I stumbled upon this article the other day and I think you’re going to get a kick out of it. It’s a little test to see whether you’re right brained or left brained. Just observe the illusion below. If the girl is spinning clockwise you’re currently operating more with your right brain. If she’s spinning anti-clockwise, you’re more left brained right now.
Check out this article from the Herald Sun and see if you hold any of the traits typical of lefties and righties.
But note that you’re never permanently left or right brained. I’m mostly right brained, but will switch to left during periods of intense focus. I switch back to right every time I do the Silva Method centering technique (a 30 second mental trigger). Also keep in mind that when we say left brained or right brained we’re not really talking about brain hemispheres at all. Just a mode of functioning. Left = Logical. Right = Feelings.
Right Brain v Left Brain
THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test … do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.
Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.
