Tuesday -the Wakefield Doctrine- of future past tenses

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


So who the hell secretly changed the number of days of the week from ‘ok… I have just enough time’ to ‘what the hell, it’s nearly Wednesday and I haven’t even started yet!’

Blogdominion Chapter 11 is out on the newsstands.  Hey! If you’re new to our story about rogue computers, nuns with mysterious pasts and a very attractive female Detective who’s always angry and if you were to ask her about why…. yep! she’d getting really mad!  Anyway, what I started to say is, ‘Blogdominion’ begins with a Prologue, which for reasons unknown shows as Chapter 0, followed by the Chapters, so be sure to start with the Prologue. And, while you’re there, (at jukepop.com), don’t forget to ‘Vote’… yeah, I know, the world has, in fact, never stopped being a fricken popularity contest. If you think about it, the dynamics at work in our lives are not all that different from the whole, high school experience. Like swimming in a fast flowing river with muddy shores, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t!   Anyway…. go read the Story of Sister Margaret Ryan and Ed Willoughby and Tom Fearing and Orel Rees and the others and let me know how you like it! (I’m interested in your reaction to the characters. Just today I got a comment from Josie Two Shoes, regarding a character in the most recent Six Sentence Story, to the effect that she liked this corporate admin,  one Anya Claireaux, and I’m like, ‘ok I get what you like about her…’ what was cool was that, from Josie’s Comment, I could see Anya in a different light. Given that I made her up, this ‘oh really Anya? why didn’t you tell me?’  Very cool.

the Wakefield Doctrine is a unique, useful and fun way to better understand the behavior of the people in our lives. Today, if you’re like me* you’ll have a moment where you find yourself thinking, “now why in the world would they go and say/do a thing like that! I really thought I knew them better.” That is what the Wakefield Doctrine is for, that moment, that point in our daily life when we are forced to accept that, for all of being-married-to/raising-from-infants/still-got-a-shot-if-I-don’t-blow-it-now, we don’t always know the people in our lives as well as we should…or could.

All thats necessary, to drastically cut down on the number of times you’re surprised by the behavior of the people in your life, is a thorough understanding of the characteristics of the three worldviews and a willingness to ‘see the world as the other person is experiencing it’.

Pretty simple, isn’t it?

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

    I’m late so I might as well be FRIST at the Wakefield Doctrine!

  2. Denise says:

    Damn straight it’s easy! (I didn’t say simple….wait… or is it the other way ’round? lol)

    the Doctrine. Right here, right now. For free. Damn.

  3. Denise says:

    P.S. “Free” in a manner of speaking of course.

  4. Very cool. Not frist, but thrid. hahaha. Not really…anyways….
    This break from work is flying by. I wish I could press the pause button. And continual analysis of the behavior of people in my life…oh yes. And nearly Wednesday? It’s TUESDAY! And it needs to go SLOWLY. At least in my perception. If you’re working, well then it can go fast. But in my universe, I need to savor every free minute I have. :D

  5. PS – didn’t “join” the jukebox site, but cool story over there. Like a mystery thriller. That sister nun character is pretty cool. Kind of made me think about this nun I had as a principal once…she was an interesting character, too.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      yeah, I like Sister Margaret… (can’t wait to learn more about her past… ) Next time we talk, I need to hear stories! (Well, it’s not like I totally make these people up, ya know! although there really is only character deliberately modeled on a real (though, unfortunately, deceased) person and that’s Sister Bernadine whose name was not changed because we all liked her a lot and she’s making a really good Mother Superior!! lol

    GOD I GOTTA CATCH UP! I am so behind in the minion! Tonight… and wow … a year in review huh????

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      you should talk! whole new blog?!! I like it, I commented (frist, I might add) but it didn’t show, I trust it was not yet told that any comment from me would be so clearly solid gold as to make screening, laughable!

      … yet, I laugh! lol

      • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

        No. Way. !!

        very cool (in that imaginary world way that says that what is pretend is also real and what is real can be turned into pretend)

        you two have a dynamic New Years Eve and a forwardly propulsive New Year’s Day!
