  1. Both, but it takes concentration to switch. Doesn't help that I'm listening to "Kei's Song" by David Benoit, which seems fairly appropriate for her dancing. ;)
  2. both

    someone truly brilliant and insightful (but sadly, butt ugly) already mentioned that you need to watch the foot that's sweeping around .. when your initial perception sees it as sweeping infront, just make yourself see it as actually sweeping behind and coming around to the front

    i find that a bobby pin clamped to your ocular nerve helps too

    Both, but it seems I can't switch it very easily. I closed my eyes and rotated them the opposite direction of what I saw and it seemed to work.
  4. Clockwise and nothing else. Argh makes me feel like some kind of artsy airhead.
  5. Last time I did this [over two years ago?], I hadn't picked up my bass again after a long lay-off. I was seeing it "left-brained" 90% of the time:

    Now that I'm playing bass again quite a bit, I'm seeing her spin clockwise, or "right brained":

    ...reminds me of opening credits of those '60s/'70s era James Bond movies. ;)

    Anyone remember those "stereograms/3-D" & whatever they were called (early '90s?)....ya know, you stared at them until they popped out at you.
    I always saw the 3-D image going INTO the page. Everyone else I knew sawing the 3-D image coming out of the page.

    Initially counter-clockwise. If I close my eyes for a couple seconds, then look again, I'll see her going the opposite direction. It's real easy for me to have her "switch" directions.

    Doesn't the shadow cast by her right foot always come from the right? If so, I can't see how she could be rotating any other way than clockwise.

    This is easy. Look, and see which way it appears to you. For me, it's usualy counter-clockwise at first.

    But then focus on the leg sticking out. If you see her going counterclockwise, then her sticking-outleg is her left leg.

    If you see her going clockwise, it's her right leg.

    Also, see here:

    Her clockwise spin is clumsier than her counter clockwise spin.

    Clockwise at first then I realized I could switch it by looking away.
