I hope you don't mind if I pop in with a question:
do you believe all of the "birth order" theories are cancelled out when there's very large age gaps between siblings?
Pop, pop, pop in! I am so glad to have you stop by. Of course, when there are large gaps between each siblings of six years or more, then each child is considered to be the respective ONLY CHILD in the family.
I agree with gmwilliams answer and I have seen that in my youngest child who has 12 and 10 years difference with his siblings. Jim is more like an only child.
What an interesting question!
Because I'm the first born, I've had to carry the weight of the family responsibilities both when my father was alive (Greek-couldn't speak Eglish well) and when he died (I was 19 at the time). That experience has made me a very strong person.

I'm the youngest of six siblings from a very loving family. It has helped me in that I always knew that I was loved and so grew up with a strong sense of self-worth.
All of my life (until I got married that is) I had wanted an older brother. it was so tiring to have to be up front for everything. You were very lucky.
As I have said many times over, ANYONE who says that THEY love being part of a large to very large family, is often the YOUNGEST child. The youngest child in such families have no responsibility and the longest childhood of all the sibilngs!

My theory is that most people seem to like whatever place they've ended up with among their siblings. Most also do seem to have a few minor gripes about it. Without considering anything you've ever read in books about birth order, what's your own personal take on your own place in the...
