A Chinese study suggests only children have different brains which make them both more creative and less agreeable. They have extra grey matter in the supramarginal gyrus part of the brain thought to help only children come up with new ideas and think out of the box.
They might be able to think the extra time on their own thinking independently as a child.
However the study adds only children have less grey matter in the medial prefrontal cortex which governs agreeableness. It says the extra attention from their parents and grandparents could make them worse at getting along with others behaving selfishly and with less empathy for others.
The authors from Southwest University in Chongqing China write in the journal Brain Imaging and Behaviour: 'Due to the absence of siblings only children usually miss out on important opportunities to rehearse some of the more complicated aspects of relationships within a safe environment and also miss many opportunities to develop psychosocial skills emotional support and learning opportunities compared with non-only-children.'
Are only children doomed to be selfish? Or Are they are raised to be spoiled or self-centered?
