Spring, Vol. Abstract: The authors contend that two of the most important contributions of Alfred Adler to the behavioral sciences were the projective use of early recollections and the role of birth order as they both affect one's personality. One purpose of this article is to provide an overview of several developmental issues that arise within the broader context of a family systems approach and its implications on various individuals. Another purpose is to present an empirical case for statistically significant studies showing birth order differences.
Tell me what order you are in the family and what that means to you. Were you the youngest, the baby, who was taken care of, protected perhaps spoiled and not left to make your own decisions? You may have even been the peacemaker as the middle child, trying to maintain the calm in a family that was otherwise a little chaotic. Some experts believe that birth order is an important tool in shaping how you turn out as an adult. It determines how you see the world, how you expect the world to treat you, and how you treat others. If you are the baby, you will probably marry a firstborn.
