    I haven't watched much of the show, but isn't Christina Yang very aggressive and domineering, for an INTP female? Perhaps if I watched more of the show, I'd see more of her motivations, but as far as behavior goes I really disliked her typical operating style.

    I don't know, Jennifer. You would know better than I. I have watched about a dozen episodes.
    I don't really know INTP females well.

    She doesn't talk much. She's very blunt. She's focused on her job.
    She could be an INTJ, I suppose.

    She's an INTJ. Very goal oriented. Not very moral or idealistic (inferior Fi?). Her lack of tact could point to INTP, but otherwise, I think she's a strong case for exaggerated INTJ. Certainly, if she were a male character I would definitely think so.

    I haven't watched the show obsessively either though...

    Her whole relationship with Burke was a power struggle thing. Wonder what type he was. ENFJ?

    *Also, she's really messy at home, but I'm pretty sure we're no longer using that for P vs. J analysis.

    I'd say study Liz Lemon on 30 Rock. I'm an INTP woman, and I'm constantly relating to her, more so than any other character I've ever seen on tv. There's probably a good chance Tina Fey herself is INTP.

    I don't think Dorothy Zbornak was an E. They made a point of talking about how she never went out, and always would rather stay home and read. I'd say INTJ.

    I don't think Oh's character is an INTP. NT, probably, but she rubs me the wrong way.

    I think Juno could be an INTP.

    I'm tending towards Juno being an E now actually... ENTP or ESTP. She's not that internalized.

    what about that new character on house? the one he calls "crazy bitch". she's some sort of NTJ. probably INTJ.

    Isn't that in the MBTI description somewhere?

    Because writers can't get a "handle" on them?

    You know? I think you're right about that.

    Yes, Seanan is correct, writers not getting a handle on the personality.

    Read the INTP profile, INTP wonderfully complex people, rational but not cold. To create them as robotic and cold with their intimates would be to totally miss their essence. If there are not more INTP in fiction there should be. A real chance to create a character with intriquing depth.
