Abstract

The purpose of this study was to take one definable personality pattern, open and closed mindedness, and to see if this dimension is reflected in ordinal birth position, specifically first- and later-born. The literature reviewed in this study appears to describe the first-born very much like Rokeach (1960) describes his closed-minded person. Further, the description of the later-born is very much in line with Rokeach's description of the open-minded person.
