right or left brained?

Have a look at the figure in action here. I've had this tab open on my Mac for about a week and I just cannot get my head around it. For me, she keeps switching: one minute she's going clockwise and the next, she's going anti-clockwise. Does this mean that I am both Right AND Left Brained? This moving lady completely baffles me.


  1. This is very interesting! At first it seemed she was moving counter-clockwise... and when I looked again she was turning clockwise... and I can't make her go the other way. I think I'll spend the next few hours staring at her.

  2. I can't believe it, but I see it clockwise, yet I am so not a right brainer. (Or so I thought.) I did manage to get it to go counter a couple of times. Thanks for the refer to it. This is mesmerizing.

  3. I keep going back to this because I don't understand it. She keeps changing the way she turns... My family looked at her at the same time and I sound like the crazy one: 'She turned NOW! Now she's back to clockwise' etc.
