As prominent theory in Western culture, individualism has several implications for personal development. One example of those implications lies in its necessity for individuals to act independently in order to be considered unique. Consequently, individualism serves as a dilemma for identical twins, both because they have genetic similarities, and because their close relationship constitutes a unique part of their identity. This thesis examines the implications of individualism for identical twins and contrasts individualistic living with the theological vision for communal identity.
