That is, in two-child families, the older sibling is the one with the higher IQ.
Second child, child, early education
Reproductive scientists have long said that when sperm and eggs are active, they tend to combine to produce smarter products.
When I was born, I saw my husband. He was a man.When my husband was born, he was just alive.
The first was passion, the second was homosexual love.
So it’s not hard to understand that older siblings are more likely to be smarter.
And when I was the eldest, we sent early education in six months, did enlightenment at the age of two, and bought a lot of toy books for fear of delaying a little genius.
When it’s time for the second child, just play around!
But why do I find that the eldest brother is often busy, sensitive, rather melodramatic, not much use of his natural advantage.
Although the second child is “born inferior”, we do not pay so much attention to them, but create their “self-improvement” character.Not afraid of challenges, willing to experiment, flexible, often fight back?
Because IQ is sometimes less important than EQ.
What little IQ advantage the oldest had was wiped out by more than a little more EQ.
But why in the same home, the second child’s EQ is often a little higher?
Come on, let me get back to the research.
I once read a paper that talked about this question:
Eldest siblings share the same parents, but even identical twins can have different temperament types.
According to Adler in the paper, it is not family rank that determines children’s behavior, but environment that determines it.
The eldest child lived in the same family, with the same parents, but the two children grew up in different circumstances.
In order to adapt to their growing environment, children’s attitudes to things will also appear different.
See, the survival guide for all species on Earth is the same — natural selection, survival of the fittest.
A lot of second-child families are like this:
The eldest is born with all the resources to himself, and he’s used to being the center.
And the second child, from birth, everything is to share, including mom and dad.
