Right Brain vs Left Brain test

I can only see her moving clockwise!
clipped from www.news.com.au

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.

Cool. I see it going anti-clockwise, but for a couple of very brief moments after concentrating and doing that soft-focus thing, I saw it go clockwise.

My partner, on the other hand, could see it both anti-clockwise and, briefly, clockwise. She's artistic and creative – more right brain, I wager.

By the way, Wadard, I'm tagging you for this animeme that's making its way around, because I'm keen to see what you have to say about animals, esp vis-a-vis global warming.

Or trying looking at it from below.

Whatever, it makes my brain hurt.

There’s a survey to know what is more common, saw her spinning clockwise or anti-clockwise. Here it is:
