Right Brain or Left Brain

My friend posted this test on The Right Brain vs Left Brain test.

Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

Clockwise -> Right brain
Anti-clockwise -> Left Brain

So, I found myself using more right brain. But when I really focus few times on the picture, it switches to turn the other side, i.e. using my left brain. Try this, it is cool!

It is said that people normally see anti-clockwise. I find it hard to believe.

So, here is roughly my test result, which I felt is mostly true for me:

Use more feeling than logic
"Big picture" oriented rather than detailed oriented
Imagination rather than facts rules
Fantasy-based rather than reality-based
Impetuous rather than practical
Risk taking rather than safe

And, I do use my left brain sometimes, like trying to play safe, being practical and be more realistic. But that is mostly due to influence or a consequences of going through several mistakes.

Both left and right brain should function at most time. It will be great a find a good balance cause we cannot always live in our fantasy world, can we?

detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science

order/pattern perception

"big picture" oriented

It was midnight around 1 a.m. when I was posting this. I do not know whether my brain is switching or lazing.

I viewed the picture again multiple times just now and I could only see anti-clockwise. (left brain).

Really fascinating.

they say guy use right brain most of time. And guy sleep on the right too. That is because they know they are right most of time.

I think most of us use both brains, just different one at different time.

Yeah this is cool! Maybe we can train "our brain" and use this test for confirmation.

For e.g If you are unhappy with ur bf on certain emotional things, maybe can train ur brain to think logical..:)

another surprising fact about this picture is that it moves faster in Firefox compared to IE or even when I opened with other photo viewer.

I never know different browsers /editor has effect on the gif animation. :)

Also, I actually open this picture and showed to our team of around 15 persons. Just to be sure that there is no trick on the photo - that different ppl see different rotation at the same time.

TEAM - Are you a hare, owl, turtle or squirrel?

I just picked up The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen and found it to be very enlightening.

I like the "Multiple Streams of Income" and "Together Everyone Accomplishes Miracles - TEAM" concept.

For team concept, to create wealth - one must first build a diverse team as success is not a solo project. The diverse team consisted of four different categories of workers, known as the Hares, the Owls, the Tortoise, and the Squirrels. Each one has own strengths to leverage on to make the team successful.

Hare - Creative Types, but bad at follow-through.
Owls - Planners and go-getters.
Turtles - Cautious Types who point out issues.
Squirrels - Details oriented person who get the job done.

The one-minute millionaire site offer a survey to determine which type of worker you are. I found out to be a Hare, which I had guessed right. Here is the link to take the survey:

21 Irrefutable Laws of Relationship With Your Spouse. Rule No. 4: Law of Bullying Each Other

All of us are definitely no saints, so I guess, there are times we want to be a little bit cruel and act like a spoiled King or Queen.

I supposed most of us cannot behave like King or Queen in the workplace. If not, we risk being fired by our bosses or receive complaints from our colleagues. So, the best person where we can vent our frustration and madness are usually at our other half. Poor thing. Who say love has to be beautiful all the time?

Anyway, as long as we have fun bullying each other, it will be something exciting that we share in the relationship. Caution is - it has to be two-ways. When it is only one-sided, the relationship will stand a chance of being miserable, at least for the person who always get bullied. It also means, if you always get bullied, try to pick up the game and retaliate.

Do note that physical harm or aggressive behaviors are strictly not what I am talking about here. If your partner ever lay a hand on you so much as to cause you pain or small bruises, dum…

Myers-Briggs Personality Test

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which based the test on 16 personality types is popular among big corporation like Coco-Cola. While the cost to take the test is very high, there are several advantages of knowing what type of employees or colleagues you have. Once we know, it is easier to understand others differences in personality , work-styles and learn to deal with the different personalities. Ultimately, the team can work better together.The 16 personality types are derived from the eight basic personality preferences, mainly:Extroversion vs. Introversion
Where do I get my energy? From the external world or people (extroverts), or from data, ideas, or things (introverts).

Sensing vs. Intuitive
How do I perceive information? Sensing types relate to information from their senses (visual, tactile, auditory, etc.) Intuitive types look at the “big” picture – global, spiritual, the possible, the infinite...

Thinking vs. Feeling
How do I make decisions? Through logic (thinking) or through…
