I read the sec ion in chapter 14 about birth order. I found this topic to be interesting. I grew up as the youngest child out of two children, however, I now have a kid sister, which places me as a middle child. There is so much different criteria on the characteristics of birth order. In the reading, it seems that birth order is important, however, I don't believe it is. I, myself, contain the characteristics of a first born, whereas that shouldn't be the case. Personally, I am a skeptic on psychology, however I did find that this article sparked my creative thinking. I think that perhaps birth order isn't as important, but rather the year/generation that one was born in.
