the Wakefield Doctrine (it’s AP/AS/SH at the Doctrine… bring your yellow pads and No 2 pencils… and your questions!)

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.

Today at 3:30 EDT  if you call this number  218-339-0422  and do what the nice woman sez including entering this code: 512103 followed by the # sign   … you just might find some people happy to tell you what they know and are happy to hear what you know  about this understanding people stuff.

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!”

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


  1. Have a wonderful call-in show again today. I will totally be there in spirit, but 3:30 on Thursday with two kids is truly asking for a nuclear meltdown to occur if I get on the phone, lol!!

  2. Kerri says:

    I hope your call-in goes well

    Awesome study hall this afternoon. I always learn something new and you’re right: I can now write a post about reacting to negative comments. HAHAHA!
    Sorry to take up some of the time talking about my dog – but since the Doctrine likes dogs, I figured you wouldn’t mind too much. :)

      dogs are perfect lifeforms

      and yes, the Doctrine thinks highly of dogs…and other pack animals (lol) it was fun and I learned something from today, so thank you! And don’t forget your assignment! explore the scottian worldview as much as possible…and (you know what we say) ‘take notes’!

      oh yeah!! glad you Commented… please make a note of your little adventure with the scottian female. I will not try and re-tell it here, as it is your story (and you may want to do some disguisification of the innocent) lol But this is not just a good story but as with most of the things about the Doctrine the real life event you related shows the underlying principles of the Doctrine being born out and validated! Mostly because while it is a common and familiar ‘interaction’ i.e. a scott being aggressive and challenging those around them…the particular circumstances illustrate the truly significant aspects…. a) dominating the group by doing something out of the ordinary b) relating themselves to the individuals of the group on a one-one basis and c) clearly thriving on the interaction … very scottian.

      Thank you for bring us that artifact from the scottian realm! We want more! go get all Laura Croft and find us the lost City of the scotts or the scottian graveyard or anything else that will increase our understanding of the reality that produces such an attractive and annoying, enthusiastic and aggravating personality types as our scotts!

    I missed the call in show…but I hope it went well! Is there a way to listen to it at a later time to catch up? I’ve been so busy with the kids lately that I seem to have an awful lot of catching up to do in general!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      That is a good idea…taping for replay. I will look into it. I think maybe even if we tape the second half, that would be useful, good idea.

  5. Heya Clark…have a good show today too…I love how you are getting the Doctrine going. Glad that the doctrine also thinks highly of dogs!! Now would they be Rogers, Scotts or Clarks? Looking for ward to your take on that one.

      Thank you. Thats a point we were talking about, I suspect the matter of dogs exhibiting traits of clark or a scott or a roger, while fun, will be limited to those of us who really like (and know) dogs, in order to infer the characteristics of the three. In general canines are associated with the scottian personality type, i.e. simple, direct, focused on the now, enthusiastic, not-inclined to hold a grudge etc. (Often differences as to clark scott or roger can be seen, by some of us, among the dogs that we have had the privilege to have in our lives.
