A co-worker sent us this image and we wasted an entire morning trying to figure out if the lady in the image above is spinning clockwise or counterclockwise. An Australian newspaper claims that this is a Left brain vs Right brain test.
According to the Herald Sun, almost everybody sees the dancer turning counter-clockwise. However, if you stare at her long enough you can make her change direction. (This is a load of crap because I stared at her for over an hour and she continued to spin clockwise.)
Anyways, if you see her clockwise, then you are a right-brain person and if she is spinning counter-clockwise, then you are a left-brain person. Why is all of this important? Because it determines if you are a touchy-feely person or a cold-hearted person. (According to the test, I?m touchy feely.) The description of both brain types are provided below:
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
