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.

LEFT BRAIN
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
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
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.

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!
