I stare and stare and, bugger me, she just goes clockwise. Does anyone see different? I must be very, very right-brained!

I can make her go both ways. original.gif

All the things listed under left side describe me to a tee.... But the dancer is only going clockwise to me

Very cool. I can turn her both ways as well but can't figure out how that is at all possible. original.gif

I stare and stare at her and she is going clockwise but when I look left to read the text I can see her switch directions in my peripheral vision. If , after watching her go anti-clockwise, I look elsewhere (not reading) she will change back again.

I'm quite pleased but not at all sure what it means. Indecisive brain that doesn't like to be watched?

Just clockwise. I've been trying really hard to see it the other way but I can't.

#9 Feral_Pooks

This is the point where I admit I've been staring at her for about 15 minutes and was hoping you would all say "yea she just goes clockwise it's a joke" Tounge1.gif

You clever ppl.

#10 Yomumma

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:30 PM

Anti-clockwise, then she started going clockwise.

#11 leosmum

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:32 PM

I can only see her going clockwise so must be in your camp, OP! I wonder if it's actually a credible test?! Fascinating if it is.

I've been staring for a while & can only see clockwise.
I am also left-handed, pretty sure my right side is quite dominant!

#13 Jupiter123

Both ways, but what the hell is with her nipples? They are so pointy and out there lol

#14 Feral_Pooks

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:35 PM

I have no idea if it's credible. Interesting, though, how we are all looking at the same thing and see totally different things happening!

Can anyone tell me a trick to turn her? It's bugging me

Eta. I didn't even notice the nipples. I really am not left brained at all Tounge1.gif

Both ways. But my she is perky.

#16 bailee

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:40 PM

When I first looked at her she went anti clockwise but now I can only see her clockwise. Read the description for clockwise and that is not me at all.

#17 Bazinga

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:40 PM

Both ways but mainly clockwise. I can get her to turn if I look above my screen and unfocus my eyes.

Try putting her in your peripheral vision and do something else. She'll swap for me if I look past he laptop screen and at the TV. I can see her flick into the opposite direction when I do this.

#19 Riotproof

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:41 PM

She goes clockwise, for me. I can make her go bit, but it takes a lt of concentration.q

#20 -Emissary-

Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:44 PM

I can get her to go both ways and flipped a few times.

Though my eyes hurt. It requires too much concentration to change her. I have to kind of move my eyes back and forth at a much faster pace than she is so that suddenly she seems to only be swinging her arms around from side to side and then switch her.

Takes too much bloody effort.

Interesting though. The left brain function describes me but I'm a very emotional and imaginative person.

#21 bush lawyer

Posted 04 February 2013 - 11:00 PM

Both but I kind of go cross eyed to make her switch directions.  I look at her straight leg and foot and can't see how she could possibly go in another direction then all of a sudden she does lol

#22 CallMeFeral

Posted 04 February 2013 - 11:01 PM

I swear it's a hoax and they have her changing direction!

She goes clockwise for me for the most part, although it flips. But that description doesn't describe me.

#23 lizzzard

Posted 04 February 2013 - 11:06 PM

My naturally I see her going anti-clockwise. It's really really hard to make her go clockwise but I think I have done it before.

#24 Honey Pot

Posted 04 February 2013 - 11:11 PM

She's going clockwise for me now but a few years ago I managed to get her to switch but then somehow I could never get her to go back the other way again.

#25 asanil

Posted 04 February 2013 - 11:26 PM

Only clockwise for me at first.

Managed to switch by covering the image with my hand and slowly reveal her by moving my hand to the right.
