No matter how hard I looked, I coulnd’t get it to go the other way…looks like my answer is clear! LOL.

Thanks for sharing that it was too cool!

I saw it clockwise too, though I would’ve figured myself for a left-brained person. I have to concentrate to get it to go the other way!

I can’t get it to go the other way, either! I’ve always known I was strongly right-brained though. Mr. Chickadee, though, is  as left-brained as they come!

At first glance, I saw it clockwise, and then it changed! Now I can only see it counter-clockwise and can’t get it to go back the other way…  what does that mean?

If I look away, I see it going the other way. I wonder what that means…

I think because there are no depth cues, you can’t really tell if the person is facing you or facing away so depdning on which one your mind decides that it is, it makes them look like they are going clockwise or counterclockwise. If you look at still frames of the image, you can see that at any point, you could interpret that the person is both facing away from you and facing towards you. Looking at different parts of the body allows your mind to somewhat reset its perspective, if you do not make the assumption that it is looking towards you then you may see it looking away from you. Some people don’t see it because they stare at it. If you stare directly at it, your mind won’t want to accept a different interpretation because it is working strongly on the assumption that it is moving in a certain direction.

Saw it clockwise, though anybody who knows me will tell you I’m about as left-brained as they come!  Guess my wires are just crossed 😀

i can only see it turn clockwise.  how did some of you see it counter-clockwise?  to me the raised foot is clearly sweeping right to left.

Hah, I feel dizzy too!  I could only see it clockwise, try as I might…then I scrolled down to read the rest of the list informing me of my right-brained traits (also funny b/c some are totally true, but I am SOOOO not good at spatial orientation — I’m one of those always walking into the table), and I saw only the feet twirling…and just like Kiwi, boom!  I saw her goin’ the other way!  And then I "switched" it back, and now even when I scroll back and look at the feet, I can only see it clockwise again.

Anybody notice that in the link Mrs Spider posted, people are saying that the opposite is true? (clockwise = left brained, counter clockwise = right brained).  Wonder which one it ‘really’ is?

so i came home and looked at this again and now i can see both counter clockwise and clockwise.  the trick is the sit far away at least 2 feet and start at the foot that is straight.  take notice of the direction, then look away, blink a few times and look at the straight foot again – MAGIC she turns the opposite direction.

 

but now my question is- is this animated gif a hoax?  i mean, was it created to turn BOTH ways?
