I know! That’s not how the saying goes. But if you think about it just a nanosecond longer it makes sense. Do I need to preface it by saying it makes “perfect” sense if you are a clark? Good. Glad everyone has visited the Wakefield Doctrine aka the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers, and acquainted themselves with the basics. (psst…on my Blogroll)
clarks think. One of my favorite descriptions found in the Wakefield Doctrine (for it being so spot on) is how important knowledge (and it’s bastard son information) is to clarks. And that my friend is the evil of which I speak. The search for knowledge and information very often can lead a clark away from that which he/she seeks. The need “to know” all the facts or “have all the information” before acting for clarks is more often than not, a burden and at times detrimental. The cerebral interferes with the physical. What I mean by that is that the body “knows” first, before the brain (“knows”). I’ll call it ” instinct”. The brain interprets a situation with the handicap of time – time for various synapses to link up and “tell” a person what is going on, what he/she should do etc. The body on the other hand can automatically lead a person if they know how to listen. At times the challenge for a clark is how not to allow one’s brain to interfere with spontaneous action. Speaking of….
In contrast, scotts act. Of the moment, spontaneous, scotts have no need to sit and think about anything really. Their behavior is predicated on the “hunt”. The instinctive need to separate the dominant from the submissive and not in the fun way. Oftentimes charismatic, they very often emerge as leaders – just because. Damn don’t they sound like they know what they are talking about? They are so certain.
Rounding out the 3 rd way by which to view the world are the rogers. rogers feel. Everything. For they have the weight of the world on their shoulders. They are the keepers of humanity, of history, the engineers that tweak the gears of society. rogers are of the masses, they travel within the ulitmate herd.
Hey! Here’s an idea. The Progenitor clark and Downspring Glenn have for many years engaged in a Saturday Night Drive about the very real town of Wakefield discussing among other things, what has come to be known as the Wakefield Doctrine which describes how if one knows how someone views the world then it can be known how that person will act and react in the world. Pretty damned helpful I’d say. Anyway, thanks to emerging technology, the Progenitor clark and Downspring Glenn will be available live during their weekly driveabout to answer any questions a person might have regarding the Wakefield Doctrine – anything from “what is the basic premise of the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers?” to “what exactly is a clark or a scott or a roger?” or “how do I tell what I am and where can I go for more information?” AND IT’S FREE! Here’s all you need to know to call in tonight, Saturday night:
