According to latest studies, it has been proven that people born in September may be an edge above the rest of us! That’s right. Also, before you ask – no, this isn’t astrology saying so, but Science. Research shows that September-born babies are smarter and more intellectual because of some very important reasons.
The Science Behind A September-Born Baby’s Success
This all boils down to the cut off age for children being put into school. Most schools use September birthdays as the cut-off age for new students to enroll in kindergarten. These cut off dates mean that the oldest kids in a class will be nearly a year older than the youngest. Thus, September-born babies are most likely to be the oldest kids in class. Being older than the rest, they have an upper hand in grasping and learning. They even hit puberty earlier than most of the other kids. Hence, not only do they mature sooner than the rest, they also tend to do better in academics and sports.
Being smarter in class builds up the confidence of September babies and these kids do way better in later life.
It is believed that people born in September are extremely hard working. They like being organized and are born perfectionists, who can also at times be very competitive. This competitive spirit helps them achieve their desired goal, however high it may be!
September-born babies are always very confident. Since school, they have always been one step ahead of the rest, which gives them the confidence to undertake leadership roles. They know how to manage and coordinate different aspects of life. They are bossy to others but they don’t see it that way, they call themselves the “pushers” (read: people who guide and motivate others to be a better version of themselves).
September babies grow up in an environment where they have always been the mature and older ones who led the pack.
According to a research, from age 6 to age 15, children tend to pick up habits and grow into the people they are bound to become later in their life. Hence, the time of their school life and cognitive development stage can be a very crucial period for them. September-born babies tend to be more positive than the others due to all the responsibilities that are bestowed on them due to their being the older students in the class. They are more outspoken and courageous than the rest and tend to avoid taking a backseat in life.
According to a recent research conducted, September-born children were about 2 percent more likely to attend college, 3 percent more likely to graduate from college, and 7 percent more likely to graduate from a competitive or selective college than their August-born peers. Thus the benefits of being a September baby seem to last well beyond the kindergarten years.
