Take a look at this… and let me know which way the dancer is spinning.

Supposedly, it spins clockwise if the creative side of your brain is dominant, and counter-clockwise if the logical side holds sway. I first saw her going counter-clockwise, then clockwise, then she and her shadow turning in opposite directions.

It plays tricks with your eyes for sure.

  3. She alternates for me also. Sean said she only spins counter-clockwise for him–he can’t make her change direction. Matt says that the monitor has captivating moving pictures.

  4. More press for this! According to the experts, it is purely a visual thing.
