Are you an older, middle, youngest or only child and do you fit the stereotype?
I am the youngest. After searching online, it appears the most common stereotypes for the youngest child are (i) risk taker; (ii) highly social; (iii) youngest child gets away with more than older siblings; and (iv) youngest child puts blame on others. I fit the stereotypes of being a risk taker and being social. I got into more trouble than my brother when I was younger so I don’t fit that stereotype. I did put the blame on my brother when I was younger so that stereotype fits.
