As mentioned earlier if the birth order theory was to viewed as a cause and effect theory such volatile behaviour may be thought of as an effect with the cause being the removal of undivided attention an love to understand why this may become such a problem for the child could be explained by operant conditioning developed by B.F Skinner in his theory he says that In operant conditioning we learn behaviours based on rewards or consequences this could in the case of the first-born from a young age because of how the child was conditioned to enjoy the love and attention of the parents when taken away from the child he or she reacts in a corrosive manner because of the ID and its primal attributes.
