Right Brained?

Last time I looked at this, I could not see it going in the counterclockwise direction. I apparently am very right brained.

When I was posting this, I very briefly saw it turning counter-clockwise. But now it's back to only clockwise...

It spins faster on the original site, the link is right there at the top of the box.

Right Brain v Left Brain

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.

I don't know about everything on the right brained list -- some of them seem to fit me, but others, I am not so sure about...The philosophy and religion versus math and science, for example. I am not philosophical, I don't think. At least, trying to learn and read about philosophy leaves me cold.

I dunno, though, perhaps those that know me best would agree with the list...


  1. OK, maybe I'm bi-brained (yes, I chose that wording so you could use it as a straight lime).

    Although I initally saw it as counter-clockwise, I could make it change to clockwise whenever I wanted, as long as I picked a time at the image's longitudal (?whenever her pointed to was facing either directly away or towards me) axis.

    I mind goes both ways. I guess that is why I can be both a musician and a computer geek.

    Or not!

    OK, this is way strange. When I look at it straight-on, she's going clockwise. I can't make her go counter-clockwise. Then when I look away and catch her out of the corner of my right eye, she goes clockwise and continues to go clockwise when I look straight-on. The corner of my left eye changes nothing! Hmmm.


  3. I guess I only have half a brain... no matter what I do she ONLY goes clockwise! Which is kind of odd because the left brained description describes me as better than the right brained description... very interesting.

You like me! You really really like me!

Or maybe you just find me horribly annoying and are about to let me know. Go ahead, I can deal.

So, whatever, you know, leave a message. Thanks!!!
