    The youngers in my family (both sides) tend to be withdrawn types. I think it is just coincidence, though. Established professionals even explicitly say there's no definitive link between birth order and type.

    I do think the theory that oldest siblings are often 6 stands as a guideline. There are obviously no hard and fast rules when it comes to birth order and type, but perhaps certain types are more likely in older or younger siblings (though no combination is impossible certainly). I can see type affected much more by circumstances, types of other family members etc.

    Just to add my sibling observations:
    Older brother - 6w7 So/Sp, 628
    Me - 4w5 Sx/Sp, 458
    *workaholic, physically absent Father.

    Eldest Aunt - 4w3?
    Middle Aunt - 7w6
    Mom - 2w3, Sp/So, 269
    *Parent death in childhood.

    Dad - 8w7 Sx/Sp
    Uncle - 9
    Aunt - 6
    *very meek single Mother household.

    I'm an only child. 7w6 so/sx (ENFP). My mom is 2w3 so/sp (ENFJ) and my dad is 5w6 sp/sx (ISTJ).

    Here's my family friends' birth order:

    1st born: 1w9 sp/so (ISTJ)
    2nd born: 4w3 so/sp (INFJ)
    3rd born: 7w6 sp/so (ESFP)
    4th born: too young to type, but the relationship he has with his parents (parenting) might produce 8w7
    7w6 - 2w3 - 8w7 sx/so

    Interesting idea. I'd go with the theory that first-borns are most likely to be ones or sixes, though I think "quality" of parenting would play a large part, whether or not the child's needs are being met by the parents etc on what type is developed by the child. My mum's family has a pretty stereotypical representation of this: the eldest daughter is a one, the middle daughter is a seven and the youngest is a nine, bringing more weight to the 'parents (and therefore their children)are more chill the more experienced they become' theory.

    I'm oldest and a 7w6 sx/sp. Also the only perceiver in my family. <- Not exactly the typical "responsible oldest", but i've always been the peaceful one. easy going, peacemaker type. i'm the weird one, the "free spirit" that nobody understands and is simultaneously praised and punished for being so. but always very affectionate to everyone.

    My middle sister is 6w7 sp/so ISFJ <- the "responsible one", also the most difficult as a child. lots of tantrums, refusal to do things, etc., but the most caregiver-y one of us all. natural born mom. has always been very fearful.

    Youngest is 9w8 sp/sx. She's ISTJ. <- she was overwhelmed by all the chaos i think. being the youngest, she very much wanted to just be left in peace, not dragged around too events and surrounded by conflict that was over her head. she's always just done her own thing, the only one of us able to fly under the radar and get away from family without it being a major issue. (i of course have 7-ish escapist desires that were looked on as my attempt to rebel agaisnt or abandon my family). she's chill and strong willed.

    I am the oldest and an enneagram 9 sp/sx. My younger sister is a 1w9 sp/so(ISTJ), my youngest sister is a 9w1 so/sx(ENFP) and my younger brother is a 9w8 sx/so(ENFP).

    My parents are both the second youngest in their respective families and are both 6w7's as well.(Father= ENFJ, Mother= ISFP)
