I got a pretty good laugh from this because I'm the oldest of seven and the most liberal leaning and open minded of all of my siblings.

Live Science says that firstborn siblings are more likely to be conservative than the second-born.

The theory, which is pretty controversial, says that firstborn kids are used to being dominant, so they prefer to uphold the status quo. The study also says that firstborns also stay conservative in order to align themselves with their parents.

Second-born kids, on the other hand, are looking for a way to get attention in their families, so they rebel.

I don't buy a word of it. How about you?
