A Review of the Evidence for Birth Order Differences in Anxiety and Affiliation in Stressful Situations.
Kushnir, T.
Social Behavior and Personality, v6 n2 p179-86 1978
Reviews literature on birth order. An important conclusion is that birth order differences in anxiety level and affiliation are not generalized phenomena. Consistent birth order differences in both variables are found only among females. Firstborns are not habitually more anxious than laterborns and are not generally more affiliative than laterborns.
