    We are monozygotic twins yet my brother had an lung infection at birth and rejected mother's milk so he has skinny tendencies and I have a more bulky shape.

    We have the best relationship, we care for eachother, we share a lot of things and sometimes we just like to be around one another for no reason besides being together, altough sometimes those feelings aren't mutual, sometimes one needs more privacy than the other.

    Personality wise, I'm the overthinker, more sensitive, neurotic, curious, he's more independent, literal, emotionally stable yet a little bit crazy (in the eccentric sense). But we both are shy, nerd and a little bit socially clueless.

    I'm gay and more experient regarding sex, he's straight although he is very inhibited sexually, almost to the point of liking the ideia of assexuality. When I say this to people (usually I tell this to the gay/bi people because I'm not confortable to straight people about telling this comparison) the most common reaction its judging my brother as a very closeted gay case which annoys me to no end because that's like saying "you're brother must hide this from you" and this makes no sense because in our relationship we don't hide important things like those.

    Anyone here has a twin brother? Wanna share your story? Do you have questions you like to make.

    I have an identical twin brother. However, he's (1) hetero and (2) abrasive. We're at a stark contrast in personalities, while I've met many other twins who are quite alike.

    I'm assuming it's our competitive nature which makes us so different from one another. Unfortunately we don't often speak, it's been roughly a year or so. He's at NYU studying law and has no plans on returning to California.

    Here's a picture of us 5 years ago (we were 17), during our senior year in high school. Don't judge too harshly grrr, I know I look like a tool.

    I have an identical twin brother. He's straight, but we're ALOT alike. The biggest difference between us, besides our sexual orientation, is that he's a big "J" on myers brggs and I'm a huge "P".

    There was a whole squirtload of us way back when at the very beginning, but, I beat them all to the egg. Everyone else wound up in the toilet, later on.

    Intriguing indeed.... as a "J" suddenly your speaking my language.
    I'm curious, (for those who are clueless) describe the different between your twin (and his orderly, structured life) and your laid back "P" lifestyle.

    For the identical twins, I wonder if posting body shots of yourself on RJ invades his privacy.icon_biggrin.gif

    I have a twin sister. I like it how it is, I am super competitive with my current situation, I can't imagine how competitive I would be if I had an identical twin! My sister and I get along great! Its fun because her son actually looks a lot like me!

    My brother likes to make lists, he prefers matters "settled," he is an INTJ, so he expresses himself as logical and a thinker (Js express their "thinking/feeling" function to the world, whereas Ps express their "sensing/intuituve" side to the world). He is organized and prefers a routine. He gets stressed out by sudden surprises. He starts projects early, and especially enjoys the planning phase.

    I'm an INTP, so I express myself as abstract (my N side). I hate routine, and prefer to keep my options open. I like to "go with the flow" and don't like expectations placed on me. I adapt very well to change, and I consider each situation discretely and relativistically (i rarely make generalizations). I'm a bit messy. I wait for the last minute to do my work and I thrive on tight deadlines.

    I have a twin sister, and it's pretty surprising how many people ask if we're identical! HELLO?! You can't be identical if one of you has a penis and the other has a vagina. Geeze.

    When we were younger we couldn't stand each other, but now we have a really good relationship. She's pretty tall for a woman, about 5'10", but people always ask if she's as tall as I am if they've never met her before. She's also really athletic, into dudes, and a really cool person.

    If I'm gay, my non-twin brother has a 6-10% chance of being gay (maybe slightly higher if he has a lot of older brothers).

    My fraternal twin brother has around a 30-35% chance of also being gay.

    My identical twin brother has around a 60-70% chance of also being gay.

    Yeah, genetic diseases are not always expressed 100% between identical twins either.

    I have a twin brother too, just not identical. We get along really well. Shared dorm rooms together in college even, people didn't understand how never fought!

    Poeple ask us the same fucking question. If my sister and I were indentical twins than one of us would have a SERIOUS problem!

    You know what would be a SERIOUS problem? If you were identical twins but one of you is post-op transgendered.

    Yeah identical twins are not actually exactly the same. Take a look at this article for example at Scientific American:

    From Article link below"But experience shows that identical twins are rarely completely the same. Until recently, any differences between twins had largely been attributed to environmental influences (otherwise known as "nurture"), but a recent study contradicts that belief.

    Geneticist Carl Bruder of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and his colleagues closely compared the genomes of 19 sets of adult identical twins. In some cases, one twin's DNA differed from the other's at various points on their genomes. At these sites of genetic divergence, one bore a different number of copies of the same gene, a genetic state called copy number variants.

    Normally people carry two copies of every gene, one inherited from each parent. "There are, however, regions in the genome that deviate from that two-copy rule, and that's where you have copy number variants," Bruder explains. These regions can carry anywhere from zero to over 14 copies of a gene.

    Scientists have long used twins to study the roles of nature and nurture in human genetics and how each affects disease, behavior, and conditions, such as obesity. But Bruder's findings suggest a new way to study the genetic and environmental roots of disease.
    ...
    "Maybe we shouldn't call them identical twins," Harvard's Bieber says. "We should call them 'one-egg twins.' "

    I have an identical twin. He is married with 3 kids. Needless to say, we are not so identical anymore. We sure had a great time fooling people growing up though. Sometimes even our parents couldn't tell us apart, though once we were around seniors in high school we started to show differences in size and shape.

    I was to grow up with me mom always telling me: "why couldn't I be more like my twin brother!"

    He died at childbirth.
