right brain/left brain

This is kind of cool… check it out, when you look at the dancer spinning, is she turning clockwise or counter-clockwise?

How you respond is supposed to determine whether you are more right-brained or left-brained. If you're seeing the dancer rotate clockwise, your right brain is dominate. If the dancer is turning counter-clockwise, your left brain is dominate.

uses logic

facts rule
words and language

order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies

uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
risk taking
So… which way did you see it first?!

I've stared at this so long to see if I can visualize it counter-clockwise and I just can't do it... I'm so dizzy.

i see clockwise and can't even imagine how someone could see it spinning the other way! thanks for sharing this.

Crazy huh?! For the longest time I could not see it counter-clockwise, and then I started to get really frustrated and mad that I couldn't see it "from my left brain" so I asked my boyfriend to look at it and make sure "it works" (since he is definitely a left brain kind of guy) and he was able to see it. So I tried again, and viola! I finally saw it turn around the other way! So strange though… I love it!

tried my hardest, even got a co-worker to point out the counter-clockwise motion, but i STILL couldn't see it.
give it up for right brained, y'all!
