Team Building: How to Find Double Birth Orders







Team members with double birth orders can have 
a devastating effect on a team. Single birth orders 
the Only, firstborn, second born, third born and 
fourth born all have both positive and negative
aspects. When a person has a double birth order 
they have 2 positive and 2 negative personality 
characteristics. Fellow team members will have 
great difficulty working with these people.

There Are No Bad Birth Orders
One may think that there are bad birth orders.  This
is not the case. There are not Bad birth orders just 
differences.  Its understanding the differences that 
can make you and your team’s life less stressful and 
more productive. Double birth orders can be very
good for a business if you know how to use their 
special talents. Letting them work alone on projects 
and not on a team will be beneficial.
Double Only Birth Orders
Each of the single birth orders can be paired with an 
Only birth order when there is a space of at least 4 
years between any child both above and below their 
order of birth. The possibilities are: One/Only, 
Two/Only, Three/Only and Four/Only. The Only birth 
order amplifies, intensifies, and magnifies the personality 
characteristics of the individual birth order.  The greater
the distance between the two birth orders the greater the 
personality fluctuation. The One/Only will have far less 
personality fluctuation then the Four/Only.
Double Ordinal Birth Orders
These birth orders occur when there are four of more 
years between groups of siblings.  When this happens
 the second group is more like a second family of 
children.  The oldest has to operate like a firstborn but 
they also have their own numerical number of birth.   
They could be the second, third, fourth, or fifth birth. 
Numbers such as 2/1, 3/1, 4/2, 2/3, 4/1 are the most 
common.  Just like the Only double birth orders the 
greater apart the numbers the greater the difference in
their personalities.
