siblings who are often competitive, manipulative, and into mindgames? I have noticed throughout my life that only children are more peaceful and considerate people. They are not bullies, neither engage in nor instigate fights and altercations like children with siblings. They are also not into pettiness as people who grew up in multichild families are. In other words, only children do not cause discord and static. They believe in living and letting live.

I agree. There are so many factors that contribute to a child's personality from genetics to parental care, school, health, religion, race, economic status it is not realistic to base a comparison of chidren just by whether they are only or not.
I have found only children to be the kindest and most cooperative of souls. As a child, the children who were the nicest and most peaceful were onlies. They did not fight nor played mindgames like children with siblings routinely did.
