Update: Which way is she spinning?!

Look at the spinning woman and if she is turning right your right side of your brain is working.

If she is turning left your left side of your brain is working.

If she turns both ways for you then you have a 160 or better IQ.

So, I received this email from a friend which has a bunch of brain teasers. Typically I've seen all of them already, but this was a new one for me. So I sat there for the longest time watching it spin - watching it spin RIGHT the entire time.

Then Jessi walks over and says, "Oh yeah, she spins both ways."


What followed next was a series of her telling me when it "switches" directions and me pointing out that, no, it is still spinning RIGHT.

It never got to the point of her making fun of me for my apparent lack of an IQ, but I wanted to put it out there. Which way is she spinning?

The good news? If she's spinning at all, I guess that means at least some part of your brain is working.

    Ok....So I received the same email from a friend last night. She goes both ways for me but when my husband watched her she only went one way. I did the same thing telling my husband when she would change but every time she was still going the same way in my husbands eyes. I did a little test this morning and I was actually getting her to change direction when I thought about which way I wanted her to spin. Very weird.

    i think if you can figure out why someone sees it spinning one way and another another, but you see it spinning both, you IQ is not 160.
