Yeah right

I am so right-brain. How about you?

My first thought was "Wow, that animated silhouette is hot!" Don't think that's got anything to do with my brain, though.

I don't know what to think. At first , cos I only have dial up at home, I thought she was turning right for half a turn, then left for another half turn. Then she was going anti-clockwise, and if I kind of looked away and refocused she seemed to magically change direction. I tried that a few times and I got her to change direction each time, but I'm not sure how I managed it each time. Not sure it means anything great.

Means you have one hell of a brain there Kirsty. I can't get it to do anything BUT clockwise, I put myself in her shoes and go round like a record, right round, baby.
Good stuff for Friday night, Tim - thanks.

Your post has taken up quite a bit of my morning. I couldn't get 'her' to go anti-clockwise and was finally starting to think it must be a trick image. Then I read this in the comments from the Daily Telegraph version (http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,22535838-5012895,00.html):

"It is easy to make the lovely girl turn in both directions: Quickly Switch Looking a few times at the Left and Right bottom corner - and the dancer will change directions."

I did it, it worked. And then my brain exploded.

Interesting. Like Genevieve I can't get the dancer to go anti-clockwise at all.

Fiona and Kirsty make me jealous. I can't stop going round right round.

This is a trick, right? Cos I can't even imagine how "most people" could see this figure moving anti-clockwise.

They had this in Perth's Sunday Times as well, a whole page like they discovered it or something but it's been doing the e-mail rounds since 1993... it's so last millennium

When I first looked at it it was travelling clockwise then on its own it magically changed direction. If I look just to the side of it, it does a half turn one way and then the other. Unfortunately, I am unable to make it change direction at will.

It's pretty cool thanks for finding this one, that silhouette is damn sexy!

Only anti-clockwise for me.
I think that also means that I'm quite good at tennis.
