Hey clarks! roger up! If you want to get ahead, start cultivating your rogerian aspect pronto! Emotion, man. It’s all about emotion. Get hungry for….emotion! (“of course we do….no, we don’t have ice water running through our veins….damn straight we feel…..”)
Ideally, for clarks to interact successfully with rogers, we clarks need to be aware of, and be able to easily identify, the cues given off by rogers and act accordingly. No thinking about it, as in “how do I react to that! or “should I ask that question now?” Instead, feel the appropriate response. It’s not simply reacting to a roger, and it’s more than simple identification with the roger. If you are a clark, you must transcend from listening as a clark to feeling as a roger.
Interfacing (to use a somewhat modern term) with rogers is about being in a place emotionally that generates within your own (damn) self, questions. What kind of questions? Questions the roger(s), can relate to on an emotional level. Questions that will engage the two of you in the commerce of emotional currency. Trust me, you’ll know when you’ve had this exchange of emotional currency.
The Wakefield Doctrine tells us that clarks think, scotts act and rogers? They feel. So go for it! Do it! Try using emotion as the catalyst for (the) action. How clarks utilize emotion is what creates (the) energy. And isn’t that what it’s all about for we like people? Energy? So, clarks – ask yourself today: “can I use the energy that results from seeing the world through a roger’s eyes, from engaging the world as a roger?”.
Here’s my Monday challenge for all you clarks: Try tapping into your rogerian aspect and walk through the world today as a roger would. A world where feelings are the name of the game, and emotional currency is king.
