Putting your head in a spin.

A cool optical illusion or a computer gimmick. which way is this dancer rotating?

The theory is according to Geoff of Geofftech.

If you see it spinning clockwise, then you are a ‘right sided’ brain person, who uses feeling, is ‘big picture’ orientated and your imagination rules you.

If you see it spinning anti-clockwise, then you are a ‘left sided’ brain person who uses logic, is detail orientated and facts rule.

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.

So do you see clockwise or anti-clockwise? Are you left or right minded?

So give it a spin and let me know in the comments?.

ps its clockwise for me – most of the time

  1. Nope, can’t get it to go any direction other than clockwise. I’m going to stop trying now before my brain starts to hurt.

  2. Try focusing only on the extended foot, or tipping your head to one side. It will appear that she is actually turning 90 degress left, then 90 degrees right, over and over.
