Anyway, ‘find the clark‘ Day was just practice, a little warmup if you will for the main event: ’tag a scott’ Week!
Yes, you read that correctly, it is a whole week of fun.
‘Tag a scott’ Week is 7 days because this little ‘walk on the wild side’ is meant to help us better understand not only the wily scott but also rogers. (Wait, did he just say’…also rogers?’)
(No way! OMG! we don’t have to go out there and look for scotts by ourselves do we?) (Yes roger, yes you do)
So, a brief overview, quick Q&A and off you go…
The quarry: scott
(A group of scotts is a pack, the ways of a pack speaks volumes to the nature of it’s members.
The pack will function as a group only for relatively narrowly defined goals/purposes. Securing food and defending territory.)
The scottian individual will, (upon entering any social environment), push everyone on the shoulder (figuratively or literally). This is done to elicit a reaction/response and thereby allowing the scott to establish ranking. Does the other person push back or not? If they do not, they are prey, if they do push back, then a quick struggle and the ranking in the pack is determined. Scotts will ‘work the room’, never staying in one group for too long.
This behavior is perceived as being very social, scotts are always the life of the party; but their actual purpose is to locate the other scotts, establish ranking and territory and then to the primary purpose of coming out: find the food.
The reason for this is that in the wild there are more rogers than scotts (or clarks for that matter). So if we are looking for a scott, the easiest thing to do is identify their food source and go there. In the social wild, scotts will be found always on the move. You will rarely see more than two scotts in the same social setting, at least for any extended period of time. As has been said, scotts are the hunters, the predators.
So you say, “What are we to learn about rogers during tag a scott Week?”
Real simple. scotts like rogers. They like them anytime. Lunch time, Dinner time, Snack time. For the more in-depth explanation of the relationship between scotts and rogers, you are going to have to ask (read all the pages first). So for the purposes of this little event, if you are tracking the wily scott, do what any hunter will do. Go to where the food is, learn the routines, and wait patiently.
Just so no one out there thinks we at the Doctrine are denigrating rogers, let me remind you that we all have the qualities of all three forms, (clarks, scotts and rogers) and it is simply a predominance of one over the other that makes us what we are. There are not good or better types, each has its strengths and its weaknesses. In fact, the secret goal of the Wakefield Doctrine is, in fact, to find ways to develop full all three aspects. So let’s hear it for the girls…
Rogers are not hunters, they are group/herd/social beings. Rogers exist in the context of the group, the herd. Rogers are the reason we have stable civilizations throughout history. They are the bookkeepers and the doctors. Rogers are the engineers and the judges. Without them we would not have rules of behavior, etiquette or polite behavior. Without rogers, scotts would be baying at the moon in a pre-historic environment.
So, go out there this week starting Monday at 11:00 am (scotts hate the mornings) and ending at midnight the following Monday.
The rules are simple: identify the scott and come back with something they own.
(Without getting eaten)
Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three…but mostly one
