Welcome to ( ah! much better! ) the Wakefield Doctrine ( the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers )
As the title purely implies, today is an easy day…easy font, easy title and easy on the complex, OMG! I had no idea how totally insightful you people are…kinda way. No grammar concerns, no worries about ‘story arc’ just going to have a little conversation. Well, we know it is not going to be a ‘conversation’, because that would require a give and take, an exchange of ideas, a frickin effort to get out of your Chair-of-Total-Self-Idulgence and and actually do something. ( And we know you are too fuckin lazy to bother doing that! Life in the Virtual Zone!! ain’t it grand?)
Lets play with fonts, seeing how we’re all ‘comic sans-ly this morning’. Like the following short statement:
This is type on wing dings font what the hell!
now, would someone out there please tell me why this ‘font’ would be permanently installed in my software? Seriously, other than some pudgy-fingered, greasy-hair, bad-complected roger (male or female) using this font to send secret messages to other rogers, why do we have it? No answer, is there? (And we now arrive at the Wakefield Doctrine Lesson of the Day):
We all know that this Doctrine is based on the premise that there are three characteristic ways/manners/styles that all people perceive the world, i.e. ’as an Outsider’ (looking on) if you are a clark, ‘as a predator’ (watching out) if you are a scott (or) ‘as a member of the group (looking around) if you are a roger.
With me so far? good! Then you know that at an early age, we all become predominantly one of these three, (and this is where the magic happens):
- If you are a clark: you are different, you know that everyone and everything around seems normal and you know you are not crazy (well, not crazy crazy) but everything is out there and you are here watching and hoping that you can understand what it is that everyone else seems to know (and then) you will fit in and you won’t be out here
- If you are a scott: you just got to do something, you see people act and move and you feel….you move you suspect that you are different but everytime someone does something you re-act and you are …not glad…not happy…it’s just right. Sometimes you feel like you maybe, shouldn’t do so much so fast, you feel bad when others seem to not enjoy it…but you know thats the way the world is
- If you are a roger: you are busy, all the time, things need to get done but they must be understood and appreciated and …and enhanced You feel the responsibility, the sense of duty but it is not oppressive, sometimes you know that there are people around you who are in the way, but for the most part, everyone has a place and life will unfold as it should
What we are talking about here is not the dominant aspect, the fact that we are mostly clarks, scotts and rogers (most of the time), what we will look at is the role of the two ‘non-dominant’ aspects. Remember! We never lose the capacity/capability/drive/instinct to experience the world as any of the three types, so what happens to the other two that we are not (mostly)?
That question formed the core of the constructive part of last night’s Saturday Night Drive.
You know, the live call-in blog that you couldn’t drag yourself away from the totally engaging TV show that demanded your attention, or those loser friends on ‘the Facebook’ that you so hadn’t talked to in so long, in order to call us and thereby slightly increasing the chance of (your) living a better life? Anyway AKH, DS#1 and DownSpring glenn were in the car (in one form or another) and the result of the discussion was this: anyone understanding/getting/reading and/or following the Wakefield Doctrine blog has their clarklike aspect in 2nd position. No matter what. Why this is true came about later in the conversation. And since one of the key bits of wisdom that the Doctrine has given us maintains that for most people ‘if it is free, it is worthless’. So that we might demonstrate the benefits of the Doctrine in action, ” you want to know more about the role of the sub-dominant aspects of personality?”
That will be $23.57…bitches
