    Er, no? At least, I don't think so. I'd have to have some idea of what you mean before I can say for sure.

    because you want him too? Sooooo much. Because maybe then he can provide inspiration to all those depressed, hopeless INTJs who desperately want to matter, and yet...don't?

    You've just stated that no INTJ could function IRL as House does. Yet you continue to strenuously insist that he is your type.
    Yeah, what was that about logic again...?

Unless you get a statement from the show's creator which says "I understand MBTI and wrote House as an INTJ" it doesn't matter what you think. Nor does it matter that most people disagree with you. I'm pretty sure Sir Arthur Conon Doyle didn't write Sherlock as an INTJ either. And not just because both characters have near superhuman powers of deduction, and as we all know, INTJs suck ass at deductive logic.What this debate does highlight though, is just how absurd the machinations of typology are. "Sure maybe he looks like an ENTP, but that just his inferior Se acting out." Lol. Reasoning thusly, any type can look like any other type. In short, it's a bunch of bollocks.Someone who spent 7? seasons in thrall to his inferior function would likely not be able to hold down a day job. House is a drug addict, routinely gets drunk, into fights, and hooks up with prostitutes. All without noticeably impeding his performance at work. He is a stimulation junkie. He is a prankster. He is a maverick. And a narcissist. (Despite this last, he is not an INTJ.) He cares about solving problems only to the point of achieving a diagnosis. He doesn't generally care whether his patients live or die - i.e he is not "results-oriented" at all. He doesn't care about his department's performance, as long as he has stimulating work to do. He will work a case even after the patient is dead. He is captivated by (apparently) unsolvable puzzles - that's a Ti thing. His whiteboard sessions are not evidence of Te - he doesn't proceed methodically. He doesn't plan what he is going to do. They are Ne brainstorming sessions. He often solves a problem via analogy - pure Ne. He proceeds by trial and error. He does nothing by the book. He improvises constantly. He is the opposite of conscientious. And he is never dull.It is always amusing to watch INTJs jumping through hoops to try to associate their type with someone charismatic though...
    I think you shot yourself in the foot their when you said that house uses deductive logic. I was going to reply to it but @Emotionalogic beat me to it; and did so with thoroughness I would have not have the patience to use. Regarding sherlock (author's version) he clearly uses 'deductive' logic to 'solve cases'. But what is fascinating isn't the logic he uses to solve cases but to read people. And the logic used to read people is inductive logic.

    What logic did you use to deduce that? Crazy logic?

    Whereas all ENTPs are happy, successful, beautiful people with absolutely no unfulfilled desires? Don't see why this bias would apply exclusively to INTJs. It's not like I try to claim every awesome person as an INTJ. I argued recently that Richard Dawkins is an INTP rather than an INTJ. On another note, why don't you stop insulting INTJs and deal with the arguments on the table?

    OK, listen carefully. It's. A. T.V. Show. it doesn't have to be realistic. House doesn't function in real life, he functions in a TV Show. Yes, House couldn't function in real life. That doesn't change the fact that he's an INTJ. Do you think labeling him ENTP would somehow make him more functional? Is that an example of the brilliant INTP deductive logic that I, as a lowly INTJ, can never and could never understand? Or are you just being facetious?

    Oh, burn. I see what you mean about you and House having the same sense of humor.

    @underline, This is the best post I have read all day. So much delicious irony. /is anemic.

    I agree with @Nicodemus in that you must be the new incarnation of LeaT/Kamishi.

    I do think it extremely ironic that Salome insisted House must be XNTP because he's logical and witty, then tried to back it up by displaying her own logic and wit, and failing miserably at both, thereby unintentionally proving my point that wit and logic are far from unique to or guaranteed in XNTPs. It is also ironic that she insists I only want House to be an INTJ to make me feel better about my (presumed) inadequacy, all the while loudly proclaiming the inferiority of INTJs and the superiority of XNTPs.

    I just think it's beautiful that you are talking down to her about how it's a TV show when you are getting your panties in a twist over a TV show at the same time. Especially a TV show that went off the air IN THE PAST.

    Please. Continue.

    Thank You.

    My point wasn't that it's not worth talking about because it's a TV Show, its that you can't expect it to be realistic because it's a TV Show. And House comes off as scattered and improvisational because he's an unhealthy 5 who's showing 7 qualities, not because he's ENTP.
