Many psychologists find the study of birth order in families to be extremely interesting, and therefore continue to do case studies on the topic. Over the years, it has been hard for psychologists to find consistent evidence proving that birth order really does have an effect on personality. However, according to the article "The Power of Birth Order" by TIME Magazine, research done in Norway and the Philippines have been showing progress in proving that there is a correlation between the two. In the study in Norway, birth order seems to have an effect on IQ and intelligence, showing that first borns generally have a higher overall IQ, about 3 points higher, than that of the next oldest sibling (TIME). In the studies done in the Philippines, scientists discovered that siblings who are born later on typically weigh less and are ask shorter in height (TIME). These are just some of the examples of the differences found between older and younger siblings which scientists are working on correlating with the order in which they were born. There are also the more well known correlations between birth order and personality such as the oldest siblings being smarter or more of a leader, while the younger siblings are more creative and comical. Personally, I can compare a lot of these findings to my own family and the different characteristics I have versus my other siblings. Being the youngest, I tend to relate to if not all, most of these findings associated with the youngest sibling in the family. Is it just coincidence that this happens or are scientists actually starting to find more and more correlations that can be repeated in studies to seem legitimate?
