Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)
The Wakefield Doctrine is all about how we relate ourselves to the world around us. The Wakefield Doctrine is built on the idea that everyone experiences reality, to a certain extent, as a personal affair and we call these affairs, worldviews. The Wakefield Doctrine is predicated on the notion that there are three characteristically distinct (and distinguishable) worldviews, and if you ask someone who understands the Wakefield Doctrine what these three worldviews are all about, they will tell you: it is about being the Outsider, knowing that you can never assume to ‘be a part of’; and they will tell you that one of the three worldviews is the reality of the Predator who lives in and of action, (a person) for whom the world is the ‘here and now’; finally she will tell you that some people grow up secure in the knowledge that the world is quantifiable, that there exists Rules and (a) Right Way of living. The Wakefield Doctrine is about seeing the world as the other person is experiencing it, knowing and accepting that when the other person, your husband/your sister/your pupil/your customer/your date/your enemy/your Doctor/the-person-stealing-the-parking-place-you-were- trying-for-and-would-already-be-in-if-you-had-not-been-so-damned-polite/the surly kid at the hardware store/the girl at the checkout counter who smiles as you realize that she doesn’t even register your existence/the new boss, so anxious to impress his boss/the girl you were afraid to ask out but decided to try-having-a-normal-life-just-one-more-time/the parent in the hospital bed that they will never leave/the child that you take to the bus top the very first time, full of hope and fear/the husband who says that he would never do anything to hurt you but….
So, you think this Wakefield Doctrine might be useful to you? in your life? We bet it can! if… your wife seems to ignore the things that matter the most to you, if you get mad when people just fuckin stand there and talk about what they are going to do instead of just doing it, if you want to hide but are afraid of being left behind in life, if you know that there is more to the friends that you thought you had, even though they don’t seem to bother calling you anymore more, if you want to stop the bad habits, if you keep thinking that there has to be a way to figure it all out, if you are tired of seeing others lead happy normal lives and you know that they are not that different, if you think that you could use an edge, if you feel that knowing more about the people in your life would make it richer and more fulfilling, if you just want to be sure…
yeah there is something in the principles of the Wakefield Doctrine that might help.

Like we say, ‘if you learn and use the Wakefield Doctrine as a tool for understanding people, you need never find yourself saying, “I really thought I knew him better than that! How could they say such thing, what would make her do something so thoughtless!” ‘
