Perks of Being an Only Child
What are the advantages of being an only child?
I am interested in this topic because I am an only child. One of the perks of being an only child include the independence that you gain. You dont have any one to look up too, and you have to try new things, which can be really fun. After researching information on my topic, I found some interesting stuff. First born children usually display a higher IQ. An only children can embrace this enriched environment. They also have a lot of self esteem from the positive enforcement of their parents. Another site that I searched talked about the personality traits that only children tend to have. The negative personality traits include to be more self-centered, egotistical, bossy, and lonely. But on the positive side they have a higher IQ, more creativity, contain abstract and mechanical reasoning, mathematics, and reading and english comprehension. I think those things cancel out the negatives! For people who are an only child, would you agree with some of these personality types? I asked some of my family and friends if I portrayed these characteristics, positive and negative, and the said I contained some of both. If you have siblings, what are your views on only children and do you like having siblings?
