    That's the way I saw her too. First impressions were clockwise though.

    Very cool.

    Clockwise and had a hard time to see it turn counter-clockwise. And I cannot see different directions at will.
    I usually score hardcore left-brained in most of this stuff, which implies:
    -mostly right-handed: false
    -mostly sensor: I am not sure
    -more rational than holistic: pretty true.
    I find these kind of stuff to be baseless and to try to randomly correlate genetic preferences (such as hand orientation) with behavioural preferences, which I think would be mostly environmental

    I initially saw her moving counterclockwise for about 15 seconds. When I focused less intensely, the direction changed to clockwise. I refocused and could still see a clockwise rotation. I tried to see if I could change the direction back to counterclockwise, and after a few rotations it changed back. For me, the intensity and point of focus were factors in determining direction.

    hmm...however long I stared at this for, I could never get it to go counterclockwise. Usually I get these visual things instantly too. That's odd. I can't even imagine how anyone is seeing counterclockwise.

    I kinda doubt it has anything to do with IQ though.

    Have you tried just glancing to the right of it? turn your head slightly? Or another way is to look at the shadow of the feet and then look back up?

    I'm getting better at controlling it.

    Neat image.

    Initially, I saw her counter-clockwise, then clockwise, then switching randomly, then clockwise again.

    It took me a little while to control the perception. I focus on getting her swinging leg to pass in front of her or behind her. I find it a little harder to switch from clockwise to counter-clockwise than the other way around.

    She seems more graceful going clockwise, but more energetic going counter-clockwise. I think that is because her "hop" is between 90 and 180 degrees when going clockwise, but 180 to 270 degrees going counter-clockwise.

    Initially counter-clockwise, but then I could see it either way, like with Necker's cube. Focusing on one direction made it harder to think of the other direction, but looking at her feet helped it. Also, just seeing at as a whole helped me.

    There was a moment that I lost the ability to switch and I wondered how hard it can be. It was harder to change when I concentrated on it, lol.. so what to learn? When you try too hard, you dont use both brain sides?

    Clockwise. I can't get her to move counter-clockwise without effort, though.

    I guess that means I'm in my right mind!

    I tried both those things and still never see her doing anything but clockwise. I see how it's possible to see either in theory, but when it's actually moving in front of me all I can see is clockwise.
