The following is a personality profile of Ian Rankin based on his work.
Ian Rankin is social, generous and informal.
He is confident, he is hard to embarrass and is self-confident most of the time. He is assertive as well: he tends to speak up and take charge of situations, and he is comfortable leading groups. But, Ian Rankin is also laid-back: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life.
