She goes clockwise for me.  I can't get her to turn counterclockwise no matter how hard I try.

Round an' round...

What direction do YOU see?

Clockwise. A few days ago I was able to see it counterclockwise after I read the text and comments (I'm guessing something about the movement of my eyes while reading switched it), but I've never been able to duplicate it and can only see it clockwise now.

This has popped up in a few places over the past two weeks and when I first look, I always see it going clockwise. I can make it switch at will with a bit of practice - I find staring at the lower foot or the shadow does the trick.

Oh, hey, that's useful. I can make it switch by staring at the shadow too. (Thanks for the idea :-))

Welcome! :)

I start with her going clockwise. If I look with only one eye at a time, I can eventually get her to switch.

Interestingly, there's a protracted transition period where she's going clockwise but her shadow is going counter clockwise.

Anyone else have that experience?

Counterclockwise, then I looked at the text, then looked back and the figure was immediately going clockwise. No effort on my part. Guess my brain is just all mixed up.

Two more thoughts on this:

1. I really doubt the left brain/right brain analysis of this. Rather, it seems likely a measure of eye quality. I think the sense of depth comes from the same place as that dark-lens, clear-lens form of 3-D that they did some stuff with on TV, oh, some couple decades back (they had planned to do a Moonlighting episode using it, scuttled that due to schedule problems, and did a Super Bowl halftime that way instead.) The eye with the dark lens perceives the same image a fraction of a section after the clear-lensed eye does, and that created a perception of depth where none existed.
2. This is the Internet; are we at all surprised to see some sexy-looking gal who appears to swing both ways?

I agree about the right brain/left brain thing...but it is sort of fun. Check out my next post. :)

I just saw this on Suzanne's post. She's counter for me!

I was clockwise until I looked at it until the second time. Ha. :B

I don't know... what does that mean...? :P

I see clockwise - for a second I thought I could see counter, but I can't get it back.

I must be strange, but I saw counter clockwise. Am I doomed?
