On “Psychology Behind the Headlines”, hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest MHTN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dan Bober discuss the potential impact of birth order and the importance of recognizing both nature and nurture.

Birth Order Matters (Sometimes)

Research suggests birth order can influence personality. Firstborns often feel a strong sense of responsibility, sometimes leading them to take on the caretaker role within the family.

It’s Not the Whole Story

While birth order can be a factor in how we develop, it’s essential to consider other influences like parenting styles and individual experiences.

Recognize the Nurture

Birth order is just one piece of the puzzle. We need to acknowledge the impact of family dynamics and societal expectations on how women see themselves and their roles.
