    Middle children traits verses last born traits are much more similar than traits found in first born.

    Middle born and youngest will tend not to be leaders, nor are they likely to be as intuitive as the first born.

    Middle children tend to be more placid, cunning and easy going, as their early years entailed negotiating their lower position with the eldest child. Middle children tend to be followers rather than leaders because they take the lead from the more experienced child.

    Youngest of the siblings have the  advantage of leaning on older siblings for direction and figuring things out. Hence, they tend not to be leaders. They will, however, tend to be more loving and understanding because they would have received more loving and understanding from their brothers, sisters and parents.

    The first born child will be given more attention and instruction in the early years. The 1st born will carry these experiences and pass to the next siblings born. Resulting in a tendency  to be a leader. First born often have better leaning skills caused by having to figure issues out on their own.

    One thing they would often have in common is seeking to live up to their oldest sibling's example. They tend to be a follower, more than a leader.
