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

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?

Yeah. I see it clockwise. ONLY clockwise.

But then I read the descriptions for left and right brain functions. I SUCK AT MATH AND LOGIC. And I'm pretty much USELESS at strategy (say hello to the suckiest person on WARCRAFT III ever!)

So yes. Clockwise. O_o;1lkajsdflkjasdflkj!!

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?

It keeps... switching. Most of the time it's clockwise, but it keeps switching.

I think it makes sense. I'm naturally more right-brained, but my life-experiences have forced me to exercise the left.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
clockwise only.

Sakii's brain hurts. The thing is ANTI CLOCKWISE now. It doesn't go back to Clockwise.

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

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.

I can will it to spin counter-clockwise, but only if I concentrate. The moment I break my concentration, it goes back to clockwise.

But I did notice that she has nipples.


Oh hey, they're spinning!

Whoa! I found out how to make it change direction at will! Awesome!

I just watch the feet!




EDIT

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