Well I am not an architect so take this for what it is worth.
> how a architect differ from system analyst?
There can be lots of overlapping in job duties, and different companies and have different names for the same jobs. I think a system analyst is looking at world from a business view point, while an architect is looking at it from a computer view point.
> is interpersonal skill, leadership, etc.. a must for architect?
These skills will help you in any job, in any company. I know architects who are not managers, they don't have anyone working for them. So is that what you mean?
To be an architect you need to be able to see the 'big picture'. Understand how all the different parts of the system work together.

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.
