    The Brain Test. Left or Right - What Side Are You??

    Found this little test over the weekend. Thought it was pretty interesting.

    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



    For some reason the image goes really slow in Chrome, works best in Firefox, it should be moving pretty fast.

    LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS

    uses logic
    detail oriented
    facts rule
    words and language
    present and past
    math and science
    can comprehend
    knowing
    acknowledges
    order/pattern perception
    knows object name
    reality based
    forms strategies
    practical

    RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS

    uses feeling
    "big picture" oriented
    imagination rules
    symbols and images
    present and future
    philosophy & religion
    can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
    believes
    appreciates
    spatial perception
    knows object function
    fantasy based
    presents possibilities
    impetuous
    risk taking
    safe



    For me it is going clockwise.

    Be aware, there is no right or wrong answer. Just whatever you see.

    I can make it switch at will. Just concentrate at the shadow and you'll get it.

    What do you base that assumption on? Please refrain from making uneducated guesses in the future my friend, it really shows your immaturity.

    You cant make it turn the other way unless you concentrate really hard, it'll just turn around clockwise or anti-clockwise depending on what part of the brain you use.

    Just depends on what side of your brain is more prominent.

    Try this.

    Cover the whole girl with a piece of paper so you can't see her, only leave the shadow of her foot and see what way she is turning from that. Then slowly move the piece of paper up her body revealing more of her.

    Whoaaaaa. Thats trippy.

    I see both mixed together. Sometimes it moves clockwise and sometimes it moves counter-clockwise. I can pretty much make it turn different ways. Really cool.

    This reminds me of my art teacher who always talk about left and right sides of the brain.

    Can get both if I concentrate hard enough. First time I did this test it switched without me trying, thought it was a trick or something.

    LoL.

    Now I see it go clockwise half way and then stop and go counter-clockwise. It just goes back and forth, really cool.

    Did this like a year ago in Psychology. It's not really to do with left/right sided at all, it just measures perception. Fun though.

    I see it going clock-wise and have to concentrate really hard for ages to make it go counter-clockwise. After that I can switch it at will.

    I can switch between the two. Not really sure what that means, but I can do it.

    At the start, it was turning clockwise for me, so that means Im using my right side of my brain. But then I look away for a minute and its turning anti-clockwise.

    Now I can switch them off by just focusing down at the shadow.
