Whenever he is proved wrong, he immediately draws another conclusion.
    It actually takes a monumental effort to get House to see he could be wrong about something -- particularly something related to his general misanthropy. He simply cannot accept the idea people could possibly be decent, because if people are all miserable assholes, it makes his own misery tolerable. In other words, he holds on to certain viewpoints not because they make sense, but because they make him feel better. That's Fi to the core.

    Sherlock Holmes: INTJ
    Hercule Poirot: ISTJ
    Jane Marple: INFJ
    Auguste Dupin: INTJ


    I'll also add here that Special Agent Dale Cooper is INTJ.

    Oh, and so is FBI Agent Clarice Starling.

    I took a Detective fiction class in college...Holmes and Poirot are both loosely based upon Dupin...hence their IxTJ similarity. Poirot is just a lot more Si - more observant and obsessive, less bizarre and innovative - and he's very much a part "The System" whereas Dupin and Holmes decidedly were not.

    I read that Poirot was primarily inspired by Holmes.

    Also, I disagree with Holmes being a J. After analysing him in an earlier thread, I think he is an INTP who has found his niche.

    There was Dupin...then Holmes...then Poirot. The subsequent two were inspired by Poe's original invention of the conceited, eccentric, brilliant detective.

    Who am I forgetting?

    I'm sure I've forgotten a lot of detectives.
