I must have an older sibling somewhere

A new study in Norway shows these findings:


Eldest children, it’s commonly claimed, are natural leaders and problem solvers, with strong organizational and reasoning skills. There’s no study comparable to the Norwegian one to back this up, but it’s gained a lot of currency because it has the appearance of logic. Twenty-one of the first twenty-three American astronauts were firstborns, and they’re well represented among Rhodes scholars and university professors, says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., author of “The Birth Order Book: Why You Are the Way You Are.”

Firstborns are also sometimes said to be better at relating to adults than to other kids, since they’re so used to interacting with their parents.

Ok, where are they??
