I think the whole theory of birth order deciding your destiny is crap. Look at Prince Charles lol

Birth order

I do think there is some truth to the birth order theory. I don't think it's consistant with every family but I do think that there are certain expectations for the oldest. The oldest takes these to heart and either accepts them or rebels them. I also feel that there is a jealousy between you and your younger siblings. You subconsciously think that you could have more time with your parents, if they weren't around. This harbors the feelings for sibling rivalry. When it comes to relationships, I'm not sure what works. If you find out let me know.

Good post qmyr - As an eldest child, I was always resentful that my younger siblings could get away with anything. I was told, "You're the oldest. You should know better"
