From the article: Twin Telepathy
One of the magical mysteries associated with multiples is that they share a special connection beyond that of ordinary siblings. While the twin bond is a special aspect of their unique relationship, sometimes it is endowed with extraordinary supernatural qualities. Many families can relate stories about incidences where twins seemed able to read each other's minds, even without speaking or seeing each other. Share your stories that illustrate this special connection between twins. Share Your Stories
- I always know where my identical twin sister is or when she is upset - i cant read her mind or feel her pain like some of these other stories but i can tell when she is upset and no one else knows. I am hyper aware of her presence and we are both super defensive about each other. We have our own rooms but we still sleep together sometimes we are 13 - and although i could kill her sometimes, i would kill for her all the time.

- I have a twin brother i am a girl and when we were little we shared a bunk bed and we use to love being together and i guess one night my parents walked in are room and me and my brother both sleep talk and my brother said (come one we are going to be late) and a replayed at the same time he done talking (wait for me) and till this day me and my brother dream together as if we are in the same dream.

- My brother and I are hard to tell apart. We sound the same, move the same, and even have the same goofy sense of humor. We were born 3 minutes apart and i'm the youngest. It's annoying when someone can read your thoughts. Even when i'm day-dreaming he'll wake me back into consciousness and be like " I know what you were thinking about"..we both are athletic, genetically strong and agile. We share many similarities besides I tend to be much more level headed. I think emotions are intensified between twins and being genetically the same twins have the ability to literally feel and completely understand how each other is feeling. That's probably why anytime my brother has been hurt or disrespected (especially), I freak out and get super defensive because my brother is super sensitive and like I said....I can feel it

- I have a twin and we look the exact same but we have different likes but the same dislikes I was adopted and so was my sister but we didn't know each other. One day when I was about 9 I had a dream about a girl and she was on a plane and had a pink and white backpack and was coming to my town. Her bag was the same as my school bag. The next day my foster parent told me I had a twin and she was coming to live with us. When we went to the air port I saw a girl who looked like me with my backpack getting off the same plane as I dreamed. She told me she had a dream about a girl who was sleeping in the town she was going to with a pink and white bag Weird......

not just twins
- As someone that's always been intrigued by twins, I know this is a common phenomena in identical twins, but not necessarily in fraternal twins. What I mean by that is that fraternal twins, whether boy/boy, girl/girl, or boy/girl, are just like any other non-identical siblings. But I can tell you that although I do not have a twin, I do have a younger brother and a mother and I "get those feelings" that something isn't quite right, or that something is going on that's super amazing, when it comes to them and then I later learn about it. So it turns out it has less to do with being twins and more to do with some other sort of mental or emotional connection.
- I thinks it's true I'm an identical twin and we finish off each others sentences and we can on some occasions feel each others pain. When we were about 5-6 I was sitting watching tv and my sister was outside riding her bike. She hurt herself and I started crying and holding onto my knee it was line a random rush of pain but it happened on the same time and same knee that my sister hurt when she fell off her bike

- I am a 19 year old with 2 year old twin sisters. I babysit a LOT. The girls have this weird connection, it's SO cool. They do the "twin speak" thing, which started before they were one. The first time I saw it sophia (thing 1) pointed at the window and babbled something to the Olivia (thing 2). olivia babbled a response and they both started cracking up laughing simultaneously. They only respond to their own name but they have told people they have the other twins name. Also, the main reason I looked this up today, Olivia had a horrible horrible diaper rash. Doctors haven't been any help and today it's particularly bad. She was bleeding this morning and is very careful about sitting and what not. Sophia started pointing to her bottom and crying which I was instantly intrigued by. She didnt have a rash so far. When I changed her diaper she screame in pain, but no rash. Everytime something touches her bottom, another round of crying. It's so crazy and cool and AWFUL. I feel so bad for he

- Me and my twin brother are different in so many ways. We dress different, like different things, our hairstyle is different, ect. It all started in 6th grade. I was the tough guy and couldnt care less of anyone in school. If someone insulted me, i would fight them or get really angry. My twin brother in the other hand was really sensitive and would be surrow. He would get upset for simple things, Like someone calling him a bitch just playing around. As time went on in 7th grade, it seemed as our emotions were switching in a way. Now I'm in 8th grade and I have noticed since the begining of the school year that our emotions switched completely. I'm the sensitive one and hes the tough guy. If i get insulted just playing around, my eyes get watery and I feel upset. I dont know why but when i eat lunch, from no where Im upset and my eyes get watery for no reason. When you mess with my twin brother, he will name Every bad word in the book and cuz you out. Im greatful of being twins though:

It's amazing how it works!
- I'm an identical twin. Me and my twin sister can't be away from eachother for more than 4 days. We can read each others mind an feel the others pain.. One time she was getting a shot an me not able to see what was happening passed out. I get pains by my bellybutton when I'm away from her to long.

- I have a twin brother and when we were kids he was at a friend's house, and I was home. He was bitten badly on the hand by a dog, and I was in a lot of pain at home saying my hand was hurting. Moments later my brother came home with his badly damaged hand, and was rushed to the ER. This is one of many many experiences we have had.

- Im sure some twins don't have esp. But the ones that do,know it.My sister and I do for instance in 4th grade i was in class and was overcome by this feeling that she was hurt in some way. I left the classroom and ran to the nurse to find her there with a fractured cheek bone. Now as adults we lived separate in different states and each have had numorous accounts of getting that "feeling" when the other is upset or hurting. Once we called oneanother at exact times when both had broken up with a spouse. At the same time. I get a worry/butterfly feeling in my stomach when she upset and when we are together all we need is a look to know what the others thinking. And to any parents out there with twins keep them together always remember its one two halves make a whole.

- When I was younger I was learning how to skate and I fell and hit my head of the ice. I went to the ER and got my eyebrow glued shut. Once it healed there was a scar there. A few weeks later I was looking at my twin sister Rachel and on the same eyebrow depevloped a scar also. She has never gotten hit in the face or done anything to get that scar it just showed up.

- I have fraternal twin boys and I can honestly say that they have the same ESP or what ever you call it ability! One is right handed the other is left handed. When they were infants the doctor told me not to place them in the same crib because they could hurt the one another by poking of the eyes or scratching, against doctors suggestion I put them in the same. crib, but I placed them far a part and when they were only several days old I would check on them in the crib and some how some way they always ended up side by side. I don't know how on earth they ended up right beside each other, I never caught them moving, I guess they would wiggle while I was sleep. They are 7 now and they still share that bond. They always sleep with a hand, arm or foot on each other and some times one will get up in the middle of the night and climb in bed with me and dad, and later on the other will knock at the door, eyes still closed but senses knowing that their other half is missing!

- My sis and I were separated in school. There was a day I vomitted suddenly and during our break time, my sister's classmates came to my class to inform me that my sis was sick and vomitted at the same time I vomitted. Also till today we complete each other's words, we know what the other is thinking and when something happens to my sis I feel it. its vice versa.
