    Looks clock-wise to me......guess I'm right-brained. That's funny because a different "test" I took online said I was left-brained. Guess I use both sides. LOL After going back and viewing it a second time, I did notice she changed directions several times.....

    So which brain are you if you saw her turning clockwise and counter clockwise, depening on how you shifted your eyes. I guess I use a little bit of both from time to time.

    She's spinnin' clockwise.

    I've never heard of counter-clockwise being called "anti" clockwise. Interesting....

    She goes in both directions. Guess that means I use both halves of my brain. LOL

    I saw it counter-clockwise, the clockwise. It seemed to change on a regular basis. I think it is just timed to do that! HA!

    Our guild had a speaker once that gave us all a test to see if we were righ or left or in the middle. She lined us up according to the number on your test, it was quite interesting.

    That's me too. The very first moment I opened it she was counter clockwise, but then she was clockwise the remainder of the time I looked AT her. When I shifted my eyes to read the article to the left she was spinning counter clockwise again.

    When I read the descriptions under each - most of them for left and right apply to me.

    It's English (and other English speaking countries as well). When I was there listening to the traffic reports of the circular Motorway (M25) they reported clockwise and anti-clockwise.

    Yup that was me. It seems she spins counter clockwise a little then switches to clockwise.

    Interesting how most of us here can see it both ways. DH thinks I am crazy. He only sees it going counter clock wise. Must be the creative mind in us quilting folks.

    I have that too but when I looked at her straight on she was clock wise. When I read the words next to the image I see her going counter clock wise. I am not truely right handed either and do things often with both hands equaly well.

    I am left handed. The only thing I do with my left hand is right and bowl. Everything else I do right handed.Comb my hair, crochet, reach for something, just about everything.Years ago I managed a beauty supply store. We were taught to put pricing left to right according to prices. Cheapest to the left and expensive to the right. So according to this I am lefthanded but left brained????? No wonder my family thinks I am crazy!!!!!!!!!LOL LOL

    How strange!! When I first saw it, she was going clockwise. When I glanced away to read the description of both she was going counter-clockwise. I very definately see it both ways!!!

    If I say math in my mind while watching her foot she turns counter clockwise, if I say vacation in my mind she quickly turns clockwise. I make her change by back and forth by focusing on her foot.
