    Walau, I can only see ACW, my wife sees both ways and can see changed in directions. Try as I might I cannot see the changed in directions.

    I already know the answer, you're the one with the questions so I'm suggesting you to try to disassemble the frames comprising the animated GIFs so you can see for yourself.

    the point of the exercise is that there is no right or wrong answer. ACW is right, CW is also right. it's how your brain sees things and analyses information.

    if you see her spinning faster than what others see, doesn't that mean that your brain is processing the information at a slower speed?

    My wife even tells me when she changed directions and also ask me to look at the calf like you as saying, but can't see it. Walau, I have one track mind.

    which part of the person's body are you all staring at when she switched from CW to ACW?

    it has to do with your perception of front and back ... the figure is actually flat, 2D, but is perceived as 3D, so try to switch front to back and back to front

    For the rest, it helps to switch around if you can manage to view the spining at a slower rate. I've seen the same pic at other sites where the rate of spinning is slower and its easier to control the change. Or perhaps you can load it in a GIF editor and slow the FPS and resave it to try.

    btw ... the reflection below is a trick imagery, if she is spinning clockwise, the reflection is ''wrong'' if the space is perceived in perspective
