Twin studies are being used in an attempt to "prove" that human behavior is genetically caused. The findings are mainly based on answers to questionnaire, not studies of the DNA. The investigative process and the so-called results are extremely dubious.
Twin studies have been extremely popular and publicized during the past few decades. Many medical researchers believe that the results may yield answers to the cause of human behavior. They are wrong.
Several twin studies involving identical twins who were raised apart have reported uncanny similarities regarding lifestyles and personal preferences.
Twins separated at birth were smoking the same brand of cigarettes, marrying women with the same names, or choosing similar professions as adults. They are being held up as "scientific evidence" of the genetic influence on behavior.
The conclusions that medical researchers are reaching fail to take into consideration hidden, influential, psychic, subconscious factors, and remote psychic communications that may have been occurring even though the twins were separated by great physical distances.
Humans regularly subconsciously exchange communications with each other. We started doing that naturally when, inside the womb, we were in constant communication with our parents. We did that in psychic-energetic ways. We are all "natural clairvoyants." However, most of us consciously dull ourselves to our natural truth seeing abilities by about age three in order to conform to our parent's selfish way of life. In a selfish environment, truth seeing and truthful expressions are not only unwelcome, they can be dangerous. We all know that.
Stereotypes of identical twins assume that because they look alike, and are usually dressed alike, they behave the same and share the same likes and dislikes. That is never true, as any parent of identical twins knows.
Identical twins may look alike, however, they never have identical likes and dislikes, and, in fact, twins actually respond to developing events, situations, and interactions quite differently.
Identical twins are uniquely different individuals. They may share some of the similarities that all siblings share, but their many important behavioral differences greatly outweigh any of their similarities.
Identical twins (as all other humans) possess free will. They are usually of opposite basic selfish disposition; one twin is certain to be basically angry, and the other twin basically fearful. The basically angry, generally speaking, will be more outward, extroverted, and aggressive. The basically fearful twin will be more inward, introverted, and passive.
Every pair of twins will have entered into basic negative agreement with a different parent; the parent of the same basically angry or fearful selfish disposition.
Each twin has unique intentions, makes different choices in relation to what they know is truly right and loving, also chooses to selfishly react in different ways to the choices of the key people in his or her life.
Much of the alleged "evidence" for the popular scientific claim that personality traits, behaviors, and disorders are caused by a "combination of natural and environmental factors" comes from extremely dubious research studies.
The data generated by twin studies has emerged not from studying the DNA, it comes mainly from asking research subjects "a list of questions." The subjects' answers were taken on face value. Investigators usually make no attempt to challenge or make any attempt to verify.
The subjects' answers are then processed in sophisticated computers and the "analyzed results" are marketed as "facts" or "indicators of fact." This highly suspect research method has many flaws among the biggest is that it wrongly assumes that most people are honest.
Medical researchers also do attempt to search the Genome (a person's entire heredity information) to single out a particular gene that might be a natural factor causing a particular behavior. Past claims of this sort have all been ultimately disproved, or found impossible to duplicate.
Again, genes do not cause behavior. If they did, every pair of identical twins would behave the same but never do. To get around this inconvenient fact, many medical researchers have become extremely "creative" and conjured up baseless theories that claim that certain genes behave differently than most other genes in that they can remain "dormant" and become "active" later in life. Another ploy is that it is claimed that genes can "predispose" behavior
In spite of all this scientific theoretical twisting and turning, there have been no major medical breakthroughs, no clearly identified genes that geneticists can tie to a disease or disorder, or to characteristics such as sexual preference or a basic personality trait.
