The Brain Poser.

The right brain or the left brain test… do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

 Have a good look at it before scrolling down….

 Again, make sure you had a good look at it..







If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

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

For me, it was anti-clockwise. No matter how hard I looked, I couldn’t make the dancer turn clockwise. Then I read one of the comments, and the guy mentioned about using your hand to cover the entire body of the dancer except the pivotal foot, and voila~! The direction changes. Then I had trouble changing BACK to anti-clockwise. And sometimes when I refreshed the page, it started to go clockwise. But I guess my initial view was anti, so I’m left-brained. Looking at the list, I guess I’d have preferred to be allocated those functions.

Pinch of salt.

What did you see?



  1. surprisingly, i saw it clock-wise and I simply cant see it anti-clockwise. Are you sure it’s possible to see it anti-clockwise?!

  2. Can lah. ‘They’ said just focus. But I couldn’t do it without having to cover the whole body leaving the pivotal foot in view.

    Inamorata said she can switch viewing clockwise and interclockwise freely. Not at that level yet.
