Another Holiday! Can you spot the clarks, scotts and rogers?! the Wakefield Doctrine shows you how!

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)



We are beginning a weekend. In this writer’s culture it is a major Holiday, (the) Memorial Day Weekend. It is also what we refer to as a ‘gateway holiday’, it’s preliminary enticements…it’s ‘harmless buzz‘, if you will includes:

  • Indianapolis 500 car race…33 cars drive 500 miles by turning left on a 2.5 mile ovular track, while many people are watching from behind steel-reinforced wire fences
  • First Day of Summer…sort of, technically the first day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere is June 21, but given the value of knowing Summer has started… it will do
  • scotts seize the meteorological opportunity to wear as little clothing as possible
  • rogers look forward to 3 months of what amounts to ‘groups synchronized fun’, aka picnics and cookouts!
  • clarks enjoy Summer, if for no other reason than given the sheer volume of the fun, some is bound to get on them
  • …even though it is Summer, we will be catching up with our 3 Job Seekers, ‘the clarklike guy, Emily, and ‘that scottian fella’
  • we will be visiting Fort Worth, Texas in the middle of June! If you live there and need a Wakefield Doctrine Tee shirt, be sure to let us know
  • if we are on the road for business we know that a Treaty of Tordesillas Road Trip will be part of the trip

Memorial Day Weekend Contest!!  Send us your favorite activity that involves one of the other personality types and why you enjoy it! (..if you are a clark  then your fun with a scott or a roger, if you are a scott….etc)

(what? promised to show the Readers what?  damn!! that’s right we did…shit, thought I was done for the day!…hold on, hold on, they might still be listening to the music vid… music from a car commercial?!? you’re kidding, tell me you’re kidding… )

So how do you spot the three personality types in the Summer Holiday Season?

  • follow the trail of empty charcoal lighter fluid cans… the guy standing over the grill with a match yelling, “hey kids wanna see something cool?” … this is your scottian personality type.
  • the fellow with the chefs apron, barbecue utensil tool belt who is standing in the doorway of the house looking at the outdoor temperature dial saying, “well honey, for the best tasting steak, the temperature/humidity index really should be no more than…” this is your rogerian personality type
  • the person putting the food that the guests brought in bowls and serving trays saying, “no, I don’t mind…sure you can take this out to the patio, I’ll just stay here and get a start on the dishes” this is your clarklike personality type
  • the person standing at the picnic table, keeping everything covered with saran wrap, closing the tupperware lids and saying, “no, you cannot go swimming, it has only been 40 minutes” this is your rogerian personality type
  • the person sitting in the chair, watching the volleyball game who seems eager to play but every time someone leaves the game, is heard to say, ” nah…won’t don’t you get  glenn..he really is good at this” this is your clarklike personality type
  • the person taking off her clothing by the poolside who can be heard (but not seen because of the crowd around her), “I hope this bathing suit is not too revealing, I just bought it and haven’t had a chance to wear it anywhere” this is your scottian personality type

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
