Sibling Relationships: How They Shape You

Are you a brother or a sister? How many siblings do you have? Believe it or not, the number of siblings you have, your birth order, and how you interact with your siblings will affect you for the rest of your life. As you know, there is nobody you will love harder—and also nobody you will argue with harder—than your siblings. Keep reading to learn more about sibling relationships, how they shape you, and how to improve and make the most of them with a simple self-help app.

Are You a Brother?

If you are a brother, you know well enough by now that you are looked at as a protector, especially if you are the older brother. In some cultures, brothers have more significance and can be seen as pseudo fathers.

With brothers, sibling rivalry and sibling competition manifest physically. Chances are, you want to be stronger, faster, and better at sports than your siblings, especially if you have any brothers of your own. You likely wrestled with all your brothers while sharing secrets with your sisters.

Are You a Sister?

If you are a sister, you are seen as someone who needs to be protected, especially if you are the younger sister. If you are the older sister, you are likely the family “manager”—someone who helps your parents make sure everyone is staying on track. You’re expected to be responsible and trustworthy, so when a sibling betrays you, it can be especially hurtful.

Sisters can be just as competitive as brothers, just in a different way. Sisters tend to share secrets and use words as their competition. Sisters like to have leverage against their siblings by being able to “win” against them with words, whether that is by telling on them to their parents or spilling a secret to another sibling.
