We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their crazy twin telepathy. Here are the fascinating and mind-blowing results!
1. The scary dream:
2. The bloody coincidence:
I'm a fraternal twin and we definitely have some twin magic going on! One time, she left school to get a blood test, but I had to stay in class. A bit later, I realized that I had a broken blood vessel in the inside of my elbow, but didn't think much of it at the time. When we saw each other later, I realized that it was in the exact same spot as where she got her blood test!
3. The near-death experience:
4. The shower slip-up:
Once in the shower while shaving, I managed to nick the inside heel of my right foot. It wouldn't stop bleeding, so I bandaged it up. Later on, I noticed my twin sister had a bandage on the same spot as mine. After a couple of days, I asked why her cut hadn't healed yet. That's when I learned it wasn't a shaving accident, but her first tattoo! My sister was getting tattooed in the same spot and at the same time as when I cut myself. Even we were freaked out.
5. The matching mountain climbers:
6. The swapped symptoms:
My twin and I used to feel each other's pain. Once as a toddler, I had a fever, but showed no symptoms and was running around playing; my twin, however, had the symptoms but no fever, and was lethargic and crying. When my mom called the doctor to ask his opinion he said, "I don't know who to give the medicine to, so just give it to them both."
7. The cooking catastrophe:
8. The great minds:
In fourth grade, my twin brother and I got sent down to the principal for cheating on our essays. We'd written almost the same thing word for word, but we were in different classes and never discussed them. Then in seventh grade, he broke his collarbone in a soccer game. I was home at the time and had no knowledge of it, but started to complain to my mom about a sudden, sharp pain on the side of my chest. Turns out that it was the same side where his collarbone had broken.
9. The sister savior:
10. The shared heart:
My twin sister and I were in our separate bedrooms doing homework when she came to show me a doodle of a heart she had drawn on her upper right thigh. I had also drawn a heart on my upper right thigh even though we were in separate rooms and had no clue what the other one was doing. Another time, we had a dream on the same night that our younger sister had been killed. Not the same circumstance in the dream, but weird nonetheless that we both had a dream like that. Nothing happened to her, which is great!

11. The heartbreaking connection:
12. The dream team:
When we were kids, my sister and I used to have the same recurring dreams. One of them was about stealing our mom's car to drive around the block and almost getting caught. The other was about jumping from the bottom of one bunkbed in our room to the top of the other, a feat that basically required the ability to fly. We both had that tummy clenching feeling like you get when you swing really high.
13. The matching Mother's Day:
14. The faint spell:
Sophomore year of high school, my twin sister and I were in different classes. I turned to my friend sitting next to me and said, "I think my sister isn't okay." He assured me that she was fine, but I didn't believe it. I knew my sister was sending a signal that something was wrong. I got a bathroom pass and went to her classroom to check on her, but when I looked through the window she wasn't in there. Her teacher told me that my sister had fainted and was in the nurse's office. I knew she was trying to tell me something.
15. The parking lot pair:
16. The wordless conversation:
I'm a fraternal twin (I'm a girl and he's a boy). When I was younger, my brother had poor speech and didn't talk very often. So, whenever he wanted something, he would just look at me without saying anything and I would translate (correctly!) to my parents.
17. The sleep talkers:
18. The strangling snake:
I have a fraternal twin sister. When I was really young, I had this reoccurring dream of being strangled by a snake in the middle of the night. I never mentioned it to anyone, though. My sister recently told me that when she was younger, she would have a reoccurring nightmare of waking in the middle of the night to find that I had been strangled by a snake. Crazy!
19. And the total acceptance:
