Are you right-brained or left-brained?

This is kind of cool. If you ever wanted to know if you are predominantly right-brained (ruled by imagination) or left-brained (ruled by logic), check out the spinning dancer animation at Right Brain vs Left Brain.

If she's spinning clockwise most of the time, you're more right-brained. If she's spinning counter-clockwise more often, you're more left-brained. If you're like me, and you can make her spin either way just by blinking and looking back, you're ruled by both sides of the brain.

Hint: if all you can see is the dancer spinning clockwise, look away and read something, then look back. Reading is done by the left side of the brain, and chances are, she'll be spinning counter-clockwise when you look back.

And it's really weird, because depending which way the dancer is spinning, she has a different leg raised. In case you think the animation is just randomly switching directions just to fool you, try getting someone else to watch her with you. There will be times when each person swears she's spinning in a different direction!

So spill: Are you right-brained or left-brained??

I was sitting there arguing with the computer, convinced that the animation was switching on its own. Cracked my kids up.

I am more right-brained than left-brained, I guess.

I'm totally confused. She was spinning clockwise but if I looked at her reflection I could get her to switch. But as soon as I looked up she'd stop mid turn and go clockwise again.

Now my eyes hurt.

I am right-brained!! To the max! That test is amazing.

I asked my DH to look at it and he was arguing with me that she was spinning counter-clockwise! :-) lol He is left-brained of course.

I can't wait to get my son to take the test tonight. Should be eye-opening, I think :-)

Thanks for suggesting this test.

My daughter and I are mainly left-brained about 75/25. My son nearly exclusively is left-brained. He'd only catch glimpses of her going clockwise. This was really fun! I forwarded the link.
