Quick...Draw a Circle!

Without thinking about it, quickly draw a circle.  Did you draw it clockwise or counterclockwise?

 A new study analyzed 119,000 drawings of circles from around the world and found that 86% of Americans draw the circles COUNTERCLOCKWISE.  And so do pretty much all of the other English speaking countries.

 There are only two countries where the majority of people draw circles clockwise: Taiwan and Japan.  The researchers think it could be because people write Chinese and Japanese characters right-to-left.
