Another interpretation:

Your brain *decides* the direction of the movement by interpreting the outstretched leg moving behind and in front of the body. For example, if you see the leg to the right then assume it went to the back then left then to the front you see the dancer turning counter-clockwise.
Simply force yourself to interpret the movement as right-front-left-back and voila! (This can be aided by saying out loud the sequence you want to observe!)

Also, you guys are unbelievable with your interpretations! Keep using your imagination!

Oh, and yes, I looked at it frame by frame. 34 frames total. Just over 3 seconds to do a full rotation. It has fewer frames per second than optimal 25, making your brain fill in or "imagine" what happens between frames. So yes, originally I suspected super fast flickers, but they turn out to be slow. Point still stands.

And TeHrussian, you are an idiot. And it can easily be proved you are false by using a program (such as Jasc Animation Shop Pro) to view the individual images.

I don't know the logic behind the "above or below" theory, so I will not argue with it. But I do know about what you are arguing, so I can safely say you're false.

You need to follow your own advice. Learn what you're talking about before you open your mouth, mmkay?

Let me dumb it down for the people that don't get it. Get any object like a doll or even a pencil and make it rotate clockwise in front of you as you are looking down at it. Then WITHOUT CHANGING THE DIRECTION OF THE ROTATION lift it above your head and look at it from below.. it will be counterclockwise. Same concept with this picture.

A good way to get it go whichever way you want is to watch her foot.

If you watch her foot, youll notice her toes can be focused to always be pointing towards the viewer.

Just watch the toes waggle left anf right. And if you want her to go clockwise, quickly focus your attention on the entire picture as the toes are going left.

This works for me everytime, and you may want to practice by finding a way to slow the image down. :)

I don't think you're supposed to look that far into it, you're supposed to base it off of the first thing you see.

I stared at it for over a minute, its impossible to see it counter clockwise because the foot is traveling from right to left, not left to right.
I tried really hard to perceive it counter clockwise... u must have to have brain damage to see it counterclockwise

I can't see it, I am apparently so creative that I can't fool my brain into believing that it goes both ways.... I tried and tried....can't do it..

I think it's more of a "If you're smart it turns clockwise, left, dumb...both...retarded."

You're a moron coz that isn't the point of the picture. I'm not talking about infinite flicker rates or making her spin different directions because you CANNOT do that. She spins the same direction the whole time. It is a matter at what angle or perspective you are looking at her spin from. STUPID.

Also, looking at the comments, it seems that it actually tests for close-mindedness. People just refuse to open up to the idea that she can be seen spinning both ways! Maybe that's the REAL test? Hmmm

Below or above what? I can make her spin either way at will without taking my eyes off the screen.
Sorry if you don't understand that your eyes don't have infinite refresh rate. If the image flickers just at the right rate, your brain will interpret movement based on the information it has, filling in the blanks.

Perfect example: as a car accelerates (at a certain speed - frequency) if you look at wheels, for a few moments it will seem like they are spinning backwards.

Don't tell people they're wrong until you have a theory you can back up by actual knowledge of the subject. Kthxbye!

I saw it go both ways,
first clock wise than anti clock wise.

Which doesn't say much for the test.

She's obviously moving clockwise, I don't understand at all how you could see her moving counter-clockwise... look at her feet

So wrong.. it has nothing to do with the flickers. It has to do with whether you are watching her spin from below or above coz she is spinning the same direction the whole time. God, I swear.

I can tell you exactly how it works:
It flickers images for both rotations at a high frequency and depending which frequency you "tune" into (see first), your eyes keep tracking it. Your brain automatically ignores the flicker of the other image and just fills in the blanks making the dancer appear to move clock or counter-clockwise.

To test this, look at the image and blink really fast for a few seconds, giving your brain a chance to miss a few flickers. If you catch it at the exact right time, you'll see her going in a different direction.

I don't believe there is any correlation between creative and logical sides of the brain and which flicker you see first. Furthermore, if it's possible to see it either way, then it can't be a definitive test.

So: FAKE!

Not sure if this will work for the rest of you but I saw her going ANTIclockwise... it only changed when i read the writing below and saw her out of the corner of my eye - then i could change it to do what i wanted

I saw it going counter-clockwise first, closed my eyes for a few seconds while thinking about seeing it go clockwise, opened my eyes and...TA-DA!! Clockwise!
But then I tried switching back, and couldn't. How Strange!!

If you want to see her going counter clockwise imagine you are watching her from below and you'll see her legs are spinning counterclockwise. She is spinning the same direction the whole time though.

The people who say that she is switching back and forth are FOOLING themselves and flat out lying. The dancer is spinning the same direction the whole time. She is spinning to her right. The clockwise and counter clockwise thing depends on the PERSPECTIVE (if you are watching her from above or below.)

Anyone who does flips and spins upside down already knows this junk. You people who say she switches back and forth are ridiculous coz that's not the point of this.

For those that want to control it, ignore the rest of the picture and focus on the lower legs. By just focusing on that, if you know what you're doing, you can begin to see it spin in the other direction, and control it. Then, focus on the rest of the pic and hey presto.
