The Turning Girl IQ Test

turning girl IQ test illusion yale

I though this amazing twirling ballerina illusion was an apt metaphor for business and life.

You and I might be looking at exactly the same thing, but we may both see something different. Consider this next time you think about product design, or find yourself at odds with customers or employees.

So — What direction is the ballerina turning in the image above??

If you see this lady turning clockwise you are using your right brain.

If you see her turning anti-clockwise, you are using your left brain.

Some people can see her turning both ways, but most people see her only one way.

See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain’s current.

If you can switch between seeing her turn either way at will without shifting your gaze, your IQ is above 160 which is almost at genius level!

This was devised at Yale University for a 5 year study on the human brain and its functions.

Only 14% of the US population can see her move both ways
