    My brother is first born and he is introverted. I'm second born and I am extraverted. I was wondering whether being first born makes you more likely to be introverted.

    I think the title is going to skew the results - firstborns will be more likely to read and reply.

    (I'm an introvert, dunno about my younger sister)

    second, and introverted, my older sisters also introverted, but is MUCH more social.

    Also, this poll is going to be SO incredibly skewed, that your not going to get any sort of meaningful results. Most people here are introverts, creating a HUGE bias.

    :D I agree, it'll be tough to gauge. Unless you're really just thinking of the birth order aspect. BTW, I'm an only child...so I guess that counts as first born. ;)

    I always thought that first borns were more likely to be introverted, we like to please our parents and be good and all. But I was told by someone else that first borns aren't usually introverted.
    I am a first born introvert, with an extraverted younger brother. My dad (second born) is an extravert, and my mum (only child) is an introvert (also an INFJ).

    I am the last born of 4, and I am very introverted - This doesn't mean I don't like and get along well with almost everybody, but just that I feel my real worth and powers and stuff come from within me and other's real value comes from within them as well. I really sometimes think we can make some sort of valuation or some sort of nomenclature beyond these ways of thinking that relegate us into these comparative categories.
