Tuesday Morning: how the 3 personality types of the Wakefield Doctrine respond to this ‘mildest of Weekdays’

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine ( three characteristic worldviews determine the 3 personality types: clarks, scotts and rogers )

Almost too easy. But we must be considerate of the New Reader! No telling how many people have arrived here at the Wakefield Doctrine this very Tuesday morning, driven by an insatiable curiosity, a little free-time at their computer at work/school or simply an annoying friend/co-worker (“...yeah, no! just go there! don’t try to read the About page, just read this Post! it’s about these people and these worldview things and…the thing of it is they are so right and I can’t stop seeing these scotts and clark and rogers…rogers!! do you have any idea how disturbing it is now whenever I drive past a bunch of guys riding bikes, wearing the kind of spandex that made Pat Benatar such a star… and  just go there and let me know when you understand how any of this is going to be useful!“)

We all know that Tuesday is the day of the week that is most clarklike, right? The clue was right there in the Title, right? And by the associating of the word ‘mild’, you know have a spot-on assessment of the clarklike personality type, right?


Well, right about the ‘Tuesday is the most clark-friendly Day of the Week’, but t-wrong about the assessment of the clarklike personality type as being ‘mild’. Moderate?, fair… temperate?, sure, why not? even-tempered?, now you are straying… easy-to-get-along-with? getting colder… flat-affect, overly rational? ok…warmer… driven by a disconnected emotional aspect to find the way back home… yow! boiling !

Tuesday is the easiest-going Day of the Week. Rivalled only by Thursday on the lowered expectations scale, Tuesday is the day where you can believe in the promises of the work/school, even commit yourself to giving all to making the week a time of great accomplishment. Without the threat of an Exam (Friday) or even a pop quiz (Wednesday), Tuesday is the day where:

  • clarks relax
  • scotts wake up
  • rogers begin to get annoyed

If you were looking through the eyes of a clark…on a Tuesday morning…and the newspaper headlines read: ‘Meteor to Strike Earth on Friday, Extinction of all Life Certain!’ your reaction would be:

  • relief because the mess you made of your first serious relationship would finally stop bothering you (…hopefully)
  • excitement because now you don’t have to worry about having enough money to pay the mortgage
  • amused because you had a dream in which you felt loved and cherished by all and when you woke up you had a genuine emotional conviction that you were ‘a part of the family’
  • a sense of vindication because you knew that nothing really mattered
  • regret as you finally realized that people did not really care about how strange the inside of your head is, they only wanted to believe that you liked and appreciated them
Well, that was …interesting!
If the rogers and the scotts would form an orderly line (yeah, right) we will register each and every one of your objections to this Post.

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

    EEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW! (I was already asking the question “wtf is up with that picture” when I clicked on the caption.)
    And there ya go! clark on clark….I was asking the question with the answer already in place. The pic is disturbing. Why? (oh, no. is someone going to say, “gee DS1, what does that say about you?”)
    Alas, the workings of the clarklike mind.
    It’s simple: there are times when images just strike a chord in us. A dissonant tone, sometimes …perhaps. lol These images strike us in a “practicably non-cognitive” way. Nope. There’s some other plane we wander at times that remains un-named.

    Examples of a clarklike mind thought: Last Saturday Night’s Drive Call-in Show. Still suffering from the effects of food poisoning, I joined in a conversation between Clark and Molly. Based on the tenor of the conversation, I suddenly had this image of Molly, (whom I have not met face to face, but who I know in a way better befitting people who have known each other for many years and I suspect she me, in a way that a person unfamiliar with the Doctrine would have trouble believing), walking into her local Post Office (or perhaps the general store), looking at the clerk behind the counter and screaming “wtf you……!!”.
    You know, a little rampagette. LOL The image in my head struck me as funny because of the simple contrast. That is a thing that would be outrageous, a thing she would ever do. An occurance that, anyone who knows her, simply could not picture. But! …in the mind of a clark…..things we find funny are often the things that have other folks scratching their heads.

    Huh. Thanks for this podium. Have a draft post over at Girlie that I feel needs a bit more clarification on some points having to do with this Doctrine thing. I realize that while I can “rest easy” when I talk to other clarks (because they “get what I’m saying without me having to spell it out…) there are still scotts and rogers reading that are reading the same word from a completely other vantage point. Their reading glasses are different than mine.

    ‘sall I have right now.
