    Default Animated GIF supposedly shows brain hemisphere in use (warning: possibly NSFW)

    A user on the LJ "intj_" community posted a rather interesting animated image of a dancing woman silhouette:

    untitled picture

    Per his entry (http://community.livejournal.com/intj_/140344.html)-

    If you see it going Counter-Clockwise--supposedly you are using your left brain--whereas Clockwise means right brain.

    In any case, it often will switch for people and then it can become a game to try and make it switch back and forth...

    So I just posted a redundant thread for this after seeing it on the intj_ LJ community. I can see it going either way, although I don't have good control over which direction. I've not been able to see it going "both ways simultaneously," it's always moving in one direction or the other.

    I deconstructed the GIF using GIMP to see if there was any trick involved, but I don't see any. There are 34 frames spaced 30 milliseconds apart which appear to perform 1 rotation of the woman, and I noticed when I played it frame-by-frame my brain would show me her moving in either direction, not simultaneously but one after the other. In other words, after exposing the next frame, my brain would show me the sensation of her moving clockwise, then reset and show me the same sensation of her moving counterclockwise.

    I opened the link and saw her counter clockwise. After a couple of blinks and stares, I got her to go clockwise. Switching back to counter took a while. Then I managed to switch back and forth. It's easier to switch from clockwise to counter than from counter to clockwise though.

    I thought I saw it duplicated once earlier also. But that thread seems to have disappeared.

    First I saw it going counter-clockwise. Then after several seconds it switched I saw it going clockwise.
    I haven't quite controlled the image yet.

    I usually test as being fairly even on the left-brain, right-brain quizzes.

    Look at the following woman before you proceed to the questions:

    http://www.guitarmania.org/z40/data/gowoon31/123241.gif

    Do you see her turning clockwise or counterclockwise?
    Can you see both directions?

    If you see her turning clockwise, your right brain dominates.
    If you see her turning counterclockwise, your left brain dominates.
    If you can see her turning both ways, you are likely to have a high IQ.

    Let's see how different types of people respond to this test.

    I saw her turning clockwise and I could see the other direction when I really tried to see it, but not immediately.

    I saw it going clockwise first. I blinked and it went counterclockwise, I blinked again and it was going clockwise..and so on and so on. Interesting.
    Cool gif.

    I can't see her going clockwise no matter how much I try. I just see her going anti clockwise.

    Strange.

    I originally saw her going counter-clockwise. Than I stared at her feet, and then I realized that she was going clockwise. Even if I look away, I can't get the animation to go counter-clockwise again.

    Edit: Forget it... now it's going counter-clockwise. This is so weird. The dominant spin is definitely clockwise.
