    when i first saw it, it was in clock wise. but then i kept reading the leftbrain/right brain part at the left hand side then suddenly i realised when i focused at the white space btwn the words on the left hand side and the image, i can actually change the direction.

    i duno if you guys get me actually. but i can change the direction using that! my dad thought i was crazy, staring at the computer and seeing some random shadow spinning....

    First clockwise, then anti clockwise...

    If i dun see spin later, does it mean I dun use any part of the brain?

    This is funny.

    I saw her first clockwise.

    Then anticlockwise.

    After a while, I could concentrate and make her change direction at wish.

    At some point, by only looking at her lifted leg, I was making her doing the infinity shape by switching sense every half turn.



    This is a cool and fun otical illusion but also a good concentration exercise.

    If you cannot see it! too bad for u.

    C CW then ACW then CW then ACW and on and on......

    How to switch, focus on the feet (straight leg with the smallest rotating point) and tell yourselves the direction, in a few seconds it will switch. Focus on the bigger rotating point can't get it to switch

    Coral and I were watching it together and each would say, "change" when it looked like it changed.

    We both saw it change a couple of times whilst watching it, but the changes were not at the same instants.

    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Wow...I'm able to see it change everytime the outstretched legs reaches the highest point...ON DEMAND! Of course this takes like 10 mins of practising and lots of brain bashing...

    My trick is too concentrate only on the outstretched legs. The outstretched hands, hair and shadow will serve to fixate the direction in which you first perceive.

    Another method that works for me, abeit much harder, is to concentrate on the circular plane marked by the toes of the outstretched legs. If you're able to switch from viewing from the top view and bottom view, you can see both CW and ACW.

    Cool stuff!

    I see her go both ways - sometimes switching every half turn...

    I always knew I was nuts...

    Edit: on the second attempt I could make her change direction every half turn, LOL!

    Interesting.

    Clockwise for me. So right brain.

    But I'm right handed, doesn't that make me a left brain?

    Finally, managed to see what my other family members sees, ACW & CW. Had to force myself look through two small holes I made in a piece of paper and slide it just nice to see it changed directions. Amazing, I had to resort to this in order to see it turn CW.
