English abstract
The essay touches upon the topic of identity within dizygotic twins. The complexity of how the twins see themselves. There is a shared identity and there is a united identity. This paper touches upon the topic to be able to give teachers awareness of an identity problem that dizygotic twins may have; in hope of being able to accurately help students develop in the best way possible. The essay question is what is the relation between religion and the creating of a dizygotic twins identity? Female dizygotic twins and a researcher in genetics was interviewed to be able to give results from an inside perspective as well as an outer perspective. This qualitative study used the snowball effect method and gave results of dizygotic twins feeling different about their identity relation depending on how old they presently were. The subjects found that society were responsible for creating their shared twin identity. Just as preconceived notions label and group people, dizygotic twins are no different, and therefore also forced into having to battle with these notions.
