    I saw this on another forum and I thought you guys might be interested.

    [​IMG]

    Here is what it supposedly says about you:

    Clockwise

    Counter-Clockwise
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Personally, I have complete control over it and can switch it basically whenever. Kind of cool.

    Seen this before. I can see it both ways, and fully control which direction I see it go.

    I first saw it spinning clockwise and was like how can anyone see this spin anti-clockwise so i sat here for a few seconds looking at it and realized that there's a mirror copy of her foot and i thought that's what people see as anti-clockwise but if you look at it for a few seconds then back to the rotating woman see has now switched the way she spins.

    So now anti-clockwise spinning but her foot instead of being mirrored like before is spinning in the same direction as her, so just look at her foot again for a bit and she changes directions and you can keep doing this so she keeps changing (may vary with different people so keep looking at the foot for more then a few seconds, or may not work at all).

    This puzzle has been cracked xD.

    This can't be accurate for everyone. I see it as clockwise, and the clockwise description is the exact opposite of who I am.

    Maybe you just didn't focus on it hard enough. You're probably both. [​IMG] (This is also why I added "supposedly", because I also saw it the way unlike me first)

    I've seen this animation a couple years ago.

    I see it moving both ways, but mostly counter-clockwise, especially if I look at the shadow. If I happen to see it move clockwise, then look at the shadow, I can switch it to counter-clockwise, but not the other way around.

    My particular situation may be kind of unique though.....I'm essentially blind in my right eye since 1991 (no lens, no iris, transplanted cornea), so I don't see with both halves of my brain anymore. I only see with one side. My right eye sees just a super-blur and basically shuts off during normal visual activities. When I try to look at the animation with only my right eye, I just see a wiggling blur and I wouldn't be able to tell what it was if I didn't already know. I'm sure that it affects my ability to see it move both ways at will......my eyesight was my "gift" for lack of a better term.

    August 13, 1991 is when my gaming kills took a nose-dive. It's also when my entire attitude changed from positive and happy to negative and depressing.

    I usally see it moving clockwise but every now and then I see it moving counter-clockwise. So looking at the copy of her foot for a few seconds helps the way you see it move?

    I can see both but only have partial control. Every time I look away and then back at it, it switches.
    Or is that complete control then [​IMG]

    I have no control over it, and sometimes it goes right, sometimes left. Most of the time though, it's right.

    Lol the only control I have, is that I make it always spin clockwise, so even if I look at it upside down which should make the spin seem counterclockwise, my brain just instantly reverses it to spin clockwise, which if I wasn't looking at it upside down, would be spinning counterclockwise. So to switch the direction, I just look at it upside down (but it's still the same perceived direction, aka clockwise).I guess clockwise is just natural for me, and not because I favour my right brain over my left.

    Holy crap! I played with it since my comment, and can now control it at will! All I do is spin my finger in front of my face, in the direction I want her to go, then blink for like... 2 seconds.

    I have complete control. Ive found that if you glance away from it, that will usually switch it.

    I've seen it a lot of times before too.

    When I first look, I usually see it spinning clockwise, but I have control over it too.
    I fit the left-side description remarkably, though.
