    As seen in the Herald Sun -> 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

    Why exactly do you want her to go "the other way" - is it a genetic thing?

    i think when this was first printed in the Herald Sun, it would be easy to imagine the dancer moving in either direction. However being animated in the on-line version I can't see it going anti-clockwise when it is so clearly clockwise

    Every time I look at her, she's spinning in the other direction. Can't get her to seem to spin in only one direction.

    Easy to accomplish. Look at her and decide which way she is spinning. Then scroll down and imagine her still spinning in the same direction. Then, imagine her spinning in the opposite direction. Then while thinking that, scroll up and look at her. You will then see her spinning in the direction you were last imagining. Easy peesy.

    Another tip. If you look at the bottom right corner of the pic it's easier to get her to spin anti-clock wise. Top left = other way around.

    Hey thanks Gali, looking at the bottom right worked for me...

    Lol @ palmerc. Once you get it to go the other way it will be so clearly anti-clockwise... ;) Sure when you stare at it going clockwise it just seems biased and there's no way it's going anti-clockwise...

    Showed this to a colleague at work, i then went to stand with them and looked from further away and i found i could make the dancer change direction quite easily.

    Yes, we are really busy at work.

    Yes, this admission is rather sad.:)
