Which way does she turn for you?

Which way does she turn for you? This is really amazing.
Read the information below. This will drive people crazy for hours.

The Lighter Side

If you see this lady turning in clockwise you are using your right brain.
If you see it her tuning the other way, you are using left brain.
Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.

See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain's current.


BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN.

Experimentation has shown that the two different sides or hemispheres of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking. The following table illustrates the differences between left-brain and right-brain thinking:

Left Brain ............................Right Brain
Logical..................................Random
Sequential.............................Intuitive
Rational.................................Holistic
Analytical..............................Synthesizing
Objective..............................Subjective
Looks at parts........................Looks at wholes

Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking. Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain activities. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical

I first encountered this in October of last year. I've found that if I concentrated my view on the shadows created by her feet, that I could reverse the direction of her spin. Don't know why that works but give it a try.

She was going counter clockwise and I was wondering why it wouldn't work both ways for me then I decided to shift perspective. I started watching her feet and she spun the other way.

I can't make her stop moving counter clock wise. I think I will have a few drinks tonight and try it again.

Started out clockwise then got her to switch to counter clockwise, now she's oscillating back and forth. Can switch her pretty much at will.

First was clockwise but after looking at her feet she began turning counter CW. Now she changes direction randomly.

It just means that the right side of your brain is dominant. Are you left handed by chance?

If I stare at the feet, it will start turning in the other direction.

Yup...99% left handed.

But this is insane!!! After two solid days of seeing her go ONLY clockwise, last night she switched and went the other way for me, actually, back and forth, back and forth. I have to say, this is really cool!!

I had her going only counter clockwise, now this morning she's going clockwise. Maybe I'm just out of my mind today.

Crazy, She actually changes feet when she spins the other way! Nuts! Mostly counter-clockwise, I can "make her" switch the other way, but its hard.

I can only see her going clock-wise and I am about as right-hand dominant as you can get (can't even pick my nose left handed!)
