A medley of emotion… of mix tapes and relationships. All in the context of the Wakefield Doctrine (..of course!)
Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)
Our friend Jen, at Breaking the Parenting Mold has written a Post titled: Twisted Mix-tape Tuesday and has invited her Readers to devise (or create or imagine of compile) as list of songs to resonate with a certain theme, in the case of today’s Post it is:
‘Why you have to play me like this?’
The real challenge here is a very interesting, albeit in a different context, challenge for those of us working on the Wakefield Doctrine. The Doctrine holds that we all live our lives in one of three worldviews, and that what most people refer to as personality type, the Wakefield Doctrine maintains is simply an appropriate strategy in dealing with the nature of the world that one finds themselves in, there being three characteristic worldviews: the world of the Outsider, the worldview of the Predator and the reality of the Member of the Herd. It is how a person relates themselves to these three (very real) personal realities that produces what is called personality types. Where this mix tape thing is interesting is that it is asking us to take a very personal emotional perception and pick songs that represent the subjective experience that occurs when the individual listens to a song. Where this is related to the Wakefield Doctrine is in that we maintain that for the three personality types, the three worldview, how life is experienced is, how the individual manifests themselves is based on three very distinct… somethings…. lol. Lets try to get all basic: the three personality types are clarks(the Outsider), scotts(the Predator and rogers(the Member of the Herd) and one way of describing the three is: clarks think, scotts act and rogers feel. And part of the challenge (and huge potential benefit) is to acquire the ability to perceive the world as ‘the other two’ do. Of course, the problem arises when you realize that each are manifesting from distinctly different perspectives: rational thought, direct action and subjective emotion.
Where this all ties into Jen’s project is how do you translate one subjective experience into a form that can be relayed and accepted by another person causing (that person) to experience the same emotion/reaction/thought…
