I see spinning both directions, but then I see the image stop and reverse in a oscillating peroidic semi-circular motion. Interesting.

I presume that means that your brain is about equal on each side, so one side is not dominant over the other, so it will switch depending on which side of the brain you are engaging when looking at it. There probably a technical term for it, i just dont know it.
I think the technical term you're searching for is "bullsh*t." :wink:

How about this one:

If you see the yellow side facing outward, you're left-brained. If it's inward, you're right-brained. If it switches, you have a brain tumor.

right. Which is false. I find it impossible to see her spin the other way no matter how long I look.

Counter-clockwise.

I can see her spin clockwise if I try, but she still drops back into a counter-clockwise rotation after a few seconds.

When I was a kid, I used to love those signs that would rotate 180 degrees and then reverse direction (it was hard to rotate something in the same direction forever because of cable wrap). You'd try to figure out which way the sign was rotating, but eventually realize it was just going back and forth.

I must have a tumor.

:rofl: If you see the green side facing inward you're color blind and if you see the blue side facing upward you're holding it wrong.

The picture just changes direction every so often, its random. I was staring at it for 5min, then it changed, so I opened two different browsers that generated the pictures at different speeds and looked at both at the same time, one would spin one way, the other, the other way, and moved the browsers to opposite sides as well.
When I opened the page it was going clockwise, then after I had read through the list of things, she was spinning counter-clockwise. I hit refresh (so it reloads the gif) and it started spinning clockwise again.

What a crappy site.

Really? I have a brain tumor?

I have a brain tumor also, when I opened it my first thought was "upper left is yellow". Then I re-read what hynagogue wrote and realized that's not an option, so I looked at it again then saw it "inward" then wondered if it was outward, then it changed to outward, then I thought "inward" and it became inward.

I still say it is flat and yellow is the upper left. What's the evaluation of that?

wow, once i managed to see that the woman was basically just flipping over left and right in a vertical axis, i can change the way i want to look her turn.

As for the cube well, i managed to compare the junction immediately top left of the dot. If i wanted to view the dot as nearer to me, then i would be right brained, if i wanted to view the dot as further away from me, then im left.

Umm, it means you are absolutely right and we are all just imagining things.

It means you have a hole where the tumor should be.

Yipes. Open it and look at it with both eyes. Then start closing and opening one eye at a time and alternating. It changes from one aspect to the other.

In the OP the girl twirling will go one way when focusing only on the feet and the other way when looking at the whole picture.

??? Should I call my family doctor or a psychiatrist? Hmm the MD will be cheaper.:smile:

I tried what you suggested and it always spinned clockwise for me. Always.

This seems strange to me since I am very much into (and good at) math.
