The paper presents the attempt to perform comparative analysis of phraseological units with a structural component of the zoonymic code in the characterization of human qualities in the Yakut and Chinese languages. The paper analyzes the stereotypical images of animal characteristic of two countries with different geographic locations. The degree of similarity and difference in assessing the character of a person is of particular interest as well as the properties of his behavior, expressed metaphorically through the images of animals familiar to a certain national culture. Since, possessing linguistic and cultural differences, the speakers of the considered languages can attach different, sometimes diametrically opposite meanings to the same image. A comparative analysis of the idioms recorded in the language can help to reveal some culturally significant differences in the perception of one or another trait of human nature and the presentation of behavioral characteristics. The authors tried to consider the most common images for a given language and compare the anthropomorphic qualities attributed to this or that animal.
