Personality Differences by Gender

There were no personality differences by gender and no expectations of such differences. Individual autonomy and independence were paramount and guided Waorani behavior. Both genders are considered to be powerful and effective, and in control of their experiences and destinies (Robarchek & Robarchek, 1998). Males were not dominant over women, and adults were not dominant over children. The same pattern holds today, although the Waorani are not immune to the influence of gender discrimination in the wider Ecuadorian society with which they must interact. Gender pressures are also placed on the Waorani through the influence of Christian missionaries, whose gender behavior is guided by the Bible, and through increased interaction with lowland Quichua among whom women and children are more dominated by men.
