      I see it spin clockwise, but it's easy to change it when you get the hang of it. Look at the her feet or the shadow, flick your eyes and do it mentally

      Absolutely!!
      With the restraint of the fact that most savants donīt have a disturbance in right-left hemispheric connectivity.
      But some do.

      Savant syndrome is poorly understood. No widely accepted cognitive theory explains savants' combination of talent and deficit.

There ought to be an option for both.
      Yupp - that is actually what you really "objectively" are shown here, says the article.

      And for the record (just so that I'm not jumping in here solely to be contentious ), I've been acquainted with this illusion for many months and have yet to ever see it spin counter-clockwise...
      Yes!!
      See tips below for having it switch - good luck with it!

      I found it helpful to read the article below - not only for content, but while you focus on reading the text - the figure does itīs own thing to your mind and switches if you donīt directly focus on it.

      I could do it, when I first saw it some years ago - but I had problems just now - until reading that article.

      Thanks - great article - best I read it explained!

      The image is not objectively “spinning” in one direction or the other.

      It is a two-dimensional image that is simply shifting back and forth.

      But our brains did not evolve to interpret two-dimensional representations of the world but the actual three-dimensional world.

      So our visual processing assumes we are looking at a 3-D image and it uses clues to interpret it as such.

      Or, without adequate clues it may just arbitrarily decide a best fit – spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise.
      And once this fit is chosen, the illusion is complete – we see a 3-D spinning image.

      By looking (somewhere else) around the image, focusing on the shadow or some other part, you may force your visual system to reconstruct the image and it may choose the opposite direction, and suddenly the image will spin in the opposite direction.

      Seems itīs indeed most peopleīs default interpretation - going clockwise.
      I donīt know if itīs about "forward" - maybe rather that most people are right-handed and -footed and such tend to turn clockwise, if only asked to turn.. not completely sure there, though.


      I really love this illusion!!
