Identical in looks no, I do not think so. Identical (or at least very close) in personality and tastes then yes I think that is quite likely. It is definitely a nice thought.

This is a really good question and a difficult one to answer, well done Steven!
I think you can see people who look almost identical around but even identicle twins have slight differences. I swear I saw Prince Philip the other day, but what he was doing in Morrisons in Leeds I have no idea!

In that case then why do some people believe the same race people all look similar? Would you say this is to do with others perception and stereotypes on the race or to do with the certain cultures in which the race follow such as similar clothing?

I think this is a psychological thing. When people are not used to seeing those of a given race then they tend to recognise the things that make that race look the same, rather than the differences. In a similar way I think all Tigers look the same, because when I look at them I think “A Tiger” and notice the stripes and the teeth and so on, and (because my brain is not used to seeing Tigers) I don’t notice the differences between each Tiger. If I got used to seeing Tigers all the time I would notice these differences more.
Is there such a thing as identical sextuplets? Is it even possible!?
do identical twins have identical fingerprints?
