Many people think that their birth month influences their character and their destiny.
It seems like science has also been interested in the impact that the birth month can have on a child and an adult, whether it be on the personality level or even physical health.
Were you born in July or is your child? See how this month influences, besides being a great way to celebrate birthdays outside, because the weather is generally nice!
1. July babies are optimistic
Is it because everyone tends to be in a good mood in the middle of summer? In any case, a study by the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology showed that hyperthymic temperaments (i.e. a tendency to be excessively positive) were "significantly higher in people born in spring and summer" !
In addition, they would be happier!
Children born in the summer are less likely to develop depression than babies in the winter, according to a study from Vanderbilt University. Researchers believe this high happiness quotient may be linked to the newborn's body clock, which is permanently marked by the summer light cycle. In other words: they are born sunny… and stay that way!
2. They are good at controlling their emotions
Babies born in summer demonstrate more "stress control" than their fall or winter counterparts at 18 months of age, according to a Japanese study. From an early age, we note in them an "ability to voluntarily choose a course of action in conflicting conditions and to plan for the future and to detect mistakes." In short, they have good self-control.
Their parents and teachers will notice it quickly, as soon as they enter kindergarten.
3. They are unlikely to be diagnosed with schizophrenia.
A 2012 UK study found that babies born in July had their chances of developing schizophrenia later in life significantly reduced.
(January babies would be most at risk). Researchers believe the link could be related to vitamin D levels, as babies born in the sunniest month of summer get significantly more than infants born in winter.
4. July babies will need to develop perseverance
However, research has shown that babies born in the summer are less likely to pursue higher education. The theory of some experts is that this is due to the fact that summer babies are usually the youngest in their classes, but as these children will be optimistic, they will be okay!
5. They tend to be tall
A British study found that babies born in July (and June, for that matter) were the heaviest and usually grew into very tall adults. This could be explained by the fact that pregnant women absorb vitamin D better in the second and third trimesters and that this vitamin intake can give an additional benefit to summer babies.
6. These children are often left-handed
A small study by the UK Anything Left-Handed website and research by the University of Oxford found that significantly more left-handed people were born in July and August.
7. They are funny and very devoted to their families
Astrologically speaking, July babies are known to be devoted members of the family. Do you know what that means, mom and dad? Your darling little baby will grow up to be a caring child! She/he will always be there to help you and her/his siblings, even as an adult.
8. July natives are generally healthier
July babies have a head start in health, according to a study from the Columbia University Department of Medicine. Researchers looked at the records of 1.75 million patients born between 1900 and 2000 and found that "people born in July" had a lower overall risk of "lifelong disease" than those born in other months. For reasons that are unclear, the natives of July appear to have some protection against a variety of illnesses, including cardiovascular and reproductive disorders, as well as ADHD, asthma, and ear infections.
9. But they probably won't be company CEOs
Running a major business may not be your little treasure's future, a study by the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia found that significantly more leaders were born in March and April, and the fewest leaders were born in June and in July. The researchers speculate that this drop is the result of age thresholds in the public school system that make children born in summer the youngest in their class. As a result, they often perform less well on tests and are sometimes misdiagnosed as having special needs.
10. And they might need glasses
An Israeli study of 300,000 military personnel found that babies born in June and July are at higher risk of myopia. According to this research, the more the newborn is exposed to sunlight, the greater the risk of myopia. But lead researcher Michael Belkin of Tel Aviv University said there is a simple solution to help those summer babies' eyes: sunglasses, which are totally adorable on the market by the way.
Here are some celebrities born in July:
Liv Tyler, Tom Cruise, Kevin Bacon, Tom Hanks, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Jane Lynch, JK Rowling, Sandra Bullock, Kristin Bell, Daniel Radcliffe, Will Ferrell, Nelson Mandela, Princess Diana, Jackie Kennedy, George W. Bush and even Julius Caesar!
