Just a quick post today.
I have been tasked with describing how to spot rogerian women over at Wakefield Doctrine by the creator (who happens to be a clark). Over there they are exemplified by the Harriet Nelson’s of the 1950’s. This aspect, as it relates to rogerian women, can be summarized by two words: Home Economics. They are the “Suzie Homemakers” …. the epitome of the ideal American family life.
Unlike their predecessors , the rogerian females of the 21st century are exceedingly more independent. Which is not to say that they are not the glue that holds the family together. For the most part they still are the anchor of family life but with all of the freedoms that define women’s liberation. Not necessarily extremists, but benefactors of the results of the movement.
As with all rogers, they still maintain a herd-like quality. They are friends that get together and socialize on a regular basis. Small groups that have a common interest in a specific activity or hobby. They can be seen on the golf course or at an art exhibition. Anywhere that there is a common interest. But this does not mean that they are concerned with being understood amongst the group or elsewhere. Just because they are in a group together, do not misconstrue them as necessarily being “bff‘s.” Rogerian women are more concerned with what they are doing rather than becoming emotionally involved.
Bottom line: Mutual interests. That is what constitutes rogerian women.
For more insight and interpretations to spotting rogerian women as well as the 3 personality types (clarks, scotts and rogers) head on over to the original Wakefield Doctrine . You can also find the topic of rogerian women at GirlieOnTheEdge , the original roger of the Doctrine , and of course the purpose for this post at Wakefield Doctrine Redux.
