House - Thoughts on a TV Show

  1. 1. House
  2. 2. House/Hugh Laurie Newtonian!!!!! (Experimental method is sacred!!!!!!!) Acknowledge, even revel in what we don’t know Crystalline clarity of reasoning Intuitive leaps (often wrong, but acknowledges that error is the key success driver—e.g., Brilliant Failed experiments) Breathtaking speed! (Fast tries. “Fastest ‘O.O.D.A. Loops’ win”—John Boyd) Action! Action! Action! Test! Test! Test! Failures acknowledged instantly (as important as success; next try starts immediately without fanfare) Carefully controlled experimentation-Hypothesis tests (e.g., stop all drugs, add back one at a time) Problem-centric, not patient-centric (Life = Puzzle-solving) In a (life or death) rush, yet orderly about the scientific process Aggressive risk taking (What’s the alternative?) (Can appear reckless to others) Exudes inspiring confidence (especially when the success odds are low) Sky high staff standards Doesn’t suffer fools lightly (especially bosses) Hates ... routine/paperwork/problems that don’t enhance his understanding Students as scientific peers (but demands loyalty) Constant, impromptu mini-Brainstorm sessions (Thinking = Cool) Calm though life and death at stake (must view-measure results of experiments as cleanly as possible) Egocentric (but allow data to sway—or reverse—opinion) Impatient! Tenacious! Relentless! Curious! Obsessed! (rotten at “work-life balance”)
