THE IMPACT OF BIRTH ORDER ON PERSONALITY

Abstract
Personality can be altered by many factors within an individual, some of which are
uncontrollable, while others are inflicted voluntarily. Birth order is arguably the strongest
involuntary factors that impact on an individual’s personality development. The position of a
person in a family in relation to his/her siblings has been identified as a significant factor
influencing behavior and emotions among individuals. Whether a person is the first born, second
born, last born or single child in the family, is quite important in understanding and explaining
individual behavior. Each birth position of individuals in a family has been associated with some
personality traits that develop from childhood and may be carried to adulthood or later stages in
life. As for parents understanding the effects of birth order on personality is important in
understanding the challenges that children in various birth positions face and therefore applying
the appropriate parenting skills to reduce the negatives and reinforce the positive associated with
each family position.

THE IMPACT OF BIRTH ORDER ON PERSONALITY

Introduction
Birth order is among the most powerful factors that significantly impact on an
individual’s behavioral, emotional and personality development. Birth order refers to the position
that a person holds in the family, according to the time he or she was born. Every individual has
his or her position in the family in relation to the siblings. For example, one may be the
eldest/firstborn, the middle/second born or the youngest/last born in the family. Although it is by
fate that individuals are born in different positions, there are different emotional and behavioral
experiences that are unique to each position, and that impact on personality development. There
are various benefits and challenges associated with each birth position and therefore contribute to
the behavior and emotions of a person.
Individuals personality is shaped by their past experiences, especially the main benefits
formed during early childhood development. These past experiences trigger the development of
specific needs which people unconsciously work to fulfill throughout their life as adults (Rohrer,
Egloff & Schmukle, 2015). Birth order largely influences the kind of key benefits that
individuals enjoy and acquire, thus determining the type of personality they develop. The impact
of birth order on personality is best visible from the perspective of a family with three siblings;
the firstborn, the second born and the last born.
First Born/Eldest Child
The firstborn acquires undivided attention; love and care from her parents for some time
and repeatedly benefit from this experience emotionally. He/she enjoys the all the attention of
the parents before a younger sibling is born. At this period, the individual emerges with a feeling
of love and a sense of self-confidence and security (Ernst & Angst, 2012). Responsibility is tied
