This test literally kept me entertained for an hour or so. It's always spinning the same way, but it switches direction at different times for people. Me and some friends watched this and someone would say it switched then five minutes later someone else would say it switched and then someone else would disagree. Try it.

I always see it clockwise first and then it switches to counter clockwise.

It goes clockwise at first, then counterclockwise when I blink.

We had a 20 minute discussion about this in my psychology class back in January.

Soo ummm...****. It's not moving at all for me. It started turning counter-clockwise, then BAM. It stopped. Does that mean I'm no brained.....middle brained......??

I can't seem to make her switch. I'm only seeing clockwise. I must be right-brained...

Same here, I've watched for 5 minutes and all she does is move clockwise.

Is this real? Or is it set to switch rotations to mess with you?

Ya well when i wrestle/play with my dog he sometimes jumps on my back and starts humping me. But should he be doing this if he is neutered?

I managed to switch it on command I just keep repeating the direction I want it to go over in my head and it seems to switch, pretty cool

The trick is the paths of her two rotations as an 8

Imagine the middle foot is in the center of the eight, right where the two circles intercept. Now when the legs overshadow each other, either imagine the far leg going behind her or in front of her.

Very hard to explain.. I personally saw it clockwise first
#20
It should work for everyone. The guy above me is right. Stare at the foot that stays in the middle and it should eventually change.
#21
Yes! I finally got her to go counter-clockwise!

woah that is awesome. to get her to switch... try to not watch her rotate, watch the arms and leg going across the screen as a 2D image going across the screen.

i stared at it for about 10 min. only seeing clockwise and thought no way anyone could see it ccw, then I stared at the knee in the center and it changed to ccw and I couldn't get it to change back until I moved the mouse and looked up to change tabs
#26
I can make it change really easily, but I initially saw it clockwise.
#27
The trick is to focus on the pointed foot if you want to make it switch. My favourite is when it gets caught in the middle and keeps switching back and forth quickly, must mean somethings wrong with your head.

this is old. long thread about it. but basically, it does not control whether you're left or right brained.

you can switch it yourself when the legs overlap. if you see the leg crossing in front, itll spin one way. it you see the leg crossing behind, you'll see it switch directions.
#37
okay first 10 sec it was clockwise. now its anticlockwise. and i cant get it to switch. lol

So...

Interesting little opti. illusion.
It's a perception based axis that will switch every time you look at the shadow.

it spins whichever way you think it is spinning. that's the optical illusion.
