Article Body:
Older sister, younger brother, or middle child are more than just labels
that people have in a family; psychologist say that birth order has an
effect on all aspects of a child’s personality.

First Born: First born children are born as natural leaders. They also
tend to be perfectionists, reliable and conscientious people. First born
children do not react well to surprises and can be aggressive, however
are often people pleasers. Children who are first born have a strong need
for approval by others. Examples of first born children include Oprah
Winfrey, Peter Jennings, Rush Limbaugh and over half of all U.S.A
presidents.

Only Child: Only children are similar to first born children. The
characteristics in an only child however are typically three fold. They
are even bigger perfectionists, are more responsible and tend to get
along better with older people than individuals there own age. Examples
of only children are Robin Williams, Natalie Portman, Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Frank Sinatra and Lauren Bacall.

Middle Child: The middle child is often the most difficult to stereotype.
They are almost always guaranteed to be the opposite of their older
sibling, but this can manifest in a variety of ways. Middle children
typically feel as though their older sibling stole the spotlight from
them, while their younger siblings could get away with murder. They tend
to be secretive, more withdrawn and not prone to talk about their
emotions. Since middle children feel as though they were overlook by
their family they grow stronger connections with peers and are excellent
people readers and peacemakers.

Last Born: The children who are born last tend to be outgoing, social
butterflies. They are also the most financially unstable of all the other
siblings since their primary interest is in having a good time. The
youngest children of the family are often very charming, but can also be
manipulative and spoiled. Examples of some babies of the family are Billy
Crystal, Goldie Hawn, Drew Carey, Jim Carey and Steve Martin.

While these are typically characteristics of birth order, there are some
exceptions such as a larger space between the children may allow for some
crossing over of characteristics or if the first born is a girl and the
next child is a boy he will have some first sibling characteristics since
he was the first male child in the family. Deaths, adoptions and blended
families can also have an effect on these characteristics.
