Right side, making ti go anti clockwise would be hard.

This has nothing to do with "thinking with the right or left side of your brain". That's been a popular myth (http://www.theness.com/neurologicablog/?p=27) about it, but anyone with a little bit of knowledge about the brain would know that it doesn't work that way. It is merely an optical illusion, and for those interested, here's the "solution (http://files.noctifer.net/spinningdancer.gif)".

I first saw it clocwise, then i changed it to be anti clockwise

I've seen this a few times. I nearly always see it going clockwise, but if I look long enough it changes. Good illusion. :tmb:

I thought it was a gif that changes, lol. :p

I remember posting that illusion a long ago. I can make my eyes watch her go both ways, but at some points it's difficult to change modes. :D

I wonder if the author was being clever by just saying most people see her go ant-clockwise, so you'll feel all special when you see her going clockwise :p

Probably - and it worked. :p

AntiClockwise.

She's spins one way and then the other for me, like she can't decide! :p

What does that say about me? :p

Clockwise for me, but I manage to see her go counter clock wise for a few seconds or split seconds

My right apparently.
Reading the descriptions, I'd say I'd use my left side more, however.

Dear Lord this is driving me insane. :tea: When I first looked at it it was going anti-clockwise, now it's clock-wise and I can't get it to change back. :vlol: I'd say I'm really more of a right brained person, but use logic when needed. ...Okay, at this point I'm forever doomed to see it turn clock-wise. So right brained...

Edit: AHA! I got it to go anti-clockwise again! :cool: ...Aaaaand it's back to clockwise. *is being very easily amused*

Edit again: AHA! IT's RIGGED! It has to be!

I remember I managed to teach myself to see it go either way just by blinking. Yeh sad I spent awhile trying to do it ;)
Now I have to get the corner of my right eye to see it spin the other way, from clockwise.

This has nothing to do with "thinking with the right or left side of your brain". That's been a popular myth (http://www.theness.com/neurologicablog/?p=27) about it, but anyone with a little bit of knowledge about the brain would know that it doesn't work that way.

Actually I found that if I shouted out mathematical equations, it spun anti-clockwise. Then if I shouted out religion stuff, it goes clockwise.
Then again psychological stuff happens :)

Clockwise first, then anticlockwise, then back to clockwise again.

Exactly the same with me.

When I first saw it, she went counter-clockwise, then quickly changed to clockwise...so weird...
