Hey I saw that once in a clickbait ad. Can you see which way the ballerina is spinning?? Only two percent of people get it right!! Guess here and Win 2000€!!!
@A pet named Steve, but, she goes both ways
@Jakobian, hooray, 2000€ for you!
@A pet named Steve, yay
@A pet named Steve, I rember that, me and my brother thought it wasn't even a trick. And I remember saying it's obvious she's spinning left, and my brother was like what do you mean she's spinning right. And we got Into a fight over it
@A pet named Steve, I can make it spin both ways at will. What do I get? *crosses fingers and wishes for German chocolate*
@mssj7000, you get an exquisite German Kartoffel!
@A pet named Steve, The funny thing is, she goes both ways based on your prediliction of movement. For example, as a left-hander, she spins anticlockwise. A right-hander, on the other hand, might see her as spinning clockwise, given that the spin direction is based on our handedness.
@A pet named Steve, impossible, can't be done.
@A pet named Steve, Yesh!!
Aaaand it's gone. *urp*
Crossing my eyes just made it worse!
Ok so, this is extremely interesting to me. The middle image is used as a test to determine a person brain habits (I don't remember the exact details at the moment) but it's supposed to be extremely rare to be able to see both directions. I stared at it once for 12 minutes trying to turn it around to see if I could and only got it to rotate the other way for a moment. This gif, enables me to do what my brain naturally can't. This will probably get lost in the sea of comments but I'll post it anyway.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, interesting. After reading your comment I covered the two outside gifs up completely and looked away from the image to 'reset' my brain. I then looked at the image and tried to switch it my self. It took maybe 10-15 seconds and I did it once, a few more and I was able to do it at will. It's just a rotating non-symmetric image, so I'm not sure how direction of your perceived rotation would give any insight to your mind. Sounds really neat though.
@FutureWhale, personally I think the use of it as a test was a little like trying to make a something out of nothing, but nonetheless I thought it was interesting that it was so difficult to change rotations for me the first time, and that others had various results with doing it themselves, some not able to at all. Weather or not it really has anything to do with mental ability I'm not 100% sold. But still!
IT'S A TRAP!!
This gif must have been messed with. I swear to god that I see the middle one just changing direction, no illusion or anything. Try focusing on their heads only instead of the rest of the body.
@Cap Obvious, it is an illusion. The one in the middle has no lines on it, giving you no sense of depth on the silhouette. The other two seem to spin in a defined direction though because one line is always rotating in front of the other. The gif has not been tampered with, your brain is just overcompensating for poor judgement, as usual. You're welcome
Everyone is talking about this being click bait, but I'm sitting here like "She's a wizard, she's levitating, you eggs!"
^the noise my brain just interpreted this ocular input as
Look between the left one and the right one, and you'll see different ones spinning different directions at once.
Cross your eyes while watching. Makes it more interesting.
