Right brain or left brain dominant?

     Okay - this is just plain cool. Go see if you are right brain or left brain dominant. (Click the image to go to the animation.) If the dancer is spinning clockwise, you are right brain dominant. If she's spinning counter-clockwise, you are left brain dominant.
     She spun clockwise for me and staring at her today, I couldn't get her to go counter-clockwise for nuttin' although several of my friends could. So, I took it as confirmation of what I've often suspected - my left brain is in atrophy.
     Thing is, I'm writing this blog on my right screen while the dancer is up on my left screen (I have dual monitors), and y'know what? With my peripheral vision, I can make her go counter-clockwise. That is just so freaking bizarre. What's it all mean?
     Anyhow, you gotta check it out.

Is this for real? I cannot see anything but a clockwise turn. I can't even imagine how to make her turn the other way! It's funny because sometimes I *feel* like I'm more left-brain dominant, but I guess not!

Ok, this is strange. I saw it going clockwise at first and then it changed to counter-clockwise after I read the article and looked back at it. What the heck does that mean?

And I'm freaked because I can only see her anti-clockwise. I thought I would have been more "artsy" than that. hahaha!
Can't make her switch, dangit.

This was really weird. I must have a split personality. For the first two days she spun clockwise...right brain right?.... but on the third day a realized that if I concentrated I could make her turn anit clockwise...nope! But if I looked away for a moment and then peeked out of the corner of my right eye...Voila! she changed her mind, quite like I do from time to time and spun in the other direction. However, if I looked at her full on, she was back to the right brain function. Lots of fun "e".

Well I guess I proved my point with my inside out spelling. Sorry for the errors, it's all HER fault.

When I first looked, she was spinning clockwise, then whenever I looked down at my trackpad for a few seconds, then back up, she would flip. Maybe it has something to do with refocusing eyes. But then I'm doing mono-vision (one contact near, one contact far) so my brain is all screwed up anyway.

Weird! When I first looked at the image it spinning clock-wise, but as I was reading the list explaining right vs. left it changed direction. (Only when I'm not actually looking at it!) Then when I'd focus on the image going counter-clock-wise, after a few seconds, it would change back!

Hmmm, maybe dual brain users use one side for concentrating and one for the subconscious.

Fun stuff!

Me too! When I first looked she was spinning counter clockwise. I thought, "Man, I'm left-brained?" Then I glanced at the l.b. list, and when I looked back, she was spinning the other way! Too weird!
I like Gail's explanation of being dual-brained. I've always had extremely high verbal skills. ;P)

It was clockwise for me from the start! No way could I get her to spin counter-clockwise!
