Personality Traits of a Middle Child

According to research that birth order has something to do with the personality of a person. Each birth order has its distinct characteristics and personalities. The most crucial birth order is the middle child. Being the middle child is usually not very easy. It comes with some shame. They typically take on one of two personality types. The first type of personality is that of a loner. They are used to the first born and last born getting the attention, and so they become a bit of a loner. They are often shy because they have learned to let those who desperately seek the spotlight have it. They often become impatient quickly simply because they expect to be the last one to get what they want or need. The other type of personality would be the opposite of the above. They may be very outgoing because they have to get attention or they may be extra friendly because they are used to being surrounded by people. Usually a middle child will have almost opposite personality to that of their siblings. Of course not all middle child but according to research that birth order can affect personality type.
