Jon’s Answer

* Mechanical aptitude (i.e. working with your hands and tools).
* Basic algebra. Beyond being just an installer it will help to be able to calculate power draw to size wiring.
* Some work locations aren't heated/air conditioned or are outdoors, or can be rather grimy. So a willingness to work in all elements, get dirty, and be strong enough to lift/move heavy objects, etc.
* I always found being curious about how things worked to be very important/helpful. While doing new installation work, less so, doing maintenance or old work it was very important. I was always taking things apart. And not necessarily getting them back together properly.

* I know/hope your reference to getting shocked was a joke. However the goal and being a good electrician is to work safely and pay attention to detail. If your not careful as to what you brush up against or hooking up wires incorrectly, that can cause injury or damage equipment. Both of which a future employer would not want you joking about.
