Test your brain.

Does the girl spin counterclockwise or clockwise?

If you see her wearing leotards and spinning to the right then you are a liberal pinko or a woman.

If you see the naked girl spinning to the left then you are a red-blooded American male even if you are a woman who lives in Europe and likes to knit.

If you see her spinning bothways you live in California or New Hampshire or Vermont.

Surely not both ways at the same time. I live in liberal pinko New York. In the red-blooded American part of New York. In a liberal pinko county in New York. In a good red-blooded American township in New York.

Ha! that's real funny. At first I saw her spinning clockwise, then replacing my focus she started spinning counterclockwise.

Now can I see her spin both ways at command and in leotards or naked at wish. So what's the verdict, Scientific Spinmaster?

If you stare long enough you'll see her spin both ways at the same time and do a somersault with it.

(I'll stay out of an eventual next hogwash. I can do no good there. So I give up, leave it to you old gang)

You can really make her do a regural left right movement like a ballet dancer or a - left right, full turn ,right left. Be a choreographer. I would say neat!.

:)For the regular switch concentrate on the ellbows.

I had to go back and reread your post, Milo. You got to get up pretty early in the afternoon to hornwswoggle us forever.

She's spinning to the right during half of her rotation and to the left during the other half and it doesn't matter whether she's spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Oh, oh, my bad. The test doesn't determine whether you are a good guy or a pinko. This is a test to discover whether your brain is mostly circuited on the left or on the right.

Below are some traits that are peculiar to the left or the right side of the brain .

You see her spinning counter-clockwise <--

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


You see her spinning clockwise -->

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

Heaven help me. I test on both sides of the street.

And regardless of which way she's spinning her pony-tail is leading rather than trailing. She's being dragged around by her pony-tail!

Ah Grasshopper, you approach the truth but then run away.
Yes her spin is both to the left and to the right. But now, betsy bug, you must explain what causes the illusion of the change in direction of her spin.

Hint: Look at the spinning girl through Einstein's eyes.
