lets take a little Survey! -the Wakefield Doctrine- (year-end kind of thing, you know, everyone loves a fun survey!)

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


(no, I will not be making a predictable joke about the endless stream of survey postings on ‘the Facebook’ ( “hey! I got child molester! what kind of repressed urges type are you?” … “I’m a Type 2 recovering glue chuffer, it’s fun and makes me feel a part of the crowd!”  … “I got purple!….no, wait! that was puerile!  what color is that?”)

Three parts to our Post today. Well, 4 parts, if you actually participate.

First: the Wakefield Doctrine personality type (aka predominant worldview) Assessment. After you’ve taken the test, come back and Answer our quick and easy Survey Questions! (Comments are optional. Of course, we already know what you will say in your Comments, once we see how you scored.)

The Assessment.  (…no, you have to click on it!  here!  what, no, don’t go back…ready?  (no, you don’t need a No.2 pencil)… all you have to…. if you have to, we’ll wait…. are you back yet? ok… no! you can’t be done already, you haven’t gotten to the link.  Sure, you are well-behaved. Everyone ready now?  what!?!!?  no, there is no study guide…. yes, this is an open book.  now, take you cursor and):   CLICK HERE

….times up!

Now the fun part!

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

    The “other” choice didn’t give me enough room, so here’s my comment:

    I’m pretty sure I’m primarily roger, with a strong secondary clark (and I think it’s safe to say that no one would argue that.) Today, though, with this quiz, the clark comes out ahead, followed by roger. The scott in me (I guess there is one after all!) shows up when children need help.

    I’m “thinking aloud” here, but I think that rogers have trouble with “there are no right or wrong answers” because obviously there are! :-) OK, I’m not sure this will make sense, but choosing between “a” and “c” is difficult because often, “a” struggles with knowing what is right and wrong, and “c” knows all too well and acts like a jerk. Acting like a jerk is wrong (and feels wrong, too), so “a” is the better answer. And that is how a roger with a strong secondary clark can end up scoring as a clark with a secondary roger. I think. Or I feel. Whatever is the right answer. :-)

      Yes (to your predominant rogerian and secondary clarklike aspect). It is to our benefit, in that the number of rogers who are… not too rogerian (lol) is very small. You and Phyllis and Michelle at present, but it is very enlightening to see, not only how you approach participation (in a thing like this), but it tells us more about the rogerian worldview (which, as we’ve commented before, we know the personal reality of the rogers (and the scotts) enough to describe it but, like traveling to Spain, we would only know the famous places, and we totally would not be confused with being a native*)

      * and one of the goals of this thing of ours is to know ‘the other two’ worldviews well enough to at least speak fluently (when we encounter a person from a different worldview). Like with any other language gaps, misunderstandings will be reduced!

  2. I love it that we have a fellow roger in Kristi! :)
    And…I’m the one who put the idiot “furtive” response. Because that is *so* clark. I have to be different. Even if others are in my corner and we all think alike. I have to make a different-shaped corner, by golly. With some perfectly steamed loose leaf tea.
    **I don’t even know if I make sense.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      yeah, we are fortunate in the rogers we have around here…. of course you ‘have to be different’ …you are different!*

      * at least to the world of scotts and rogers, among us clarks….well, you’re still kinda different, but, of course, we enjoy that in ourselves and our otherselfs

  3. zoebyrd says:

    So my OTHER comment is reminicent of when I took the assessment originally and you asked…” Why would you bother continuing when all the answers were clearly the same?”

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      the stupid poll thing is hiding the free form answers! what the hell! (thank you for that comment, it was quite the revelation when the first rogers took the assessment (not sure who…might even have been Joe) and they all come up with the same score…. now, of course, Kristi did not, so that is telling us about rogers (with secondary scottian or no secondary aspects)…. they just messin with us lol

    What’s a carry-over view? I voted for it anyway :p

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      oh those! lol (I should be embarrassed to even say this…. (don’t tell anyone) but ‘carry over views’ are what frequently happen on Mondays… the big viewership from the TToT carries into Monday morning… I guess I’m being a bit of a … something (“Hey!! keep reading!! it’s sort of like the blgohop!! well, maybe it’s just weird without the higher maturity level inherent in a gratitude Post)

      • lrconsiderer says:

        Do they read your new stuff or just happen to visit your TToT post on a Monday? That happens to me, and it’s always the TToT post which gets looked at, not anything else.

        • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

          both… I get Comments from the TToT and I also, like today get reads on the current Post.

  5. Yup. I’m still a clark:)

  6. Lisa @ The Meaning of Me says:

    Thought from the start that I was likely a Clark, then got semi-convinced it was Roger (although I didn’t really believe it). Then I went back to the Clark because that is what I know to be true.
    Now, I can never resist a poll or a survey or a quiz or whatever, so I was all over this (albeit a bit late to the game) and sure enough, a clear win for Clark with a pretty close Roger in second. I knew always that the Scott was never me – barely even hits the radar.
    I loved this Clark, really.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      (Even though it is fundamental that all people have the potential of all three and that there can only be one predominant worldview* and that there can be** significant secondary and tertiary aspects), we are becoming increasingly aware of the potential that a significant secondary aspect can have to make it confusing (at first glance) which is the predominant and which is not.

      We’re always glad to find another clark out there… (there’s a secret club of clarks…. very…..clarklike about though)

      * seeing how, the Doctrine is dealing in realities…real realities. (I act as I do, not because of choice and predilection but because this is how I developed my coping strategies growing up as an Outsider, in the reality of the Outsider
      ** of course, we know that there is not a requirement that a person have secondary or tertiary aspects, at least not to any significant degree (the potential remains…well, potential) some people do not have a secondary or tertiary aspect their only scottian or clarklike or rogerian….easy enough to spot, though

      • Lisa @ The Meaning of Me says:

        I can definitely see that my Roger is a strong secondary – it kicks into gear under certain circumstances, but always kind of lies there beneath. It’s the “rule” thing – in certain circumstances, rules are great and I think everyone should definitely follow them, especially if they are ones I adhere to, of course! But that life from the outside thing? Yeah, there’s no denying that.
        I also love spotting other people’s worldview at work. I have a friend, for example, who is so Scott it’s a bit scary. It explains a LOT about that person’s behavior.

        • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


          did you we issue the semi-manditory warning? no? damn! Warning: once you are versed enough in the Wakefield Doctrine (and the characteristics of the three worldviews) you will see the clarks, scotts and rogers in your life with increasing facility. (no, that’s not the warning part) You may find it impossible to not see the clarks, scotts and rogers in your life after this point (that’s the warning part).

          hold that thought about the role of the secondary aspect… it is an area of the Doctrine where we are constantly developing our understanding, so expect to see it explored in Posts in the coming months… so as you observe the personality types (Scotts for example…. don’t run away in front of them, don’t take them too seriously (at least at first), they can be fun, and loud)…remember what we always say, ‘take notes! we want to hear about what you see out there!’

    As far as surveys go, this was better than buzzfeed.

      What a nice thing to say! ( “I got clark!! with a secondary scottian aspect!! Yipee!??!!”)
