Let me introduce myself. I have a twin. We are around our 30's. Even though we are pretty similar (and it's rather obvious we are twins) we are easily distinguishable if you pay enough attention.
The interesting part is that we have telepathy between each other.
This telepathy works as follows:
- We can turn it off/on whenever one of the two wants.
- When turned on we share all thoughts and sensorial input.
- Our brain got used to work with this shared information, so we don't usually get confused due to that.
- It's a bit like having two screens in front of myself: One's what I see, the other what my twin sees; I can easily focus on my screen, change focus, or try to pay some attention to both.
Same's true for the rest of the senses.
About thoughts, it needs to be more conscious, and basically, we can hear each other with our inner voice.
Our telepathy travels near the speed of light, so it's effectively instantaneous (at least on earth).
Taking that into account, now I wonder: How could we exploit our telepathy?
We are not concerned with moral values but are worried about the risk of getting caught doing something illegal. Our main target would be to get money and power.
Edit a bit of context:
We live in nowadays World. In any suitable country for your answer. We are average, in education, economically, socially, etc (according to the country you choose).
