Birth order is defined as a person's rank by age among his or her siblings. Studies indicate that family position can have a strong influence on a person’s personality. This experiment will evaluate this premise by looking for similarities in personality-type among first born, middle children, and last born participants.
Evaluate whether birth order influences personality.
- Myers-Briggs personality test
