the Wakefield Doctrine (personality typology; clarks, scotts and rogers)
With a basic understanding of the characteristics of each group (clarks, scotts and rogers), anyone can understand everyone else! You will know how those around you will act in virtually any situation. Finally you can understand what has never made sense to you about the people you work with, live with and/or are friends with. The answer to the question, ‘Why on earth would you do that/say that/feel that way?’
The Wakefield Doctrine is based on the premise that behavior is a response to perception (of the world). Allowing that we choose how to perceive the world means that we acquire characteristic (choices in perception) which is evidenced in characteristic behavior.
The Wakefield Doctrine proposes to describe personality on the basis of perception rather than the behavior that results (from perception).
Three distinct ways of perceiving the world are labeled: clarks, scotts and rogers. We all begin life with the potential/‘tendancy to perceive’ the world as any of these three types. At some point we become predominantly one.
There is a way of looking at people and their behavior that is based on understanding of how (that) person perceives the world at large. All of us choose to see the world a certain, characteristic way. If you know (the way) a person sees the world, you can understand and even predict their behavior.
We call this, the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers (the Wakefield Doctrine.)
Not rocket science, not even brilliant and insightful psychology. It is simply a matter of knowing that if a person sees the world a collection of similar people with similar interests, acting with a non-specific and non-directive goal, then you are dealing with a roger. If you are dealing with a roger then you immediately know certain things. And the things you know about this personality type will allow you to know how they will act.
That is what this blog is about.
clarks, scotts and rogers.
Know them, know yourself.
Know your future.
