  • Drawing with both your hands (switch back and forth as you draw)

The Right Brain vs Left Brain test

Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.
Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

Click on the picture – you will find that it hows an animation of a lady spinning around.  If the research is true then the direction you see  her spinning suggests the side of your brain that is most dominant.  As a test,  see if you can get the lady to switch directions.  It’s difficult but with a bit of concentration you can do it.  Think about techniques you could use to achieve it.
