This latter explanation will be more fully considered in
the discussion of the next hypothesis.
The fifth hypothesis dealt with a contradiction which
arose in the related research# The work of Schachter and
the finding® of Malzberg reached contradictory findings in
regard to the expected ordinal placement of schizophrenics*
On the basis of Schachter*s work we would expect schizophrenics
to be primarily in later birth positions* but Malzberg found
that they were over-represented—not in the latter# but in
both the first and last position. It was hypothesised that
the same distribution would exist with the present data* The
results are shown in Table VII#.
