Right or Left

I love this one (stolen from News Corp)

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.

Anti clockwise, and then changed to clockwise.

That's so cool!

I see it going clockwise, I try and try to see counter-clockwise and I can't. Crazy.

You know what's really wierd? Today I came on your blog, and I can't see it going counter-clockwise to save my life!! How do we explain that (could my left side work better when I've had a glass or two of wine, LOL)?

...This is driving me crazy. I can do it both ways, too. I just switch which leg I think is in front, and I make it the back leg...and she instantly changes direction. But when I blinked, it was going clockwise again!
