Yup, it doesn't give you time to focus on getting it to switch. I found that if I paused it just as the spinnig started and focused on the feet I could start it back and get my brain to perceive her spining the other way. I think I'm one of those mixed up types anyway, though. Neither description applies to me. I tend to be very random and intuitive in my thinking on the one hand, but I'm not a "big picture" person by any means, and get sidetracked by detail all the time. I'm not logical, yet I can be obsessively analytical. My talents lie mostly in the realms of art, music and writing, yet I'm not particularly creative.
