    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.

    There. Despite that most of my friends can see it either counter-clockwise or both, I can only see it spin clockwise. Much to my disappointment. Anyways, how do you guys see the spin?

  3. I see both...o.o At first it was anti-clockwise for the longest then it went clockwise.... >_<
  4. o_O

    It's clockwise unless I really concentrate.

    How the.... who the... why.... how HOW??!!
  5. WAHHHHHHHH! I finally saw it rotate counter-clockwise! YAY! my left brain is still alive!

    just as i had suspected, your right brain is very much dominant. ^_^
  6. I see it clockwise too.. but when I am drunk I see it go anti-clockwise! Does that mean I am more logical when drunk?
  7. Ello, is this where I post my character's (An angel) information? Also, are we allowed more than one character?
  8. Yes. You create the profile for your angel here. And you can have more than one character. Lol, we all do.
  9. clockwise only.
  10. I can make it spin both ways. Man, I wish this stuff would come out when I need it to, like at school dangit! D:<
  11. Sakii's brain hurts. The thing is ANTI CLOCKWISE now. It doesn't go back to Clockwise.

  12. ahaha~ same as i was yesterday. but i think you can make it spin both ways... (or at least that's what i want to believe)


    try focusing on the foot's shadow. when you'd notice that it just sways back and forth, you can shift your focus back to the spinning girl, hopefully she'd have changed her rotation by then XD
  13. Entirely right brained- with maybe four of the left brain abilities. :)
  14. hmm~ so you saw it rotating clockwise, no?
  15. philosophy & religion? does that mean i can like one and ignore the other or that i lean towards both?

    HAHAHAHAHA! i have towave my finger anti clockwise, but i can make the harlot change directions!

    *Yes, i did jsut spend around 10 minutes insulting/threatening/growling at my laptop screen to get the wench to spin the other way, but, in the words of larry, I "Git Er Done!"*
  16. I can force myself to percieve it as going in either direction I feel like making it go.

    I still can't figure out how they made this image ._.

    EDIT: Here's how I force myself to percieve it to change direction. (It works with me, perhaps it might work with you guys.)

    To make it spin counter-clockwise, try calculating a math problem. Me, I tried to read and make arguments for posts for no reason than to test.

    To make it go back to spinning clockwise - think of something magical/ a scene from anime or a movie with fantastic elements. Let your imagination run wild.
  17. That makes sense. Again, just throwing out an idea for the GM and everyone to consider, do with it what you may.
  18. Whoa! I found out how to make it change direction at will! Awesome!

    I just watch the feet!


    I tried it Paorou's way just now! Holy shit that works even better!
