A study to assess the impact of birth order on human life
Author(s): Sidhharrth S Kumaar
Abstract: While this is merely a question of destiny and time, the psychologists say that our place in the birth order, be it firstborn, middle, last, or only, has a definite, sustainable impact. The birth order influences how we go about receiving our rightful portion of our parents' attention. This personality hypothesis has been supported by several research studies in the recent years. The fundamental clichés for each birth order are more than ever true: There is a forceful, predominant firstborn; the middle born, who's dissatisfied and wants to be desperately noticed; and the last-born who keeps getting away with everything that they do. Although these behavioral patterns—good and negative, strong and weak—are developed in adolescence, they tend to accompany us throughout adulthood, whether or not they are.
