first-born of 6 (but escaped at age15).

Frank Sulloway's work on birth order and familial dynamics (in BORN TO REBEL, as I've mentioned previously) would seem to predict that *more* extropians and transhumanists, as ass-kickers and rebels, would be later-borns. Of course there are more 1sts than anything else in the world.

But his profile shows that we 1sts are also (by tendency) politically conservative and severe.
