Right Brain or Left Brain thinkers
(Excerpt) Read more at news.com.au ...
Watch this video of the ballerina. She turns left or right when you first look at her. This tells you the side of the brain you think with. If she is turning left, it means you think with a scientific mind, if she is turning right, it means you think more with intuition.
After you've noticed this I want to show you how to control your thoughts.
[b]If the ballerina turns right [/b], broaden your focus to the entire screen still noticing the ballerina (some people concentrate on the feet). Since she is turning right, start doing a complex math problem in your head, to some it may be a square root problem to some it may just be adding numbers or the multiplication table). You will see the ballerina change to turning left.
[b]If the ballerina turns left[/b], broaden your focus to the entire screen still noticing the ballerina (some people concentrate on the feet). Since she is turning left, start thinking about an emotional situation, something that makes a true emotional change in your system. You will see the ballerina change to turning right.
Now realize that the only truth in this picture is that there is a ballerina, it is your thoughts that create your reality. It isn't the event that changes your life but your reaction to the event. You can change your life with the change in perception. Man those are some of the most powerful thoughts you can ever give to yourself. We create our own problems by ignoring the input around us.
Can’t get her to turn counter-clockwise now matter how I look at her nor what I think about... :-)
You’re bipolar. Seek help.
She goes clockwise for a while and the other way.
This seems silly to me. I don’t know why it means anything.
There’s a Harley in that picture? :-)
Counter-clockwise was my first view. I could only change it by closing my eyes and imagining her rotating in the opposite direction in my mind. Then when I opened my eyes she’d be moving in that new direction.
What’s holding the bike up?
This is like one of those gag beer coasters that says “Please see other side” on both sides. There is no way at all that this is anything but a video of a ballerina, turning right, then turning left, then turning right ...
Uh, is there a Harley in the picture somewhere? This is some sort of trick, right?
The Earth is bipolar. I’m multidimensional.
really interesting post
Or, 3) Hotchick on a Harley brained?
I’m able to see the ballerina going either way without thinking about anything - what’s that mean?
So am I. We are ambidextrous. I was born left handed, taught to write right-handed, now I find it difficult to tell right from left.
Some people are born ambidextrous.
Far as I know, I’ve always been right handed. For some reason, though, I can see both sides of perceptual images that have two visual interpretations.
Interesting. Maybe you’re *secretly* ambidextrous, and have kept the knowledge from yourself....:D
Hmmm. One of my other personalities perhaps?
You could ask...
No, not really. Each one is unaware of the other ones.
Things that make you go, “Hmmmm....”
She doesn’t even get comfy twisting one way with me - she just keeps flipping back and forth too fast for me to tell which way she’s spinning before she’s changed it.
Either I also think like a politician =P, or the way I see motion is still messed up from that concussion...
Well, that’s just the psychologist in me I guess.
To get her to turn right, you will want to think on things you find emotionally upsetting or exciting. Use a visional outcome of a problem
The best decisions in life balance both logic and intuition.
When you start to gain control over her direction, you are getting control of your emotions when making decision. I found that using both sides of the brain will give you a larger perspective on solutions.
I’ve wondered about people like myself, all my life. I can mirror write cursive, but it looks like a 7 yo’s handwriting. When I had eye surgery (radial keratotomy) the doctor could not determine my dominant eye. And, I cannot tell right from left without some mental tricks. I can’t always tell what hand I write with...
One of the most practical uses I’ve done with this, is to allow my children to understand that THEY are responsible for their view on life.
NO ONE can MAKE you think a certain way, it is what you bring into your mind and how you want to process it. If something is bad, you will see it that way and NO ONE can make you see it any other way. IT is you that decides how you think, and it is only you that will ultimately deal with the consequences.
NO ONE else can make you do anything, I can’t make you turn that ballerina, I can suggest the topic, I can feed your mind, but ultimately you are responsible.
Then you have more control over you thought processes. I’ve gotten to where I can concentrate on left brain and she turns left, and I can concentrate on right brain and she turns right.
She does not turn at all but just goes back and forth, right and left.
Talk about the things that makes a person go, “Hmmmmmm”!!!
That is more of a whole brain thinker. A person that balances logic and emotion when making decisions. That is what I would consider the ultimate goal.
Yeah, and it drives my wife crazy (LOL)
I personally find it a mind bender and a great teaching tool for responsible thinking.
Perhaps that says something about the types of people who frequent the other blogs?
a non thinker.... fits with the others
I want to know why the bike doesn’t fall over when there’s no stand visible.
Mistake: Should be: I can mirror write cursive with my left hand, but it looks like a 7 yo handwriting. I normally write with my right hand, but I have to turn the page quite a bit to the left to get a normal right slant. And this makes perfect sense to me, although probably not to anyone else. LOL!
That’s using the same side of the brain as reverse speach I guess...smile
“Paul is dead, Paul is dead”... or am I showing my age
daed is luaP, actually. :D
When I first opened the page she was spinning counter clockwise but when I focused on her legs she spun clockwise. Now I can only get her counter clockwise if I look at her with peripheral vision.
This is deep... pass the.....Phelps.
Stare at the photo and see if you can locate the automobile that is hidden somewhere in the picture. Time yourself.
Interestingly, women tend to find the auto faster than men.
What is interesting, realize that if you are sitting at the terminal NO ONE CAN DEMAND you change her direction, only you can do that.
No one controls how you think, but they can suggest things to think on that will modify the way you think. Is this what TV does to us, we start to find this humor acceptable and start to create our own decisions based upon how they fed our brain.
Heck I even saw the wheels spinning.
Hey, there’s no car in this picture!!! What’re you pulling here?
I see what you mean. It took me about 5 minutes to see the car. My wife saw it right away...
Thinking an emotional thought or two does nothing.
My point is that it is only you that controls the direction of her turning. No one can make a person to perceive a stiuation except the person themselves. When you listen to the media, you start to build tools to perceive what you see. Be careful of what you listen to because it does build the tools for perceiving a reality.
