    Default Birth Order and Introversion/ Extroversion

    Wonder if there is a correlation between birth order and introverted or extroverted traits. Feel free to discuss if your birth order has influenced you as an extrovert or an introvert.

    I think being younger than my ENFJ older brother has made me more introverted. He spoke for me when I was extremely little (or so I'm told), and would often get into loud arguments and discussions with my parents that I would be too scared to join, so I just listened. I don't think having a little sister really contributed though.

    I don't buy this. Sorry

    I am the oldest, brother in the middle and step sister youngest. As a child i was more extroverted than at present and my brother was quiet, now he is the life and soul of the party and hates spending time on his own (he needs company at all times, ESTP) and my sister (ESTJ) was a total introvert as a child and now is just as extroverted as my brother.

    My oldest son has always been an introvert and my younger kid has moments of both introversion and extroversion depending on his mood.

    I am the youngest of four. I was an obnoxious little shit when I was younger but I had the right to be. In everyone's face. Now I am an introvert.

    I don't think there necessarily is... because I think introversion and extraversion are traits we are simply born with having.

    I do think that being an only child made me more introverted though. I was left to my own devices most of the time since both of my parents worked. Lots of time to learn how to entertain myself for many years, and to learn how to adapt to the hermit lifestyle I have come to appreciate so much.

    I'm the youngest and always have been introverted according to my parents. so nothing in the enviroment made me that way, though my brother is very extroverted

    I don't know how accurate this poll is going to be. Most of the people on this forum are introverts, so all of the introverted options are naturally going to be higher.

    For what it's worth, I'm the youngest of two children. My sister and I are both very much extroverts.

    This is yet another thread searching for ridiculous and likely bogus correlation.

    Falcarius is a middle child and a introvert. All his sibling are probably introverts as well.

    If there is no correlation between the two variables, then the evidence presented in this thread will show it. Thus, proving the hypothesis null and void.
