There are a couple of problems I see with this “test” posted by the Herald Sun in Australia.
THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test … do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.
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.
First, they forgot to define the frame of reference. We can only infer they mean counterclockwise â€” looking down at the dancer from above.
Secondly, I don’t believe anyone can see this dancer turning clockwise (right twist). Yeesh. I FINALLY got her to change directions. I stared at the bottom foot only (as many had suggested) and she suddenly switched directions.
UPDATE – Immediately after posting this, people began responding they can see the image turning clockwise (right twist), turning towards the right shoulder.
Perhaps it really does work.
If you can, I expect you must be
delusional, not right-brained. (Leave a comment below.)
