    You know, I think you are confusing many things. The first being that just like any ordinary being, introverts can be happy, and extroverts can be depressed (especially when they suffer from a constant pain).

    1) House is very clearly a Ne-dom, and as every Ne-dom, he gets quickly bored of everything. That's why he enjoys nothing less but to play and tease people around him. He needs external stimulis to keep his enthusiasm up.

    2) The thinking function of ENTPs is Ti, which means he has to "retreat within himself" when he "needs to really think on".

    3) Nonetheless, he's a skilled manipulator (tertiary Fe), even if he lacks Fi (= concern for other people/ethical code).

    To profile him, you should rather use cognitive functions. And the result is Ne-Ti-Fe, and not at all Ni-Te-Fi.

    I'm a happy introvert. Well, happy in the sense that I'm not depressed.

    I did look at the cognitive functions aspect as well.
    Also, since there's such an argument over his type, he is one of the fictional characters that can't be easily typed.

    I hate to use myself as an example, but it's the first thing that comes to mind.

    I've taken the Cognitive processes test three times. I've taken practically every credibly MBTI test out there multiple times (the real one first though). I'm typed INTJ for a very large percent of the MBTI tests, and I've been typed INTP only when I rush it. (I've tried experimenting different tests with different mindsets and the like)
    However, on the cognitive processes test, I scored INTP, ENTP, and INTJ respectively each time I took it. (over like two weeks)

    I have mostly Te but very close Ne, Ti, and Ni. And yet I know personally (from social steryotypes to trademarked descriptins to my own insight) that I am INTJ. So maybe there's something similar going on there. (I'm definitely not an expert and so I have little to suggest here).

    Also, as was pointed out, he is in constant pain. it is touched upon that he is "happier" on stronger meds, less pain, etc. -both as a moral issue in the plot line and development of his character. He is also extremely angered when the truth is kept from him (Lol, season 5 episode 17- watched it last night. free on some site) and would be much "happier" with the truth. The pain may play apart in changing what we see to what he "truly" is without it.

    How INTJ of you to point that! An ENTP (like House) would just give me something to suck on.
    There's your difference, right there!

    something to suck on.

    I'm also in high school, its a given I'll be retarted with things like this. I get alot of practice.

    Also, I think it was something to suck on in itself. Left up to the immagination for some, a vivid mental immage for others. House wouldn't have said "A lime flavored vag bag for ya", he would've said something alluding to the fact that some people could take what is being said as a dirty joke.

    Haha, or would've gone "I never knew you were that kinky."

    I meant House is generous with his popsicles. I've no idea what you are referring to.

    LOLOLOLOL.

    I've actually done things like that in real life. (or on the internet for that matter, haha)
    I find it terribly amusing though. It makes them so uncomfortable.

    House as INTJ... (Caveat: I'm watching season one.)

    Y'ever see him plan anything? Anything at all? Even the semblance of a plan?

    And when it's diagnosis time, it's white board and an audience time, not retreat to the books, find the answer, then tell everyone to suck it and see time.

    And an INTJ in chronic pain? Would they even go into work? How come he isn't plotting his suicide and blurting it out to people around him?
