The Right Brain vs Left Brain test ...
Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
From: Herald Sun 2007



If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

The article says that 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..................... RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS

uses logic ....................................... uses feeling
detail oriented ..................................."big picture" oriented
facts rule ......................................... imagination rules
words and language ............................symbols and images
present and past.................................present and future
math and science.................................philosophy & religion
can comprehend..................................can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
knowing........................................... believes
acknowledges.................................... appreciates
order/pattern perception........................spatial perception
knows object name...............................knows object function
reality based......................................fantasy based
forms strategies.................................. presents possibilities
practical............................................ impetuous
safe................................................. risk taking



I have no idea how this works.

I can see where she changes direction, at her waist... however I haven't figured out the timing of this. She is set to make a switch, of this I am sure. I wanna think this is a clever illusion or trick of some kind....
HOWEVER... My sister is standing directly behind me, and while I see her spinning clockwise sis is seeing her ... anti-clockwise. PLUS + when she switched direction ... on me... Sis saw that change as well. Once again we were seeing it oppositely. Not so freaky as totally odd ... About Changing her direction, by will .... ??? I dunno yet. I did try to spin her in the other direction... focusing on her arms.... Confused ... her direction changed.... scratch timing?
How do they do that? How did I do that?


Interesting illusion. Mostly she moves clockwise.... How do you see her? Illusion/trick of the mind ... or what?

This came to me via E-mail... I haven't found anymore information or who it is that created this.... scientist, psychologist or illusionist?

This is getting more and more freaky - Annie and I are both watching the dancer and when I see her going counter-clockwise, Annie sees her going clockwise and vice versa!!!

I think this is absolutely fascinating - thank you, Evie, for sharing this with us.

I can't see anything. Does that mean I haven't got a brain! Shocked Suspect

Well, I suppose that *would* explain a lot. Rolling Eyes lol!

It's more likely to mean your computer hasn't got a brain. Or the necessary RAM, one of the two.

I see it going clockwise, but it's fairly easy to change. Which is odd because if you'd showed me the left/right sided brain traits first, I would have thought I'd be the other one. All mathsy and that.

yeah im clockwise too, but i cant seem to get her to change direction at all. In fact i can't see how anyone could think she was moving anti-clockwise.

oh well, nice post though if you do find anything else out about it please let us know.

OK, that's wierd.

Now it was clockwise, anticlockwise then clockwise. Hmmm.I wonder where I put that gif animation package. It may be how the gif is designed and timed. Sheep Skip

Suspect I am pretty sure there is a timing trick to this....
For me the unexplainable question is .... WHY is it that scratch two people, looking at it at the same time ..... see it differently?

lol! I am right brained... and I don't mind that Jake sees it differently than I do. That rather amuses me. However he is left brained according to this test and he just doesn't believe that I don't understand the difference between clockwise and anti! Confused Which really only serves to add more humor to this test. I see where we each fit on our sides of the lists...now thats eerie... Wink

OoK, do you and Gina see it the same Question

We've sussed it out! It's the pause in the animation. It can help you mentally reset the optical illussion so I don't think it's a trick at all, just a clever use of an image with a well timed pause (albeit a very brief one).

Amazing how someone could come up with something like this. Smile

I can see it clockwise, and I do not see how anyone could think it was counter-clockwise...anyone who sees it counter-clockwise is obviously uncool...

I can't make it change direction at all...

I can see it turn(from facing left) anticlockwise until it faces right when it goes clockwise...
