A Basic Guide to the Wakefield Doctrine ( the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers )

The Wakefield Doctrine, also known as the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers  is a unique, useful and fun way to approach understanding (the) human personality.

There is more, much more!

Our goal in this little Primer is to give you the basic elements of the Wakefield Doctrine!

The Wakefield Doctrine holds that all people are born with the potential to experience the world in (one) of three characteristic ways, and that at an early age we settle into one of these ways of seeing the world. At this point we are said to become clarks or scotts or rogers. While our experience in life is predominately one of these three worldviews, we never lose the capacity to see the world as the other two types.

This blog has a table of contents, or tabs or some damn thing that will take you to Pages that are devoted to descriptions of the three personality types of the Wakefield Doctrine.

What separates the Doctrine from most other personality typing systems is that rather than trying to assign a ‘label’ or a category or a type to a person based on a list of traits or behaviors or other arbitrary qualities, the Wakefield Doctrine maintains that only by understanding the nature of the world as the other person is experiencing it can you possibly assign a type or label.

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

    Who doesn’t like cliff notes?

    Sounds like an interesting theory. Not sure how I can find out which one of clark or scott or roger I am though. But I’m sure you have already figured that out. Lol. ;-)

    well, there is that lol
    But the fun of the Doctrine is trying out the different ways of experiencing the world and see which one seems to fit the best… (Doctrine sez: while we have 1 dominant personality type, we never lose the other two, which is why sometimes you will say (correctly) ‘Why I did/how I acted just then? totally like a roger! But then other times I seem to be a scott‘ Its like that.)

    Maybe lets see what the others think/want to do/feel about this conundrum…

    I support the “process of elimination”. Ask yourself Alexandra, “what am I NOT?” Mostly. Unless you are a scott, you can easily dismiss being one of them pretty quickly. I would posit (clue to what I am) that you lean towards thinking you are a clark. Let me ask you this Alexandra….how often do you use the adjective “interesting”? If you use that adjective on a regular basis, well you might as well figure yourself to be a clark. In fact, the Doctrine says that more than likely, by virtue of the fact that you have commented here, that you are a clark. The true test however may be in how interested you are/remain, how much more you read within these pages and whether or not you submit any more questions.
    Welcome! It is always fun when someone new comes around. It’s a fact that it is somewhat easier to detemine if someone is a clark, scott or roger when they are physically present as there are physical cues as well as verbal ones to assist in figuring people out but……
    OK. If you read this entire comment, thought about it and are contemplating what I said…..then put your money on clark. Whew! That was long even for me:)

    A cursory look at your blog Alexandra, (music, movies and such) tells me there is a high probability you are a roger. Would you agree?
    Wait!….. Hey Molly M.! You being up on Doctrine stuff and closer in age to Alexandra, what do you think? She a roger?

    I’m intrigued to say the least. Added this to my favs so I can come back and dive in deeper.

      Glad to have you visit, Jose. As you can see, the Posts we do are sort of an ‘ongoing’ conversation about the Wakefield Doctrine, kind of fun. I am impressed that you went directly to the ‘Guide to the Doctrine’ page, you might be surprised at how few people do that! Let us know if you have any questions. And when you feel comfortable doing so, write us a Comment on a current Post, so we can figure out which Wakefield Doctrine hat we should send you! If that makes no sense, will be glad to give you the run down.
      Thanks again for stopping by….
