    No. It claims to state whether you are left brained or right brained.
    If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.
    How the hell does it know that you use more of the right side or the left. What if by chance you were using the side you don't usually use when looking at the ballerina. Then we have a problem don't we. It would say you use more of this side when in actual fact, you use more of the other side. It doesn't say anything about the 'current' state of mind.

    not what i read in various german sources. you have the original source of this thing?

    it's just this thread, that makes this claim, god knows where mystic pulled that table from...
    and for sure there are a lot of journalistic resellings of this topic. we know, they never get science right.

    3 copies of the same text.... count this thread and its four sources
    lets google for the exact same text and find 30 other copies.

    well, whatever the original claim, it can be trusted for what it actually does.
    I just finished a piece of art. I look at the girl and she's moving clockwise.
    I just solved a math problem. I look at the girl and she's moving anti-clockwise.

    How do you know if it actually depends on which 'side' of your brain you use more, or on your state of mind, or simply on what you expect it to be?

    Well at least we know it's the original copy of whoever made it.

    It can be trusted for what it does but not what the claims say it does.

    on what you expect it to be? That's why you should go with your initial response - you haven't had enough time to really think about what you expect it to be. At least I didn't.

    My initial response isn't consistent. I can't remember which way I saw it going when I first saw it (it was a rather long time ago), but I do remember that I could change it at will, or it would seem to change without warning. The reason I brought up expectation was Ragingkatsuki's post about state of mind. Perhaps there's something similar to the placebo effect at work here?

    In any case, I can see the dancer turning both ways, so there. You just have to decide when the outer foot is close to you or far away from you.
    first time I looked at it was going counter clockwise. I blinked and it was then going clockwise. Freaky tho.
