Is your youngest child always the one that makes you laugh or sends her siblings into a fit of giggles? Research suggests youngest siblings are the funniest of the bunch.

According to a survey conducted by British pollster YouGov, youngest siblings are most likely to believe that they are the funniest members of their families, with 46 percent of younger siblings thinking they are the funniest versus just 36 percent of oldest siblings.

The study, which included 1,783 adult siblings who were asked to assess their personality traits based on their birth order, revealed some interesting insight into how birth order can impact a person as they become an adult.

The survey also found that 54 percent of oldest siblings feel more organized than their younger siblings. Forty-seven percent of youngest siblings are more likely to think of themselves as easygoing versus 42 percent older siblings.
