 Twin Studies - Psychology Dictionary of Arguments
 
Twin studies: Twin studies in psychology are research methods that compare the similarities and differences between monozygotic (identical) and dizygotic (fraternal) twins to understand the influence of genetics versus environment on human traits, behaviors, and diseases. These studies help to estimate heritability—the proportion of variation in traits attributable to genetic factors—providing insights into nature versus nurture debates. See also Heritablity, Nature versus nurture, Behavior, Personality traits.
