Clockwise Or Anti-Clockwise? Right-Brained Or Left-Brained?

This is completely insane. If you see this woman moving clockwise you are apparently right-brained. If you see her moving anti-clockwise, you are left-brained. For the record, I could not, simply could not, understand how anyone would see her moving clockwise. But you can "trick" yourself by, well, I don't want to tell you. The point is you can make her look like she's going the opposite way from how you first saw her. In any event go check it out, it's fun!

dude. This was great. Everyone I showed it to at uni went nuts trying to make it switch directions. It was weird coz initially i saw it go anticlockwise, but after i switched to seeing it clockwise about 5 seconds later, i couldnt go back. It took me a proper five minutes to see it anti clockwise again.

So how do u make it go clockwise!

Faraz said...

I figured it out. I can make it go either way at will. I'm a genius.

anon735: stare at the feet and the space between the feet. instead of "seeing" her leg go over the other, try to "see" it going under. cover everything but her legs with your hand. you should make it switch.

This is fucked up, I'm still not able to make it go anti-clockwise. I want to, becuase the list for the 'left side' of the brain corresponds more with how I see myself. Its insane I mean me and "impetutous" and "risk taking"

This just in I'm in the middle of writing a post at the office but people have started burning petrol pumps so I'm rushing home - so much for risk taking...stupid test!

oh and NB I'ms orry for not replying but I've been working on your license. The dumb Bar Council is a bit confused on the whole GDL.

I also had the immediate reaction that it was going anti-clockwise. Then I started reading the info on the sidebar and it suddenly started going clockwise. Using the trick, I can get it to go either way, but not on demand.

Oh, and I should be working on my masters defense, Ahsan. Jackass. You can't post stuff like this when I'm supposed to be working.

Ahsan said...

masters defense, shmasters defense. just take the ken taro route, or in other words: talk crap and then pretend all the other IR people in the room don't know what they're talking about.

NB said...

I like how this post has become the bulletin board. Kabir stop blaming the Bar Council and burning petrol pumps for your inability to reply. As for the girl, I can switch at will! This is great. I never get to be smug.

i'm beginning to believe the animation switches direction... i couldn't make it change direction at will but i left the window on in the background and when i looked back a couple of times she changed direction both times. or maybe i'm just special :)

Ahsan said...

no, the animation doesn't switch. the proof of this is the fact that i watched it with someone else and, at the same time, we saw her moving in different directions.

Ismat said...

okay then i must be special :)

NB said...

Dude, whenever i have accused you of being special in the past, you have vehemently denied it.

NB said...

You therefore cannot claim it now, belatedly, just coz its the 'in' thing following the spinning naked chick.

Ismat said...

nb, shait up and write me a proper email.
