    Does it exist? Do you feel the birth order of you and your siblings has impacted your personality?

    My friend is the oldest of 3 brothers and I'm not kidding the middle brother such an atypical Middle child, with the old syndrome and everything. The other two are really academic and well mannered he fancies himself as straight out of the hood. Smokes drinks drugs and gets into lots of trouble. Lols.

    I am 3rd child of 6 I guess I am a middle child, but I suppose I am the most independent out of all my siblings.
    I don't expect to be praised for anything tbh.

    From Urban Dictionary:
    Middle children will sometimes...
    -go with the flow
    -work as little as possible
    -be less parent-dependent then their siblings
    -become the 'loner' of the family, not participate in family events unless told to.
    -play the peacemaker
    -be more likely to go to a friend for advice than a parent
    -be very creative


    Yep that is me....

    I'm eldest and although it reaps its rewards it comes at a cost as i'm the first to do everything. Like build a good reputation for me and my brothers whilst at the same school etc.

    Being one of 5 siblings, I can definitely say it's true.

    it does exist in the formative years due to lack of attention compared to elder child and baby of the family, which can have a significant impact on one's confidence, but the residual effect of it in adulthood is largely down to said middle child's victim mentality rather than the circumstances of the order of their birth

    I'm a middle child. I used to have it when I was younger but now I don't really care. Plus, I get away with more because I'm the only girl

    Mainly noticed it when I was younger, my older brother was the year above me in school and we were even in the same class at one point which made it even more annoying. Because he was the eldest everything was the first for him, but not as cool if I did it lol. I was by far the most difficult growing up out of me and my brothers, my parents had a box load of letters/phone calls/emails from school about me but 0 about my brothers, funnily though I was the one with the most freedom

    Out of us 3, my sister is the middle child but there's also a very big age gap between me and them, almost 20 years and between them only 2 years :mmm: I feel like the 1st was born strongest, 2nd is strong and a bit soft whereas the 3rd (me) is the softest in terms of personality :laugh: Can't blame, 1st has father's personality, the rest have mother's :gah:
