    Well, yes. He is very obviously depressed.

    Not really. He tends to play games with people to study them, rather than for the hell of it; and doesn't approach people unless he needs to bounce ideas off them (which all Ne types do, even the introverted ones -- Ne-doms just do it more often). A misanthropic and depressed ENTP would just randomly approach people and annoy them, for lulz.

    ...An ENP physician, for example, may realize, with sudden insight, that several unexplained symptoms are actually part of a single disease. As an Extraverted type, the physician has no doubt that the disease syndrome really exists. The pattern was always there, waiting for someone to discover it. ( Extraverted Intuition )
    Sounds familiar...... I'll just leave this here.

    A lot of the characters are balanced, like Cuddy I think is written as ExxJ. it's hard to tell.
    Strychnine is all-natural,
    So strychnine is all good.
    It's Godly and righteous,
    So eat it, you should.
    Who are you to refuse nature's will?

    Television characters can have inconsistent cognitive traits and some often do. I do agree that House is an NTP at least, deciding E(Ne) vs I(Ti) is hard for him, he seems really good at both actually.

    Are you and me watching the same House or is it like The Office where each country gets their own?

    Watching the BBC's new incarnation of Sherlock Holmes, I came to this conclusion too. Don't know why this didn't occur to me before. (Holmes v House )

    Holmes: "Shut-up"
    Detective: "I didn't say anything!"
    Holmes: "You were thinking; it's annoying"

    Holmes in turn was based on the brilliant nineteenth century diagnostician, Dr Joseph Bell (a Scot*, naturally).

    I've seen Holmes typed as INTP, INTJ, ISTP, ESTP, but in this latest adaptation, he looks (provisionally) a lot like an antisocial ENTP.

    "I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation."
    Could be the ENTP tagline.


    *That's right. In addition to inventing the modern world we also gave you House, M.D.
    You're welcome.

    So House is a fictional Doctor based off of a fictional Detective based off of a real Doctor.

    So I guess it kind of went full circle.

    He seemed to me to be an ENTP until his stint in the psychiatric hospital, from which he emerged as an INTP.
