Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine ( the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers )
a quick overview of this thing of ours…
All people are born with a potential to experience the world in three distinct and characteristic ways. Depending on which, we say that a person is a clark or a scott or a roger.
When we say, ‘experience the world’ we don’t just mean things about you, we mean the way you see the world, the assumptions you make, how you feel about other people; all are in keeping with the description of your type. Not as difficult as it sounds.
Try this: if you are a roger that means that you know that the world is based on rules and that people who know these rules gather in relationships and groups, sort of like a herd of animals does, common interests in common. (Stay with me, now) as a roger, to your very soul you know that the universe is quantifiable, knowable, organized. Furthermore, it is entirely natural for you to see the things in the world that demonstrate this quality of being quantifiable, as a result you tend to like things in an orderly, traditional arrangement. You are naturally attracted to work or study that reflects this, rogers tend to be engineers, accountants, judges, historians, members of the clergy, high school home ec teachers, girls’ gym class intructor. Anything that is based on natural organization, you will find a roger.
The same applies to clarks and scotts. What our personality type is goes way beyond likes and dislikes, aptitudes and interests. What we are, as personality types is demonstrated in what we do for work, what our idea of recreation is, who are friends are and what we reject the most in our daily lives. All in reflection, in support of our personality types: clark, scott or roger.
How this comes to be? That question is way beyond the scope of this Post. For today, lets just establish what the Wakefield Doctrine says about personality typing. One of the best things about this Doctrine thing is that you don’t have to take a test or a college course, you don’t have to pay someone money to test you and you don’t even have to know anything about psychology. None of the things that most of the other personality typing systems do. All you have to do: be able ( and willing!) to step outside yourself, to see beyond the most basic assumptions you make about life and reality. Do that and you can join us.
The other thing about the Wakefield Doctrine that we often hear is, “I read the description of the three personality types, sometimes I think I am a roger and other times it is clear I must be a scott. That must mean your theory does not work on me.” The reason this happens is that we are all born with the qualities of all three personality types, clarks and scotts and rogers; at some point in early childhood we settle on one of three, we become predominately a scott or a roger or a clark. The other two qualities do not go away, we always have them within and sometimes we will act like one of the other two types. So don’t worry too much if it seems you are disproving the Doctrine, roger.
So thats it. The Wakefield Doctrine. Step A.
Everything else on this site is about the Doctrine. We are either discussing the Doctrine (Comments and Posts) or we are illustrating the Doctrine(Pages and Posts) or looking at photos of people demonstrating the Doctrine or dressing in Doctrine fashion ( Fashion Center) or just listening to music. It’s all good. If you want to learn more about this thing, have at it.
