Birth Order Debate Resolved?
Zajonc, R. B.
American Psychologist, v56 n6-7 p522-23 Jun-Jul 2001
Critiques Rodgers et al.'s June 2000 research on the relation between birth order and intelligence, which suggests that it is a methodological illusion. Explains how the intellectual environment and the teaching function (whereby older children tutor younger ones) contribute to the growth of intellectual maturity, the first negatively and the second positively, noting the influence of the age factor.
