    Try this experiment if you are at a desk

    I know this has been posted before but it was last posted here 4 years ago so I guess its time to post it again.

    Follow these instructions:
    1) Lift up your right foot off the ground and rotate it clockwise.

    2) Whilst doing that take your right hand and draw the number 6 in thin air.

    What you will notice:
    Your right foot is suddenly rotating anti-clockwise

    Interesting, reminds me of that mind test where it looks like the dancer is spinning clockwise but if you look it switches to counter clockwise.

    Are you sure you are not cheating by drawing the 6 from the inside?

    I know that it doesnt effect some people but I would guess that 80-90% of people it works for.

    This doesn't seem to affect me.
    Maybe Asperger's negates the effect?

    No matter how hard I try, I always screw up about halfway through drawing the 6... weird... can't do the motion in the YouTube video either.

    I just twitch for one second. However, my feet continue clockwise.

    I did however, went from drawing invisible 6's to drawing invisible 0's.

    That's a bad sign.

    Lol, I have tried to do this on several occasions and it never worked for me. The only reason I can think of is maybe because I'm left-handed...

    This is true though for the majority, I've heard of this in the past and witnessed it.

    Try using your left foot and making a reverse 6 using your left hand.

    Aye, I tried that and it still doesn't work lol. I'm also a good multi-tasker which could also have something to do with it...maybe?
