Which way?

Is she going clockwise or counter-clockwise?

Melle, Andrew and I all see clockwise, and I have no idea how anyone could see counter-clockwise. Freaky.

    I have no idea how anyone can see clockwise. Really? Hee! I can’t force myself to see it going that way no matter what I do.

    I think we just discovered that there really ARE two kinds of people! I always loved that joke: there are two kinds of people in the world. People who think there are two kinds of people in the world, and people who know better.

    I’ve come to think that’s it’s not an optical illusion – like the lady/vase thing. It’s a fundamental orientation, inside your brain!

    I’m clearly a Gemini. We see both sides to everything. I’m surprised Melle didnt’t see the same.

    I had her dancing left and right — but not doing full revolutions. It was like those highland dancers…

    Or maybe I drank too much wine?

    Kate and I both looked at it and pronounced it clockwise – and then it seemed to switch and we both saw it counter-clockwise. Are we geniuses? Is it all a hoax? History will decide!

    A bunch of the WNET girls saw her going both ways. Apparently she tends to go clockwise if you look right at her, and counter-clockwise if you look at her peripherally. (Not for me, though.) So far not many people who can only see her going counter-clockwise, and only one for whom she doesn’t spin at all.

    Iiiiiinteresting… (And by that I mean the rest of you are freaks.)

  6. [...] the famous “turning girl” test, no contest I was seeing her spin clockwise, and therefore was right-brain dominant. I think this just shows that I’m getting my logic on [...]
