Right Brain v Left Brain

Sources Herald Sun, October 9, 2007

I find these brain tests fascinating. Do you see the dancer turning clockwise (she turns on her left leg) or counter-clockwise (she turns on her right leg)? If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Initially I see the dancer turning clockwise. Then, if I focus on the leg movement for a few seconds, the dancer is turning counter-clockwise. The pattern repeats itself. I guess I am a mixed-brain (half left, half right)! SmileyCentral.com

Now take this quick test to find out and let me know what you see!

Notes : please click the image if you can't view the virtual dancer spinning...
