Left brain vs. Right Brain
 
Ran across this on another message board..

Quote:

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 though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

words and language..............symbols and images

knowing.................................believes
acknowledges.......................appreciates

Reading this would leave me to "believe" that the left side lacks emotion.

Left brian dead
 
I natually see her turning clockwise and have to focus to see her turning counterclockwise.
Wow this is neat....(right brain)
What does this prove.....(left brain)

Yea, try as I might, I just can't see her turning counter-clock wise no matter how hard I try ! asked the wife to take a look, she says "it's turning clockwise.... " and I'm like yeah.. and then she says "oh wait, now it's turning counter-clockwise" and I'm like NOT IT ISN'T !! LOL

yeah, I don't necessarily agree with their comments on "left brain vs right brain" definitions etc..

someone posted this picture with the following explanation..

Look at this capture closely.
-You can see it as her facing you with her left leg and arm extended rotating counter-clockwise
...................or
-You can see it as her having her back to you with her right leg and arm extended rotating clockwise.

Here, I'm able to do what they describe and I can see her facing either way. But when it's in motion, I can only see clockwise rotation.

Stare at her outside moving foot and Imagine as she is turning clockwise and her foot reaches a point 90 degrees from your point of view she changes and comes back counterclockwise.
Or imagine she is facing you the whole time and simply swinging her foot back and forth from right to left then left to right.

Weird! Initially with a casual glance I saw counterclockwise. Then after reading further I can only see clockwise, no matter what I try.

I can see it going both ways (but not at the same time) It was like I looked away and then looked back and she was spinning opposite. I could only make that happen once though...

boy do I feel like a dope. She, uh, well, she goes both ways! If you watch her long enough she will change directions. I don't think it's left or right brain interpretation. Maybe you guys already saw it and the joke's on me.

Isaac-Saxxon 10-15-2007 06:30 PM

Well now we got a gal that swings both ways :rolleyes: I can only see her turn to the right :confused:

rhertz 10-15-2007 07:52 PM

> She goes both ways

LOL, good one! :)

LOL something we can agree on LOL I can only see her go clock-wise as well.. try as I might.. Yet I'm surrounded by folks telling me "Oh look, she changed directions" I figure I must be concentratin' on her boobs too much, watchin' them go 'round n' 'round CLOCKWISE !! LOL :peace:

We can agree to agree now that is nice. Football must be sucking tonight. :laugh: I wonder if these robots have a kill switch for when they get locked up ? :eek::eek::eek:

Pocahontas 10-15-2007 10:09 PM

Well I saw her go both ways as well! Like rhertz if I looked down and looked back up she might change?? :confused:

you guys must have ADD. You're not waiting long enough. Wait, and I promise she will change.

piemaker720 10-15-2007 10:24 PM

I saw her go both ways and I didn't have to look away. I saw her go clockwise, then counter clockwise, then sway side to side, then clockwise again. Weird.:laugh::laugh::laugh:
