Gregory House MD



Dominant function: Introverted intuition, Ni

House’s dominant function is introverted, meaning he takes a lot of time perceiving in his own ways and coming to his own conclusions. He is the doctor who doesn’t follow the rules of book, preferring to work in a very distinctive way. He likes to be unconventional and he is quite withdrawn from the world. House has very keen perceptions about how the world works, making a lot of broad and insightful comments on the world, that go beyond medicine, like, for example, ‘’Everybody lies’’ or ‘’It’s never lupus’’ or ‘’The first diagnose is always wrong’’. On the other hand, Doctor House has huge success in his diagnoses because he can put together contradictory and disperse evidence, forming an insight that is correct.

Auxiliary function: Extroverted thinking, Te

House has a tendency to use people around him as guiders to his own logic, making him using extroverted thinking. He craves for arguments between the people around him, which helps him think in his own way. He likes to have people who contradict him, in order to come to his correct diagnosis. He is an analyzer and makes his decisions based on logic and concrete facts, making him competency-driven. He also makes detailed plans and he quick witted.

Tertiary function: Introverted feeling, Fi

This function has a little influence on House. It’s clear that House has a strong code of personal values, like his decision of never meeting his patients, preferring to work isolated, etc. He tends to put his feelings aside to make the job done. He doesn’t extrovert his feeling function, meaning: he doesn’t care for social niceties and for being pleasant to others, usually saying what goes to his mind, which usually makes him troubles.

Inferior function: Extroverted sensing, Se

House lives in the present moment. He isn’t particularly nostalgic; neither has he used his experience in order to make his leaps in his thinking process. He focuses on data on the present moment, pulling out contradictory evidence in order to come to his own truth. House, on the other hand, has a tendency to indulge in his pleasures and sensing side, abusing of alcohol, drugs (to cope with the physical pain he is stuck in) and sensual pleasure.


House Works so he can join the pieces of the puzzle. He isn’t worried about fame or prestige, or even power. He likes to be in his mind, analyzing and dissecting information via intuition and he also isn’t very caring in his nature.

Historical MBTI Figures

Because I’m a history major, I thought it would be fun to put together real world examples of every type.  All of these figures are awesome, just like all of the types are awesome.  I apologize that the list is very Western-centric; my focus is American history so I probably don’t know as much about other global figures as I should, but I would love to hear any suggestions people have!! I also tried to choose people who would be fairly recognizable.  Enjoy!
