Mind Games

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



Most people see the figure spinning in just one direction. If she turns both ways for you then you have a 160 or better IQ. You can make her turn the other way, or alternately turn back and forth, by looking at the top right or bottom left of the pic.

This is pretty cool. Someone posted it here on the forum last year - it may have been Aaron.

I love these sorts of illusions.

These are fun. I like it when she is constantly going back and forth. It's like she doesn't spin in one direction total but spins part one way then changes direction and spins the other way. But it's also fun to watch her spin full circles and being able to change the directions consciously.

Do you have some pages with info on these types of things? I would be interested to read about it. I've seen this same one on youtube a while ago about "ascension" or something like that. If I recall correctly I've seen another one too.

I didn't know about the corner trick. I just scrolled down and re-read about it then tried it. That's neat. I always just stared at her mid-section.

I just found this earlier today. I found it in a round about way from something I saw here but forget how I got there. Fortunately I bookmarked it: Here The youtube video of it slows down the spin rate at one point so I think it is easier to see it change directions at that time.

that is pretty cool

I guess my left side was working, thats the only way i seen her spin at first. I kept looking at it.. thinking how in the heck can she spin the other way.. and out of no where she starting spinning right lol

If i look at her stretched out leg its easier for me to change her direction.

thanks for sharing.

Optical Illusion



You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical, the blue landscape reads the word illusion. Look again!

Good one!

It would be interesting to know what it means (left brain vs right brain) if one sees one word before the other.

For instance, when I first saw the graphic, I saw the word "Illusion." However, before I even read the rest of the post, I focused slightly differently and saw the word "optical." I wonder what the significance of seeing the words in that order means vs seeing the words in the opposite order.

Heres a good link i found. It discusses some differences between each side of the brain. The page title actually says "left vs. right"... just what you asked for pamela lol.

Left Right* Hemisphere Brain Processing

The information seems to be dead on with me. I see the illusion with my left side. In the link they say people who think with the left side of theyre brain break situations into pieces and process them to create the whole picture. I program software in my free time and thats exactly how i have to process everything i encounter. I'm also left handed (no idea if that is any indicator).

Everything else in the left brain category also seems to describe me.

Left brain - Right brain

Here's a little test for you. Most people mess up badly the first time through, so don't feel bad. Give it a try.

Another Right Brain / Left Brain Dilemma

In this one, scan the words quickly from left to right and top to bottom, just as you would if reading the words quickly. For each word, say the COLOR of the word out loud, NOT the actual word. How far can you get on the first try, doing this quickly, at the same speed rate you would be capable of reading the words at?

Straight or Bent?


In this picture, are the purple horizontal lines parallel to each other, or do they bend somewhat?

illusions

I love all these things! Thanks for posting!

The dancer I saw long time ago and it is a good one to practice balancing
left and right by deliberately making the shift from one holding to the other
holding and repeat.

BTW, that MONEY one had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt!

Here is a pretty cool one... it is COMPLETELY STILL! It is one of the most
"moving" ones I've seen...

That last one moves as long as my eyes are shifting, but as soon as I stop my eyes from moving, the image stops moving.

Okay Pam, here's more:

Is this actually possible, and if so then what would make it possible?

Yellow Circles

Can you see yellow circles between the purple lines? If so, you see an illusion.
We only perceive these areas to be circles, but in reality no circles exist in this picture.
If you block out at least two of the purple lines adjacent to a "circle,"
you will see that the yellow coloration is consistent throughout the drawing.

Staircase

Start at any stair step on this winding staircase,
then imagine yourself walking down the stairs, in a
clockwise rotation. What happens, and how
is this possible?

The Black Dot

Look at this image from a steady distance of about 24 inches. Focus intently on the black dot at the center, and as time passes, the gray area surrounding the dot will begin to fade. When the gray has all but disappeared, move your head backwards suddenly, and what do you see?

How Many Shelves?

Quickly now! How many shelves do you see below?



Did you say 4? You probably did if you looked at the left end of the stack.

Did you say 3? Probably, if you were looking at the right end.

Both answers are wrong, actually, because only two complete shelf structures can be found in this picture - at the top and bottom. Thus, the correct answer is 2.

On a Roll...

This is a still picture, yet when you look at it you will likely perceive that there are three raised areas that appear to be moving, like rollers.

I like these things:


















Try out. What do you see in them. You need to focus your eyes behind the picture to be able to see the 3d shape that these pictures hold

Hard to believe, but...

Look at the picture below. There are two labeled squares - A and B. Which square is darker than the other?



Okay, that was easy. Obviously A is the darker square, right?


Wrong!


So does that mean B is the darker square?


Wrong again!


Both squares are the same shade of gray!


Now I know that you will not believe this, because no matter how you look at the picture above, square A definitely appears to be darker, but....


If you load the picture into a program such as Microsoft Paint, draw and label two square objects above and to the left of the checkerboard, separately sample the colors as found in squares A and B using the Eyedropper tool, and drop them into each square with the Fill tool, you will get the surprising result that I show below. I had to try this myself before I could agree that it's true.

Was wondering when someone was going to post these.

What is interesting is that you can see them in 3d in convex or concave.
Years ago, I could see them in convex (popping out from the page) and
sometimes concave (inverted into the page). Then at some point, it was
mostly concave and hardly ever convex and still like that today.

lol - just wrote that and then scrolled down to try the first one and
saw the 4 sided pyramid with spiral overlayed and it was convex! First
time in a long time I saw it pop out from the "page" instead of inverting
into the page.

lol - look at 2nd saw star pop out...went back now inverted and they're
all inverting for me now!

Where is the blue side - front or rear?

The translucent box shown below has one blue side, two yellow sides, and three clear sides. Nearly everyone initially perceives that the blue side is located at the left rear of the box. There is an alternative perception, however, in which the blue side appears to be at the left front of the box. Can you see it both ways?

Did that just move?

Look at the picture below. It is a still picture, but do you get the impression that the center square is moving slightly? To see the effect even more pronounced, use your mouse to grab the window's scroll bar and move it up and down. Alternatively, you can use a center-click scrolling mouse, or wheel mouse, to control the movement more slowly. Weird, huh?

Is someone hiding?

Up close, you can see that it appears someone may be hiding behind these vertical lines. Now move back about 6 feet from your monitor and the image becomes much clearer. Who do you see?





At close range, our focus is mainly on the vertical lines. As we move further away, the lines become less prominent and the larger image becomes the focal point.

I think that most people will see the word "ILLUSION" first, and that this is because we are used to normally reading dark text on a light background. The left brain is good at word recognition and reading, while the right brain is more focused on interpreting colors.
