    This is so true. Many people with siblings do seem to be more immature because they are CONSTANTLY surrounded by children. They are more childish because they grew up in a child centered environment in contrast to onlies who are in adult milieu.

    This is so true. I am too an only child. I enjoy activities such as reading, writing, and sketching. That is the reason why only children are more intelligent than children with siblings. We tend to indulge in the higher type of activities.

    Most only children find same ages peers as noisome and quite immature. In fact, the average only child find children to be less intellectually developed than they are. This is a result of being in an adult environment-they mature quicker!

    I am very much a loner too. It has always been beyond me why people need so much social interaction. I feel lonlier in a crowd than I do by myself because I am so different from everyone else.
