I liked a variety of subjects and disliked many others - however what I discovered later was that my like/dislike had to do with the teachers of the subjects rather than the subjects themselves.
Persuasion and presentation skills, listening and being genuinely interested and passionate about your subject areas. A desire to help and a little humor goes a long way - however the most important skills are to treat everyone with the respect and dignity deserved.
