We can’t forget to look at the impact of being an only child on personality development as well.
Parents place “all their eggs in one basket” with only children, so they may have a high level of academic expectation.
As they are so good on compromising, they often do so to the detriment of themselves which could create anxiety, depression and frustration. And, of course, last borns: Last borns have more leeway in life.
They often do not have strong expectations placed on them so they are more outgoing, charming, and are willing to take more risks.
They also balance one another out as the youngest can bring some light-heartedness to the relationship.
Two first borns can work if each individual works to respect the qualities of the other person. Additionally, each of you should engage in something outside the relationship that allows you to feel in control or that you can be a leader in.
A match-up of two last borns can also be problematic.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to determine how you might be able to get along with others by knowing where they fit in the family? Of course, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make it work if you fall into the incompatible category….lot’s of people do! The idea of opposites attracting definitely rings true here.
First borns like to care for others, be in control and are organized.
