    first impression - glaring Se-PoLR, most likely alpha and LII

    I agree. Se-polrs always look like they're simultaneously pushing others too harshly and being pushed just as harshly themselves.

    I thought maybe LII at first, but I'm going with IEI, since:

    a) he looks a lot like an IEI guy I know, around the eyes; and

    b) he's really in control of the emotional tone in Buzzcocks: poking fun at people then breaking the tension before the guest throws a hissy fit with a joke directed at someone else, somehow making everyone pick on one person, changing rapidly from caustic to light-hearted etc. His timing and delivery are spot on, and a lot of the comedy comes from the delivery, which to me seems Fe-creative > weak Fe.

    siuntal - is the "obvious Se-PoLR" you're referring to in the interview?

    yes it's in the second interview mostly, especially the later part when he is talking about moving in with the show hosts ... the third video he also says something like "I just say things and people find them funny" which to me implies that he isn't trying to control emotional atmosphere but instead sees it as incidental
