Did you see it turning clockwise or anti-clockwise ?

THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?


If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking

Check out the article at The Herald Sun
I can change her direction and see her turning both clockwise and anti-clockwise, try to focus and concentrate on her feet and the shadows and may be you can also change her direction

BTW It seems trickier to me

Strange.. I saw clockwise immediately, but the left side seems to describe me (mostly) better. Maybe it's because my eyes were.. somehow.. drawn to the top half first. I don't find it hard at all to change the orientation, though.

i love the fact that no matter which way she spins, she still remains unclothed.


hot damn it's hard to make myself see it counter-clockwise.

Try to look at her indirectly

with this I mean aim looking at something else while also looking at her and then try to think her turning other direction

I saw her spinning clockwise, but that only kind of describes me. I am a little of both.

I saw clockwise, and as I started reading under her, she started going the other other direction, what a bitch.

Women are that way Nova, just when you think you've got them figured out, they switch directions on you :)

I can switch them easily, same with the described brain functions. However I can't be both at the same time, I have to force myself to think logically or abstractive. I am in left mode while programming and right mode when drawing and illustrating. If I idle about it and pay it no mind I'll randomly wind up in either mode.

For some functions, it's easier to use my right hand and others it's easier to use my left. I write with my left hand but control my watch with my left. When typing, I use the index fingers on both of my hands and use my thumbs and little fingers for the left, right, and middle keys that need to be held down (SHIFT, CTRL, ALT, ect...) or the spacebar. When drawing, I use my right hand but I'm in right mode when according to research I should be left minded.

Of course it would be easier to focus on the direction of the spin if it wasn't a naked woman and something like a simple cube instead.

If I am not staring at the picture it rotates either direction at will. However if I pay attention to the graphic it stays one way as long as I look at it. My one coworker thought I was messing with him because he said it was changing direction every other second.

He called over the other admin and that guy said it is just spinning clockwise.

That's frikkin' weird. I thought it was a hoax and that it turned alternate directions on a timer or something until I concentrated on making it spin one way then on switching fast and could do it.

I'm ambidextrous and dyslexic with co-dominant eyes so my brain doesn't do most things the normal way any way, like those magic eye paintings. When I first saw one I thought cool 3D pic then read what it was all about and was surprised that I could make it go flat.

Neither is.

I've found the right side to be better at solving a problem than the left at times. The challenge is figuring out which side is best for the problem.

It was the right side of my brain that tells me to use FireFox because it's cute and the left side of my brain telling me because it is much more secure and doesn't crash on me all the time. The right side told me to put that cute avatar on while the left side said I shouldn't have an avatar at all since it doesn't make sense. If you think a little more, with both combined I actually get that avatars help associate online people with characterizations or pictures.

A face like that however, is much more easier to help me recognize someone. Hytek's avatar is a bottle, while AceofSpace's avatar is an Anime character. I remember ace more often because it's a personification rather than just an object. Using both sides I find an actual good logical reason to having an avatar because of what the right side can do.

Keep in mind people have varying right and left brain 'styles', it's not one-sided.
