Last and First

First + Last



First Borns and Last Borns make an excellent match. Opposites do attract and work out, in Birth Order Psychology.

This pair can learn a lot from one another, although it is not always easy for them to do so.  Where the First Born has been taught to be a good role model for younger siblings and spent most of their childhood being the leader for siblings, the Last Born would have spent their childhood testing their boundaries whenever possible.

First Borns like to care for others, be in control and are organized.  Last Borns are used to being dependent, are less organized and want someone to look after them.  The First is more (J)udging in temperament and teaches the Last little things about organization, whereas the Last Born helps keep the atmosphere light and reminds the First not to take everything so seriously.
