Oh Me Eyes

Update: If anyone is interested in understanding this and is prepared to be a little bit more freaked out, go here. H/T to Army Girl for that last link

Check this out.

Shamelessly borrowed from Lex's blog, who borrowed it from someone else who borrowed it .... you get the picture.

Apparently my blogging skills ain't that great. Click on the picture to get a dancing version.

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test … do you see the dancer turning clockwise or counter-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of people see the dancer turning counter-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

uses logic

detail oriented

facts rule

words and language

present and past

math and science

can comprehend



order/pattern perception

knows object name

reality based

forms strategies




uses feeling

“big picture” oriented

imagination rules

symbols and images

present and future

philosophy & religion

can “get it” (i.e. meaning)



spatial perception

knows object function

fantasy based

presents possibilities


risk taking

So which are you?
Me ... clockwise all the way.

Try it and I will share a little secret with you later.

Well, I tried it and yes, it went counter clockwise and then when I was asked to go back, do it again, concentrate and make it go the other way I actually managed to see the girl twirling half way to the right and half way to the left - like a pendulum. Do you suppose it means I've got a little bit of this and a little bit of that? :)

I was clockwise first, but after about 5 minutes, I could make her go counter-clockwise. So I am all mixed up.

She never goes anything but clockwise for me.

Heh. So, here I am, the artillerist, wordsmith, and historian... seeing her go clockwise.

Unless I want her to go counter-clockwise, then I can do that in about three turns.

But I can have going clockwise again in one.

I'm left handed, but right-eye dominant.

Now, after reading doorkeeper... I've got to go see if I can make her swing like a saloon door!
