the Wakefield Doctrine (‘Britney Spears’, ‘Obama’,’foreclosures’,’viagra’, ‘teenage vampires’; take that, search engine motherf*ckers!)
Alright, lots to of ground to cover, early morning and not a lot of time to write. Real good news though, I just learned to single space! As in: ‘damn I should be putting this sentence on its…
own Line!! May not seem like a big deal, but you try writing when all you can do is paragraphs.
The current ‘tempest in a teapot’ or ‘Excitabat enim fluctus in simpulo’1 (for you clarks out there) here at the Doctrine is all about Presentation or how do we come up with an approach that will reliably hook-in you, the New Visitor/Reader? Not an unimportant question. In fact, the (correct) answer to this question is the difference between all this effort being either ‘oh yeah, those guys had this blog thing for a while last year’ and ‘she was one of those Wakefield Doctrine writers, man what a roger‘!
The ‘visitor count’ is running only about 15 a day on average, but until we complete Remedial Writing 101, I suspect we should be grateful that it is low. I would hate like hell to waste a perfectly good ‘reader visit’ because this damn thing is written like we were on drugs or were scottian. The Wakefield Doctrine (aka theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) is, in all seriousness an original and interesting ‘thing.
Not on par with ‘Das Kapital’ or ‘The Golden Bough’ or even Sheldon’s ‘Constitutional Psychology’, the Wakefield Doctrine is a way to change how you look at the behavior of the people around you. The Wakefield Doctrine supplies a perspective on the reasons that people act the way that they do and more to the point, the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers offers an explanation for the behavior of the people we (all) have to deal with at home, at work, at school.
Most importantly, the Wakefield Doctrine provides insight into the minds of those around us. We have all heard the expression ‘you should walk a mile in his moccasins before you judge him (or words to that effect). The idea is that if we can see the world as another person sees it, then their behavior and actions and attitudes becomes understandable. (and predictable2)
Since this is the Doctrine and the Doctrine sez there are only 3 personality types I will address each of the three, the clarks, the scotts and the rogers. (In no particular order, you will know which statement is for you.)
The following statements are true:
This is the Wakefield Doctrine. It has something of value that no other blog can offer. The Wakefield Doctrine is fun, it is educational and it is a way to get the upper hand on your enemies.
This is the Wakefield Doctrine. It is not for everyone. It may sound familiar, in parts, to what you already know but it is now a product of more than one viewpoint so it has an advantage that your system does not have, and that is acceptance by others.
This is the Wakefield Doctrine. Read it. Laugh. Pretend you made it up yourself.
The pages that follow should ‘fill in the blanks’. Have fun, leave Comments/Replies, buy a hat.
