Publication: Vultology Parallels among Identical Twins

Abstract

Preliminary research aims to uncover whether facial expressions and mannerisms (vultology) are more heavily determined by environmental upbringing or genetic factors. Facial analysis using the CTVC (Cognitive Type Vultology Code 1.1) was used on twenty pairs of identical twins; measuring similarities in voice tone, facial muscle contractions and body movements. This included five pairs of twins that were separated at birth for between 10-33 years, having no means through which to imitate one another’s expressions. The study concluding that 100% of participants shared the same expressive profile and vultological type, offering strong support for the hypothesis that expressive profile is intimately tied to genetic factors.
