hey lotters! I study in college now and just this year there are these two twin girls who took admission in the college and the both landed up in my classroom! and now its been almost 6 months that I have been meeting them everyday but still i can never figure out who is who! I mean the same hight, hair, eyes, nose, ears!! And the worst part, they both have names that start with an 'S' 1) Shreya 2) Shruti I MEAN COME ON!!! do you people face the same problem at times??

Oh that is not so good,lols.. Do they act the same and speak same way, as in? I used to have classmate, but one is old fashion and one is not, so if you see them both, you will know who is who by the way they dress,lols. That is really problem if you dont figure out soon... Check there manicure if it is the same, or bags or anything,lols. Im confuse now too,:P

No I don't. My ex was one of a twin and I did see the difference. There always is unless you are not willing to have a closer look. The eldest is mostly a bit shorter (pushed out earlier), there is a difference in the way they walk, behave and they are for sure not exactly the same. There is always one "leader" and one "follower". So start observing one (it depends on the twins if they like to fool you as well), I can assure you there is a difference if you have a closer look.

If it is really an identical, you can still distinguish the way they moved. The distinct likes to something showed their difference to each other. The perception to something will be different. Physically, I don't think there is a total similarity.

There might be a very small difference that I did not notice yet.

Its hard to separate them, I remember talking to a twin boy and when I see his brother I was talking to him not realizing and he was pretending to be his brother lol . I know he had a twin but I never met him until that day and he was just acting like his brother . When I talk to the brother I then started to see the difference between the two . If you know both twins you will find the difference in them , no matter how identical they may seems.

I think it would be difficult to distinguish unless you want to take their fingerprints. Their mother may know more than anyone because she gave birth.

Welcome to mylot. Thanks for this discussion. Identical twin look almost identical, only very close friends can find the difference , some times mothers dress them differently, comb their hair differently so that one can guess right. I think Shreya and Shruti are identical twins.

There was this anime that I watched that had twins that looked exactly alike and the main character that was a girl could recognize them like they were completely different. I guess you could recognize them with their personality or maybe you could make a mark on the other one...

I have cousins who are twins and they lived quite close so I was able to visit quite often and therefore knew them extremely well. As children, that would be up to the ages of around 14 or 15 years old, I could not tell the difference between them. As a general rule I would depend on whatever they were wearing each day because they did dress differently. I imagine it must have been very difficult to most people to tell which one was Mary and which one was Agnes even in their late teenager years and early twenties. It was only because I was so familiar with them that I had a chance of knowing which was which even in their late teens.

Hi leonsandi! I think it happens sometimes when the both of the twins are exactly same because sometimes some twin pairs are not exactly same and they are a bit different from each other as when i was small there were also two girls lived near my house and many people were not able to recognize the difference but actually one had got a black spot on his cheek so it was easy.

They are identical twins so you will only find them different if they were to wear another hair style or wore clothing the other did not wear or they were not both in your class. I would never want a twin sister. the things they could do is crazy. I even think they have the same finger prints. that is really scary. can you imagine one being a criminal and the other being mistaken for them and arrested. Oh boy that spells trouble. I know of two sets of twins that were in jail together. they had visits together an the mother could only be with one twin that visit. she would visit for half the visit and let the wife stay the last half hour. I thought that was great.

Hi. I guess you need to focus more on their traits and characteristics rather than their physical attributes since you're having a hard time distinguishing who is who. For example, one is fond of a certain color while the other is not or one is more cheerful than the other. Hope this helps. Good luck.
