He’s one of the more rational members of the cast, but does The Office’s primary straight man have a blind spot for his own life? In this video, we find out why the most knowing man of the office needs to know more about himself. If you like this video, subscribe to our channel or support us on Patreon: www.patreon.com/thetake

Fascinated by the argument that inertia (Pam) + detachment (Jim) = a fantastic marriage. People _never_ talk about two individuals’ greatest flaws or issues they have to struggle against as the basis for compatibility. Same way your “Bridesmaids” video on Meghan suggests that needing or being needed is one of the strongest foundations for adult friendship. Neither view is aspirational enough. I’m not sure yet what I think about them, but I’m really glad you made videos that bring them into consideration.

At least fifty percent of the humor of the show comes from Jim's ironic detachment. Which is why it suffered so much in the season where he was mostly written out and in later years when he changed so much.

Jim was abit of a arse. Some of his pranks went to far, and then had the nerve to say Dwight went too far the one time Dwight got his own back

Came to watch old office clips, left learning why I relate to this character in more ways than I realized, deep seated issues and all. Did I become Jim?? Damn. Lol

Dwight is actually great at understanding people and what drives them as well as their thoughts towards him (especially demonstrated in the garage sale episode) he just doesn't subscribe to any of the same ideas they do because he arguably has the most spine out of any character on the show. His only major weakness is how naive he is and how egoboosting arbitrary attribes are for him

Even if Jim being a very fun character, I still hate this archetype. The ironic bastard who points at everybody, but lives a artificial life. Its so telling about people today.

Can makers of these kind of videos understand that sometimes the character does not take certain action for the sake of the story?? If he goes for Pam the 1st season then we would have a different office, same with not taking other job opportunities... then it means he would not be at the office and the dynamic of the office would be different...

I couldn't STAND Jim's character. He was so manipulative and calculatingly "charming". He observed others to weaponise the information to cement this image of "Mr nice guy". Pam saw through it and almost dangled herself infront of him to see how long it would take him to act. They are each others equals with manipulation and power play. They are the wolves in sheep's clothing in society.

I think Jim is the perfect embodiment of what most rational people are like. Doing a not horrible but also not a good job, constantly watching others and judging while also being empathetic, gets things done but also has fun, and not willing to fix their own lives. I find a lot of people are stuck in hypocrisy and wasted potential. They aren't people you would hate but also people you wouldn't look up to as a role model.

The straight man ususally isn't much of a character but a tool for the author, that's what I like about Jim, they play the fact that he's the straight man as a flaw and end up making a whole great character arc around that

Thank you for pointing out that Jim is the "straight man" or "base" of the series. No one else figured that out by episode 2 in 2005.

One of the defining moments of Jim is when he tries to manage the office for a day. While it's easy to mock Michael for his management style, it's far more difficult to actually implement the changes you think make sense. It ends up blowing up in his face, because he's never actually engaged with the work.

I always thought the reason nobody in the show (especially Jim) left the job they hated was because of the state of the economy when the show took place. That’s part of what makes the series relatable and timeless- almost everyone has been in a job they don’t like because it’s the one they got and they have to pay the bills. You get annoyed daily but tolerate it because you don’t have a choice.

I am a large slightly pretentious black male so whenever I say I relate to Jim (the perceivably chillest and most attractive male on the popular show, the Office) most people are adhere to the idea. After watching this video, I can clearly see that though we have our differences, Jim and I share a great deal of similarities
