Birth Order Determines Your Personality? Maybe Not
Everything we know for sure is up for grabs. That seems to be the case these days. For every study, there's another that debunks the former. Here's one for ya.
According to Time.com, they've done a study to try to either prove or disprove the theory that first born kids are overachievers and the last born are splined. There's a new study by German researchers that says there's really not a lot of hard science to prove that.
Now they do say that older kids do score higher on the I.Q. tests, but personality descriptions don't really add up.
I guess there are 5 personality traits that they study - although the article doesn't really explain what they are. I guess more research has to be done on the reader's part as well, and I don't have the time, but do you believe that personality has something to do with when you are born?
I think it actually makes sense. For example, if you are first born you tend to have a higher IQ because, well, you are the first born and parents spend more time with you and your homework maybe? You would think that would be a no brainer (no pun intended)
At the end of the article it basically says that more research needs to be done. I think so too actually, don't you?
Do you think there is a link between personality and when you were born? Give me examples! Would love to know
