    Interesting stuff.

    This part got me though because I'm a big neurotic and I suffer from severe migraines, (albeit rare ones), and asthma.

    You've probably heard of this concept before. First born children are often described as "bossy" or "responsible," while last-born children are sometimes described as "irresponsible" and "impulsive." But how true are these common stereotypes?

    For decades, pop psychology books touted the effects of birth order on personality, but hard evidence on the phenomenon remained elusive until recently. A few recent empirical studies have found that such things as birth order and family size may indeed have an impact on personality. One study even found that birth order can influence your choices of friends and romantic partners; first-borns tend to associate with other first-borns, middle-borns with other middle-borns and last-borns with last-borns.
    Aw I wish there were more facts in this/links to the studies. As someone from a large family I've always been kinda interested in those birth order dynamics.

    I too find it interesting because I'm the 2nd born of two and I have traits of both people who are the youngest and traits of middle children.

    Yeah I'm 2 of 6 and definitely a middle-oldest hybrid.

    Interesting to see it all play out amongst my siblings, with their wide range of inherent personality traits/temperaments, but then also the whole birthorder influence as well.

    also majority of my friends have been people with strong extroverted and expressive personalities and they're usually either only children or the youngest but i had one friend my whole life that was 2nd born like me. and she had 2 younger brothers and an older brother. my best friend is the youngest boy of 4 ESFP very social needs to be center of attention and high maintence. and that's how most of my friends have been need to be center of attention and high maintence, and i'm more i want to be in the background and fairly low maintence. I think i'm like that because when i was little my brother was very high maintence and my mom would get so upset with him, that i just learn to stay in the background and not speak up about anything

    This has been a fucking weird weekend. Not restful at all...but I'm not sure if I'd change much.

    And I promised I'd have a Halloween avatar, so, here we go. One of several...
