Personality Differences by Gender

Sakha men and women are both socialized to control their emotions and keep their feelings to themselves even about their most intimate relations. There are also differences between men and women's Sang or character, which are based in the differing domestic gender roles. Men come and go from the household, fulfilling tasks related to procuring necessary subsistence resources, and maintain a business-like working character. Men tend to be hardened to the extent that they must slaughter domestic stock and wild game. Women run the inside household and maintain a softer, calmer, mediating character in order to keep the household running smoothly.

Sakha are also taught to value certain character traits in the opposite sex, summed up in the Sakha saying, "Er kihi kharakhynan subuluur, jakhtar tylynan oiunan subuluur," literally meaning, "Men like women for their eyes [according to how attractive they are and how competent they are in domestic duties] and women like men for their words and intelligence."
