    Right or Left Brained

    Have a good look at the picture below.

    Do you see the dancer moving clockwise or anti-clockwise?

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

    According to the article, most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise.

    You can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

    Which way does it go for you? (Try it with at least one other person to REALLY be freaked out!)

    Now think of this in terms of taking a statement from a witness at a crime scene. Might be why some say 'black' and some swear it was 'white' etc.





    And depending on which way you see her turn, here's a thumbnail sketch of yourself....

    LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS (She spins anti clockwise)
    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 (She spins clockwise)
    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
    I see her turning clockwise, anyone see her turning counter-clockwise?

    Left brain for me

    I just wish she'd turn with the lights on.


    But it changes direction every 30 bounces or so. So just a trick, sorry.

    If I look off to the side in my limited periphial vision she turns counter-clockwise, but as soon I look directly at her it's back to clockwise

    Oh yes. It does that too. Perhaps I just wasted my time counting the bounces. Oh well, not the first time I've wasted seconds off my life. But enough about my sex life.

    Um... everyone got me thinking sexual here so I see, well it must be cold where she is. I can get her to turn both ways, Okay now that sounds bad, but I can get her to do what I want. To bad this does not work for me in real life!

    With my eyes I can make her switch directions every turn if I wanted to. Actually, I can make it so that it's switching directions without her making a complete turn. I'm pretty sure that it's not a trick just from what I'm seeing with my own eyes.

    She's going counterclockwise and there's no way I can make her go clockwise.

    Unlike in real life I can make her go anyway I want. Now if this will just work on my wife and my 17-month old daughter I've got it made!

    Clockwise to start with but she kept switching if I glanced away then looked back.

    If I look at her..ah, head she is turning counter clock wise. If I look at her feet it's clockwise.
    The opinions of my posts are the sole responsibilty of my employer due to the fact that they have totally and completely warped my mind.

    She was turning both clockwise and counter clockwise with counter clockwise being the stronger of the two...What does that mean ?.

    You would be astonished at how many right-brains are attracted to law enforcement. Those of you who can see her turning both ways are right-brain dominant but with very little left-brain deficit. Right-brains make up about three percent of the world population but make up a significant portion of the "adventure" careers. Cops, soldiers etc.

    I have a great right-brain test which works every time. It is a list of about 60 questions and the questions also tend to give you some insight into yourself if you are right-brain dominant.

    Right-brained. Knew that some time ago. Sometimes it's a drag when surrounded by left-brained people.
