3 personality types, Wakefield Doctrine redux
Hey, glad you could stop by!
You probably do not know it, but this is the first place the Wakefield Doctrine ( the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers ) appeared, blogistically-speaking. Nearly 3 damn years ago, we started writing Posts in the effort to let people everywhere know about the Wakefield Doctrine. (Been pretty darn successful too!)
Quick backstory: the Wakefield Doctrine is a personality theory that is based on the idea that all people experience the world in one of three distinct and characteristic ways, as a clark or a scott or a roger. Unlike most personality schema, the Doctrine does not ask about what you think your likes and dis-likes are, we are not trying to catalog your behaviors and could care less about what you think your dominant traits are. We simply say, ‘as a clark you experience life this way…as a scott, the world you walk out into today will look like this…if you are a roger, then you will live in a world that is this way and so on).
Furthermore, the Wakefield Doctrine holds that we are all born with the potential to see the world in any of these three ways, but for some reason, by the age of 3 or 4 we all settle on one (of the three) and that is the reality we grow up in. The ‘other two’ ways of seeing the world do not disappear, simply go dormant, when we talk about a person being a clarklike personality or a scottian woman or a rogerian guy, we are referring to the pre-dominant way of seeing the world.
All the rest of what personality theories try to figure out simply makes sense, if you know the kind of world/reality the person is experiencing. Pretty simple and a damned elegant solution to a problem that has been plaguing mankind since we could see our shadows on the walls of the cave, “why on earth would he or she behave that way”?
With the Wakefield Doctrine you will not only be able to answer that question, but you will be able to predict the behavior of (the other) person in any of life’s situations.
…and we have hats! (for your damn heads).
… did we mention the ‘Call in Show?’ damn, well there is a Call In Show that we call Wakefield Saturday Night Drive…this is a set up where you can call a number listed on the Wakefield Doctrine blog (no, the other one) and you can talk live and in realtime to Progenitors and DownSprings!! Really…all the while, we will be in a car driving around the actual geographically locatable Wakefield!! Now, how cool is that…if you do the right thing, there could be a hat (for your damn head) in it for you!.
All this talk about Saturday Night Drive gots me feeling kinda country, so lets listen to Alan sing us a song…
