    I find Cameron's type the most annoyingly ambiguous and contradictory. Her default demeanor seems cold and logical, but then she gets all weepy and "ethical" with patients (see: Sleeping Dogs Lie, her crying ethical dilemma on that episode was so f'ing f. It pissed me off)....and don't tell me cold and logical is an INFJ or weepy and ethical is female INTJ. So I'm going to say she's mostly untypeable, I don't think she would exist outside of the minds of the silly writers, although I will say she is clearly more introverted and J than not.
    Cuddy is an obvious female T, and she doesn't get significantly more emotional with patients than her colleagues.
    I can see House as ENTP.

    There's no such thing as 2/3 INTP 1/3 INFP.
    That's just an INTP with T=66%.
    Bullshit, blue, these are fictional characters, and they can be whatever they need to be every new episode. When Wilson moved in with House (Which I hadn't seen before,) he instantly became Mr. Big J, simply because the subplot required it.
    I don't usually bother with this type of exercise, but it was clear from the first episode that the writers are students of typology - almost to the point of parody - and therefore it makes sense in this instance.
    Yeah, because like, everyone knows that NFs never cheat or anything like that.
    Sometimes I really think you've never known an NF gone bad. I could Godwin up this thread, but I won't bother.
    Really? That's pretty funny, because I've been noticing that half the characters are shifting. Cameron hardly does any research toward the end of Season 2. You could call her ISFJ at that point and I'd hardly argue. But she was much closer to INTJ in the first season. Sounds like the writers really got their MBTI chops down!

    And there you have it. What MacGuffin doesn't know about F'ing Fs isn't worth knowing.
    MacGuffin types someone publicly about once a year, and I never agree with it. I don't think I'll be putting a lot of stock in your opinion of his eye either, being that I can never figure out where you get your ideas.

    Fs CAN THINK!!!
    No, really? They just don't "Think" as often, and that makes med school a bit difficult. It's why people who just want to get into the business of caring for people don't become doctors.

    To clarify how I see the characters types at this point:

    House: ENTP
    Cuddy: ESTJ
    Foreman: ISTJ
    Cameron: Too variable
    Wilson: Too variable
    Chase: Too variable?

    Chase is the only of the last three who might actually have a type. Cameron and Wilson have been too self-contradictory to be any one type.

    I apologize for assuming the characters would be static based on the few early episodes I watched. They aren't.

    Dude Flak.
    I'm a pro type-guy-analyzer.

    Wilson is INFJ. Chase is INTP. Cameron is ENFJ.
    Learn functions and how to detect them.
    Thanks.

    That's probably true.

    On the other hand, every doctor I've ever had was an F, and almost every one of them had both a degree and a medical license. Suffice it to say, it's doable.

    Second to that, F's can still be smart, and can be taught logic.
    The way Cameron applies it, it sounds less colloquial and more textbook.

    Third of that, not all Ts are really adept at logic or even rationality. Not even all T dominants...

    Not even many T dominants.

    I don't feel I even need to point out any examples.

    I agree that it is difficult to type fictional characters simply because the writers can make them behave any way they want them to without regard to real life. Many times a character is a conglomeration of behaviors that could be attributed to several types.

    That's typically true of all humans.

    Nothing human is consistent.
    Your avatar for instance has overtones of gluttony and other sin. But I know it's a good painting because the main idea is about baby Jesus, and we can all get along when he's in the room.

    Dammit! I always wanted to say that!!!

    I don't know why I've never put my foot forward to do so.

    Maybe because I was anticipating someone to say it in my head before anything happened, maybe?

    But yeah, a real-life human being is infinitely more complex than a fictional character.
