Studying psychology can reveal a lot of interesting facts about your life and personality based on your physical and emotional traits. Studies have found that if you bite your nails you may have the hidden need to be a perfectionist.
Another interesting study revealed that the youngest sibling may as well be the funniest one. Do you have one or more siblings? You are probably thinking about how different you are from each other, and that’s quite normal. But which one of you is the funniest or the more organized one? Psychologists have these answers for you, but be warned, as you may not like them at all.
Scientists say there’s bound to be a huge difference in the personality of the first-born child and the last one to join the family. New parents have a lot of anxiety over their inexperience with their first baby, whereas by the third or fourth they have a better understanding.
If you have a sibling, you know what we are talking about. Differences do exist. One way in which siblings can be different is in how they see themselves. According to a poll taken by YouGov, who studied the personalities in the youngest and oldest children in Britain, younger siblings see themselves as the funniest of the children. Older ones, on the other hand, believe themselves to be more successful and responsible.
Looking at the stats, the poll revealed some truths about siblings that you may see in your own family:
“Splitting out the first and last born siblings in British families with more than one child (86 per cent of the population), a clear divide in personality traits emerges. The most significant difference is in feeling the burden of responsibility – most (54 per cent) firstborns say they are more responsible than their siblings, compared to 31 per cent of last borns. Younger siblings, on the other hand, are more likely to say they are funnier (46 per cent compared to 36 per cent of elder siblings), more easy going and more relaxed.”
The website admits that age can have some effect on these results as well, which makes sense. But the way we were brought up also has an effect on us.
