    I'm trying to find the percentages of right vs. left brained people- I thought for some reason there were a higher amount of left-brained people,but I could be wrong, and the P/J divide is about half and half, so it may not be a fool-proof theory. Handedness has something to do with it, too.

    Cool. Yah...I've always seen this as more of a T vs F...as opposed to J vs P.

    It sounds like it could be, but I don't think that's accurate either- T vs. F lands about 50/50 too. I'm sure there is a loose correlation- It's rather hard to picture an xxTJ person who would consider themselves strongly right-brained. (It's apparently hard for ME to picture something as simple as the dancer going the other way- so I guess my view is going to be pretty darn subjective! !)

    It's a pretty even split between going either direction. To make her switch direction at will, avert your eyes and think about the opposite direction, ensuring she remains in your peripheral.

    Same for me but the other way around (clockwise, but I'm a J...though in tests I'm not always "strong J".)


    EDIT: when I saw the thread title I thought of a couple of poems by W B Yeats about dancers, which probably tells you more about me than the test results would.

    Only clockwise. Impossible for me to switch directions. But I'm actually pretty good at math, and quite punctual...

    I guess what I'm wondering...and maybe @shortnsweet can explain...is are we more 'unusual' <--- that doesn't sound right LOL. I mean as an INFJ would it be more likely that you see the gal dancing counter-clockwise...? And for me I 'should' have seen the gal dancing clockwise? Wow...I'm really having trouble expressing myself this morning!!! Hopefully someone will understand what I am attempting to convey.

    ***Yeats. Awesome.

    Well, I don't know, I'm not an expert, I just saw the dancer for the first time today. But there is an article above from Freakonomics with a study, (not a very good one, but a study none-the-less) seems like a lot more people see the the dancer going clockwise.
