Where do you fall in your sibling order and do you find truth in the stereotypes attached to order?

Just wondering, because I'm the youngest of three daughters, and fit the profile more so of the firstborn.

  • I am a middle child of two brothers and we all fit the stereotypes to a "T". My older brother is the independent overachiever, I am the relaxed one of the group, more go with the flow attitude. And my little brother is the baby. Enough said.

  • Well I am the middle child. BUT the only girl. Have a older and younger brother. So I do not know if any of those stereo types fit me.

  • I am the oldest of three and definitely fit the stereotype, as does my sister and brother. I find that we also best fit the stereotype when we are together, as if we place each other in these roles.

    I have a younger sister. same mom and dad
    I display much of the first born and also second born.
    Good book to read The Birth Order Book by Kevin Lehmen
