Obviously Right-Brained

This clever little animation is making its rounds at my job, so I figured I'd share. It's an animation of a dancer spinning, and according to the article some people see it spinning clockwise, and others counter-clockwise, and this is supposed to tell you whether you're right-brained or left-brained.

That's what they claim, but to be honest, this looks to me like it's obviously spinning clockwise. Most optical illusions will shift if you concentrate or look at it askance, but not this one. The woman is absolutely and only spinning clockwise.

Anyone who says differently is a left-brained communist.

Redbull.....At first glance it was turning counter clockwise but then it starting turning clockwise. Now it only spins in clockwise. I was left brained for 12 seconds!
