Birth Order The chronological order of sibling births in a family Suggesting that the position a child has by the order of birth significantly affected the child's growth and personality.

The order of being born first, last, or somewhere in the middle itself doesn't have any significance with shaping a child's personality and growth development

But how the birth order affects the child is treated by the parents and other siblings & how that child may react.

BIRTH PLACE : Vienna, Austria History 1902
INVITED BY SiGMUND FREUD TO JOIN THE Psychoanalytic Discussion Group.

Soon I'd leave the group, due to some disagreements on Freud's Theories.
Being as I played a key role in Psychoanalysis, I developed my own school of thought. The individual human being is the best determinant of their own needs, desires, interests, & growth These feeling can "result in a "will-to-power" that can take one of two paths."
- The child will strive to become superior over others through acts of dominance or aggressive behavior.
- The child will strive to become greater by mastering their full potential. During my childhood, I suffered from Rickets. It disabled me to walk until I four years old. Due to this childhood illness, I became a physician.

Received my Medical Degree from the University of Vienna.I began a career as an Ophthalmologist, then switched to general practice. 1908
Birth Order

(The studies of behaviors in different people.) Lifestyle forms in early childhood; Partly determined by what particular inferiority affected most deeply An individual derives their personality traits from these essentially external factors:
*Over Compensation "A persistent sense of inadequacy or a tendency to self- diminishment, sometimes resulting in excessive aggressiveness through overcompensation." Sometimes not a major influence on personality development

Other potential influences such as:
organ inferiority
parental attitudes
social & economic position
gender roles
