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.

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.)
[...] 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 [...]
