    I think the best starting place is to tale a course or two at the university level and see if it interests you. There are different areas of psychology, so the required character traits and interpersonal style might be different for different areas.

    What I look for in clinical psychology students is genuine empathy and interest in other people, the ability to, as Adler said, "see with the eyes of another, hear with the ears of another, feel with the heart of another". If you lack that, you'll probably not make a very good clinician. If you have those attributes, and you can learn the ability to compartmentalize sufficiently to protect yourself emotionally so you're not overwhelmed by the client's pain, the rest is really just gaining knowledge, information, and experience and acquring specific techniques and skills.
