BRAIN GAMES and THINKER TOYS

If your brain works normally this is an amazing illusion.

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots will remain only one color, pink.

However if you stare at the black  '+'  in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black  '+'  in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.

*** There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.


DOING THE MATH

WHICH WAY DOES SHE TURN FOR YOU?   Counter or Clockwise?

If you see this lady turning in counter-clockwise you are using your left brain. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . If you see it her tuning clockwise, you are using your right brain.   Some people do see both ways, but most people see it only one way.
See if you can make her go one way and then the other by shifting the brain's current.

BOTH DIRECTIONS CAN BE SEEN.

Experimentation has shown that the two different sides or hemispheres  of the brain are responsible for different manners of thinking. The following table illustrates the differences between left-brain and right-brain thinking:

LEFT BRAIN

Logical                         
Sequential                  
Rational                         
Analytical                     
Objective                        
 
Looks at  parts                             

RIGHT BRAIN

Random
Intuitive
Holistic
Synthesizing
Subjective
 
Looks at wholes

Most individuals have a distinct preference for one of these styles of thinking.  Some, however, are more whole-brained and equally adept at both modes. In general, schools tend to favor left-brain modes of thinking, while downplaying the right-brain activities. Left-brain scholastic subjects focus on logical thinking, analysis, and accuracy. Right-brained subjects, on the other hand, focus on aesthetics,  feeling, and creativity.

If you look away, she may switch from one direction to the other.

Look at her feet or relax and look at the floor where the reflection shows, she will switch direction!

Disorder in the Courts

These are a few excerpts from a book called Disorder in the Courts of America.  They are things people actually said in court - word for word - taken down and now published by court reporters who had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place. We'll continue to add to the transcript snippets. 

ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.

ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.

ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?

ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?
WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.  
ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.
