PERSONALITY DEPENDING ON BIRTH ORDER. ARE YOU TRUE TO THE TYPE?


Continuing with our posts on personality, here's one found on the net from Interesting-Facts.info. But we're including the main points below:

Are the birth order personality types true for you and the people you know? Are you a typical only child, firstborn or middle or youngest child? The theory that birth order affects personality has been around for centuries. It was first proposed by psychiatrist Alfred Adler (1870-1937), and some of it must be true... Here are the basic birth order personality types, according to Kevin Leman, PhD, author of The Birth Order Book: Why we are the way we are. Are they true for you?


THE FIRST-BORN CHILD
Firstborns are natural leaders. Taking the lead from their parents, they like taking charge and want everything to be just right. This may also mean they struggle to admit when they are wrong.
Typically reliable and conscientious, firstborns are often perfectionists who don’t like surprises. Although firstborns are usually aggressive and confident, many are also people pleasers with a strong need for approval from anyone in charge.
THE ONLY CHILD
According to Leman, only children are “Super Firstborns” or “firstborns in triplicate.” They share many of the same traits as firstborns and frequently shoulder parents’ high expectations. Thus, they tend to be even more responsible and even bigger perfectionists. They also tend to struggle more with criticism.
Only children are often confident, well spoken and tend to do well at school. They are also likely to use their imagination more than other children, and usually get along better with people older than themselves.
THE MIDDLE-BORN
Middle-born kids are the most difficult to pin down, because while they are guaranteed to be opposite of their older sibling, that difference can manifest in many ways. Middle kids will usually develop skills and interests different from those shared by the family, and prioritize friends and peer groups since they often feel they do not have a special place within the family.
Middle children often feel that they receive the least attention, which can make them insecure and secretive; however, it also makes them more independent, inventive and resourceful. They can usually read people well, and often act as mediators or peacemakers since their “middle” role allows them to see all sides of a situation.

THE LAST-BORN
The lastborn or “baby” of the family usually benefits most from the fact that by the time they come around, parents are more comfortable and experienced when it comes to the art of parenting.
Lastborns “shoulder less responsibility, so they tend to be more carefree, easygoing, fun-loving, affectionate and sociable, and they like to make people laugh,” says Leman.
He adds, however, that while lastborns may be charming, they have the potential to be manipulative, spoiled or babied to the point of helplessness. They are also the most financially irresponsible and can turn rebellious, with an “I’ll show them!” attitude, as they tend to view their elder siblings as faster, stronger, bigger and smarter.
