You're lucky it hasn't gone 'bang' yet. If you keep swopping wires over for long enough, it will! Seriously, you need to understand what the wires are first. Unless your wiring is very old and dodgy, the reason why the light dimmed is because you've conncted it in series with the other lighting circuit. You need to look at a diagram of how lights are connected before you do it. Happy to answer any questions though.

Please go to the projects section and read the project on 2 way lighting. Also look at the other electrical projects to get some idea of how the lighting system works.
