A research has called upon 700 young people to find out an answer about siblings. This particular research has shown that if you have a younger sister, your satisfaction level will be higher than average. ⁠

You read that right and like a brother or an older sister or younger sister is the key to your happiness! ⁠

Researchers suggest the reason behind this is because girls, in general, like to talk. Unlike boys who are used to sucking it all up, girls are better at encouraging family members to express their emotions. ⁠

So if you have a younger sister in the house, chances are your family is better at communicating. As long as everyone can just talk it out in the house, there might not be that much stress. The less stress you have in life, the more happiness you got. ⁠

Another research has also pointed out that sisters have a positive impact on family members’ mental health. It’s shown that empathy, self-esteem, and even people skills are improved with a younger sister at home. They may even be helpful for male family members to talk to girls. ⁠
