Observation is not just Se, actually a user of Se would analyze the immediate superficial, would not go deeper and depend on his mental palace, which is more Si Sherlock opens up several possibilities and discards them for probabilities and rationalizes which is the most useful, he solves cases without leaving home, he trusts much in what comes in the mind to be sensory. Just to prove that Sherlock does use deductive logic (instead of what your link claims), when he comes to a crime scene he has several ideas in mind, then looks to the facts to reduce them progressively (you can see it on the "A scandal in belgravia" episode ~6 mn) -sometimes he needs to do experiment to test his ideas. Actually Mycroft talks kind of a lot and is alway people telling what to do. Just because he is smart “herr durr must be INTP” liked by Boy1234556 and Girl123456, what a coincidence Your point being. Everything he does is to prove himself intellectually, the show makes it pretty obvious that he's interpersonally retarded and that when he's talking to someone he only ever tries to look smart, seriously, how can you say he only uses his intelligence for his work. He is not INTJ. I think it is generally typed as INTP simply because it hate boredom and be someone disorganized, and there many INTJ's unorganized who spend hours playing to kill the boredom.

L was not confused about his theories, especially for the Kira case.

But this doesnt mean anything. What is this idea out of nowhere that INTPs are indecisive guys who cant consider fact. They think that Sherlock is more like what.

There is no way he is Te-Fi. He is also known to hate "trivial knowledge" that doesn't pertain to his investigation (very anti-Ne). He's clearly an INTJ. thescienceofdeduction.

Typing everyone who's blunt, funny or confident as a 7 or 8 is cliché too. I can say four things about Sherlock. To be honest, it's too early to tell. Sherlock appears to be using Se when he exhibits hyper-vigilant traits during cases, is looking for new cases out of boredom, and makes impulsive decisions. He is not INTP. Dude is detail oriented and obsessed with concrete data. Sherlock radically filters his grip according to its applicability, to the point of having much knowledge of chemistry, but not knowing that the earth revolves around the sun.

Finally, the character has traits of INTP and INTJ. The author of the manga revealed that L constantly lies to himself. He is not INTJ. He is not ISTP. What Sherlock uses isnt the sensorial facet of observation. He is not INTP. Behavious doesn't imply functions. Ni-Te [INTJ] seek control and meaningful understanding of the world, so select and develop what it takes to be applied and used in their favor; unlike INTP who has chaotic[random] ideas and are free thinkers, INTJs are more rigid with yourself and tend to be more focused and precise ideas about what actually will happen, not what could happen, so tend to complement the detail being exposed and beyond in a straight tunnel until the final answer; INJ as a trace, the organization is fully focused on the mind, not in the external environment. Te>TiISTJ makes more sense than INTP and ISTP, but the method is different from Si, because it concentrates the mind in a targeted and fully deductive way. He is not INTP. Those lightning fast, intuitive logical connections he makes by simply looking at an object, things that allow him to "observe" patterns in things others can only merely "see," combined with the way he works through problems internally, should be huge red flags that he is INTP. ETPs come off as more expressive than EFPs. I have an IQ 173. He is not ESFP. You don't say Manecleis. I respect them cause I love the way they make fun of everyone (like sarcastic jokes), but over-confidence may be quite boring after a while.

So is he an INTJ or INTP. Just to say that S typings should be reconsidered, as he's for sure an intuitive. What about the case of "The Abominable Bride", I see no problem of Ni more than do. Actually a retarded ENFP. He is not INTJ. I'm sociopath. Knowledge that is not useful to him is. He is not ISTP. Finally, the character has traits of INTP and INTJ. To continue : L was in fact quite decisive, since the beginning he had the conviction that Light was Kira and pursued this lead since the end (others were even calling this obsession) - i made some post on L's page to explain further his personality if you want to check it.

But it makes me fall to the side P - an INTP well developed indeed. He is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. The way his Ni hits him later on and makes his thought process "click" makes me inclined to believe that it's tertiary. Sherlock cares more about people than he is comfortable admitting, and has had some very public meltdowns. He is INTJ, and you do not have arguments for it not to be INTJ or House. He is not ESFP.

I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not ISTP. Changing my vote for INTP. He is not INTP. He's the product of someone's imagination, not an actual human being that conforms to a certain function stack. He has a very quick brain, but Ne would he lose a long time in their conclusions.

He is clearly an INTP. Finding connections without losing too much time thinking about assumptions not as viable. But, Sherlock is an INTJ. Se will make connections, but not connections as deep as Ne (which is what they said basically). Ne collects data and possibilities from the external environment and he interprets them with Ti and stores them in his mindpalace. Not because the character is disorganized that it has no Te. He wants things done, is selective and addresses a sequential order and logistics to solve the case. If it proves to be unrealistic at times is by just having inferior Se, but when he really wants, he can be fully aware of the environment and select logically what he see without any coverage.

I'm an INFP with Te developed. He learns extremely quickly and catches on to concepts and ideals, but has no curiosity toward anything outside his very narrow field of interest (anything relating to criminology). MBTI isn't about capacities, its about tendencies (well the two can be correlated what's put people into bias). He's some sort of STP, nothing INTx about him you fools.

Ti is obvious but I don't know where did people see Ne. Sherlock sees the flaws and makes a deduction of how it happened. He is an INTP, and i join you on the fact that observation isnt in his natural tendencies. What makes me be in doubt about intuition is the Memory Palace which to me is quite Ne-Si / Si-Ne, finally I have not finished the series, and for me this Sherlock was created to show the image of a perfect detective with its sensory side and intuition quite developed. He thinks of possibility after possibility and distills with cool, hard logic (Ti) to reach a logical conclusion. Even being surprised If the normally active in it, it does not get much time in the world of planning and consequences, he risks, like challenges. He's a Ti-Dom with inferior Fe. The loop theory always seemed silly to me especially in cases like this. Sherlock seems also to have lower Fe has certain moments in the series that he knows he's being rude and insensitive and tries to comfort the person, just as a lower Fe does. I have an IQ 173. The approval and admiration of others seems to have an effect him. He is not INTJ. He is not ISTP. I have an IQ 173. He has Aspergers. I think Sherlok Holmes being a 5 is sort of a cliché. He is not ESFP. Maybe because. Jung also proposed that in a person one of the four functions above is dominant – either a function of perception or a function of judging.. He is not INTJ. Comparision is not a. He is not ISTP. The same post explains why he isnt an INTJ. ISTP too are only interested in the knowledge they can use, because being STs they aren't interested in knowledge for knowledge sake, but only in how it help in whatever skill they try to excel at. In general, his version of Sherlock has INTJ facade: tenacious, arrogant, crystal-clear vision. He is not ISTP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. consider* My bad, i'm a bit exhasted. I can say four things about Sherlock. I have an IQ 173. Sherlock in the books is ISTP. He is not ESFP. Sherlock demonstrates strong social and manipulative abilities [Se-Te] a INTx are very quiet and do not know manipulate and persuade equal ESxP's. he has no Ne that I can see. Not every smart person is a 5. INTP's obviously collect evidence, but pave the way for various theories and end up ignoring certain facts and sequential process. You may or may not agree but try to avoid "Ad hominem" arguments. He is not INTJ. Another INTJ that thinks every smart character is an INTJ. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Sherlock Holmes likely is!. Here you can explore of famous people and fictional characters.. He is not ESFP. There are also very Ni-Se ways when he talks about how he uses the art of deduction and visual reading. He is not ESFP. he's fully trust in your intuition. For me Sherlock is an INTJ or ENTJ with aspergerSorry guys, but ENTP. I can say four things about Sherlock. Then he runs off and tries to tells other about it so he can solve the case (Se. An INTP would not intuitive concentration internally, would be much more chaotic and would not quickly abandon an idea, the actual L is confused about his theories, forehead, but never feel comfortable about something, unlike Sherlock and Near to see what is the idea more efficient, makes a logical explanation, selective and sequential and hits - or think he hit. I find the idea of an individual who excels at using the 4th function pretty far-fetched. I have an IQ 173. Which is veryp typicel for bot Te-Doms and fits that he probaly is ESTJ. I'm sociopath. I have an IQ 173. Some of my typing (from a retard enfp). He "observes" (Se) and then "just knows" (Ni), doesn't ponder and comes out with possibilities like Ne, specially Ne-dom. But it makes me fall to the side P - an INTP well developed indeed. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He doesn't even show better skills at spotting things than other, what makes the difference is how he interprets it. He is not INTJ. He's an overconfident 5. His primary drive is to entertain and challenge / prove himself. But we all can argue about each interpretation from the series and movies. Others see that he is a Ti user, he follows theory over pragmatism. He is not ISTP. He is not ISTP. He is not ISTP. Also to discover the truth, that's Ti. I am gonna say INTJ but you could also make a good argument for INTP. The Si is there, a lot. I understand why they see it as you, but come on. He doesn't solve things for the police for a greater good or to achieve something, he does it all because he wants to figure it out on his own. Sherlock relies a lot on the mental knowledge, relies heavily on what comes to your mind. He's very observative, he takes note of everything visually (Ti/Se), and it usually takes him a while before the answer hits him and he comes to a realization (moments of visionary Ni). I'm an INFP with Te developed. Thats Ne aux, not Se aux. Yes, I agree that Sherlock is an INTJ. The mind palace has nothing to do with MBTI, it is just a memory trick. From what I saw so far, Sherlock wants to use his knowledge pear something he does not want to cover ideas he just wants to know the facts and (again) direct their conclusions to reach the end. To find out what your MBTI personality type is you need to complete the MBTI questionnaire and take part in a feedback session from a qualified MBTI practitioner.. This Sherlock's only goal is to solve interesting cases, not to prove his conclusion or get something bigger from that (like he said to Moriarty with the painting case) which is not consistent with Te as extraverted thinking users want to systemise, reach a common goal through showing to others evidence of their work that they can themselves get. He is not INTJ. Which is against everything TI stands for. All he wants is solving cases. "To qiet to be an INTJ". He is not ISTP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not ESFP. Si is another thing since he has really good memory/sensory recall, but regardless. I can say four things about Sherlock. There is something vaguely 8w7 about this, but I don't think he's out there trying to dominate the world. He is not ESFP. Whenever on a case, he is tireless, intensely aware of his immediate environment down to the smallest cat hair on a person’s leg, and reckless. Brought to you by a Snarky INTP. Sherlock demonstrates strong social and manipulative abilities [Se-Te] a INTx are very quiet and do not know manipulate and persuade equal ESxP's. when I said "should" I mean "more likely". There are more induction than deduction. Not because it is natural observer he'll only see what's there, Ti in a ISTP is great for analyzing details and patterns, and it only learns what it would be useful for your work, nothing to cover his knowledge. Go fuck yourself. I'm sociopath. And Moriarty is an ENTP. @TheMemphis, I think people type him as ISTP due to something resembling the Ti-Ni loop theory despite showing all intuition and no sensing. He is not ISTP. An INTJ with mature Se will pay attention when he needs to, but being hyper aware like Sherlock. It is not wise, he does things risks without thinking of the consequences of his actions, his plans is not something complex and phenomenal are only small strategies. An INTJ would probably find impossible and would want facts and conclude that the boy was suffering from a trauma. do we need special requirements to be certain types now. I understand ISTP and INTJ and cases can be made for both but to me INTP fits the best. ISTP makes more sense than INTP or INTJ because it's less self-contradictory. The weaker Si helps him to build his mindpalace based on past ideas and deductions. He's an Se user. That said I usually think ESTPs are the smartest one. So its not "observation = Se", its "being observative in his daily behavior = Se" which is not the case with Sherlock at all. I'm sociopath. Ni-Te is thus Ti-Ne is comprehensive, indecisive, open mind and regardless of how you use stored knowledge. He is not INTP. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. I have an IQ 173. What you meant to say is no way is Sherlock an S. This is something that’s relatively unique to Ni users –especially Ni dominants. Finally, if you havent seen it, you should watch the latest episode "The Abominable Bride", where he basically imagined an entire case just to be sure that Moriarty was truely dead (yet he saw him die in front of his eyes), which shows that he isn't someone who only trust the facts and has a huge logical job behind to considerate their relevance. (Nothing a developed You can not solve. He's not out there to have fun. I can say four things about Sherlock. It is VERY helpful in small details, he usually sees what is happening around you and see that there on the couch that is a few meters away is the cats, all in a few seconds. He came to the conclusion that Light was Kira very quickly in the first few episodes, but I understand what you mean. I'm sociopath. But I've found out that lots of interresting characters are actually INTJ. Like any fictional character he will end up somewhere on the spectrum, but that's where it should end. When he was younger he seemed like an INTP poster child. (Nothing a developed You can not solve. He is selective, objective, arrogant with a concentreted intuition. I just go to a website where it says that Sherlock is INTJ: https://mbtifiction. I have an IQ 173. And I think the character has more Fi than Fe. I have an IQ 173. I have an IQ 173. Why does everyone think he's an INTP. Ni-Te-SeGuys, he is the embodiment of Mastermind. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Sherlock, BBC characters list.. ISTPs perhaps are the best at analysing the world around them and using practical deductive logic. Its just the trading mark of Sherlock Homes, in every adaptation of himself his method is about observation. In the case of Sherlock, he wants to apply what they learned individually and not delve into the introspectiveness and rationalize all he's feel. No INTJ would say he doesnt need to bring evidence once the case is solved, its just the perfect contrary of Te. That's why the battle is between INTP an INTJ. Moriarty INTJ (Sorry). I can say four things about Sherlock. But he still creates a lot of theoris that he discards (When you discard the impossible whatever remains must be the truth). I think he's trying to solve the puzzle and prove that he can solve anything he puts his mind to. He is not ESFP. He is not ESFP. He is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. It's also worth noting that he thinks wayyyy too deep when he goes over his cases in his mind, much deeper than an Se probably would. The method of Mind Palace is practically the main basis that it supports, where the information he selected as important are stored to be used in the world. There's great arguments to be made for both INTP and ISTP, even INTJ, I'd say that because of his intelligence he would have extremely great control over all the functions (except for the feeling functions, obviously). He is not INTJ. Te definitely. I'm sociopath. He is not INTJ. He even asks Watson or Lestrade to generates ideas that he can check. Sherlock is not very interested in that; the organization is in the mind, not the environment like your brother; It is a deductive, inductive, immediate, non-inductive, immediate, manual. I can say four things about Sherlock. On a superficial level he says he wants to solve puzzles because he "gets bored" but he's obviously very adamant on appearing smart, shooting a hole in a wall won't make him a 7. If he's so much of an achiever or pure thrill seeker, why does he shy away from public attention or even national news coverage. Where I'm getting at is that Sherlock is not customary to leave your options open, he enjoys internal debate, but he wants to get a place and does not use many possibilities for this are more intuitive facts directed with What will happen no what could happen. Not to mention Doyles (the author) is (was. his line that he doesn't know that the earth revolves around the sun, because he only keeps stuff in his head that is useful for him in his work, which is particularly unlike type 5. In the history of The Hounds of Baskerville an INTP to hear about the alleged dog would have to accept the fact that there is actually a huge mutant dog, but would look for evidence. Guys, he is the embodiment of Mastermind. com/2014/11/09/why-sherlock-isnt-an-intp/The Sherlock deductions are very assertive and well-aimed to be an INTP. my dudie you made alt accounts to upvote yourself instead of providing an argument, then used someone elses work and pawned it off as your own when I asked you to give an explanation, if you're too lazy to explain where you stand or think for yourself then don't comment point taken He literally has a map of London in his mind Gonna quote myself from other entry:. Accept me as your Lord. The plan he reveals to Watson in season 3 of how he faked his death is very Ne. not necessarily in the middle, but he is an INTJ when best to be so and an INTP when best to be so. Sherlock is delighted when John praises his skills, and baffled and unsettled when his friend is upset with him. I'm sociopath. Rust in my view is an INTP learning to be objective, but also spends a lot of time questioning the very idea and seeking more theories to be able to go deep; While Sherlock is so arrogant that you fully trust your intuition. I have an IQ 173. All the explanations about Sherlock being INTP or INTJ work nicely for ISTP as a whole. I remember (in the books) when Watson asks him how did he know that a random guy on the street was from the Marine, he answered that it's much easier for him to see and just "know" it than to explain the process of it. And Mello ESTP. He's the ultimate realist and doesn't bother indulging other people's ideas. This can also be Ni. He doesn't use Ne or Te, his process is clearly all Ti/Se based with Ni insights. @TheMemphis But as has been said, it is not leaving much possibilities open, he dismisses, something that is not very common among INTP's because, like it or not, the cycle will repeat itself. I'm sociopath. I can say four things about Sherlock. I'm sociopath. He is not INTP. The way Sherlock notes quickly and already has an accurate intuitive response is more Ni than Ne. The guy who talks to his chair during an entire month before someone ( Lestrade) tells him that Watson is no longer there and has left, an ISTP and not an INTP. He just wants to learn enough to come kicking the door and giving slap in the face. I mean he does pretty much whatever's on the top of his mind like writing random blogs on how to recognize different forms of tobacco simply because it's interesting to him or constantly looking for patterns and inconsistencies to critique but yeah none of that's Ne whatsoever he's jumpy about it so he's Se. Please, compare Sherlock with Moriarty and shut up. Extroverted Sensing (Se): Sherlock can’t stand to be doing nothing; he is hyperactive, impulsive, thrill-seeking, and over-indulging in addictive stimulants. So I think I'll have to go with INTP then. He is not ESFP. He also struggles to believe in things that cannot be proven, or that are mystical in nature – like his inability to accept that the “glowing Hound” could be real. He evens mock them. An INTP at least should be interested to talk about the recent scientific discovery (Copernicus's laws) at that time, as watson has mentioned (since Watson is a known ISFJ , so Ne user, albeit inferior one) in stead of flatout denying the interests in it completely, that part is very Ne-like about him for me. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. Which are stereotypical enneatype 5 anxieties and motivations. He has the charm to win over people and manipulate them, but also fails to comprehend his own intense feelings. He is not ISTP. I think that the actual originative function (as we usually understand creativity) is Fi. It does not use all the possibilities in his favor, he knows, he is bound for facts to create intuitive analysis. In objectivism, Sherlock is really more like the side INTJ. You think an INTP rule out possibilities. He is not INTP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He does not use Ti at all. Fuck you, you want it to be an INTJ just because he's smart, but in fact it is a super INTP like me. Yet they continue to mention L as a perfect example of an INTP without mentioning this time that during all the storyline L pursued thoroughly one hypothesis : Light is Kira. He is not ESFP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I can say three things about Sherlock. I think that's very INTP in fact, not knowing the most obvious but having particular knowledge about something else. Sherlock wants things done, Sherlock is decisive and arrogant is not someone easy to get along like the INTP's. As far as I can tell, they don't stop their investigations when they have found every possible answer they can come up with. Once the problem is solved, Sherlock Holmes has done with it and passes to something else. The alleged deductions it has to be according to actual and potential events. He relies on hunches that are based on obersavtions, yes but that is something different than the logic and number based deudction of an INTP. It is clearly more inductive than deductive, he wants facts and then sequentially to the final path, knowing select what is important and what is not. Bein "show-off" is probably instinct related. A Te would also be more organised, which is not the case if you look at his flat. He is not INTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. An INTJ with inferior function Se very well treined. @TheMemphis, Is not only the enneagrama, his mind works as something objective, selective, sequential with an unerring intuition focused on what will happen; it rarely is in doubt about something like L does. He was more theory oriented, while our sherlock is more adventure oriented. I have an IQ 173. Thank you for the explanation. He has a childish need for approval, wants everyone to acknowledge his intellect and gets on people's nerves to make them feel stupid when they don't, maybe that's a 7 or 8-like trait but he still only does it to look smart and competent which is what most (if not all) of his motivations stem from, not being in control, avoiding weakness or deprivation or looking for entertainment. Maybe I don't remeber it correctly but - at least in the series with Benedict Cumberbatch - doesn't he mainly solve puzzles to entertain and challenge himself because he gets bored otherwise.
