    When you say someone has a gigantic personality, what does that imply ?

    Thanks!

    I cannot think of a great way to describe this meaning, but it is saying that the person is very loud and can draw attention quickly. It can be a good thing or a bad thing, but the idea is that the person is often the center of attention.

    Not really. It's from the book "Sleight of Mind". The author describes the magician James Randi as having a gigantic personality.

    Hmm. Then, I would describe it as Sharifa, #2. Or,
    // larger than life
    // hard to ignore/miss
