1. Take a look at the image below. What do you see?

2. Focus on the following picture and give a quick answer: Which stairs will you use to go up and which to go down?

3. There is a man’s head somewhere in this picture. Find him!

4. Do you see the girl rotating clockwise or counterclockwise?

1. Studies have shown that children cannot see the couple because they don’t have such images in the primary memory and instead see nine dolphins.

Note: This is a test for “dirty minds.” If you needed more than 3 seconds to see the dolphins then there is a kind of… problem! :mrgreen:

2. Most people who see this image tend to go up the left stairs and go down the right stairs. This reaction is likely to be influenced by the western way of reading from left to right. While those who read from right to left, like the Arabs, tend to give the opposite answer.

3. If you managed to find the man in 3 seconds, then the right part of your brain is more developed than in the average person.

If you found him in about 1 minute, the right part of your brain is of the average person.

If you needed more than 1 minute to find him, the right part of your brain is slow.

4. If you see the girl rotating clockwise, then you are using the right hemisphere of your brain at the moment, and vice versa.

The right hemisphere represents people with artistic flair. The left hemisphere instead is linked to rationalism and generally organized mathematical thinking.

If you can see both directions of rotation, you are likely to have an very high IQ level. Although there is no evidence for this, anyone who can see both directions certainly has a balance between organized thinking and more chaotic, creative thinking.

      the 3d one means that your right hemisphere is normally developed. didn’t you see the dolphins at all?? i mean after reading the answer and going back to the primary picture (without red circles showing where the dolphins are) can you see them?

    if i scroll the rotating girl into view from the bottom i can see her rotating counter-clockwise.. but when all the picture is on the screen the instant that i open my eyes after blinking she moves clockwise again. problem with the doplhins.. can’t see just the dolphins. stairs.. chose left to go down cause they seemed more lit up couldn’t find any other way of looking at it. the man among the coffee beans i saw in about 10-15 seconds

    With the rotating girl. You can see both directions by changing your perspective. focus from the top of her head down and youll get one direction. Focuse from the bottom of the foot up and youll get another direction.

    It took me a while to be able to see the girl spinning go counter-clockwise, but I stared at her torso in order to finally see it. What’s difficult for me is getting it switched back immediately.

    One thing about the girl spinning counter-clockwise is that there’s a LOT more movement coming from her than when she spins clockwise.

    I can see the girl rotating both clockwise and counterclockwise. It really depends on which leg you believe she has lift up in the air (left or right). I don’t think it has anything to do with which brain sphere you are using, lol

    Even though the first time I thought she was definitely rotating clockwise after closer inspection I would say that it makes more sense for her to be rotating counterclockwise judging by the shadow underneath her legs. When she is rotating clockwise that shadow doesn’t make much sense, because the tip of the toes of her lifted leg throws a shadow on the left side of the picture but hardly any on the right side. When she is rotating counter clockwise her motion seems smoother and longer but if she is to rotate clockwise her motion seems not as smooth and more unnatural

    This is a good illusion for sure!

    Well in the picture of the rotating woman it switches from clockwise to counterclockwise, so there is the trick its not really that hard its pretty simple. All you have to do is be able to tell the difference. When the girl is moving to the left (counter) then the whole body of the girl is moving to the left and when the girl is moving clockwise, her whole body moves toward the right. On that note every time the girl switches the picture glitches so you should be able to tell the difference.

    “If you can see both directions of rotation, you are likely to have an very high IQ level. ”
    What do you mean by that? Both rotations at same time?
