Do you use your left or right brain?

Look at the picture below. Is the woman spinning in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction?

What it means if she is spinning anti-clockwise: You are a left-brainer! You use logic, believe in facts, look into the past and the present, comprehend word/language/math/numbers, and you are practical and safe. Most people would fall into this category.

What it means if she is spinning clockwise: You are a right-brainer! You use feelings, believe in the imagination, look into the present and the future, like philosophy, religion and fantasy, and you are impetuous and risk-taking.

Many people can only see the woman spinning in one direction. Many also see her spinning in both directions after a minute or so but there is still a dominant direction. The dominant direction would indicate the side of the brain you are more reliant on, but the ability to see both directions imply a greater ability to use both sides of the brain.

For me, i started off seeing a very clear clockwise direction and of all a sudden, without warning (i wasn’t told what the test was about when shown the picture), say after 10 seconds, i saw the woman turning and then spinning in an anti-clockwise direction. It was very cute cos the dancer appeared busy, changing direction repeatedly.  After a while though, she was back to turning clockwise very contentedly.

I would say the test is accurate, at least for me. Being a Taurean (yeap, i somewhat believe in horoscope cos’ i am really quite a typical Taurean), I am grounded, practical and stable. It is also true that i do well academically and am good in language/ok in the other areas. BUT i love fantasizing, i love sci-fi and fantasy, and can be extremely fickle and flighty with a taste for exciting challenges.

Which side of your brain do you use more?

  1. i saw this thing before. and now tt i’m looking at it again, i’ve been staring at it for quite a while and mine changes back and forth quite a few times. trying to determine if it’s fake! hahahaha. i somehow can’t believe that it’s really like that. or rather, i’m more of like too fascinated with the idea that our mind is so amazing.
