I’ve got nothing to say but it’s O.K. Good Morning, Good Morning.

Weekend.  Work or not-Work…still Weekend!  Let’s take advantage of this little quirk and take the Wakefield Doctrine out of the workplace/school and see what it can do for us on the weekend, in “the land of different time schedules” that  is the Weekend.  Come on Readers!  We are taking a leap, arbitrarily establishing the premise that for the next two days, your (day’s) schedule is more flexible, variable and most importantly, less employment-centric. (You may still go to work, but there is a different tone, feel, mood to the place, be it a factory or retail outlet or office building.)

(…”hey, you got to go in to work today? that sucks, dude”…”listen we really need some help Saturday, just in the morning…” “I want you to know we really appreciate your coming in today, I know you had plans…”) You know, that Weekend.

OK, Weekend milieu established.  What now?  How is the Doctrine, it’s use or application different just ’cause it’s the Weekend?  Mostly it is different because during the Weekend you are dealing more with family and friends, than co-workers.

Oh…  Oh… indeed!!  You sense the minefield that we encounter when the Wakefield Doctrine as applied directly to family and friends.

This is a rather intricate, subtle and difficult aspect of the application of the Wakefield Doctrine to our lives and will need quite some time to do properly, for today however, it’s the Weekend!  So let’s go easy on our own damn selfs. (An “Overview and Out Early” class, as the kids at Mill Fill would say.)

the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) is a unique, useful and fun way to understand the behavior of those in our lives, at home, at work/school and at play.  With the perspective of the Wakefield Doctrine, not only can we understand why they do the things that they do, we can predict how the people of our lives will act and/or react in any situation.
So the Weekends can be a very educational and instructive times for those of us interesting in seeing how (the principles of) the Doctrine are expressed by  our family and friends.  Some are too easy, your husband shows up head to toe in spandex plastered with corporate logos (the worse thing about this is that they are such common, ordinary corporate logos; Cox, Sprint, Staples. (Staples?!! Staples??!!! eiiee!! who the hell would want to be a fricken human sandwich board* for Staples?!) (Oh, I’m sorry I know the answer to that…rogers would want to be fricken sandwich boards for Staples…”How big is your herd?”)

Anyway.  You now can correctly identify the rogerian family members…easy one.
Scotts?….sorry, they have so already left the house or wherever they pretended to sleep…Never slow down.  Or your scottian daughter/wife/girlfriend/sister?  See the crowd gathering at the beach/lake/mall/backyard barbecue…all the guys facing the same direction…with the logos on their backs? just above the little fannypack thing?…there she is…lol What? where are the girls and women?…find your scottian son/husband/boyfriend/brother? that’s where everyone else at the beach/lake/barbecue/campsite/backyard is…

clarks? you want to find your clarklike daughter/son, wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend, brother/sister? jeez I don’t know… (not!).  Hear that weird music with the clicking of  a computer keyboard?…off in some corner…probably writing a blog or someth….

* sandwich board, an outdated form of advertising…a person who was paid to wear a sign on their front and back, connected by a suspender sort of thing and they would walk up and down the sidewalk a pedestrian area…very low level marketing, not exactly high level employment

the Doctrine is nothing, if not diverse…lol

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one
