Do you fit the mold?

Last week, a friend posted this graphic on Facebook:

The person who posted this is an only child and she commented that it described her very accurately.

I am a "first" according to this chart.  I'm not so sure it fits me at all.

Natural leader? Nope.  I hate making decisions.
High achiever?  Um. I've failed in so many aspects of life, so ... no.
Organized?  Ha ha ha ha.  Not at all.
On-time?  YES.
Know-it-all?  I like to think I know a lot, but I'll admit when I don't know something.
Bossy?  My brother probably thinks I am.
Responsible?  YES.
Adult-pleaser?  Yeah, this is probably true.
Obeys the rules?  Yes.  My friends even make fun of how I drive because I follow the laws.

Do you fit the mold for your column?  
How about your kids (if you have them)?


  1. I've read a book about this... the name is escaping me at the moment, but it's really interesting to think about those you know well and if they fit into "their category."

  2. I'm a first, but on this chart, I'm somewhere between first and middle. Maybe because my mom had to raise my dad too?

  3. I'm a first child, and it pretty much hits the nail on the head for me! :)

  4. I am the oldest and I am never on time but I probably have bossy and Know-It-All covered.
