In my previous post on couples I discussed the scottian/rogerian couple and mentioned a follow up post specifically on the scottian female/rogerian male couple.
However, after reading a post on GirlieOnTheEdge’s Blog this morning I have decided to change that. Go read this and come back here. You’ll understand why I have chosen to discuss the relationship between clarks and scotts and rogers.
At the request of “Girlie” I have been asked to answer why rogers are best to be in a relationship for clarks and scotts.
For clarks it is beneficial to their psyche (even though they do have an affinity towards scotts). Clarks are cerebral. Scotts are doers. The long term “resident relationship” of a clark and scott would drive a clark to madness. To have to endure the antics of a scott would shift the universe for a clark and probably leave him in a straight jacket.
Likewise, a scott would be bored to tears in a relationship with a clark. No action-packed fun there.
So why are rogers the easiest to be in a relationship with?
To borrow the words from the Wakefield Doctrine “rogers are the ones that go through their days with a stupid grin on their faces” and “rogers are the ultimate conformists.” Now think about that in terms of a relationship. It would seem to suggest that rogers are the most malleable of the three.
Rogers are usually very passive. Never wanting to rock the boat so to speak. However, sometimes this passivity can be misconstrued as laziness or even disinterest. They are eager to please, but not at the cost of allowing another to take advantage of them. They will and do venture from their herd-like mentality given it is worth it for the “right” person.
Moving along, rogers can laugh at themselves easily. It doesn’t bother them too much to be the butt of the joke (which is a subtle way that scotts tend to refer to their rogerian partners). Rogers do enjoy laughing at others, but usually not with mal-intent. They’re goal-oriented and when serious just might surprise you by their strong convictions. They are, for the most part, agreeable. But not to the point of being submissive. Rogers are non-confrontational for the most part which works well for the scottian counterpart who deems him/herself as being somewhat superior and works well for a clark because there is no explosive disruption. Clarks can be left to trying to figure out the universe and its’ impact on him/her. And scotts can, well, you know….
There is one characteristic of rogers that absolutely cannot be overlooked. That is their affinity for history and ramblings that go on and on and on and can be quite annoying. But that is best left for another conversation.
Don’t forget to give us a call at the Wakefield Doctrine Saturday night live call-in. Details are on the upper right-hand corner of the sidebar. Comments, questions, anything (related to the Doctrine of course) are welcome.
