AbstractBirth order is one’s order of their birth in the family. An individual would be first born, second born, middle born, last born or single child with respect to their birth order with their siblings and single child is considered as so when there is no sibling. Birth order is believed to have a long-lasting impact on an individual’s personality and their psychological development. Alfred Adler was the first to discuss the influence of birth order on personality development. His theory suggests that birth order and the number of siblings affect an individual’s potential and he believed that an individual’s birth order have direct association with their personality characteristics. Courage is mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty (Merriam Webster, 1828). Self-efficacy refers to an individual’s belief in his or her capacity to execute behaviors necessary to produce specific performance attainments (Bandura, 1977). This research aims to study the Courage and resilience in Birth Order among Young Adults (18 – 25 years).
