Found this on the homepi of a Cyworld buddy of mine. She also scooped it from one of her buddies’. According to the original author, the lady in silhouette must look like spinning clockwise to people with right brain dominance and anticlockwise to left-brained ones. The author also adds that if you can see it both ways around at will, your brain is well developed and balanced.
I am sure you have heard of the concept (myth?) of hemispheric dominance: i.e. the two different hemispheres of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking, and if your right brain is dominant, you are better at intuitive, holistic and synthesising activities while the left brain dominant prefer logical, analytical and sequential approaches to a subject. And I understand this is where the age-old question in feminism comes in – are there innate gender differences in maths and science, and consequently, are there jobs that women are genetically more and less suited to, or masculinity/femininity is a socially constructed and maintained illusion?
Anyway, I took a glance at the picture, saw the lady spinning anticlockwise, and was about to discard it. I then found a comment left after the post saying the writer doesn’t buy it because the lady spins clockwise no matter how long the writer stares at her for. Ow, so she does look different case by case?! I don’t know how this works. Might be some eye tricks. Still, how about you?
