    So, here is a little test to see if you are more right-brained or more left-brained.

    Before scrolling down to read the text below, take a look at the spinning figure. Is she spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise?

    If you see this lady turning clockwise you are using your right brain
    If you see the lady turning counter-clockwise you are using left brain

    Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way. See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain's current. BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN. Experimentation has shown that the two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking.

    Differences Between the Left & Right Brain

    Left Brain Right Brain
    Logical Intuitive
    Sequential Random
    Analytical Holistic
    Rational Synthesizing
    Objective Subjective
    Looks at part Looks at whole

    I found this brain test here and have spent way too much time trying to get her to spin counter-clockwise. hahaha... enjoy.

    cheers,
    BD

    BD, I'm with you, I can't get her to spin any other way than clockwise.

    I found both ways, first Clockwise, then counter-clockwise.
