    Agreed with Entropie on House.
    A 'knack for flow charts' doesn't necessarily mean Te.
    It sometimes just what you have to do to get things done!

    As it is often said, house only wants results and often acts by trial and error.
    Hmmm. Isn't that virtually the definition of an INTJ's attitude?

    (Typelogic):

    is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake.

    I've never really heard an ENTP called "only wants results", while no INTJ I know would not take it as a badge of honor. This remains true at work, and in my personal life (although I know only a couple of ENTPs well enough to make the judgment on them.)

    House doesn't want results, he wants to solve the puzzle.

    Keep in mind that this is also House's job.
    We have to look at the practical side of things too.
    What else would he do with his life?
    Sometimes the J way of doing things is simply more efficient than the P way.

    that comment reminded me of something. doesn't he have a past patient that he's obsessed with because she died and he never figured out why?

    clearly, the inability to heal her isn't the reason it bugs him.

    Either answer is acceptable (because he failed - very INTJ, not very ENTP; because he couldn't solve the puzzle - More ENTP, less INTJ).

    I've never seen the show, but can someone explain to me why he's not an ENTJ?

    he fails all the time and just moves on to the next theory. it's why he's considered 'risky'.

    One of the things that I noticed the other day when I was watching concerned the use that he makes of his team.
    He wants them to come up with ideas so he can shoot them down, like he's better at thinking of the reasons why an idea is wrong than he is at thinking what the possibilities might be.
