Once again another study is here to prove that your youngest sibling is indeed the hilarious one.  

Don’t shoot the messenger fam, but it’s true, your younger brother or sister is probably funnier than you.

The study, carried out by YouGov, asked people to evaluate their own sense of humour, responsibility, and self-confidence in comparison to their siblings.  

Results showed that the youngest child is not only considered the funniest, they are also the most relaxed and easy going!

Older siblings, however, tend to be more responsible and family-orientated. 

This evaluation is apparently heightened in cases where there are more than one sibling between the oldest and youngest child.

“The most significant difference is in feeling the burden of responsibility – most (54%) of first borns say they are more responsible than their siblings, compared to 31% of last borns.

Younger siblings, on the other hand, are more likely to say they are more funny (46% compared to 36% of elder siblings), more easy going and more relaxed.” 

And if you’re an only child… we’re not sure how funny you are, but studies show you need to learn to share.
