Youngest Child Syndrome
« on: November 18, 2020, 10:34:50 AM »
It has been done studies that shows that the youngest sibling is the one willing to take unnecessary risks (potentially experimenting more woith sex life/relationships), shows less responsibility (the youngest sibling has no siblings to take care of and is considered more spoiled then the others) and so are hypothetically exposed to more stress in life - something that could make you more prone to develop POIS.

That beeing said, there are things on the positive side also beeing the youngest sibling (or probably also the only child). They are:

Highly social
Confident
Creative
Good at problem solving
Adept at getting others to do things for them

Beeing the youngest or the only child has probably many similarities.
