left brain.right brain.no brain

Ok, for some reason this test has been making all the blogging rounds.

I saw it a couple of weeks back, and saw that I am dominantly right-brained, but the switch happens randomly and without my trying. If I deliberately try to switch the direction, nothing happens.

I guess I don't have much control over my own brain. Quel surprise...

Also, why is she nude? Is that essential to the test?

I've been to that website a few times because I've been monitoring just how long it will stay the #1 most popular 'news' story. I have too much time on my hands, but think it's kinda funny.

At first I saw anti-clockwise and couldn't switch directions. Then I checked back later and it was clockwise, and I couldn't change directions. So now I'm just confused.

i read some comments by people who can switch the direction totes at will. i can only do it if i occupy my brain with something else for a bit, and go back to it.

plus, the dominant characteristics of right/left seem a bit suspect to me, as i perceive myself to be a mix of both.

but then again, we all are...

Wow, what a crazy thing! I can't make the dancer switch directions and neither can my husband - looking at it at the same time, he sees it as a left-brained person, and I see it as a right-brained person. I don't think it has much to with left and right brains in terms of feeling vs. thinking, but there is clearly some optical trick of the brain that is working differently in different people
