That "turning woman" thing--what the hell?

Oooookay, no one seems to be answering my comments at this hour, so, since this is driving me bonkers, I'm seeing if anyone else has answers.

That "which way will the dancer turn" thing? I first saw it at a spot I can't link because it's a locked post, but the picture was still. It asked, "Which way is she turning?" and I looked and gave my answer based on how she was standing--how it looked like she would turn based on that pose--then you scroll down further and it says, "Click the picture to see her turn," and I did and I was correct, she was turning in that direction. Some people, the explanation goes, will see her turning in the other direction--but I assume once they click they find they were wrong, correct? And the question is "Were you wrong or right," and that links into the whole right-brain left-brain thing, whether that's accurate or not.

Because I'm really confused--people are starting to link to a page where the woman is already spinning. But why ask "Which way is she turning?" when she's already turning?? And why are people still saying they see different directions when she's already turning??
