Six brothers & six sisters
The Rayid Birth Order Model sees a clear pattern in the nature of the first six boys and the first six girls born in a family. The birth sequence number determines the innate personality pattern and the body type of each child. Although each child has a unique combination of characteristics based from the family tree, there are universal traits common to each birth order number. Cultural, social and family tree patterns will modify the characteristics, but the universal force of the birth order remains constant.
The number sequence of a child's birth order is key. The father determines the order of succession. Children conceived by the father follows a precise sequence of six types, regardless of who is the mother. An embryo who survives longer than 16 weeks of gestation is included in this automatic sequence. Any fetus lost after sixteen weeks still remains as part of the sequence.
Children follow the birth number of the previous child. For example, if the first child conceived is lost in the fifth month of pregnancy or is stillborn, then the second child is considered a 'number 2' child. This principle holds true if the father conceives a child with one woman and then has another child with a different woman. The second child is still considered a 'number 2' child regardless of how many other children either woman has previously conceived. It is the father that determines the birth order.
By studying each of the individual six brothers and the six sisters, it is possible to understand different combinations of gender and birth order. If the first born child (to the father) is a girl, she sets the order that follows. Subsequent siblings fall in line with that first girl position. If the first born is a male, all his siblings follow a pattern influenced by his first boy status. So, if the second born child (after a male) is a girl, she still takes on number 2 boy characteristics in the Birth Order Model.
