Okay, I just watched re-watched the episode in the first season where she goes to House's place to tell him why she liked him...and I am convinced of her extroversion. In fact, all she did was nag through that whole episode. I can't imagine an introvert acting that way, and especially not an INFJ.
Anyway, regardless of her type, she could well be the most useless character on the show.
house uses Ni Ti to solve problems, that leaves two options, INTJ or INTP.
House is not an extorvert, and not entp, becavse ENTP has some resemblance to ESTP, and house does not.
EP (extroverted perception) trust other people feedback, IPs their his own instinct and ignore other people's BS. Clearly the latter case often applies to house.
You're wrong. House uses Ne Ti.
"Extraverted iNtuiting involves noticing hidden meanings and interpreting them, often entertaining a wealth of possible interpretations from just one idea or interpreting what someoneís behavior really means. It also involves seeing things ďas if,Ē with various possible representations of reality. Using this process, we can juggle many different ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and meanings in our mind at once with the possibility that they are all true. This is like weaving themes and threads together. We donít know the weave until a thought thread appears or is drawn out in the interaction of thoughts, often brought in from other contexts. (Aha! Moment) Thus a strategy or concept often emerges from the here-and-now interactions, not appearing as a whole beforehand. Using this process we can really appreciate brainstorming and trust what emerges, enjoying imaginative play with scenarios and combining possibilities, using a kind of cross-contextual thinking. Extraverted iNtuiting also can involve catalyzing people and extemporaneously shaping situations, spreading an atmosphere of change through emergent leadership."
The bold is House. Also, ENTPs and ESTPs may share hyperactive-ness, sometimes not all the time, but other than that the only real thing we have in common is we share Ti. I actually find ENTPs to be more like ISTPs.
I'll quote something from the INTJ forum, just to give you a example of a true ENTP. This quote is 100% me, and I'm ENTP (or ILE-Ti if you are into Socionics).
"You people don't know many ENTPs do you?
They are the most introverted extraverts there are. They don't need masses of people, but they need someone to ignite their Ne. The way House needs someone, whether Wilson, his team, random airline passengers, or the janitor to kick start his thinking."
Extroversion is not about being a "people person". It's the way you react to things, and how you express yourself. If I have someone to rant at then I feel energized, and ready to be challenged. I can do this when I'm alone by looking at myself in third person and creating little igniting conversations. I will say it does help to be extrovert when I need to talk to people or get out in front of a crowd. I just wish that I could keep my snide remarks to myself ... wait no I don't.
House is ENTP. End of Story.
PS. INTJ's have Te not Ti. So what you are saying is He's either ENTP or INTP. Yep, I'm new and my post is already more insightful then yours.
Anyway, Hello. This is my first post and I am a ENTP. E High Moderate | N High | T Very High | P Medium. Thinking is what I score highest on.
