Well, after staring at her for awhile and trying to figure out how a vertically oriented figure could be "clockwise" or "counterclockwise", I see her as "counterclockwise"... so I guess I'm an outlier here :)
I've been reading a book about ADD and organizing which asserts that people with ADD are overwhelmingly right-brained. I actually find it to be a frustrating oversimplification ... I use right brained modes of thinking when they're more useful, and left-brained modes of thinking when they're more appropriate, as in fact most people do. Does anyone know the science behind the alleged idea of hemispheric dominance?
