    Clockwise Or Anticlockwise?

    Do you see the dancer in the picture [attached] turning clockwise or anti-clockwise? Apparently it tells us something about brain function.

    I saw her tuning clockwise at first, but was able to see the opposite rotation also.

    There is another site here with more of an 'ongoing' discussion: Link

    I can see both, but initially see clockwise and have to concentrate to go anti-clockwise.

    Likewise I can see both directions of rotation after a bit of thought. Saw the same thing a while ago on a radio site here:

    A larger one is currently right at the bottom of the page with some 'supposed' information about it.

    Started anti-clockwise, then concentrated and got it to go the other way. Can change it at will

    I think it depends on what you first see, at first I could only see clockwise, but then if I looked away and looked back at a certain point i saw anti-clockwise

    Only clockwise for me, no matter how hard I try, which according to the site means right-brained... not what I would have classed myself!

    I FINALLY GOT IT TO CHANGE!

    it wouldn't stop going clockwise
    then kept looking away and blurring my vision and everything and finally got it to go anti-clockwise!

    that's not the idea of it is it?

    Also, why is she naked?

    If she was wearing some sort of top then the under side of the breasts wouldn't be so defined... it'd just blend with her stomach..


    and yes, I was paying to much attention

    Clockwise mainly.

    Then I went to the website and while I was reading the explanation I flicked my eyes to the it and she was going anti clockwise.
