The first two children born into a family often assume the roles of the “hero” and the “scapegoat,” but the third child can display characteristics of the “loner” of the family. This is the quiet, well-doing child who can go unnoticed. The loner child observes that most of the parents’ attention is taken up praising the hero and dealing with the troublemaking of the scapegoat, so if s/he simple follows the rules, stays quiet, and doesn’t make any waves, then s/he can avoid attention. Unfortunately, s/he can eventually feel lost and uncared for, having constantly lacked attention from his/her parents.
