Identical (monozygotic) twins have essentially the same set of genes. Identical twins are more similar than fraternal twins on a range of personality measures, indicating that characteristics are heritable. Personality and specific genes responsible for the ubiquitous heritability of personality traits has increasingly become a target for genetic research. The study was conducted in five cultural zones of Haryana state namely Khadar, Bagar, Nardak, Mewat and Ahirwal. A total number of district depending upon the availability of the twins were identified from five cultural zones of the state. A sample of 90 a pair of twins in the age group of 3 identified from different villages was assessed. Personality of twins was taken as dependent variable. A Five Factor Personality Questionnaire for preschool children was used for assessing the personality traits of preschool twins (Cathy L. Grist (revised), 2011). Result revealed that the various parameters namely agreeableness, neuroticism, extraversion, conscientiousness and openness revealed that the overall personality (0.60) was not significantly differences among monozygotic twins.
