What kind of bond Do twins have?

Identical twins share a particularly intense bond. They are the result of one fertilized egg splitting into two, giving them identical DNA. (Fraternal twins are the result of two separate, genetically different fertilized eggs.) As a result, identical twins are as close as two people can be.

What's so special about twins?

Twins are always the same age, and they usually share a similar environment, both in the womb and while growing up. ... Identical twins share 100% of their genes, while fraternal twins share only about half their genes (just like regular siblings).

Do twins have the same thoughts?

Identical twins, which occur when a fertilized egg splits into two, often look like spitting images of each other. ... Twins often finish each other's sentences and think the same thoughts, but that has more to do with shared experiences than any psychic telepathy.

Why are twins so rare?

The chances of having identical twins is relatively rare: 3 or 4 per every 1,000 births. Fraternal twins result when two different eggs are fertilized, each by a different sperm cell. This can happen when a woman produces several eggs (most often two) at the same time. This is called hyperovulation.

Why do identical twins think the same?

Brain-imaging research has shown that during mental tasks, such as memorising numbers, the patterns of brain activity (which can be considered a physical correlate of thought) are more similar among identical twins than non-identical twins.
