    Clockwise at first, but can change it over...
    My daughter was looking over my shoulder and started arguing "how is that clockwise?" as she could only see anti-clockwise.

    She has now seen it both ways, but ant-clockwise predominates...

    It took me ages to see anything other than 2 interpretations of 1 static image anyway, maybe I was too concerned for her poor twisted ankle.

    Once I did manage to see them as change I see switches of images but my brain doesn't seem to interpret them as moving.

    Not sure what that says about my brain though.

    My son cannot bear looking at this as it keeps changing direction for him, she keeps swinging back and forth, rarely completing a full revolution...

    Not sure what this says about him!

    For me it's anti-clockwise if I look at the foot and clockwise if I look at the leg.

    This was a featured article on Wikipedia a few months back...

    The Spinning Dancer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It did my head in then. The last time I looked at it I managed to work out how to control the direction she dances in.

    Heres another one....

    Stare at it and the cube flips it's position.

    I can see both and can change the direction at will, altho once those 3 gif's above load it grinds my laptop to a halt and its a powerful laptop too!

    I can see anti-clockwise only. Only with DaveP's version can I see both. Maybe it's more to do with how the brain processes colour?

    I saw clockwise if I looked straight at it but in my peripheral vision it was anti-clockwise

    The colour coded ones above cleared it up for me. If you percieve it as her spinning on her right leg, she goes clockwise. If you see it as her left leg shes standing on, she goes anticlockwise. Before the colour coded ones I could only see clockwise. Now I can see either just by thinking about her left and right legs

    Could only see clockwise at first - but then with a lot of concentration I changed it to anti-clockwise. Now I can change back and forth fairly easily.

    Now: The clockwise or anticlockwise cat.


    When I first saw it the cat was going anti-clockwise. Apparently you can make him switch by thinking about his tail. At the moment I can only make him switch in my peripheral vision.

    Note: For those that are interested/concerned about this I selected the cat's gender by looking at the picture and thinking "looks like a tom to me"

    Both the dancer and the cat seem to switch around randomly for me...
