Clockwise or Counter-Clockwise?

Manolo says, the Manolo’s friend Linda has alerted the Manolo (via the Professor Norm) to this fascinating visual test.

For the Manolo, the dancer is going clockwise, only by looking to his left and thinking about doing his taxes can the Manolo convince the dancer to go anti-clockwise, but as soon as he blinks, she returns to her previous clockwise dance.

These results do not especially surprise the Manolo, except that the Manolo believes himself as being exceptionally verbal.

Go now and take this test and report your findings back to the Manolo

    Like the Naomi, I found that the shadow is the key. I could see her turning clockwise, then counter, then clockwise. I was surprised to find my first impresion was right-brained, too. Then I could not see counterclockwise again until I focused on her shadow toes, which seem to lead her counter-clockwise. Focusing on the graceful flow of her hands makes her seem clockwise again, to me. Fascinating!

    It’s a hoax. She changes direction on her own after a set amount. Watch her for a while and see.
