She never flips for me. She's always anti-clockwise. I can't even see how she could be the other way. I suspect it's because my imagination loads her with too many assumptions in my 3-D visualisation of her, that's to say I see her as a solid not as the flat that she is.

It doesn't flip for me if I'm looking directly at it, but if I focus for a second on a point about the same height as the image below, it flips every time.
