    Re: the OP... I laughed a LOT at the interview, mostly because I'm almost exactly his age, and I know a lot of people with similar personalities to him, and on a gut level I understand the frustration of having to deal with an overly enthusiastic interviewer who doesn't seem to understand that you have MOVED ON and are NOT AN ACTOR ANYMORE. The quote that I laughed at most was "Yeah, and I've been in school THE ENTIRE TIME, so..."

    (also, he seemed, like Jennifer said, to be lacking in Fe; I could see him being xxTJ.)

The discussions were interesting, because I'd definitely see the difference between an STJ assessment and the NTP assessment.
    Yeah, I know enough exceptions to the sensors-and-sci-fi rule that I pretty much don't consider it to be a rule anymore. The most sci-fi hating person I know is an INTJ.

    (also, if Mal is looking for more Sensor opinions -- I love sci-fi. I'm not always a sci-fi fangirl but I definitely am about some series. It helps that I grew up with parents who love all varieties of sci-fi; my dad reads "hard" sci-fi, e.g. Ringworld, and my mom is a big fan of Bradbury and Asimov.)

    Couldn't agree more. I loved that duel, and that scene where Maul was pacing behind the shield/barrier was basically the highlight of the whole movie. He was so brooding. It was glorious.

    The interviewer was fucking obnoxious. The kid's a TJ, probably ITJ. He was reading things (properly, I might add) into the interviewer's questions that were underhandedly mocking him. There are major Fe/Fi differences going on here. The Fe people are like, "oh, just let it go, and continue on for the sake of social harmony", and the ISFP and I are like, "fuck the interviewer, his underhandedly mocking questions, and maintaining social harmony, respond how you fucking feel like kid".

    And, for the record, I loved the original three movies, hated the most recent three, and thought the kid was horrible as Anakin Skywalker.

    Is it just me or is the interviewer ten times more awkward than Anakin? I would have cringed just listening to his voice and his stupid questions if I hadn't been laughing at how obviously rattled he was at not being able to get anything out of the kid.

    I'm guessing he gets paid decent money to attend conventions and doesn't give two shits about the fans. And its not a stretch to assume that part of his job involves doing a few interviews to promote the convention. The guy clearly doesn't care to be there, so why else would he be doing this aside from purely financial interests?

    I think you are very right.

    Agree. The interviewer may have been a lil obnoxious (aren't most TV people?) but I did not sense any dark hidden motive to mock him. Questioning him on any future interest to act, how being such a famous child star impacted him and some red carpet experiences seems fairly status quo, imo. If anything, Jake was mocking the interviewer. It was as if he expected the rest of the world to just know that his part in this film impacting him in anyway now is a preposterous notion, which I say BS on. I suspect he has had some conflict (be it internal or external) that has left him very guarded about it. I think that if he was truly okay with his whole Star Wars part and where he is now it would have gone much smoother. In the very least this is a perfect example of two different perspectives colliding.

    No. Watch a Henry Rollins interview. He's got a better sense of space, even for being a caustic, old punk rocker. Or Craig Ferguson, who disarms people by being more self-deprecating, and sometimes flirty, than anything. Larry King and Charlie Rose just come off intensely curious about everyone. Then there are others who like to be disarming by making comments or observations they find funny, but too much at the expense of the interviewee. Not everyone wants to play along as the clown for some interviewer's smug jokes. That stuff is probably cool though, when you know someone well.

    oh wow, you must be getting all kinds a vagina cause you were once a child star for a single movie that I and probably alot of people dont give a fu*& about. so how are you getting laid these days? hmm? oh you are using the editor card?


    he should have kept to talking about his experiences on the set, any bloopers or funny things that happened on the set. stuff like that.
