Yep, another one of my ridiculous polls. This one is an attempt to confirm the results of a recent project which compiled a list of characteristics typically attributed to graduate school students.

Some recent Norwegian research showed that first born boys (Aau, you don't qualify) are generally smarter and more successful in life.

I think the article says 'men' because the sample group was a group of young male army inductees.

Probably because they are more "responsible".
Don't know about other places, but India the elder kid is expected to be responsible!

Am the only child. Never regretted this. Have a lot of cousins.

But I would like to have more than one child, so as "not to put all the eggs in one basket". Yeah, I am a cynical SOB who sees kids as a kind of long-term investments similar to MBA.

I skimmed it quickly. Didn't it say the first born , on average, has an IQ of 3 pts more than the second born.

3 pts?

Take it from someone with a bachelor's in psych, most of this rubbish and conversation fodder.

Hard to extrapolate much from this poll. More votes needed.
