The following is a personality profile of Cynthia Rylant based on her work.
Cynthia Rylant is social, unpretentious and can be perceived as shortsighted.
She is outgoing, she makes friends easily and feel comfortable around other people. She is assertive as well: she tends to speak up and take charge of situations, and she is comfortable leading groups. But, Cynthia Rylant is also confident: she is hard to embarrass and is self-confident most of the time.

Considers tradition to guide a large part of what she does: she highly respects the groups she belongs to and follow their guidance. She is also relatively unconcerned with independence: she welcomes when others direct her activities for her.
