish whilst here and how I intend to do them. These will all form my Personal Development Portfolio at the end of the year. However to begin with I wanted to outline the key aspects an Industrial Designer should have. This is what I did, please leave your thoughts and comments below. It would be great to hear if I missed anything out. And if you would like a copy as a poster, just get in contact above.
