Which way do you spin - left or right?

http://lateralaction.com/articles/left-brain-or-right/

I saw the dancer spinning clockwise.  This apparently means I am more right brained. 

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS

uses feeling
“big picture” oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can “get it” (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking

I can live with that assessment.  Except the spatial perception.  I do not have that ability.

There is an explanation for how the illusion works at the end of the article.  Pretty cool.

my husband and youngest daughter saw it counter clockwise.

both of my sons saw it clockwise. That surprised the heck out of me. I always think of Teddy as being very logical and left brained.
