Artistic Or Logical...Maybe Both

Look at the dancer below. What do you see? Is she turning clockwise or counter-clockwise? You just can't help but love these optical illusions.

If you see her turning clockwise (right) then your left side of the brain is doing most of the work, which means you are more of a logic/analyzing person.

If you see the dancer turning counter-clockwise (left) then your right side of the brain is in charge, this means you are the artistic/intuition person.

You control the way the dancer turns. Try looking at this with a few more people and see how everyone sees it different.

Dear Me,

I have read and taken these types of tests before, you know, tests that measure or determine your psychological abilities and inclinations - that if your brain's right hemisphere do most of the work, you're geared more on the intellectual view of things. On the other hand, if the left hemisphere takes precedence, you're more inclined in the artistic perspective of things.

As I see the dancing figure, I perceived her to be turning clockwise. But on closer inspection, she's also turning the opposite way. It's always clockwise and then at some point, turns counter-clockwise.

So, is she turning clockwise or the other way around to you?
