TIDBITS® TAKES A LOOK AT BIRTH ORDER by Kathy Wolfe Is your personality the result of the chronological place in your family? Psychologists have had theories on the issue of birth order for decades, and this week, Tidbits studies up on their findings. Follow along and see if you agree with their conclusions! • Renowned Austrian psychiatrist Alfred Adler was a pioneer in the area of birth order in the early 1900s, and was one of the first to present theories that family placement affects personality and how individuals deal with life’s issues. He believed that parents tend to treat children differently based on the order of birth. • Adler’s theory maintained that first-born children receive an abundance of attention, but only until the second child is born. When a new baby arrives, the first-born may feel unloved, believing he or she has lost the mother’s love to the new baby. Adler called this being “dethroned,” and claimed it had a lasting effect on the individual. The loss of attention might cause the first child to become fearful, high-

achieving, anxious, or competitive. He might have a need to retain praise from parents and become prone to perfectionism, making him vulnerable to stress. • The accomplishments of the first-born, such as walking and talking, are monumental in the eyes of parents and the child is pushed to achieve at a faster pace. First-time parents worry if the child isn’t advancing as they expect and might pressure for success. Parents might push the child to carry out the dreams they had for themselves, and are often harder on first-borns. • Because first-borns often feel the need to be perfect in everything they do, they are usually well-organized, goal-oriented, and respectful of rules. Firstborns tend to become people pleasers, ambitious, and aggressive. • First-borns dominate the list of Nobel Prize winners, National Merit scholars, and astronauts. A few famous first-borns are Winston Churchill, Bill Clinton,

Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and Harry Truman. • When a second child arrives, the first-born often becomes the “helper.” This results in a desire to protect and lead, and they become nurturers and caretakers. • The behavior of a middle child is often the result of the fact that they have never been “in the spotlight.” Their older sibling seems to be forging ahead with achievements while the younger one is the “entertainer” of the family, making the middle-born feel upstaged, left out, and insecure. The middle child often tries hard to be different from the older sibling. Because they sometimes feel ignored, they

branch out on their own, becoming mentally tough and independent. They develop good social skills as a result, and often turn to their peer group rather than family for support. • Adler believed that middle children are more cooperative because they’ve grown up sharing attention. This also makes them more flexible and diplomatic, skills that allow them to thrive in business. The middles are also frequently good at peacemaking and negotiating – they’re good at seeing both sides of an issue! Fifty- two percent of U.S. presidents were middle children. • Because parents start to relax by the second child and become less demanding, middle children tend to have a more relaxed attitude

toward life than their older sibling. Some famous middles include David Letterman, Richard Nixon, Madonna, and Princess Diana. • A recent study indicates that first-born children receive about 3,000 hours more time with parents between age 4 and 13 than their younger siblings. Perhaps this is why first-borns are more pressured to succeed, as parents “loosen up” as more children arrive. Parents also spend less time with each arriving child because they get more proficient at child-rearing tasks. • The baby of the family is often more pampered than his older siblings. Adler believed this was one of the worst actions of a parent, leading to dependence, selfishness, and irresponsibility. He theorized that babied children easily become manipulative and temperamental. The youngest child often gets more attention because the older children have grown to different developmental stages and are somewhat independent. • The baby of the family is often the entertainer or the charmer and likes being in the limelight. He is more carefree and affectionate, and has a good sense of humor, but usually seems to be more rebellious than his older siblings. • The baby tends to be less responsible and more adventurous, taking part in risky activities and aggressive sports. He is the daredevil of the family. A recent study points out that those major league baseball players who are the youngest are 10 times more likely to steal bases than firstborn players. • The down side of being the baby is that parents often don’t give a lot of attention or praise to the milestones, since tying shoes and riding a twowheeler for the first time have become “old hat” to them.

• Famous babies of the family include Jim Carrey, Billy Crystal, Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin, and Rosie O’Donnell, which makes sense since babies like being center stage and making people laugh. • An only child has the advantage of receiving all the attention and resources. This often results in high achievers and better performance on intelligence tests. Single children learn how to play alone, which can lead to the development of vivid imaginations and fantasies. They also tend to be very close to their parents. • A recent study indicates that being raised with siblings makes for more healthy relationships later in life. The American Sociological Association says that the more siblings you have, the better your chance of a long and happy marriage, since you’ve developed skills in conflict negotiation and personality clashes. The research points to a reduction in the likelihood of divorce by 2% per sibling. Which child is the least likely to get married? Studies indicated that would be the only child. • More families are opting to have only one child now than ever before. In 1970, 33% of families had only one child. That percentage is about 43% today. Perhaps part of the reason is the amount of money it requires to rear a child to his 18th birthday. That figure is close to $300,000, which does not include saving for college. FAMOUS CANADIANS:

WAYNE GRETZKY

It’s no surprise that hockey’s greatest player should hail from Canada, home of many heroes of the ice. Here are the details about some of the many accomplishments of “The Great One.”

• Wayne Gretzky owes much of his success to his father Walter, who built an ice rink in the family’s Brantford, Ontario backyard, where he could keep an eye on his four sons from the kitchen window. Walter dubbed it the “Wally Coliseum” and it was here that Wayne was skating before he was three. Walter set up practice drills around bleach bottles and tin cans and regularly advised his sons to “skate where the puck’s going, not where it’s been.” • Wayne began team play at age six, playing with a group of ten-year-olds. In his final year of peewee hockey, at age 10, scored an amazing 378 goals, and by the time he was 13, he had scored 1,000 goals. • Although Gretzky was anxious to turn pro at age 17, he was prohibited from playing in the NHL, who had an age restriction of 20. The World Hockey Association did not have the same rules, so Wayne signed a contract with

 • It was noted British lexicographer Samuel Johnson who made the fol- lowing sage observation: “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” • If an American black bear is preg- nant when it goes into hibernation, she could give birth without ever awaken- ing. While she is still in her torpor, her body will draw on reserves of fat to produce milk to nurse her young. However, if something that could be dangerous to her young comes within 50 feet of the den, the mother bear’s heart rate will spike and she will wake to defend the cubs. • If you’re holding your nose, you can’t hum. Try it. • If you happen to be fortunate enough to spot numerous bears together in the wild (or unfortunate enough, depending on the circum- stances), thanks to this column you’ll be able to call the group by its correct collective noun: It’s a sloth or sleuth of bears.

• On a chemical level, there’s not too much difference between blood and seawater. • If you’ve ever looked closely at a zipper, you may have noticed the let- ters YKK on the tab. The letters stand for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikigaisha, which is Japanese for “Yoshida Man- ufacturing Shareholding Company,” which produces most of the zippers found in the U.S. • An octopus has three hearts. • A recent study by scientist Karl Berg suggests that an adult green- rumped parrotlet, a tiny bird native to Venezuela, will “name” its babies, assigning each a particular series of peeps to identify it. Not only that, other parrotlets then learn to associ- ate that exact series of peeps with that particular bird, and actually use the sounds to get its attention. ***

the Indianapolis Racers. The team folded soon after and sold the young player to another WHA team, the Edmonton Oilers, When the WHA went bust, the Oilers became part of the NHL, and the young Gretzky played his first NHL season in 1979. • Gretzky led the Oilers to Stanley Cup championships in 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1988, shattering records along the way, including most single-season goals and assists, and becoming the only player to break the 200-point mark. Just two hours after the 1988 Stanley Cup victory, Gretzky was informed he was being traded to the L.A. Kings. He was a member of that organization for the next eight seasons, leading them to the Stanley Cup finals in 1993. • It was on to the St. Louis Blues in 1996, but after just one season, he moved to the New York Rangers. While with the Rangers, Gretzky was a member of the 1998 Canadian Olympic hockey team. After three years in New York, the Great One retired after 20

seasons of hockey. He held or shared 61 NHL records, including most goals in season play, with 894 in his 1,487 regular season games. • Post-retirement, Gretzky became a partner with the Phoenix Coyotes and later became head coach until 2009. He served as executive director of the Canadian men’s Olympic hockey team at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake, leading the team to its first gold medal in 50 years. This father of five is active in the restaurant business in Toronto, as well as owner of his own wineries. • Players and commentators said Gretzky played like he had eyes in the back of his head, that he was constantly improvising. Gretzky says he actually sensed players more than saw them and would get a feeling about where a teammate was going to be. In his words, “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great player plays where the puck is going to be.”
