There are many misconceptions concerning twins. One example is that a lot of people thing one twin is always evil. Although I would tend to agree (my twin sister is definitely our "EVIL" one), this is not true. There are many other misconceptions about twins and following are a few I found interesting.
THE FIRST BORN IS OLDER
Identical twins are the same age, regardless of who was born first. One twin cannot be older because they were conceived at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME!
It is a common belief that twins are "Psychically Linked." We don't believe that twins have more psychic ability than anyone else may have. What many twins do share, however, is an identical environment and genetic make-up. This will cause twins to react to similar situations in similar way. Twins may say the same thing at the same time. They may think the same, react the same and appear to have some kind of unseen connection. Many non-twin kids have the same "ability." It just appears more weird when it happens to twins.
