Abstract
A small number of research has examined the links between the degree of family expressiveness and its relation to birth order. In this preliminary study, 45 Chinese young adults were examined and grouped into three different birth orders (15 first-born, 15 middle-born, and 15 later-born). The respondents completed the Family Expressiveness Questionnaire (FEQ) which contains 40-item that assesses the emotional expressiveness towards one’s family of origin. The expressiveness subscale measures the extent to which family members openly and directly express their emotions. Results indicated that Chinese young adults in Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) have greater frequency and intensity of positive submissive. Furthermore, the family expressiveness among the first-borns and later-borns scored highest on the positive submissive, whereas the middle-borns scored highest on the positive dominant.
