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.


LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS.........RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic...............................uses feeling
detail oriented......................."big picture" oriented
facts rule................................imagination rules
words and language..............symbols and images
present and past...................present and future
math and science...................philosophy & religion
can comprehend....................can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
knowing.................................believes
acknowledges.......................appreciates
order/pattern perception.......spatial perception
knows object name................knows object function
reality based..........................fantasy based
forms strategies....................presents possibilities
practical.................................impetuou s
safe.......................................risk taking

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

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..
Quote:
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.
