    a personality and a half

    Hi

    I want to know what the phrase " a personality and a half " means,could anyone kindly help me? Thank you.

    Here is the context:

    Kathleen Knowling is the artist who first drew this to my attention. Kathleen is a painter and a subversive rug hooker, who –I believe–is currently 84 years young. To say that she is a personality and a half is an understatement. She is my kind of woman. Knowling pointed to the generation of artists behind her and commented on what a hard time they were having surviving financially.

    This quote is from this website page: http://gloriahickeycraftwriter.blogs...ng-artist.html

    When I tried to look up the meaning of this term " a personality and a half", I found this page and thought it is quite relevant to the context where I am reading and this term appears. Because what I am reading is kind of confidential, so I decided to use the aforementioned website page as the context for this inquiry.

    Thank you in advance for your kind help.

    A personality and a half would mean a large personality. I would expect her to be very enthusiastic and outgoing.
