What do the results of twin studies on IQ say about John Locke's tabula rasa theory? I have to write an essay based on this question. Can someone help me with info on twin studies and IQ like between monozygotic and dizygotic? I also need help figuring out what exactly John Locke's theory was.

    John Locke's tabula rasa theory maintained that every infant was born with no knowledge and a blank slate. Everything the child becomes is mainly influenced by his experiences as he matures and learns.
