How birth order traits can affect our relationships

Are you the first-born, youngest, or middle sibling in your family? Perhaps you’re an only child? Whichever spot you occupy, chances are you share personality traits with others in the world who share the same birth position.

In this video, therapist and author Nedra Glover Tawwab elaborates on how birth order roles shape a person’s outlook and ways of taking action, and how to apply that knowledge to forge better relationships.
