Take our Right vs Left Brain test below – Which way do you see the woman spinning – clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If you see her spinning clockwise, you use the right side of your brain more.

If you see her spinning anti-clockwise, you use the left side of your brain more.

Most people see the dancer going anti-clockwise, however if you focus hard enough you can make her go the other way. The amount of difficulty you have in making her change directions tells you to what extent you use each part of your brain – if you can’t make her change you are very one-sided
