Default Right Brain vs The Left Brain Challenge

The Spinning Silhouette Optical Illusion
This is a very bizarre dancer optical illusion. At first glance the spinning lady appears to be circling in a clockwise motion. But if you look at the spinning dancer long enough - the lady will appear to change direction and start spinning counter-clockwise.


This spinning illusion has also been referred to as a Right Brain vs. The Left Brain challenge. It's a tough one and it takes a lot of focus.

I can't see her spinning clockwise at all, are you sure she is appearing to spin clockwise cause all I see is counter clockwise.

This is a great exercise into right brain left brain use. I think most people on Avalon would be able to see the lady going both ways.

I found if I concentrated really hard, the light went on and she ran away shrieking


(Seriously - both ways. We were taught to do this at school in music classes, if you cant do it, you can learn it. Its a kind of mental gymnastics)

Note: it only works if you have animations enabled !

A..

This is absolute BS imho. I sat here for 15 minutes watching and at one point she is on her left leg spinning clockwise, then at some point she switches to her right leg spinning counter clockwise. So, my mind isn't doing it, I just had to watch it long enough... lmao. Thanks for the game though.
