    LOL, I used to print this on paper and show it to people. Interesting how the brain, genetically and through experiences, fills in optical data we receive from our eyes.

    And this is true of other senses we have too.

    P.S. No Superman, it's not a trick with the monitor/computer... I told you we all see things!

    The spinning dancer was created by Japanese web designer Nobuyuki Kayahara in 2003, and since the early 2000s, it has gained popularity as a way to determine whether or not people are right-brain (creative) or left-brain (logical) dominant. Viewers are told that if they view the dancer as standing on her left leg and spinning clockwise, then they are right-brain dominant, and if they see the reverse (the dancer standing on her right leg and spinning counter-clockwise), then they are left-brain dominant.

    Huh... can't see this as standing on her right leg and spinning counter clockwise. Fun fact, I would not necessarily call myself creative... not at all :eek:

    I saw/see both. Was clearly seeing her on right foot going counter-clockwise, then it switched to left cc. Not sure if thats a deliberate switch in the gif or something mental.

    It is your brain extrapolating info. I too can watch it and get it to turn both ways but dominantly it's clockwise for me. In reality, it's a changing 2D picture and not spinning at all ; )

    You can make it switch by closing your eyes and "blinking them open" at about 2Hz. At some point, it will switch direction and you can keep your eyes open. It will stay that way until you do the "2Hz blinking" trick again.

    hehe that worked briefly, until I tried to do it again, now it doesn't switch anymore. The right side is too strong in this one, aparently.

    The only difference is how your mind sees the lines, and can change the direction.

    The Mentat mantra sprang to my mind when seeing this solution...

    "...It is by will alone I set my mind in motion..."
