I don't know about good accountant, but to be a happy (or at least not miserable) accountant you probably need to be fond of puzzles. Not, like, mathematical puzzles, but ones where you kind of have to logic and intuit your way through something.
The math never really goes beyond arithmetic (time-value-of-money aside) in financial accounting and algebra in managerial accounting, but it does involves a kind of mathy way of looking at the world.
Go take a free accounting course online, like https://www.coursera.org/learn/wharton-accounting, and if you still like it once you finished the course, it may be for you! I went from teaching and translation to accounting, mostly on the strength of quite liking an intro accounting course I took while working.
