    IVY agrees with me?
    Actually I guess it's not that shocking... you just never (rarely) post in the MBTI sections as far as I'm aware.

    I don't really pay attention to where I'm posting except to move threads and stuff. And to make sure I'm not fluffering up a serious post with banter.

    I've been maintaining that House is an ENTP for ages. MacGuffin was the one who convinced me originally.

    BTW there's a thread with a poll about House's type. I didn't move any posts out of this thread because many of the ones discussing House also discussed other shows. And, of course, they are also on topic here- but the dedicated thread might interest you, Mondo et. al.

    Yeah I mentioned that, but Mondo and I didn't want to root around to find it. Thanks I knew if I fought it out here long enough you'd do it

    To be honest, why would you, who has experience with MacGuffin's posts, take anything he says seriously?

    What are you a J?

    MacGuffin jokes a lot, but he's actually smart. Imagine that... an intelligent person who's also occasionally goofy. Wait... isn't house like that? People in the hospital take him seriously.

    No, you just don't understand it. Why not? It works. Uh.... what?

    I repeat my question. Why are you posting?
    Yeah, I think I understand it better than you: the infighting is obviously an excuse-for-a-story, just one of the things that prevents this show from dissapearing right now, because it gives people a sense of a long-term plot. Just because a show casts a stupid jerk as the main character and them makes him right most of the time doesn't prove anything. Another thing I aboslutely hate about that show is the blame-the-victimism that develops as House verbally abuses each of his patients, and always has them ending up having some dirty secret. I think it's a lot of stupid things there- elistism, freudian thought as a self-fulfilling prophecy.. And if House were a real person he'd probably ruin a lot of lives.
    I really wonder what you think the types look like if you are so sure that House is an ENTP.
    Back to house. I suspect that it will be off the air within six months. There are more interesting shows in the same vien, and unless the directors/writers wildly reinvent house, people will get bored with him.

    he's not a J. it's just his Fi taking hold. i feel like gabe only posts when his values are in jeopardy.

    people love house, dude. honestly, you're the only person i've ever come across that dislikes the character. it's really the point of the whole show.

    and it's not like they make house out to be some god or something. he's a lonely miserable addict, for christ's sake. his unhappiness is all too apparent.

    anyways, he's definitely an ENTP. he comes up with wacky ass possibilities all the time, and he's OBSESSED with creating his own logical frameworks for things. his tertiary Fe directs some of his attention towards people, whom he tries to get a complete Ti picture of.

    by the way, i don't think the show is very well written or anything. it's not. it's actually kind of terrible. so "the infighting is obviously an excuse-for-a-story". i agree.

    Yeah, House is definitely not the Ni type. I would guess ENTP as well.

    I've proven time and again I know MBTI better than you inside and out. You can leave your narrow minded opinions out of this, unless you want my verbiage as well.

    ENTP fits. NTJ does not. Neither E nor I.

    So it doesn't have good plot. The show is not a medical show. It just isn't. It's about people's interactions. As far as blaming the victim... most people are guilty of something, and almost invariably, anything bad that happens to them can be traced back to something they did. Perhaps not as immediately and directly as depicted on this show, but they're conveying a message to be extrapolated.

    I'd really like to hear now, where you get this bull about elitism. Most of the other stuff... yeah I can kind of see it, but I can also kind of not. Show me the elitism.
