Default Left Brain or Right

Hi guys,

I found this interesting, try it out and lets see what the result is..

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test | PerthNow

For starters,

I could see the lady turn clockwise initially but then later on I could see it turn the other way round too!, it was a bit difficult cuz I had to concentrate hard but eventually I succeeded.

Cheers,
Shrey

Default sculpted

All I saw was a nicely sculpted rear deck and a nice pair of pouting headlights. Was there something else?

This is a waste of timer & i do feel very very sorry for the folks who said that they can see it both ways. there is only one direction that this figure swings & that is clockwise. Basically this was spread around the internet to see who actually is that stupid to acknowledge that he can see something that is not there by saying that he concentrated hard etc.


essentially it has been ssj & shan2nu, whats up guys ??

I waived the actual test. As Dan pointed out.. its a good 'figure' to study..
no offense meant to anyone..

And here I was... wondering why I couldn't see it turning the other way around, no matter how hard I tried!

Every now and then that chick's direction of spin does change, nothing in the mind. You succeeded in not being able to spot that.

Not true. The spinning does reverse. Watch long enough. But it is a con, so can't blame the poor guys who do see her swirling in different directions.

Thanks for making me watch it for long, i could not see the anti-clockwise direction for a long time until i turned my head to one side & took a sneak at the black beauty side on & then imagined that it could be true & there it was. takes some doing which i was not prepared to do in the first instance.

People, turn to your extreme right or left & take a peek, that is what got me to change. cheers

We don't know which direction the girl is actually rotating but the direction isn't changing. Thats why it's called an illusion. Hehe

You can even try it at home. Rotate any object in your house and watch the shadow on the wall, you can see the object's shadow turning in both directions where as in realilty, it's only turning in one direction.
