Your sibling relationships says a lot about your relationships with others. Here are a few sibling facts, according to the book, “The Sibling Effect: What the Bonds of Brothers and Sisters Reveal About Us.”

Here are brief descriptions of the main “players” in families:

1. Oldest

Firstborns often model parents’ behavior. They like taking charge and have oodles of confidence. Adults take them seriously and that boosts their confidence. When parents gush over every firstborn “first,” it motivates oldest children to achieve. They can easily become perfectionists. They also may have trouble admitting when they’re wrong.

2. Middle

The second-born will seek out a role that’s completely the opposite of the first born. They are also negotiators, remain agreeable, more relaxed attitude and compromising. They handle disappointment well and have realistic expectations. They are also the least likely to be spoiled and tend to be the most independent. They will go along with most people but often feel left out and neglected.

3. Youngest

Parents tend to let things slide once the last child comes along. Last borns usually do get away with more than their siblings do. They shoulder less responsibility, so they’re more likely to be carefree, easygoing, fun-loving, affectionate, sociable and funny.
Last borns will often become more rebellious and might be spoiled and manipulative.

4. Only Children

They are often self-entertainers and often the most creative, because they spend so much time alone. They are confident, pay considerable attention to detail, and tend to do well in school. They may develop a self-centered streak because they are used to feeling important.
