Are you Right-brainer, or Left-brainer?

Found this from Herald Sun. BTW, the post was October 09, 2007. I was 16 months too late! So, perhaps you have seen this, perhaps not. ;)

THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

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

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise [KY: I certainly did not!] though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking
P/S: I am a Left-brainer according to the test...

DeePo: Right brainer are generally considered artist. :)

Greg: If you want to look the other way. Here's how I did. Look at the pix for straight 2 minutes. Try focus at the head (without covering the rest). At first you'll notice the pix seem to dance left and right but don't get distracted, keep staring! After a while you'll notice the pix dancing the other way, and no way you could turn it your-way again until you go to other page (and sort of forget it) then come again. Good luck! ;)
