-the Wakefield Doctrine- ‘lets try that one more time!’

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

...in our backyard, fer cryin outloud

Topics for today:

  • the Wakefield Doctrine for the First Time Reader
  • for clarks (kinda more than the other two), ‘engaging the world’

First Time Reader?

Totally glad to see/infer/assume/hope that you’re here, ready to learn about the Wakefield Doctrine. I will say without hesitation or reservation that you, in your capacity as a New Reader, possessed of a certain curiosity, access to the internet and a little time, are the second most important thing to us here at this blog. From the beginning of this blog (but not the beginning of the Wakefield Doctrine) (or to be more precise, the beginning of the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) the goal and ambition has been to write ‘the Perfect Wakefield Doctrine Post. The Perfect Wakefield Doctrine Post is one that a total stranger, here for the first time (remind you of anyone?), can read and understand this personality theory well enough to apply it to their own life and see and/or appreciate the fact that everyone around them is a clark or a scott or a roger. Further, and this is where the real benefits begin to show, this First Time Reader, by employing the perspective that is the Wakefield Doctrine, becomes able to see the world as the other person is experiencing it.

…because that is what the Wakefield Doctrine is for, to better understand how our world is experienced by the people in our lives.

…different day, different perspective (on this topic):

If you’ve always had this… feeling about new ideas, call it a permanent curiosity about the odd things, in an undeniably odd world, if, when someone does something unexpected, (and annoying and/or aggravating), you always think to yourself, ‘…really thought I knew them better than that, what did I miss?!’  then you’ve come to the right place.

The Wakefield Doctrine is a way to understand the behavior of the people in our lives. Depending on your interests, the Wakefield Doctrine works as:

  • a system of personality types (clarks, scotts and rogers),
  • an anecdotal personality theory ( developing coping strategies in response to growing up as ‘the Outsider’ or ‘a Predator’ or ‘the Herd Member’ )
  • or a metaphysics/’hey what if?’/framework for questions and assumptions

… but most of all, as today’s version of this Post (started yesterday) infers,  the Wakefield Doctrine is a perspective. It is not:

  • the Answer (to why you can’t get a date, lose some weight or get a promotion)….  wait a minute! I take that back… the Doctrine can help with those life challenges
  • the Right Way to live your life (the major religions sorta have that market tied up… unless all you’re interested in is learning to understand the people in your life better each day)
  • a way to stop feeling so…  different (oops… dropped the ball on this bullet-point-contrasting-list of qualities thing…. the Wakefield Doctrine is totally a way to (begin) to stop feeling so…alone)

Lets shorten this up. There is a new Reader out there feeling like she isn’t ‘getting’ this Doctrine thing the way that the others are… ok. Hey! New Reader? If you came back here more than twice…relax! you’re getting it. Don’t compare to the others, identify with them. This Doctrine can be useful, but mostly it’s fun. (“hey! did you see what they came up with for a Post photo yesterday?? that guy is fricken nuts!”  “…and then he, like out of nowhere said the meanest thing, you think that’s what they mean by a roger?”  “…she so crazy! make sure your insurance is up to date, the mace canister is not showing an Expiration Date…and go and have fun!”)

The 3 worldviews will coalesce with time. Not to worry, you’ll get it eventually. Actually, if you want something to worry about, worry about the very real fact that once you do start seeing the clarks, scotts and rogers in your world, you may not be able to not see the clarks, scotts and rogers in your world. That’s something to be concerned about!

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

      oh shit! you’re not thinking SBoR/BoSR R:7.1. chap 6.5 (‘…when considering the efficacy of the principles of the Wakefield Doctrine, care needs to be taken to account for the worldview of the person speaking’… op. cit. ‘Everything Rule’ ) lol

      if you can’t bend the inviolable Rules of Reality in the world of virtual Reality…. what good are computers!??!**
