Are you right-brained or left-brained?

This is kind of cool. If you ever wanted to know if you are predominantly right-brained (ruled by imagination) or left-brained (ruled by logic), check out the spinning dancer animation at Right Brain vs Left Brain.

If she's spinning clockwise most of the time, you're more right-brained. If she's spinning counter-clockwise more often, you're more left-brained. If you're like me, and you can make her spin either way just by blinking and looking back, you're ruled by both sides of the brain.

Hint: if all you can see is the dancer spinning clockwise, look away and read something, then look back. Reading is done by the left side of the brain, and chances are, she'll be spinning counter-clockwise when you look back.

And it's really weird, because depending which way the dancer is spinning, she has a different leg raised. In case you think the animation is just randomly switching directions just to fool you, try getting someone else to watch her with you. There will be times when each person swears she's spinning in a different direction!

So spill: Are you right-brained or left-brained??
