From this whole week the one thing that stuck out the most is how awkward correct interviews are. The reason why they are so awkward is because two different people are coming together to learn about one person only. We as people learn to keep our troubles close to us and protect them from others judgments, so having this interview conflicts with our natural instinct. However, I learned that through subtle gestures, body language and speaking tone can drastically change the responses from the person you are interviewing.
The most interesting that I saw in the class was on Wednesday when the theater lady came in, and she did trail interviews and taught us the 'Yes and...'game. I found it very educational seeing the way she acted different when Dr. P change his attitude. It helped me understand why interview are awkward at first and if they are not treated properly then they will go off track. During this time I was sitting in a circle watching them act; I could see when the mood changes when Dr. P acted differently. It was so interesting because I had no idea how Dr. P was going to act next, and plus it was funny.
I would want to interview a family friend; his name is Mr. Mike. I met him this year and I know he has been through a lot. I know he was in the Navy as a core-man but know he works as a carpenter; why the huge career change? So i want to hear stories of what he has been through, because I know it is a lot.
