Personality Differences by Gender

Stereotypic Tarahumara female behavior is quiet, soft-spoken, modest, and shy, particularly with strangers, while males can be more outgoing and vocal. In reality, diverse personalities are expressed by both sexes. Children up until the age of 5 or 6 are allowed relatively free expression of their emotions, but as they get older girls and young women are more firmly socialized to avoid unrelated members of the opposite sex, to be soft-spoken in the presence of others, to be nurturing, strong, cooperative, and responsible, and to avoid conflict. Boys are socialized similarly, but are allowed more freedom of movement and a wider circle of social interaction, which increases as they mature into men. Older women and men, especially past child-rearing age, enjoy relaxation of the social norms and often become more outspoken and interact more freely with both sexes. Many of these stereotyped personalities break down during tesguinadas (drinking parties). It is culturally expected and accepted that, while drinking, both men and women more freely express their aggressions, resentments, jealousies, attractions, and affections.
