Who do you think is the true clown in your family? Many think it is the older siblings since they have years of practice at their younger brother or sister’s expense!
Research by YouGov has just come out showing that it is actually the youngest sibling of the bunch that’s the funniest. The eldest is overwhelmed with responsibility, leading to a more serious, non-comedic tone. As it turns out the birth order does have something to do with differences in character, one being a more comedic nature for the last born child.
The study said: “Splitting out the first and last born siblings in British families with more than one child (86 percent of the population), a clear divide in personality traits emerges.”
The responsibility turns out to be the most significant difference as pointed out by 54% of first-borns who say they are more responsible than their siblings. The younger siblings have said that they are more funny and easy going.
