    Which way does your world spin....

    What way to you see the world. Some think everything is spinning to the right, some to the left, and some both ways, there has to be a reason.

    "Out of control" was the first thought that popped into my mind when I read the thread title...

    Weird. I see the dancer going clockwise, but I could have sworn I'm very left brain-oriented.

    Counter clockwise for me.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    clockwise!


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    That what I was thinking. Oh how I hate it when the room spins.

    In note of the dance it goes clockwise.

    Re: Which way does your world spin....

    That's bizarre. I'm a CPA yet I saw the dancer going clockwise - I can't even imaging it going counter-clockwise. I must be into creative accounting.

    I'm just amused that the animated image is so detailed that they show she's clearly quite cold...

    Re: Which way does your world spin....

    Apparently, that figure is an animated GIF. I don't know much about how animated GIFs are made, but wouldn't the person who made the GIF have the dancer spinning a certain way? In other words, some people see the dancer spinning "correctly", and some people don't???

    Comment by Jess of Sydney below the dancer:

    This illusion is an example of what is called the ambiguous motion effect, which is caused by an absence of depth cues. Your brain will attempt to make sense of this image by selecting a random direction that you will perceive the figure to be rotating in, although if you concentrate hard enough, you can change the perceived direction, or it can happen spontaneously. Most people probably perceive the image to be moving counter-clockwise because of the position of her feet or arms, which make one direction look a little more natural than the other. As for the whole ¿right brain vs. left brain¿ claim, there is no such thing as dominance of either hemisphere of the brain over the other. This is just a theory that has been invented to try to explain individual differences in language ability, creativity etc¿, and has no empirical evidence at all. Both sides of the brain are responsible for all of these abilities to a degree. While we may differ in our abilities and personalities, we all use both sides of our brains equally.

    Re: Which way does your world spin....

    After awhile, I could get the shadow of her foot to go counter-clockwise, but it took quite awhile before the actual body changed. I was stunned when it did - but if I don't focus it goes right back to clockwise. Definately left-brain dominant according to this. If so, I'm either in the wrong profession or very good at what i do.
