    Yeah, right?

    Literally millions of different possibilities before conception, and they're wasting money figuring out if there's some kind of pattern :rolleyes:

    Ha ha. Isn't all research?

    I'm a first born of four and the only female. I didn't see anything in the article that noted gender differentiation. I would think that might have influence on "personality" don't you?

    it has long been held that 1st borns are more apt to be the more intelligent of the brood, but there are many examples were others in the brood take that spot.

    what does it mean? not much. one is either intelligent or one is not,.
