This is driving me nuts - the funcrunch files

Oct. 15th, 2007 12:20 pm This is driving me nuts

I can't get her to spin counter-clockwise no matter what!

Didn't think I was that right-brain dominant (assuming the article's assertion is even accurate...)

Edit: I was finally able to get her to spin the other way by looking at just the legs and shadow; see comments.

I can't look at it and make it change direction, but if I look away for a while, it almost seems random as to which way I see it spinning when I look back!

If I cover up the top and focus on the legs/shadow, I can make it change at will. Until I did that, I was convinced the whole thing was a trick because she was moving counter-clockwise, dammit. :)

Hey that worked! I tried before looking just at the shadow, but including the legs finally enabled me to change the perspective...

I can get it to switch back and forth without covering up anything. But I do have to look away for a moment. This supports what I've always known - I'm equally left and right brained.

The test is bullshit, because the shadow makes no sense. I wrote about what's wrong with it on DailyKos a few days ago. I haven't stop-framed the image to see if the outstretched leg is moving more swiftly in either direction (if it is, then it's a perspective projection and the test is even more bullshit).

The easiest way to fix the test is to get rid of the shadow.
