Youngest Siblings Are The Funniest And They Know It, Study Finds

Sorry folks but a study has confirmed that annoying younger siblings, who are always at the centre of attention, are indeed the funniest in the family.

Anyone with a younger brother or sister knows the awful struggle of having to set a responsible example while they get to have all the fun – and attention. Not fair!

According to a poll by YouGov, younger siblings typically see themselves as being funny while elders claim to be more successful and organised feeling a greater weight of responsibility.

Studying the personalities of the youngest and oldest children in British families, the study found there were many differences in character between the two.

The key thing to note is the study says younger siblings ‘are more likely to say they are more funny’. So my sister can pipe down!

Since older children are seen to be more responsible, then they are also more likely to be successful according to the research.

It also proves though that ‘younger siblings are more likely to feel more favoured by their parents’ so, unfortunately, we can’t have it all.
