    You clearly don't understand the difference between E__P and I__P.

    They're actually very different creatures, even if the two letters in between are identical.

    INTP might do what you mention above, but an ENTP, on average, would quicker put their intuitive idea to work.

    Everybody lies.

    ...actually, especially House.
    Especially regarding his personal decisions.

    I can turn it around on you by saying you need to watch without blinders, because it appears you're not privy to the liary and deceit that goes on, and is later exposed.

    And I'm not even done!
    Lemme turn this around on you from another perspective -- learn typology without blinders on.

    He reacts to everything outside of himself. He is unable to find a solution without engaging someone or something that leads to a sudden epiphany. He always bounces ideas into the physical world, with multiple perspectives at once. Ne meta overload. I've seen every single episode. He's straight up ENTP. Substitute's quote below, explains what House does perfectly.

    Or like, if I have an idea to do something like, suppose something annoys me like the the billionth time I go to the bathroom and find myself looking at that dripping faucet and thinking "that's it, I've had it, I'm gonna fix that!" and though I've no idea how, I'll be suddenly really energised and I'll look up how to do it, then go out and get all the stuff and set to work and get it done.

    So... possibilities and making things happen. If I get a whiff of the possibility that I can make something happen, something cool or useful or whatever, then it'd get me up and running even if my battery was on zero, so to speak.

    I would say people also energise me, but it totally depends on the people. Some people have the opposite effect, particularly "good listeners". I don't want someone to just sit and listen, that's BORING and gets me right down. I want someone to talk back to me and fuel the idea machine, to brainstorm and rapid fire with me, to help generate possibilities, and/or join in with me in a spontaneous project/idea/possibility. The person who does that becomes a god in my eyes lol

    Since you offered no further support, I have nothing to address.

    For reference, here's the two dictomies;

    E Extraversion preferred to Introversion: ENTPs often feel motivated by their interaction with people. They tend to enjoy a wide circle of acquaintances, and they gain energy in social situations (whereas introverts expend energy).[6]
    P Perception preferred to Judgment: ENTPs tend to withhold judgment and delay important decisions, preferring to "keep their options open" should circumstances change.[9]

    I Introversion preferred to Extraversion: INTJs tend to be quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations (whereas extraverts gain energy).[8]
    J Judgment preferred to Perception: INTJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability, which to perceptive types may seem limiting. [11]


    The better question is... why am I back in this thread...? *poof*

    Well, actually, Introverted Js still put higher priority on a form of perception than they do Judgment, they just Extravert their Judgement. So I don't think you can say that IJs prefer Judgement, per se.

    Well PT if you're gonna fight dirty then good riddance.

    Listen to the Poriferan. Except that last pair of words.

    'Per se' doesn't make sense there...

    I originally said INTJ. Then I actually started watching House, and it is crystal clear he's an ENTP.

    Can we stop debating this now?


    I... suppose. Yeah!
