    Yeah, as mentioned in above post, I tried that for a few minutes already.

    Yeah I can't do that either. I don't think it's a problem. I've generally been able to get on with life just fine.

    Aw, don't feel bad. Your appendix is actually useful! :P

    No but seriously, you used your left brain to compose your message, so it's actually working for you.

    I think since your right brain is so dominant, looking away will make it harder to swtich. Cover everything except below her knees, and repeat "behind.... in front...." contrary to what you first see, until you actually see it that way.

    So just before the leg sticking out goes to the left side of the page, say "behind" and imagine it as behind but coming around to the front, and then say "in front" as the leg moves from the left side of the page to the right side.

    Say that to yourself and watch it for as long as it takes until you actually see it that way, then remove your hand without breaking your gaze and watch the rest of her spin counter-clockwise.

    You can do it!

    Edit: Nevermind, I saw that you got it to work the other way already. Told ya you could do it.

    I actually did to it, with Zero's diagram of R leg label alone. I did read somewhere that the right and left brains can actually function well as two separate entities- no connections in between, just split the brain in two. They are like two copies of each other- so I guess that means right brains can perform language and rational tasks, and left brains creative tasks, but maybe not with such ease? I'm just guessing now.

    I guess there may be a correlation with brain hemispheres, but not a strong one?

    The weird thing is that ever since I read that article, now she keeps defaulting to clockwise instead of my usual counter-clockwise. I switch her back to counter-clockwise, then look away, and when I look again, she's clockwise again! Gah! So the power of suggestion may be at work here, also.
    That's so interesting to me. I can get her to go a few rotations clockwise...but then she's back to spinning counter-clockwise.

    At first counterclockwise and then it switched to clockwise when I looked away for a second and came back to it.

    I'm J and I only saw her stubbornly spinning clockwise for the longest time until I really focused. Then I could make her switch on command. ("dance my puppet, dance") Interesting test, though. I've seen it before, but with a horrible Internet connection that made the whole thing rather questionable.

    Pi dominant. right brained. (always steadily clockwise)
    btw according to that other test i am 63% right brained.
    i am certainly right brain dominant.
    even my right skull is bigger!

    i am not a member of the mbti J/P cult, but the poll has no option for that, so i chose option 1.

    If you're Pi dominant, doesn't that make a judging type? By judging/perceiving I'm not referring to the cognitive functions, just the simple xxxJ/xxxP.
