Research indicates that children within a family all have distinct personality characteristics that result from their birth order. Firstborns, for example, tend to be achievers and natural leaders - half of all U.S. presidents were firstborn children. But firstborns also face unique challenges - they typically struggle with perfectionism, and bear a greater sense of responsibility than their siblings. On this broadcast, psychologist and bestselling author Kevin Leman explains the effect of birth order on how children view the world and function within it. Listen in as Leman also describes how birth order impacts adults and their relationships with others - especially their spouse. Don't miss out on the important insights Leman offers from his recent book, The Firstborn Advantage: Making Your Birth Order Work for You. "[Firstborns] have that little inner measuring stick that says, 'I have to jump higher. I have to do better.' Even when they do well in life [and] they get accolades . . . there's that little voice inside that says they could've done better. That's the scourge of being a firstborn child." - Kevin Leman
