A to Z Learn Something New Every Day

WAKEFIELD in the WILD

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine, the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers… no not really, but any definitions on this post are stolen directly from that blog*.  I would recommend you hitting the link below and getting over there if you want to officially learn about the Doctrine.

WAKEFIELD DOCTRINE 

*”The Wakefield Doctrine maintains that everyone is born with the capability to experience life in one of  threeworldviews (personal realities), characterized as that of ‘the Outsider’ (a clark), ‘the Predator’ (a scott) and the worldview of ‘the Herd Member’ (a roger). Depending on which of these three a person ends up in, we say that a person is a clark or a scott or a roger. 
When we say, ‘experience the world’ we don’t just mean things aboutyou, we mean the way you see the world, the assumptions you make, how you feel about other people; in other words, how do you relate yourself to the world around you?”

*”The ‘premise of identity’ for a roger is that of group member, similar to those in his group(herd), definately different from nearly all other not members of the herd she might see, in the world at large. There is a (self-awareness) of being emotionally capable, perhaps even superior.”

The gal below could easily be a scott as seen by her death stare into the camera… perhaps just the gal in back is a Clark…. the unusual footwear is throwing me off.

MOST LIKELY A FEMALE CLARK... NOTE THE FOOTWEAR.

*”The ‘premise of identity’ for a scott is that of predator/hunter, the world consists of those who appear either as clearly weaker and inferior or equal and therefore require challenging. There is a (self-awareness) of being physically capable, perhaps even superior.”

NOW THAT YOU HAVE THE IDEA… HOW DO THEY ALL INTERACT?

unnamed (5) SEE THE ROOSTER IN THE BACK? You would think by the nature of his being a rooster he would be scottian… he is a clark… looking in and dressed unlike anyone else.Our guy tends to be standoffish and shy with the ladies.  Daisy (the white gal in the forefront) also a clark, note she is looking off outside the group… you may need to know her for this, but she has a very strong secondary scott. She took on the defense of one of the baby chicks that was being picked on by all the rogerian chickens. She can take on a whole pack of genocidal rogers. That gal looking at the camera… she’s a scott.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! unnamed (10) WHO’S WHO?

Thanks goes out to Progenitor Clark.admin.thumbnail Now that you’re an expert you clearly know he’s the guy in the middle.

  1. Not sure where I fit into this pattern. But there may be a place for introverted Bears. Somewhere.

    Blessings and Bear hugs to you and you caniche. Wally says “Hi” to Douglas.

    1. But if you ask Clark, Clark, Clark it is he who will say your opinion is the one that matters. Maybe you just have a strong secondary characteristic. They can be close to equal or they can be stronger in some circumstances and weaker in others . For example stronger when in your real life and you see yourself as more of a Clark and not as prevelant when those who would suggest your are not a clark are apt to deal with you.
      SCREW EVERYONE ELSE AND BE AN EFFING CLARK IF YOU THINK YOU ARE!

      1. You know, I was thinking of the WD all weekend at my chorus competition. Post brewing. No room for Clarks there. I had such fun picturing Clark himself there.

  2. I like the pictures and descriptions of the three worldviews from your point of view. A Clark feels like a lonely petunia in an onion patch. (That’s me- or maybe an onion in a petunia patch).

  3. The descriptions belong entirely to Mr. Farley.
    I think it the petunias in the onion patch cuz somewhere in there clarks have a superiority thing going….its deep and well hidden…but its there! as a clark ican say that!

    1. I’m not sure it’s always well hidden. It’s something I identify with, which is likely why I find it annoying in others. We often hate a mirror.

  4. well, at least if I find a need to wander the desert for 40 days and 40 nights (deep hidden megalomaniacal streak, me?!?!)… I know that the Doctrine had people who do indeed understand it. Knowing is one thing, understanding is the requirement for being able to explain a thing (through words, or more telling in your post today… the photo illustrations!) muy excellento!

    ya know… I coulda written as good (and more importantly useful…as is the case with your Post) post about the Doctrine, but they changed the alphabet on me….so I spend most of my available post writing time on the letter U….which is sorta like a W… halfways at least. lol

    you have totally gotten it correct…. your predominant worldview is a function of how you relate yourself to the world around you not what people think of you, hell, not even how you relate to the world! how you relate yourself to the world is where the predominant worldview is found.

    (yeah, I know!! all I had to have done is get the letter correct and we would have had two comprehensive Posts on the Wakefield Doctrine! lol… thank you for this Post I laughed when I saw the illustrating photos! nicely done!
