double trouble - double trouble, twins
never personally known twins, but I guess their personalities would be different even if they where identical in every other way. I once knew a woman who had twin boys and she had difficulty so she marked their shoes with a coloured pen so she could tell at a quick glimpse, lol.

If you meet them for the first time, you wont be able to distinguish between the two. However as time goes by you will learn how to do so as each will have their own distinct personality.

My son has identical twins as friends. One of them has a small mole on his face so we can tell the difference. They have very different personalities though.

We call them identical twins. I have a set of identical twin boys, they are now 23 years old. I can tell them apart. They each have their own personalities that shape who they are. Their smile, their facial expressions, etc. My family and friends have a difficult time telling them apart. One of them has even let his hair grow longer and they still they have a hard time telling them apart.

It is very difficult to distinguish identical twins.But the father and mother can easily distinguish.Though they are identical in first appearence they differ a lot in their personalities and by long acquaintances we can distiguish them.

Do you mean identical twins? Identical twins are one fertilized ova that seperates into two identical people, and share one placenta. Non-identical twins are from two ovum fertilized at the same time and usually have two distinct placentas. The placenta is a fetal organ and is also called the "after birth."
