Need help deducting if wall is load bearing : HomeImprovement

I’m pretty sure it isn’t because when I look up into ceiling there are slats running perpendicular that are not joists. So therefore I assume the joist are above these slate and run parallel to my wall thus making my wall not load bearing.

Looking for a second opinion:

I’m putting in a door and would prefer not to do the extra step of building an outer support on one side of wall if it’s load bearing.

Also curious if it isn’t load bearing should I bother with Jack’s in the Frame for the door
