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?
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.)
Keep in mind that this is also House's job.

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.
