That was an interesting question. I cannot speak for every architect, but could give you and idea of how I landed up being an architect. Hope it gives you a little idea of what you are looking for.

In high school, I was very much interested in Mathematics, Geometry, Physics and Painting. I liked some aspects of each subject. But the coldness of numbers in Mathematics could not hold my interest for long, as I went to college. In college I studied Physics. The thing that attracted me in Physics was the abstract concepts of the laws and the way things worked and held together. I was not much interested in the formulae and derivations aspect. I realized that abstract knowledge was what interested me. But being an artist and painter, I also knew the joy of creating and applying techniques. Finally I ended up being an Architect. Architecture combines the abstract knowledge and the techniques of creation.
