the Wakefield Doctrine (a clark, a scott and a roger are stranded on a desert island…)
Good news and bad news.
The good news is that we are starting to get feedback from people heretofore totally unfamiliar with the Wakefield Doctrine (aka the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers);
The bad news, they say that they are having trouble understanding the Doctrine after their visit to this blog.
Which reminds me of a joke…
Actually, it makes as much sense as anything else to turn our attention to humor and what the Wakefield Doctrine can tell us about those we find funny and maybe even those we do not (find funny.)
You are probably saying at this point, ‘What the hell does this have to do with comprehending the Wakefield Doctrine’? (Or words to that effect. scott: hurry the f*ck up, get back to the comedians, roger:go ahead tell me more so that I can relate my own experiences or clark: alright, you have my attention.)
(Give me a minute, I had the rationale here when I started this Post…)
The basis for the Doctrine is that the manner in which a person relates to the world determines their personality. Further, this ‘manner or style’ is a function of how the person chooses perceive the world. (You have all heard the expression, ‘reality is perception’.)
Every one of us interpret our relationship to the world at large in a characteristic way; the terms used in the Wakefield Doctrine are, of course: as a clark (would), as a scott (would) as a roger (would). These links will take you to a page devoted to one of the three forms.
Or if you just want an Overview of what we are talking about, then go to the ‘By these names you will know them’ page. If you are a scott or a roger and are feeling particularly brave try the ‘So, which am I?‘ (Warning! not for the insecure scott or roger).
Got to go look at some more clips, what a time in history we live!
