That's a dangerous question. I think a big problem with many architects is that they're out of touch with development because they live at too high a level to consistently make optimal technical decisions, but usually don't hesitate to do so.

I actually went from developer to architect back to developer because I found the architecture work too technically unfulfilling. A question I'd ask that developer is "Why do you want to become an architect?"
Finally a couple of resources:
