This fun visual test will finally put your mind to rest… C’mon admit it, you simply can’t last another day without knowing which side of your brain dictates your thinking.
.

If you see the girl turning clockwise, your right hemisphere dominates:
You are highly creative, you use your imagination, feelings and perception of space, you are sensitive to symbols and images, you enjoy exploring the future and thinking philosophically…
.

If you see the girl turning anti clockwise, you use your left hemisphere:

You are a logical thinker, you rely on realism, words and language. you are attracted by maths and science, knowledge, and specifics.
.

If you manage to see it turning in the both directions:
You are a genius… ( I tried and tried, I even stood on my head and viewed it through a mirror)
.

And if you don’t see it move at all:
You are either brain dead or you need a new computer.

What’s all this got to do with business? Probably nothing but I thought it was a bit of fun and now I can wrap my right hemisphere up in cotton wool to protect it from you nasty, logical lefties.

I can make her go both directions..forwards and backwards..I just focus on her turning when she is aligned and shake my head the other direcdtion and htink she is turning the other direction ..relax... and it jumps the other wya..the trick is to do it at the point that the shadow is aligned and you cna't see the leg sticking out..foucs on the center and move your mind and even physically your head the other way as she turns and after a couple tries she will jump th eother way.

I don't think it makes you a genius, though..just somebody who'se brain can "jump"

my first impression is clockwise, though

Focus on her foot on the gorund alone and tell it to "switch the other way"..it does eventually

when that doesn't work..because my brain wants to amke her go clockwise, when her outswing leg is on the left I tell myself this way and imagine it is swinging in front of her not behind her at that point..I even have to swish my arms (the direction I am imaging it will go) to make it happen..but it does.

Without serious conscious effort on my part, though..it switches back to clockwise

huh..after a bit of practice you can make it go back and fourth by closing one eye (close right eye for counter clockwise, left eye for clockwise) and swishing your hand in front of your face the direction you want it to go

you can actually feel your brain/perception jumping..cool

Personally, I don't think this test reveals which hemisphere is dominant or is indicative of genius...but it is kinda cool.

I don't think it can tell us that. Bionic is right, focus on the foot bouncing up and down. Watch for a minute, look at the bouncing foot, look away, then look back. The dancer switches directions.

And I KNOW I'm NO GENIUS. So, it's just an optical illusion. But it is cool to make her change directions. :shock:
Dawkins thinks belief in God is an excuse to evade thinking in the scientific world. Sadly, he is ignorant to the list of christian scientists who have contributed & founded many of the sciences he himself believes in. How ironic.

yep

Who would want to be a genius anyway, as it and insanity are close to one another? :shock:

When I first looked at it without reading anything, she was spinning counterclockwise.

Then after reading a few lines of your post, I looked at her again and she was spinning clockwise and I couldn't force myself to see otherwise.

Odd!

Pretty cool animation.

Pick the one you like most, my dear. 8-)

frost·ed
1. Covered in tiny ice crystals
2. Covered or decorated in icing
3. Covered with a rough, speckled surface
4. Angered or upset

Bionic,

I didn't realize that Stereo MC's had any hits other than "get connected"

OR maybe this is a different band
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kezbMtlwW5Q

I LOVE this song.. The word connected... Means a lot to me.

"See through you..." Could mean I use your eyes to see (reminds me of the 13th floor scenario). Could mean I don't believe your BS.

Ah ah
Something ain't right
I'm gonna get myself
I'm gonna get myself
I'm gonna get myself connected
I ain't gonna go blind
For the light which is reflected
I see thru you
I see thru you
I see thru you
I see thru you
Ya dirty tricks
Ya make me sick
I see thru you
I see thru you
I'm gonna do it again
I'm gonna do it again
Ah ah
I'm gonna do it again
Gotta do right
'Cause something ain't right
Gotta do right
Come on
If you make sure you're connected
The writing's on the wall
But if your mind's neglected
Stumble you might fall
Stumble you might fall
Stumble you might fall
Ah ah
Ain't gonna go blind
I see thru you
I see thru you
I'm gonna get myself
I'm gonna get myself
I'm gonna get myself connected
I ain't gonna go blind
For the light that is reflected
Hear me out
Can ya hear me out
Can ya hear me out
Do it again
Do it again
Do it again
Do it again
I wanna do it again
I wanna do it again
I wanna do it again
Ya terrified
Ain't gonna go blind
Ain't gonna go blind
Here we go
If you make sure you're connected
The writing's on the wall
But if your mind's neglected
Stumble you might fall
Stumble you might fall
Hear me out
Stumble you might fall
Interstate 5
Stayin' alive
Won't someone try
Open up your eyes
You must be blind
If you can't see
The gaping hole
Called reality
Wanna do it again
I gonna gonna do it again
I wanna do it again
Come on
I'm gonna do it again
Hear me out
Terrified
Something ain't right
Here we go
If you make sure you're connected
The writing's on the wall
But if your mind's neglected
Stumble you might fall
Stumble you might fall
Stumble you might fall
