Is your brain working the left or the right?

If you see this lady turning in clockwise you are using your right brain. If you see it the other way, you are using left brain. Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.





See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain's current.
BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN






Experimentation has shown that the two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking. The following table illustrates the differences between left-brain and right-brain thinking: Left Brain Right BrainLogical Random
Sequential Intuitive
Rational Holistic
Analytical Synthesizing
Obejctive Subjective
Looks at parts Looks at wholes

Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking. Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain ones. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics, feeling, and creativity

OK, I've done this on Facebook a jillion times and most of the time she is going counter clockwise for me. Today however, she is going clockwise. Dunno, this is weird. My husband and one daughter see her change direction in the middle of things. YIKES! I guess I'm mostly left brained but today am in a right brain frame of mind.

That is a good thing TATT

Alix, my husband saw her going counter, then all of a sudden she went clockwise and he couldn't get her to go back.
I can make her change, but, I have to grab the scroller, can't use the wheel on the mouse because the jerking motion messes it up, then scroll down to just her foot and the swinging foot can only be seen when it is in the front and back.

I just about went dizzy making her change directions. At first I thought it was a joke and just switched directions every so often, but then I found if I looked at the edges of the figure, she would switch directions.

I see both directions and like Alix stated, I see her change directions... is that the right fighting with the left or vice versa?

I saw her going clockwise for a long time and all of a sudden she went counter clockwise for just a few seconds. Weird
