Oldest of 2... I'm the more aimless one and more of a risk taker. Younger one is more artistic however.

1st of 5 males. We're all professionals in the IT industry (and have been for years) but only I play poker. That should mess things up for you.

It is an intersting article but from experience of my family and others families i know it points out the obvious.

The oldest sibling will have the most peer pressure to suceed due to the fact they will be first to enter school/jobs/housing etc. So their expected to set the benchmark and provide a good role model.

Depending on the age gap the younger siblings can take more risks because of the stability offered by older brothers/sisters and their parents, if they want to take risks they know if it backfires they'll most likely be able to receive any backing they need from the older family members.

I am 1 out of 2. My younger brother is a risk taker but he takes bad risks and has no discilpine. He's an awful poker player as well. I on the other hand have a good job, and play a lot of poker, and i am a winning player both live and online.

That article is rehashing old birth order theories that i learned either in psych 101 or developmental psych in college. They may have new data but it's an old idea.
