Birth Order Series Pt 2-Middle Borns
If you're a middle-born
Your philosophy is “Let’s look at this a different way.”
You are Sociable, flexible, open-minded, free-spirited, inventive, agreeable, sometimes rebellious.
You crave Fairness, and your own identity.
You avoid Confrontation and being pigeonholed.
People see you as A consensus builder, a defender of the underdog, a peacemaker, a rebel against injustice, a social animal.
People may be put off by Your secrecy, indecisiveness and unwillingness to share your feelings.
Careers Mediation, negotiation, diplomacy, social work, teaching, self-employment.
Relationships You are able to get along with almost everyone. But you sometimes defer to others in the interests of co-operation, ignoring your own feelings. A marriage between two middles could have both partners avoiding issues and miscommunicating, or “processing till the cows come home,”. Middles are the most monogamous of all the birth orders and the least likely to go in for councelling. Your best romantic match? Any birth order, but especially a first-born or baby.
Parenting your middle-born Ensure that each of your children gets a say. Don’t wait for your middle child to come to you with a problem; sit down with him or her, close the door and say gently, “Honey, you seem bummed out about something.”
Famous middle-borns Princess Diana, Bill Gates, Shania Twain, Sarah Palin, Martin Luther King, Mark Zuckerberg.
