    House is above all afraid to maintain any deep relationship. So, as a 5, he typically compenss that loneliness by a feeling that he is "superior" because he can "do without that" by opposition with everyone else. Your quote show above all that House tends to sabote his success, wich is a typical 6 thing. He has'nt the oniric world of a 5w4 and is too much analytical to be a 5w4. As a Social first, he like attention, but he has not conflict about his image, on other hand, the 6 wing reinforce his conflicts with power issues.

    Actually, I changed my mind.

    House: ENTJ (I've thought about it, and he seems to be very in-charge rather than get-things-going.)
    Cuddy: ISTJ
    Wilson: ISFJ
    Foreman: ESTJ (Si subtype)
    Cameron: ESFJ
    Chase: ISTP
    Thirteen: (I think she's either badly written or badly acted, because while we are aware that her character is supposed to be a "moral compass" type, she still comes off as cold.)
    Taub: ISTJ
    Amber: ESTJ (Te subtype)
    Kutner: EXTP
    Lucas: ENTP

    I don't know about the new folks. I'll have to watch more.

    ^ house does seem kind of in charge, but i also see that in the INTP 5s in my family when they're in their domains of expertise. very in charge.

    And he's most definitely not a 7. Season 2 established that while he doesn't like his physical pain he clings to his emotional misery like a drowning man to a life raft (driven by his secondary 4 fix).
    oh hai aleksei

    true about 7. i have the same thought about 5 though, he's pretty engaged for a 5. do you really see him as a gut type over head though? i have a 1w2 family member, i can't even begin to imagine how she'd respond to house... i think she'd hate him. talk about how he has no goodwill and hates people. he is kind of uptight and he's in healthcare, but i thought one of the huge themes in the show was how house (in a bad state) just does medicine for the sake of curiosity, instead of for any "humane" reason. and he breaks rules right and left because he just doesn't really care, i have a hard time seeing that from a 1w2 (though i agree with you on wilson's 2w1 sx/so). like telling his team to sneak into people's houses or whatever, or announcing to the hospital that he's slept with cuddy. i think i'm convincing myself back to 5 - with him taking on the role of lead surgeon or team leader as he integrates to 8 and being a taunting jackass when he's disintegrating to 7. oh hey, that works with the drugs too.

    i agree about Fe but an INTP could easily carry that too, my INTP brother thinks most people are idiots and is pretty vocal about it. he still seems to be surprisingly "narrow" for a Ne dom. his hobbies - motorcycle, running, music. his profession - diagnostics. honing in. maybe that's the 5 if he's ENTP, though.

    ...and he's an sx-dom, according to you?

    Never heard that. What's your reasoning for that?

    He has'nt the oniric world of a 5w4 and is too much analytical to be a 5w4. As a Social first, he like attention, but he has not conflict about his image, on other hand, the 6 wing reinforce his conflicts with power issues.
    The problem is there's no evidence House likes attention. House spends his time lurking in his office or poking at people for his own amusement. That's the problem with the idea of House as a Social 5 -- he's not a guru type. He doesn't ever make himself useful, doesn't feel the need to be useful. He takes cases on his own time, for his own amusement and in service of him. Nobody else.

    Forget I typed him a 1 -- it's not important, I just don't think Withdrawing fits him. What concerns me is that you think he isn't so-last, which, I repeat, is just dumb.

Of course Foreman himself started getting reckless, but then he worked for House for years -- it was bound to rub off (Te dom and all).

    I already presented my argument on the rest.

    That's Keirsey bullshit. It has nothing to do with MBTI or Jung functions.

    Perhaps... The basis for 1 is more than anything disintegration into 4.

    i agree about Fe but an INTP could easily carry that too, my INTP brother thinks most people are idiots and is pretty vocal about it. he still seems to be surprisingly "narrow" for a Ne dom. his hobbies - motorcycle, running, music. his profession - diagnostics. honing in. maybe that's the 5 if he's ENTP, though.
    Well, INTPs can be very misanthropic and it doesn't necessarily have to have fuck-all to do with Fe, it doesn't mean necessarily your brother's ENTP. I think House's misanthropy is Fe-driven, because it was presented by the story that way -- his misanthropy is specifically motivated by a burning need to alleviate his own self-loathing. Which found that outlet.

    Ok, I'm bored, I'll get in the discussion (speculation)

    1. I have never seen a "type 5" ENTP, as an extravert, you interact more than you observe, INTPs are type 5.

    It's not that I'm disagreeing with you, but this is a little inconsistent.

    2. House is Ne dom, but he doesn't really look like an ENTP to me.

    I haven't seen ENTPs bully. They'd rather entertain everyone. (I'm not saying it's impossible, it's just unlikely)

    An explanation would be that Hugh Laurie is not ENTP, and while playing this ENTP character, he brings some of his own traits, combining them with the ENTPness of the character.

    So maybe this is why people are having trouble typing House....it's because the guy playing him isn't ENTP....(but I've read a page of his book and it seemed pretty ENTP to me)

    I don't know.


    (nah I was wrong...Hugh Laurie's ENTP)

    Hugh Laurie is, in all probability, actually ENTP (some sort of EP at any rate). He's actually more lively (and a lot nicer) than House is.

    There's nothing to prevent an ENTP from being a miserable depressed asshole. And no, there's nothing to prevent one from being a type 5 either -- one only needs to look at the ultimate ENTP scientist, Leonardo Da Vinci (who was a 5w4).

    *ahem* I haven't posted in here in a while, but I voted for INTJ and after learning more about MBTI and cognitive functions, I'm withdrawing the vote.

    I still see the Ni in him, but there is NO Te. He doesn't control people, he analyzes the hell out of them with Ti. And I definitely see Ne in him as well. I can see why some people say ENTP, but I simply think he's too in his head and a loner for that.

    INTP

    ENTP comes in second

    There is no way he has Te.

    So he neither seeks external data nor introspects to find ideas? That sounds contradictory to me. It appears to me that he DOES seek external input, like you said, but then he uses his own mode of thinking to come up with his own ideas. Sometimes I even wonder why he has a team (other than to fuck with them and boss them around) since a lot of the time he comes up with the solution completely on his own, out of nowhere (or out of having coincidentally seen something happen or noticed some detail.)

    No, that's because Foreman is very clearly an ESTJ.
