Abstract:
This study used a questionnaire designed to identify Adlerian birth order characteristics in twins. One hundred and ninety (n = 190) mothers of twins completed surveys requesting general demographic information as well as descriptive accounts of each sibling within the family constellation. An adjective checklist of birth order descriptors was completed for each twin. The resulting data were statistically analyzed using Friedman and Nemenyi's tests to compare the number of characteristics associated with birth order categories for each ordinal position. Results seemed to indicate that twins display Adlerian birth order characteristics indicative of their ordinal placement though this was not the case for every position. The largest number of characteristics for three out of five ordinal positions were those of "youngest." In contrast, twins uniformly scored lowest on "middle" characteristics.
