    I'm just curious what you prefer in regards to P and J...

    Judging:
    *Plan many of the details in advance before moving into action.
    *Focus on task-related action; complete meaningful segments before moving on.
    *Work best and avoid stress when keep ahead of deadlines.
    *Naturally use targets, dates and standard routines to manage life.
    Perceiving:
    *Comfortable moving into action without a plan; plan on-the-go.
    *Like to multitask, have variety, mix work and play.
    *Naturally tolerant of time pressure; work best close to the deadlines.
    *Instinctively avoid commitments which interfere with flexibility, freedom and variety

    Do you set schedules and plan or are you more open ended and spontaneous? If your results vary, then you're probably just pretty balanced.

    House is a fictional character, his personality in the show does only work, because it plays well together within the environment its put in and the other characters it reacts too. Most of the time fictional characters aint good to compare for type, although they can set nice ideals .

    If you want to find out about p or J, you really should look into function analysis. The 4-letter type code is only a description for function distribution, many people confuse that.

    If you are for example ENTP, you would have:

    Extraverted Intuition
    Introverted Thinking
    ---
    Extraverted Feeling
    Introverted Sensing

    The first 2 indicate your primary functions, while the last 2 indicate auxiliary functions. How you use them in life, should become from secure on the top, so the first function, to insecure on the bottom, the forth function.

    N and S, so Intuition and Sensing are perceiving functions, while T and F are rational functions. So while T and F are the CPU of your computer that processes the information, N and S are different mechanisms to gather information, through concious or unconcious means.

    So, if your 1st function is a perceiving functions, your are in terms of MBTI a p and if it is a rational function you are a J.

    To associate that J's are more to be the leader type or whatever associations there are, is not good. But to have a rational function as your primary one brings certain advantages with it when it comes to being sure about a decision. While a perceiving function for example, can't stop taking in new information or looking for new, before it makes a decision. - (on the other hand it can mean that J's are to quickly or strictly to make a decision)

    And from that point on, you can draw all kinds of new connections

    Well, when it comes to the MBTI community, it depends on whether you'd be prefer to be thought of as a dull tightwad who would run off a cliff if their GPS told them to, or a lazy good-for-nothing who wouldn't have enough of a sense of agency to consider themselves responsible for not paying the electric bill on time.

    Either is unacceptable. Really, it's your choice.

    Good one, Haphazard!
