Birth Order Differences in Socialization and Personality
In industrialized countries laws of heritage today no longer grant privilege to first-or lastborns. Sibling status has lost its former importance for the distribution of property or power. Reports from non-Western cultures, on the other hand, point to considerable differences in status and responsibilities between first- and laterborns. Firstborns may wield power over their younger sibs even as adults (Rin 1965; Rosenblatt et al. 1974). Avoidance rites of parents against firstborns have been observed and interpreted as a consequence of firstborns being the representatives of the following generation, destined to bury the preceding one (Fortes 1974).
