Identical twins share one hundred percent of their DNA, while non-identical twins only share fifty percent of their DNA. Hanscombe, Haworth, Davis, Jaffee, and Plomin (2010) have done research that studied both identical and non-identical twins and evaluated the degree of chaos in their households. The study showed that identical twins have more alike responses to their environment than non-identical twins.
