    I'm right handed and she looks like she's spinning clockwise. I think the interpretation depends on if you view the rotation from the bottom or the top.

    Clockwise at first, then it changed every five seconds or so as I stared at it. Didn't vote, haven't opened the spoiler yet.

    I suppose if it switches up for ya, just vote for that which it most often appears to you. For me, for instance, I get mainly clockwise though it has switched a couple times into counter-clockwise.

    Could a mod perhaps add an option for "it alternates between the two fairly evenly" or something?

    I'm left-handed and I can't make her turn anything but counter-clockwise.

    Counter-clockwise. All the time.

    What the heck, does this make me all linear and stuff? I could never remember the difference between right and left brained.

    Edit: Never mind, I got it to spin the other way. =D

    It keeps randomly switching back and forth for me. Though it was originally clockwise.

    First I saw her go counter-clockwise. With a little effort, she started going clockwise. That's a cool image :)

    Clockwise, can't get her to turn counter clockwise. I even tried to tilt my head and squint. :)

    Edit: If I try to focus on her to se if I can get her to spin the other way she just speeds up.

    What direction is it spinning. How is it moving. There must be some kind of truth. I see it spin clockwise and I can't see it differently.
