First born girls are most likely to succeed

If you are the first born girl in your family , then this news is for you; according to a new study conducted by the University of Essex, girls who are first born are more likely to succeed and be achievers..They took a cue from some of the world's most powerful and successful women like J.K. Rowling, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey ,Beyoncé and of course my humble self Gusty.

Lead researcher Feifei Bu said:

 ‘There are several possible explanations for the higher attainment and ambition of the eldest.It could be that the parents simply devote more time and energy to them – it could be they are actually more intelligent. For me, I tend to lean towards the theory that parental investment is possibly at work here.’

They are 13 per cent more ambitious then firstborn sons,But firstborn boys – such as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W Bush – were next in line for success.

The report – Sibling Configurations, Educational Aspiration and Attainment – followed 1,503 sibling groups and 3,532 individuals through the British Household Panel Survey and its successor, Understanding Society.
