TToT the Wakefield Doctrine “…how did he do that??! comic sans title!??! my hero!!”

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




1) to celebrate the ego this weekend, I will make each of the following items something that: a) I try to bring from my rogerian aspect and 2) makes me (the predominant clark) totally cringe

2) I had a great week! And this, despite all the resistance I met, between clients not listening, the lawn mower blade refusing to cut the grass…just so and the girl at Dunkin Donuts who spilled some coffee down the side of my coffee cup, making it sticky to the touch, so much so that I had to get a damp paper towel when I returned to the office, where I had several great deals to finish the paperwork on!

3) pretty impressive work with the Title of today’s Post, isn’t it? (it was nothing, all you had to do was think about it and in all modesty, it was obvious, at least to me,  how to do it, but then , that’s just how I approach things)

4) I want to thank everyone for their great responses and out-pouring of support for my campaign to attract more rogerian Readers! I know it sounds like an impossible task, but I feel I kind of owe to all the followers and readers who look forward to the Posts that I write here at the Wakefield Doctrine.

5) I want to thank one of my biggest fans, she had a really great compliment and I was, to be quite honest, pleasantly surprised when she wrote, “I think the Wakefield Doctrine posts are really outstanding and I find something in each one that I read that helps me every day. How you manage to have such insights is beyond me, but I am grateful that you do!”   …well, I’m not making any promises, but I’ll see what I can do!

6) I’m glad that I have such a wonderful and satisfying job and home! You know, and this will probably come as a surprise to you, sometimes when I think about how nice my home is and how, with all the support I get from everyone here at the house, I get a little emotional, at the idea of how many people in the world would give anything to have as good a life as I have made for myself here.

7) I want to thank my assistant hosts for all their help in putting together this bloghop, I can’t imagine how much more difficult it would be if I didn’t have them all helping and pitching in wherever they can. What a great bunch of gals!

8) Looks like I’m almost out of space! You know, considerering* how well things are going, maybe we should have a Twenty Things or Thirty Things each week!

9)   images-84  

10) below there is, what is becoming, our traditional Friday evening walk with Una….at least until the days get too short to go for a walk in the evening.


* ‘considering’ you know… that would make a great title for a Post! Maybe I should… nah!  too many people are depending on my producing the Posts here at the Doctrine, not that I couldn’t, but I don’t think it’s really necessary

** unless, you know, you didn’t find anything wrong with it, in which case we need to talk

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. Yo!!! Well, not an impossible task, you’ve a Rogerian reader here!

    • Forgot to add…FRIST!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      and I am grateful for that, you (and Kristi) are such value to the efforts we are trying to make here at the Doctrine. While I exaggerate and poke fun, rogers are a part of the total person…sometimes too much (a part) sometimes too little a part, but there are three worldviews, not 1 or 2

  2. What gorgeous territory you covered in your nightly walk. Love the stone fences. Getting that cow to moo on cue was amazing!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      lol yeah, got lucky with the vocalizations, you don’t suppose there’s something like, cow treats that I can buy and throw out the window of the cow so Una can have more fun with them, do you?

  3. valj2750 says:

    Tell me again how you drive the car and pan the camera at the same time. Is it on your head?

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      no, no! that would look silly! it’s really a fairly compact camera (if you go back to last week’s video and watch in the rear view mirror you can the camera in my right hand…just before we went on remote!) so, I have a left hand and two perfectly good knees free for the purposes of steering and such!

  4. There’s nothing better than a satisfying job and home, and if possible a sweet-smelling baby to cuddle with all day… Sorry, still totally in mommy-mood here, what happened to tough-me? Probably forgot her when leaving the birthing suit with a tiny little girl about 6.5 years ago.. Have a great weekend, Clark!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      thanks S.

      congrats again on the new family member/brand-new-source-of-post-topics!

  5. zoe says:

    I would love to write something acknowledging your lovely (ahem) Rogerian presentation but you’re roger is too much of an a-hole (lol?)…just sign me one of the gals….ha!

  6. dyannedillon says:

    Dunkin Doughnuts? I love doughnuts….

  7. christine says:

    I’m thinking you were quite successful at trying to bring out your inner roger. This post didn’t sound like you at all!
    You are not just a WD genius, but a computer wiz to boot. How did you do that font? :)
    And lastly, for the love of all that is holy, how hard is it to put a seatbelt on?!?!?! I’ve come to like you, Clark, and I only want you to be safe.
    That Una is adorable. Clearly, she loves her walks.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      thank you. (I mean, we all know that ‘the other two’ are inherently a part of us) and (we also know) that thinking or talking or acting like them isn’t really the same thing, but it is another perspective… and that’s what the Doctrine really tries to do (and does pretty well) is get us to see (and maybe even experience) the world as the other person does.

      yeah… she does her job perfectly!

  8. Sarah says:

    That was the funniest thing I’ve read on the TToT this week.

  9. Kristi says:

    I imagine you will be able to round up some more rogers, but in the meantime, maybe you can just write from your rogerian side when it’s time for another Thursday roger post. (Or maybe Una can guest post–what is her world view?)

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      well, I hope to be successful in my efforts, your people’s (rogers) are the most fun of the three to read… it’s that natural story-telling gene, I guess

  10. lrconsiderer says:

    That said, nauseatingly well done, roger…

  11. hi! I missed you guys! happy to be back! Una rocks it


  12. You often express gratitude for you job and I think that’s so great. Too many people are unhappy with their work or are dissatisfied with some circumstance around it. But really, to enjoy what you do with your days and enjoy the home you have – blessings, indeed!
    Love the scenery in your walk with Una – the stone fences somehow remind me of Robert Frost’s “The Mending Wall.”

  13. Sarah says:

    I know the disdain is there, and that it is partially directed at me, but I had to come read this one again. I just keep picturing you as a teenage girl writing this…oh, lord.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      then we have a deal?

      (Readers and DownSprings? a little help here. As you know I appreciate participation in all manner and forms, this is after all, a blog about a personality theory that allows for 3 distinct, separate (somewhat) and yet, equal in value and viability among themselves. so I am suggesting a modification of the ‘Designation Rule’ to the extent that I would ask to be permitted to ask a person to GPW on GPTGP without (that person) having to be certain of their own predominant worldview. After all and as Guest Writers and Readers know, the fun of Thursday is that there are no rules or requirements, standards or topics, guidelines or thesiseses… (as Readers we have enjoyed the Posts as they represent one of the three worldview on each Thursday.)

      Do I have any feedback, dissent, advice, support, what-the-hell-are-you-thinking-can’t-you-see-what’s-going-on-here, insights, theories, sure-of-course-I-can-I-write-the-frickin-Doctrine-blog,

      • zoebyrd says:

        ooooo its like a potluck thursday! Actually I think it would be pretty interesting to find out anyones thinking behind how they drew the conclusion of their personality type especially those who are undecided … as an oft-time skeptic of said theories nuances I think much could be discovered from such a post…and maybe even wipe that little smirk off all those hoitty toitty clarks and scotts… (said by the woman with a secondary roger).

        …and to my friend sarah, I too have made the too intimate connection with something I disliked here and my own situation. I think I actually went up one side and down the other of our esteemed host for which I now apologize ( I think I did in the past as well) because I later realized after licking my wounds that it is so easy to see oneself in any of the three types and sometimes those aspects of said types suck… so while I cant speak for Clark , I can vouch for him (and that’s just my roger needing to do that…) BUt I do like the idea of seeing him as a teenage girl… it kinda takes the sting out and puts a whole new kinda sting in! lol!

        • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

          (“..oh no she dih-int!”)

          lol your wisdom once again, allows me to shift my perspective.

          Hey. Sarah…. I need you to be a Guest Post Writer (GPW) for the GPTGP on Thursday September 4th 2014. Say yes, and I will follow up by email for instructions. The last few months have Thursdays with Guest Post Writers (GPW) of all three worldviews. I say, without fear of contradiction, that if you were to ask any of them if they were glad they joined in and participated, they would say ‘yes, yes I am glad that I participated’

    It is nice to read when someone is genuinely happy with their home and family. So many people want the next biggest house or new people to hang out with. I am in agreement with you on thanking the hosts for this hop. Thank you!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      it is a(n) interesting thing to do for money and Phyllis and Una certainly have their good qualities. Phyllis being a roger has added a certain quality of stability/permanence to the idea of houses and homes.
      they are all 10s!


  1. […] you haven’t read Clark’s post from yesterday, go and do it and understand why I am grateful he is not a roger. I like you the way you are,Clark. […]
