Men usually think more with the left side and women with the ride side. Left side is fact based and right side is emotion based. They say, when someone feels really sad (love sick for example) to keep them busy with math and cross-words, etc. which calms down the hyperactive right side and therefore lifts the mood. Maybe that is the reason why women like to go shopping when they are sad. Shopping = calculating outfits + money = math.

how do you explain the excessive "emotional snacking and eating"?

Those are triggered by hormons. Totally different topic.

It doesn't "change" directions. It you look at it one way, she's spinning one way (right leg up, standing on left). If you look at it another way, she's spinning the other direction (left leg up, standing on right).

I can see it both ways anytime I choose to look at it differently.

If you gave trouble switching, just block everything but the bottom foot with your hand and she'll switch on you.

But, she IS turning CCW logically.
If you watch her shadow closley, you'll see it only makes sense if she was turning CCW.

Even though I am more the type of person (logical, math, etc) that is "supposed" to see it at first glance going CCW, I see it CW at first glance. But again, if I take a sec to look, I can see her going the other way as well.

Tis' easy. Reminds me of the picture of either 2 faces looking at each other or a lamp in the center. Some people see it one way, some see it the other. It's done that way on purpose.
