    Left or Right?

    Post by wprager on Fri Jul 09, 2010 4:57 pm

    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.

    LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
      uses logic
      detail oriented
      facts rule
      words and language
      present and past
      math and science
      can comprehend
      knowing
      acknowledges
      order/pattern perception
      knows object name
      reality based
      forms strategies
      practical
      safe

    RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
      uses feeling
      "big picture" oriented
      imagination rules
      symbols and images
      present and future
      philosophy & religion
      can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
      believes
      appreciates
      spatial perception
      knows object function
      fantasy based
      presents possibilities
      impetuous
      risk taking

    No, it doesn't. There are 34 frames in the GIF file, and I sat there watching it rotate 19 times in the same direction, then I placed my laptop sideways and for a while it appeared to be going in the other direction. There's no way 34 frames would be enough to have the image rotate 19 times one way and then switch.

    Would that mean then it shouldn't appear to be going in the same direction to two different people watching at the same time on the same screen?

    It's normal. If you can control the "spin" then that would probably be less common.

    However Wikipedia says that it's incorrect to assume that right-brain versus left-brain has to do with the apparent direction of rotation:

    I see it going clockwise but that is probably because I'm a south paw.

    I'm not, and I see it going clockwise (mostly).

    By the way, I'm impressed. Seven posts before anyone mentioned nipples. The maturity level on this site is going up.

    Counter-clockwise for me at first, but I can flip it back and forth.
