'How would you describe her personality?'

When we ask 'What is she like?', we are asking about her personality/character. 'She is tall' is not a good answer to this question because 'tall' is used to describe appearance.

Just to stop any confusion, take a look at these three questions which look similar, but have very different meanings:

What is she like? This question asks about personality and can be answered with:
'She is outgoing and talkative.'

What does she look like? This questions asks about appearance and can be answered:
'She is short, slim and she has big brown eyes.'

What does she like? This question asks about her tastes, likes and interests. It can be answered:
'She likes talking, reading and eating cheese.' 

Now let's get back to the original question,'What is she like?' Here is an A-Z of adjectives we can use to answer this question:

A- Active: she likes to play sport or do physical things.
B- Bright: she is intelligent.
C- Cunning: she uses her intelligence secretly/mysteriously to get what she wants.

N- Naughty: (negative): usually for children) her behaviour is bad.
O- Optimistic: she is a positive person and positive about the future.
