Twin Studies (Politics)

I do not see how it would be possible to be "blank slate" and then have this much in common with an "identical stranger." - 
I've seen this twin-stuff before, and went to med school with the infamous Marcus twins (movie with Jeremy Irons, forgot the title). They were never separated, but each was recognizable and slightly different in personality. I'm aware of the studies in the website you supplied. - Generally, I was taught people were 40% inheritance, 40% parent input and 20% personal input to create that person's personality. Obviously, the separated twin study will help change those percentages. - In the way you are looking at 'blank slate' you are correct. Personality tendencies are 'wired in'.
