Right Brain vs Left Brain Test

Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or counter-clockwise?
If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning counter-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

I got this test in an email from my sister-in-law. Originally this was posted here. How'd you do? I can see it clockwise. She saw it counter-cw. My mom-in-law said to see it go the other way she stared at the outstretched arm. Everyone (except above referenced sis-in-law) that I know has seen it cw so I don't know about the comment above. This was from Australia though. Maybe they are backwards there?!
Do you even know the difference between cw and counter-cw?

3 people are laughing with me:

Looks clockwise to me... Can't figure out how it could possibly look counter clock wise to some? weird.

Well, I guess I'm the exception of people you know, because it was more ccw to me than cw. In fact, I sat there, determining and debating a bit, and then just sucked it up and accepted that I am left-brained. I suspected so all along. *sigh*
