1.What is your earliest memory of a library? Who took you? Do you have any funny/odd memories of the library?

 My earliest library memories would be those walks from school to our little local library.  The only odd memory from a library was in jr. high at the school library, there was a half wall with a bean bag behind it for some reason… I walked over to find a couple making out.  I guess they found a purpose.

2. What two things are at the top of your to-do list? When do you think you’ll get around to doing those things? How good are you at crossing things off your to-do list?

Do some paperwork and get it mailed and put my pantech duo phone on ebay to get rid of it.  I have been postponing these two things for weeks.  I am usually very good at getting things done and crossed off my list. Oh and do a post for industrial knobs

3. Where do you come in the family? Are you the oldest? Youngest? Only child? Or smack in the middle? How do you think this has affected the way you grew up? Would you agree with your birth order personality? Are you happy with your birth order, or do you wish you had been the oldest/youngest, etc.

I am the youngest.  I have two older brothers.  Mike is six years older than I am, Jody is 10 years older than me.  I think I was spoiled being the youngest and only girl.  Looking at this list of last born traits I can see some similarities.  I am happy to be the youngest.  I wish I had a sister… I used to beg mom to have one more but she didn’t.  I think I would love to have a sister and am always jealous of all those close sisters.  Mom has like nine and they are some of her closest friends.  Most of my friends have sisters except Melody.  She has two brothers just like me.

Last born children tend to be the easiest to define when it comes to the correlation between birth order and personality, this is mostly due to the fact that there is only one main type of last born.

Last Born Traits

  • Risk takers
  • Idealists
  • Good sense of humor
  • Hard working
  • Immature
  • Attention seeking
  • Secretive
  • Sensitive

Last born children are often considered the baby of the family, and live up to this role. At times it is difficult for the last born child to find his/her place in the family, as the first and middle child have already left huge footprints to follow in, and carved their own niche into the family.

Strengths V.S. Weaknesses

Category Strengths Weaknesses
Traits Outgoing, sociable, affectionate, caring, creative, empathetic, and confident. Spoiled, manipulative, immature, self-centered, and capricious.
Career Careers in sales, or invention corporations work well because of their ability to sell things, including themselves, work well alone, want to be the boss, and just do their own thing at their own pace. Do not like to be tied down to committment, can be perceived as “cut throat”, try too hard at times, alternative routes in life may make them the odd man out.

Fun Facts

  • Famous last born children: Howard Stern, Jay Leno, Ralph Nadar, Bill Gates, and Danny DeVito
  • Tend to go against the norm
  • Make the biggest stirs in life
  • Know no boundaries

4. If it wasn’t for Jesus, I would be lost.

I enjoyed reading this. My earliest memory of the library was when the book mobile came to our neighborhood. I can still bring back the memory of climbing those steps and the smell of the books.

I don’t have a sister either. Thankfully, I’m very close to my brothers, especially the youngest one, and I have some lifelong girlfriends.

I am third born out of four, but because I’m the only girl, I seem to have a lot of first born traits!

I am looking for some idea and stumble upon your posting 🙂 decide to wish you Thanks. Eugene

This was fun! My husband is the opposite of you, he’s the only boy with two sisters. I wonder if he’s ever wanted a brother…But he’s really close to his sisters so I don’t think he did?
I’m the oldest, I need to find out what my “traits” are, I want to see how accurate they are!
Even though you didn’t have sisters, you have daughters, and they sound great 🙂
