Naturally talented meaning they can pick up the skills very fast and easily become good and not struggle with learning them for years. Half of the programmers I know have told me that coding takes some natural talent if you want to make it in the field while the other half told not at all and that it primarily takes serious dedication and time in practicing and understanding coding.

You will always be learning. Good problem solving ability is a prerequisite yeah but you don’t need to be some whiz kid0
Programming and coding are like every other skill - takes time, practice, and effort.0

Other: enthusiasm for it. Forcing a computer to do what you want, while it's just doing what you tell it to do is a complex challenge. I enjoy it.
I myself enjoy and have enthusiam for programming but often times, University colleges and their ridiculously short deadlines (to where barely have enough time to actually learn anything) and the fact that college degrees are grossly-overvalued by tech companies, often harms my enthusiasm.
I found my degree course added a lot to my understanding of computers and a friend of mine from there was recently telling about using a technique we learned back then (35 years ago) in a new satellite tracking system. But I'd already been programming since I was 14 (which may sound late, but I only just missed learning on a 11cps teletype), and I learned a lot more in the first few years of working as a professional.
