The following is a personality profile of Susan Orlean based on her work.
Susan Orlean is guarded and inner-directed.
She is empathetic, she feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. She is independent as well: she has a strong desire to have time to herself. But, Susan Orlean is also intermittent: she has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.
More than most people, her choices are driven by a desire for discovery.
