Eminent Secondborns

Forer, The Birth Order Factor, New York: David McKay Company, 1976, 56

…eminent secondborns…conform to peer values rather than to an inner conscience (internalized parents), as firstborns typically do.  Thus, secondborn men tend to form opinions around current norms and are less easily influenced by established authority.  They are therefore more likely to initiate or accept social change.
