right brain left brain

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.

I thought this was very cool.
I can change the direction at will.
Can you?

Clockwise, but I don't see myself as a right brained person. I'm a horrible artist!

Would only go clockwise or "right" forever for me...

I was worried since I spent my entire office professional life (before sales and running a company) doing physics, math, computer programming...

Then... I looked down for a second and it went "anti clockwise", then clockwise, then anti-clockwise and back and forth several times in 5 seconds...

FREAKY when it flips back and forth so quickly... once your mind figures out how to do it.

I am having trouble figuring out how this illusion actually works...

It is pure clockwise for me

Nobody in their right mind would describe me as being artistic!!!!!!!!!

She will go which ever way I want. Something unusual among women.

I couldn't get her to do more than one revolution in the same direction. Usually half a turn to the profile position then change direction. So what does that mean.
I know I used to be indecisive and now I am not sure but this is rediculous.

Am I the only one who got this:
You count the number of turns one way and the number of turns the other way.
The pattern repeats itself so I figured there was a code.
The sequence of numbers turns out to be her telephone number. I dialled it and we are going for a drink tonight.
Of course it won't work again as she only wanted to meet the first guy who could work it out. She has now made it random again.
We are going to be a such great match and although she has a cat, she is OK with monos.

BTW, could you all limit your perving (just a bit) on my new girl.
