The subject of birth order is such a fascinating one. Kevin Leman is the modern birth order expert. The oldest/only children are usually the more mature, ambitious, and intelligent ones because they interacted with adults earlier in their lives. The middle child is the overlooked and forgotten one in their families. They are not considered as individual but as someone's older/younger sibling. Well, the youngest- is just that- the pampered baby who gets away with murder! In your opinion, what is the favorite and most maligned of birth orders!
I'm the youngest and I disagree totally with each and everyone of the points.
But, its interesting to note that many families are the opposite -Hmm
Sounds like statistics from the 1950's when families were two parent families, with 2.5 kids, all living in the same household with the white picket fence, all a neat and tidy package. There are so many variables that form a child's personality, I find these generalizations of character to be more limiting for growth than anything.
Happy Holidays to you and yours..
I find that interesting and completely unrelated to me or my family. I am not an only child nor am I a middle child.
Then what birth order are you? By the way, Merry Christmas Cagsil!
Hey Gmwilliams, I certainly hope you have a great holiday season and be safe.
Birth order of my family is that I'm the second child of two. Therefore, I'm not the oldest nor am I the middle, nor am I an only child. I am the youngest, but I'm not compared to my other sibling, nor am I less intelligent than the older sibling. It's quite the opposite.
The precious baby. Now I gotcha! Heeee(laughing malnovently). Not to digress. I love people and their psychosociological makings and that is why I love HubPages so much. Again, Happy Felicitations!

If you are or have ever been a teacher, what is your birth order in your family?Sounds crazy that I'm asking, I know, but I'm wondering if most teachers who feel successful in their jobs are from a family with siblings. I have a feeling that only children, for example, prefer to work...

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...

Is it normal for someone to have a combination of two birth order personalities?For example, I am the youngest of five but there are 7, 8, 11, and 12 years between me and my older sibs.
