I'm the youngest of three and the only girl.

Last-Borns

Positives: Last-borns are the world's cheerleaders. You have strong people skills and love to entertain and talk to others. You make friends easily and immediately make others feel at home. You're an extrovert, energised by the presence of other people and you're probably not afraid to take risks.

Negatives: Last-borns tend to get bored quickly. They have a strong fear of rejection and a short attention span. When the fun stops, they've had enough and want to check out. To some extent they're self-centred. They may harbour unrealistic expectations of finding a relationship that is always fun - and of course, such relationships simply do not last.

I am the first of 6 kids. I this is so true about me but I am not intimidating and I don't push too hard probably a little on the opposite of that. but most of the rest sounds just like me.
First-borns

Positives: They are natural leaders and often high achievers. The majority of politicians, spokespersons and managing directors are first-borns. They frequently live with a sense of entitlement and even superiority. They often come in two flavours: compliant nurturers/caregivers or aggressive movers and shakers.


Both are in control; they just use different methods. As a rule, first-borns are picky, precise people - they pay attention to detail - tend to be punctual, organised, and competent. They want to see things done right the first time. They don't like surprises.


Negatives: They are often moody and occasionally lack sensitivity. They can be intimidating, particularly by pushing people too hard or refusing to take no for an answer.


Sometimes they can be a bit 'know-it-all', and often they are poor at delegating - largely because they don't trust other people as much as they trust themselves. They also tend to be bossy, perfectionists and overly-conscientious.

I have heard about birth order before but being the last born of two, I am afraid it doesn't discribe me at all.


I am more of an introvert with bad people skills. - not much of a cheerleader. I sit quietly and observe. Although it is easy for me to talk to people I just met, it is harder for me to commit to a friendship. I don't bore easily- I am self entertaining.

That sounds like me... least the positive side does.
