ARE YOU RIGHT OR LEFT BRAINED?

I have done this several times today and always has been clockwise --- except right after I spent 15 minutes doing a crossword puzzle. Weird huh!

I think she may have been dancing outside in the cold.

Way cool! I'm mostly right brained, but I can make her change direction if I really focus on it.

Clockwise/right-brained for me, but I already knew that about myself. Thanks Penn.

The dancer changes direction, with or without me concentrating I watched it and it does actually switch direction, in equal intervals

She definitely changes directions. She was going clockwise for me and counter clockwise for my son and the opposite when she changed for us both. Go figure.

That's what my girlfriend said, it was going counter clockwise for her most of the time, but once in awhile would briefly change directions. I stared at it forever and couldn't see it change even when she said, "Did you see it?"....hmmmm....am I blind or something?

This is pretty much a rigged test.

When I look at the image of the dancer, she is almost always moving clockwise. That's because the right half of the brain processes symbols and images.

When I read the explanatory text on the page and glance at the dancer with my peripheral vision, she's almost always moving counter-clockwise. That's because the left brain processes language.

When I use my male brain, I can sometimes make out her nipples.

I'm the same as you Larrybus....in Paragraphs 2 and 3
Straight on is clockwise....and peripheral is counter
clockwise
But when I read Para 4....I wondered exactly how many
brains you have????

I'm so glad you posted this. I hadn't seen it in a couple of years and just last week was trying to describe it to someone. Very timely.

No, the graphic does not change directions. Yes, your brain changes your perception of the direction. Like Knerd, I also can change the direction at will.

Musicians do march to the beat of a different drum.

I was able to see both directions...when I was reading the text to the left of the image I could "see" her change directions in the periphery...

Well...I have not taken this particular test yet, but I've taken other right brain/left brain tests, and I've always had the same results; It depends on the task. But I'm basically a balance of right and left brained. So now I'm gonna see what THIS tests has to say. Does this test say you have to be one or the other, I wonder?
I will see, I guess!

I saw her counter clockwise the whole time til I started reading and then peripherally saw her go clockwise. Now I have a headache.
