Tuesday -the Wakefield Doctrine- ‘the day (of the workweek) of maximum, unsubstantiated optimism, (!!! go!! clarks!)

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

no, seriously!  Today’s subtitle is not nearly as cynical, sardonic or sarcastic as it may sound on first read. It’s a statement of fact for clarks, a funny thing for scotts and flashing of emotional content for rogers. But, as they say in one of the top three funniest movies of all time, ‘but that’s not important right now’*

What is important is that I continue to provide insights, suggestions, advice and information to help anyone interested in better understanding the people in their lives, to appreciate what the Wakefield Doctrine has to offer.

The Wakefield Doctrine offers:

  • an additional perspective on the world around us, which can be a good thing, provided you’re a person who believes that there is more than one way to see the world
  • speaking of ‘more than one way to see the world’, isn’t the verb in that very common observation begging for a closer look?   damn straight it does!
  • we’ll get to that as soon as I complete this here bullet list here; according to the Doctrine, we have three ‘ways’ (there it is again!!) to experience the world: as an Outsider(clark), Predator(scott) and a Herd Member(roger) and by ‘experience‘ we mean ‘personal reality’ and by ‘personal reality’ we mean, the world actually is quantifiable (provided you’re a roger), full of prey and larger predators (if you’re a scott) and distant and apart from, a country for which you lost your citizenship (if you woke up this morning, a clark)

ok! any questions, write a comment.

that business about ‘more than one way to see the world’?  online dictionary:

way (noun)
1) a method, style, or manner of doing something
2) a road, track, path, or street for traveling along

how convenient is that?!  three examples of noun (and) adverbial form(s) of the word!  I’ll leave you, the Reader, to decide which (definition) corresponds to which worldview, (because you know that they will!)

On to other Tuesday Business.

Hey!  Friend of the Doctrine zoe is working on this very excellent site, (the) ‘Carrot‘ and, I believe she has something going on Monday’s (or will have going on, on Mondays), so what say you jump over there…. click here  and check it out.  If you do, I’ll tell you about the latest in ‘Blogdominion’ and, maybe even tell you about the upcoming Chapter 20!!  ‘gwan with ye now!’

Blogdominion  Chapter 19.  yeah, it does end with a bit of an old-school cliff hanger! what can I say? Sister Margaret! that young lady has a way of finding the road-less-traveled, whether she likes it or not!  So… Chapter 20? I believe we’re all in for some surprises. No, really! I’m including myself in that promise! (For those just joining us, I’ll say, GO READ the Story!  start with the Prologue and then up to Chapter 19. Seriously, it’s a fun adventure but, like most fun stories, it’s as much about the people in it as it is about what happens. My approach to writing Blogdominion is, what I believe, they refer to as, ‘seat of the pants’ style (of writing). Want to know how serious I am about this approach I am?  I don’t know, as of this writing (7:24 am Tuesday the 23rd), how Chapter 20 ends!

So, go! read the story and join us on the adventure!

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. I thought the verb you were going to parse was “see” until I read further. Does that make me an outsider?

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      (while keeping in mind that we all have the potential of all three within, the Doctrine is predicated on only one worldview being predominant, i.e. being one’s personal reality. Often, in the beginning people see what they feel is their predominant only to see what is clearly one of the other two pop up (usually in certain, specific situations)… those are referred to as secondary aspects. there is always one predominant worldview, the description of the character of reality that makes the most amount of sense, most of the time. So for Outsider(clarks) there is a certain view of the world that is lead pipe obvious (to a clark) but makes nothing but silly sense to a roger or a scott, ‘in the morning, it’s always a question of how best to deal with the world out there’…. this ‘relationship is peculiar to clarks (Outsiders), I exist and the world exists, mutually but not always….
      …another way to describe what the Doctrine tries to do is: ‘understand how a person relates themselves to the world around them’ …and I always follow this with the statement that I’m saying ‘relates themselves to the world’ and not ‘how a person relates to the world around them’…. big difference

    That Sister Margaret is a force to be reckoned with. Ya gonna turn that into a real-in-print book? Cuz I’d like to read, but need the print version. Catching up with all the chapters in the online version would be hard for my eyes. LOL.
    Did you say different worldviews? Ah yes, who among my friends does not know about the Doctrine? LOL
    And Tuesdays? NOT my favorite day of the week. I think I like Thursdays, actually. No wait…Fridays. The thought of an entire weekend to live in my own little world…say…I’m taking this Friday off. :D Going to go on a bike ride. Oh yeah. Then write bunches of blog posts cuz that’s my favorite thing to do, too. :)

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      Yes. I will be doing the full real-in-print book thing as soon as I find out how this story ends. no, I’m serial! I don’t know how the book will end, going the total ‘seat of the pants’ route.

      hey! would you consider being a ‘beta reader’? when the book is complete and I print it all out? (I’ll mail it to you even!) I think I have an idea how the book writing thing goes: write the book, send to beta Readers… edit… find an editor…. send it to them…. find an agent…who finds a publisher… yes? I’m probably 5 or so Chapters from the end of this one. (yeah, other Sister Margaret books, fer sure)…. so I guess I better start thinking about the how…

      I like Tuesdays on an institutional basis, I enjoy Thursday on a historical basis (from college days)…. Fridays and Saturdays… not as big as you would think, though Sunday evenings actually are big for me.
