Video Friday! A Conversation with a roger (about) the 3 personality types of the Wakefield Doctrine

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine ( the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers ). 
The Calendar on the wall says it’s Video Friday already! This week we are fortunate to have DownSpring Phyllis as our guest, and she gives us a particularly telling, (yet with a humor and charity not always found among our rogerian friends) insight into the world of rogers! As with DownSpring Joanne, Phyllis had so much to offer that we extended the interview into Parts 1 and 2.  Enough introduction! Click dat arrow!!

You know, this idea of getting people to talk about the Doctrine and hearing how others are relating the Wakefield Doctrine to the world seemed like a good idea when we started, but now that we are already up to Episode 13, I must say it is turning out to be better than even I hoped! Most of you (reading this) have a certain level of interest/understanding of the Wakefield Doctrine.  As Readers know, it has often been said that one of the biggest challenges we face taking the Doctrine to the world at large, has nothing to do with the Doctrine itself being ‘good enough’. The hurdle (we face) is communicating this thing of ours to three different personality types. What makes a scott sit up and pay attention is not always the best approach when trying to get a message across to, say, a clark. A writing style that clarks enjoy (parenthetically speaking) is lost on scotts and rogers.
That is why these Video Friday interviews are so promising.
Never mind reading about rogers and how they see the world as a quantifiable universe with rules and such,  just listen to this roger tell you how she sees the world! And if you have been doing your homework and reading and understanding the Doctrine, you will recognise from what Phyllis is telling us, that she exists in a slightly different kind of world than does your clark or your scott.

…now, how cool is that?

We thank DownSpring Phyllis for taking the time to talk to us and I am  sure we will be hearing from her again.

If there is any brave souls out there who would like to join us as a guest on Video Friday, write us a Comment and I will follow up.  Hey, it’s fun!

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

    rogers “controlling from the back”…fascinating, and helpful clarification.

    Question 1 for Downspring Phyllis: how quickly can a roger uncover the imposters in white coats among them (clarks)? and secondly how does the majority (herd) deal with the spanking (pun intended) brand new scottian white coat?

    Will come back for answers after I listen to Part Two of what is without doubt a very informative discussion about rogers and the Doctrine.

    Thanks Phyllis. Very interesting, if not eye-opening, look into the mind of a roger. As Progenitor Clark has been saying as of late, we continue to learn more about the aspects of the Doctrine as we progress with these interviews. The Doctrine video format itself it is proving to be quite compelling for both ourselves and our readers hearing it from the horse’s mouth if you will. There is a different clarification that comes from each type (clarks, scotts and rogers) that can not be gotten from the written word.

    The fact that rogers “lead from behind” was actually very surprising. Given the characteristic traits of the rogers I don’t think that would have ever been necessarily apparent.

    I don’t think we are trying to uncover the imposters. Sometimes though, everyone in the room is speaking one language and one person is speaking another language. We don’t understand, and so gravitate to those we do understand.
    When a new Scot comes in with a lab coat, and speaks very loudly, and has an opinion on everything because he/she read an article in school, we tend to smile and knock him/her down a peg. (Usually by giving a very menial task).
