Introduction: For decades now researches have studied that child outcomes differ by birth order and that there are many reason for why there is a significant difference in children. The influence of birth order on personality was a theme proposed by Alfred Adler, asserting that the order on which an individual is born in a family influences the subsequent personality. He argued that birth order can leave an indelible impression on an individual's style of life, which is one's habitual way of dealing with the tasks of friendship, love, and work (Kirkcaldy, Furnham and Siefen 2009). Many people don’t realize that birth order is such an important role on educational attainment, personality, intelligence and success in the future. The purpose of this paper is to identify the reason for why social influences and being born early in birth order make a difference in people’s professional advantage and to help gain knowledge and understanding of people. The social system demonstrated in Figure 1, will explore the relationship between parents and siblings and help explain my research. The social system for the model is family and the different element consist of whomever lives in the home which is usually the mother, father, children and some times other friends or family members. The parent’s role on the child plays a significant difference in each child depending on how they treat them. The relationships stated here are usually the reasons for the causes and differences so with this information we hope to make a strong final conclusion. Method:
