Scientists Suggest Your Birth Month Influences Your Health and Personality

2 years ago

People who are born in May are prone to be optimists, while those born in November tend to see the world through the opposite lens. Many researchers have tried to understand how different one can be based on the season and month they’re born in, and are succeeding at it. One study says that your birth season and month might influence your personality and skills. Actually, your health too, according to data gathered from 1.7 million people, studying 1,688 conditions.

We at Bright Side were astonished by the findings, and they were actually pretty accurate for us, so we decided to share the results with all of you.


If you are born in January you are more than just a winter born, you were born in the first month into the new year which means many different opportunities. In fact, people born in January tend to pursue a career in medicine or debt-collecting or even become athletes. And they’re more likely to become creative and famous.

Your health tends to be better than average and you’re probably protected against most issues, just not to cardiovascular conditions. Emotional health, though, could use more protection and attention: schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are way too common among January-borns, even though they are less prone to having an irritable temperament.


February-born babies tend to be happier in their lives and with their careers. Also, chances are high that you might have been born prematurely. This means you were lighter as a baby but as an adult, you might be shorter too. February is also the month of creativity and you might be pursuing a career path as an artist and even become a famous person.

When it comes to health you are pretty much protected from overall diseases. Plus, you might have some protection against neurological as well as respiratory and reproductive diseases.


March is the month when we welcome the sunshine and if you were born in this month then you probably look for the sunnier side of life. Also, most people who were born in the spring might be exposed to hyperthymia, which means they are always in a good mood and positive.

When it comes to health, March-borns might need to keep an eye on their cardiovascular system.


Just like for people born in March, April babies tend to be a lot more positive compared to people born in the winter, the summer, and the fall. When it comes to career, April babies could have the chance to choose from different career opportunities.

You have very good protection against overall health issues (but you still have to take care of your cardiovascular system, as you tend to follow March-borns on this matter). Plus, you have a low chance of having ADHD.


If you were born in May, you might consider yourself to be the luckiest, as most people born in this month apparently do. You were born to be an optimist. If we are looking from a career point of view, they don’t need to be focused on a single career because their choices are wide open.

The same goes for health. May borns are generally not prone to any high-risk diseases and have high overall protection against them. However, according to studies, even though they’re optimists they’re also prone to depression.


With all the positive vibes that March, April, and May-borns have, people in June have it too. However, they are more prone to mood swings and can turn their happiness on and off really fast. Also, you might get delayed entry to school, a common thing for people born in this month, but you still might attain great academic achievements, as studies show they have more time to mature before starting school.

Health-wise, there might be slight respiratory and cardiovascular risks, but June babies are overall healthy. Plus you might have some protection against reproductive diseases.


According to a study, if you were born in July you might have the ability to self-regulate your emotional life and control your aggression. When it comes to talents, most July borns have an artistic side and might be left-handed.

When it comes to health you might have protection against reproductive and overall health. Plus, women born in July might enter puberty a bit later in life.


Being born in August means fewer academic goals, but you are greater in numbers. According to statistics, 16 years’ worth of data shows that most people are born in August. Also, you might have that glow, be optimistic, and exude the positivity that people born in spring do.

When it comes to health, mood changes that come with being overly positive won’t put you at risk for bipolar diseases. In fact, people born in the summer have the lowest chance of getting it. Again, if you are a woman you might have entered puberty later, which also means a healthier life in adulthood.


People born in the fall have generally low levels of depression. But if you were born in September you might find yourself fighting this off and succeeding athletically.

September-borns are at moderate risk of developing diseases but have a higher chance for asthma, and they have some protection against overall cardiovascular diseases.


Just like people born in September, October-borns are generally great at sports. In fact, while most people that were born in the fall are tall, those born mid-October may be even taller.

If you are one of those who were born in October, you might have a highly increased chance overall of developing diseases. However, you might have a lower risk for cardiovascular issues.


People born in the fall, including the month of November, tend to be hyper focused. Combined with a low risk of depression, it might give them an advantage in their life when reaching for their goals. They also tend to be the biggest amount of pessimists.

People born in November, compared to people born in other months, have a higher risk for overall conditions, especially respiratory, but might have the biggest protection against cardiovascular diseases. Also, ADHD peaks among November-borns.


If you were born in December, you might be one of the rarest people in the world, especially if your birthday is on the 24th or 25th of the month. But when it comes to mood, you are not irritated easily and you are a lot more steady compared to people who are summer-born.

December means that you might have a higher risk of reproductive conditions, but you tend to have good overall health. In fact, according to a study you have a higher chance of living up to 105 years or more.

What month were you born? Do your personality and health match with scientific findings, and in what way?
