In the 2012 LessWrong survey, it turned out LessWrongers were 22% more likely than expected to be a first-born child. Later, a MIRI researcher wondered off-handedly if great mathematicians (who plausibly share some important features with LessWrongers), also exhibit this same trend towards being first born.

The short answer: Yes, they do, as near as I can tell, but not as strongly as LessWrongers.
