Right Brain vs. Left Brain

This is an interesting test to see whether you are more right brain dominant or left brain dominant. Which way does she spin for you? Clockwise means you use more of the right side of your brain.

I can only see her spinning clockwise, no matter how hard I try. For a brief moment I thought I saw counter clockwise, but it was just a split second and then it was gone.

*Update: After much staring, I finally see counter clockwise also. And I can switch back and forth between them!

I can only see her moving counter clockwise.

I just see counter-clockwise. Does that mean I'm insane?

She spins clockwise for me.

btw, did you know she was nekkid? Sorry, it had to be said. She's like the elephant in the room.

If you look right UNDER the video (at your text) and move your eyes right to left, she will move clockwise. If you move them left to right, she will then go counter clockwise. This is most noticeable if you keep her and your text in sight. :-) Try it! I thought I was going nuts 'til I figured that out.

just bob--When I focused on the shadow of her foot and really concentrated, I was able to switch the direction.

bernie--Normally that would just mean that you are left-brain dominant:
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
order/pattern perception
reality based

Do you think that sounds like you?

jeff--Now that you mention it, she is naked, isn't she? And I think it might be a little cold where she is, too....

Corrina--That's basically what finally worked for me, staring at the shadow of her foot. It did take me a while, though. I'm pretty sure that people like us that can see both directions are geniuses, don't you think? : )

I'm gonna have to agree with you there, Susan. :-)

I see dead people!

No, wait. I see it now. She's moving clockwise. Yay! I'm a right-brainer.
