    Interesting how the creator managed to get you all to say anti-clockwise instead of counter clockwise, lol. I saw it clockwise and no other possible way for about 20 seconds, and then all of a sudden it was the complete opposite, really think that image changed! :P

    Bah, now it does nothing again - I think all that math and thinking is more to do with the distraction. Seriously, all the silly fun aside and giving it a serious thought, I really don't think there's any scientific research behind this "test". It's just a simple optical illusion that can hardly have anything to do with brain sides. The article certainly doesn't give any sources to back it up. Who's created this test? How did they test which side of the brain works when? Where does the correlation between clockwise/counter-clockwise and brain sides come from?

    Now the left brain side is working, yet the girl still turns clockwise

    Clockwise to start. If I make counter-clockwise motions with my finger, look away and look back I can make it spin the opposite direction.

    Got a weird look from my wife, though

    I dunno, the image changes when the direction of spin does. Red flag #1

    The more I watch it, the more convinced I am that this is not an optical illusion. The only psychologically interesting thing is it has me questioning whether or not it is an optical illusion.

    when I change the direction of spin as described below, the image remains the same for me.

    for me it now just boils down to whether I concentrate on the leg that sticks out when it is moving from left to right on the screen or from right to left as described earlier.

    right to left = anticlockwise

    left to right = clockwise.

    so it's easy now to see her spinning in both directions, but not at the same time That would be

    It is an illusion, because the image has no depth it cannot "spin". So any spinning effect is the illusion, let alone the direction.

    I think she is moving both the directions.
