The Spinning Lady Test

Spinning Lady Test

This is a very simple test, so don’t be nervous. Just look at the spinning lady above and decide if you think she is spinning clockwise or anti-clockwise.

Answer after the jump.

If you see this lady turning in clockwise you are using your right brain.

If you see it the other way, you are using left brain.

Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.

See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain’s current.

BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN

Experimentation has shown that the two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking. The following table illustrates the differences between left-brain and right-brain thinking:

Left Brain                    Right Brain

Logical                         Random

Sequential                    Intuitive

Rational                        Holistic

Analytical                      Synthesizing

Objective                      Subjective

Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking. Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain ones. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics, feeling, and creativity.
