An important thing for you to know is that a developer takes the approach to prove that his code works.

I QA person takes the approach that they will try everything they can to proved that they can break it.

    Just curious: Why do you want to move from development to testing?

    Anyway, in my experience, one of the most needed characteristics of a tester is creativity.

    Also, you will need some knowledge of testing methodologies and test automation tools.

    The question isn't actually appropriate here. It doesn't present a technical IT problem we can help solve. It's better suited for a few Google searches.
