    Btw, Leonardo Da Vinci was the classic renaissance man. ENTP 7w8. Michelangelo Buonarroti was the 5w4.

    So, you show to us all that you don't master the most basic notions of the Enneagram, and how much your knowledge and understanding of that model is poor and superficial. Thank you.

    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.
    Very inconsistent. Particularly since House covers up his stress through anger (1), which is consistent with being a Seven.

    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)
    ENTPs bully. A lot. It's usually unintentional and unconscious, though. House doesn't bully to enforce dominance over people; he does it to get a rise out of them, or because he's impatient with them. To him, that's not bullying - it's playing, or lashing out.

    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)
    The reason it's tricky to type him is because if you depend on type descriptions, it's all messed up - as it should be, because House is one seriously depressed individual. That's why you have to go to functions. Best example of this is how he comes up with diagnoses - it's something in the external environment that symbolically signals it, leading to a logical conclusion.

    No. No he doesn't. He gathers his team round and then goes, "the patient has pooped a lung. Ideas?" He needs feedback to function, to the point that when he found himself teamless, he had to bounce ideas off the janitor. His episode-ending epiphanies are likewise always triggered, without exception, by something that draws parallels to the solutions triggering his brain gears -- never independently.

    No, that's because Foreman is very clearly an ESTJ.
    Show me the Si. Not that it matters, my point is that that's Te, as opposed to House's crazy awesome Ti.

    What? Interaction styles are Berens'.
    They're based on Keirsey's temperaments. And they're still bogus -- functions are mindsets rather than skillets, and have no real reason to correspond to a given interaction style.

    I agree he isn't a Te type, but that isn't Te. Te doesn't seek control, it seeks competence (Ti seeks consistency, by contrast).

    As it has ever been said, Foreman also oppose Si to House's crasy awesome Ne, opposing often common sense, a more factual and basically scientist approach and the use of the Ockam's Razor.

    Didn't we establish House isn't an Ni type?
