I have no idea if this is scientific or not. I have no idea if it's accurate or not. I only know that I saw one thing. Being completely skeptical, I handed the laptop to my husband. He saw the opposite. When my daughter walked into the room as this was unfolding, I asked her to take a look. Her response, "Both."
This has been around for a long time. It's on You Tube. It's appeared in a number of publications. It's been the topic of blog posts.
You tell me. In what direction is this dancer moving? First observe and then scroll below.
Keep Scrolling...... I don't want to skew anyone's brain.
Apparently, the majority of us will see this dancer moving counter-clockwise. Purportedly, if you see her moving to the left (counter-clockwise), you are more "left-brained." Clockwise, if this is to be believed, you are more "right-brained" and in the minority.
Could it be this is just one of those "harebrained" things which would be defined as something "foolish, absurd or ridiculous." I always tend to use the Merriam Webster as my gold standard although, dictionary.com and thefreedictionary.com use similar words in their definition of harebrained.
I like the synonyms used by Merriam Webster, too. In addition to those listed: birdbrained, featherbrained and scatterbrained..... I DO think I should petition Messrs. Merriam and Webster to include CHEMOBRAINED on that list of synonyms.
And... in case the curiosity has you on the edge of your seat.
Clockwise. She's moving clockwise.
The link to the daily telegraph where I first saw this can be found here. Not only does it explain what each half of our brains are responsible for, it says if you focus, YOU can change her direction. I wasn't successful. The You Tube video has a little "help" if you play it through to the end. Without the help? Clockwise all the way for me.
I wonder how I might have seen this pre-chemo, pre-cancer. I know when I read the left-brain characteristics, that WAS me in another lifetime. It may not be scientific on any level, but for me, just one more bit of silly validation.
All I know? I Am Right.
Comments Now Closed..... You can leave a comment on any other blog post and I will transfer it over here. This has been another "spam" post. As I find them, I am closing comments. Please note, I read the comments in chronological order so if you post something today, even though this post is from February of 2013, I will see it. Blogger found ways to make sure I don't miss a comment. They work hard to stop the the spam..... Spammers, however, are like cancer. They learn how to change just enough to avoid the spam filters. Cancer pisses me off...spammers, too... Go AWAY.....
