Sherlock Holmes Myers-Brigs type - MBTI, enneagram and personality type info
Sherlock is obviously an antisocial ESFP that has its shadow INTJ quite exposed. Sherlock demonstrates strong social and manipulative abilities [Se-Te] a INTx are very quiet and do not know manipulate and persuade equal ESxP's. I can say four things about Sherlock. INTP is a passive type of information. Te definitely. It uses Ni and Te for this. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. Sherlock is INTJ. It is organized mentally and selects everything that is important to him and acts sequentially to the goal and quickly discards what is not important to the work, there is no defocus and comprehensiveness in solving something, like all Ti user have. Ni-Te is thus Ti-Ne is comprehensive, indecisive, open mind and regardless of how you use stored knowledge. He does not care much about the mess and also liked to discuss ideas with a skeleton John to appear. The plan he reveals to Watson in season 3 of how he faked his death is very Ne. He is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. He is not ESFP. Sherlock use obvius Ni-Se than Ne-Si, and is objective not subjectiveHe's much more closure to INTJ than to INTP tough. I can say four things about Sherlock. 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. when will this hell site return to normalI think the majority voted for INTP the simple stereotype of ''lonely man who is addicted to puzzles and very disorganized. (Nothing a developed You can not solve. From the little I know about him he's the same kind of annoying know-it-all INTP as Dr. Every person’s preference can be found on a spectrum, so just choose the letter you identify with most.. INTJs are interested in ideas and theories when observing the world.. This Sherlock Holmes is an INTP, there is no doubt about it. He is not INTP. The fact that he does not care about any of the aftermath of the cases he resolves is also very INTPish. Dude is detail oriented and obsessed with concrete data. (Though I think INTP's may end up being so, since I heard that many lose interest in various issues they consider boring and only seek development in which they are constantly challenged. Sherlock doesn't really have any of these weaknesses characteristic of his type, because he is an ideal form. I'm sociopath. At best I think it would be anti-Te. Typing everyone who's blunt, funny or confident as a 7 or 8 is cliché too. 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). Free in-depth and practical information on the 16 personality types, including careers and relationships.. Also, all of his findings are described and depicted in a very logical way, giving all the details of the reasoning from point A to Z without many leaps (its basically when he starts speaking quickly to enumerate every piece of the puzzle). He is not ISTP. The way his Ni hits him later on and makes his thought process "click" makes me inclined to believe that it's tertiary. But the character is certainly introspective, but not like Ti, but as Ni, because he believes in all their guesses and deductions that are well-aimed, thus rewriting correctly virtually EVERYTHING he's see - Ni-Te-Se, no. The 11th Doctor seems ENTP, his charm is the expressive kind ETPs can have. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not ISTP. He is not INTJ. He is an INTP, and i join you on the fact that observation isnt in his natural tendencies. I have an IQ 173. I'm sociopath. He does not rule out possibility without exploring them, while an INTJ wouldn't bother to do it so much. Whenever he is not on a case, he is accumulating knowledge to serve his detecting abilities and/or engaging in physical activities such as spearing pigs, beating corpses, etc. "To qiet to be an INTJ". 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. So its not "observation = Se", its "being observative in his daily behavior = Se" which is not the case with Sherlock at all. Mind palace = Si. Behavious doesn't imply functions. For me I'm INFJ and am Ni gift, I know exactly how to anticipate and set behavioral tendencies. I have an IQ 173. Ne dom with auxiliary Ti. 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. Te's are well these tuscan thinkers, who know little and force their application in several cases. Sherlock relies a lot on the mental knowledge, relies heavily on what comes to your mind. Holmes is a very unique character but the reason he's most frequently typed as INTP is his thinking process is closest to Ti-Ne. I have an IQ 173. I can say three things about Sherlock. He is not ISTP. Isabel Briggs Myers, a researcher and practitioner of Jung’s theory, proposed to see the judging-perceiving relationship as a fourth dichotomy influencing personality type.. I can say four things about Sherlock. I have an IQ 173. He's a Ti-Dom with inferior Fe. He does not care much about the mess and also liked to discuss ideas with a skeleton John to appear. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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. He doesn't even show better skills at spotting things than other, what makes the difference is how he interprets it. Extroverted Sensing (Se): Sherlock can’t stand to be doing nothing; he is hyperactive, impulsive, thrill-seeking, and over-indulging in addictive stimulants. The weaker Si helps him to build his mindpalace based on past ideas and deductions. All you can really determine are his preferences, and solely based on his preferences he would be an INTP. He is a ISTP with Ni very well treined. As far as I can tell, they don't stop their investigations when they have found every possible answer they can come up with. He is not INTP. Quite possibly a 531 tritype. He is not INTP. He even asks Watson or Lestrade to generates ideas that he can check. Sherlock acts, his thought process is visible. My love is boundless, even for a racist ESFP Nazi like you. Ni-Te works with more induction than deduction equal Sherlock. So its not "observation = Se", its "being observative in his daily behavior = Se" which is not the case with Sherlock at all. 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. L had their deductions, and actually hit, but it was not focused as Near, a clear example of INTJ. Both INTx's use both inductive and deductive reasoning. stop wasting time on alt accounts trying to seem right with no effort and explain yourself He is quiet disorganised and chaotic which seems like a P type Agreed with Cena. But it makes me fall to the side P - an INTP well developed indeed. An INTP would not be able to ignore possibilities or the worst day of his life. has left the house* (for my first post)Just adding the parallel between him and Moriarty. I don't have a clear idea on his type, but I just want to shoot down the "possibility" argument because it's wrong. He has the classic maniac excitement of Ne users. I can say four things about Sherlock. I thought it was INTP, but I must agree that the character is quite observer facts in the here and now, and can draw logical conclusions of the present moment without thinking of many possibilities, so much so that it goes on quite unpredictable. Arguments to INTP are few convincing. He delts them. ) ESTP, so it's only logical. com/blog/2013/04/why-te-is-inductive-and-ti-is-deductive/. He prefers to live in the moment, playing the violin, snorting cocaine and test your observation skills; if by chance take it from him, he is clearly sad and depressed [Fi]. I wonder why people type Robert Downey's Sherlock as ENTP while he does absolutely the same thing, first observe carefully and then put a course of action according to it. But he still creates a lot of theoris that he discards (When you discard the impossible whatever remains must be the truth). He "observes" (Se) and then "just knows" (Ni), doesn't ponder and comes out with possibilities like Ne, specially Ne-dom. Mycroft is not INTJ, is ESTJ with Ne developed. He is not INTP. 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. 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 know a guy who has Asperger and is ENTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He's clearly an INTJ. He is not INTJ. He's the ultimate realist and doesn't bother indulging other people's ideas. He is not ISTP. He is not ISTP. I do not know if an INTP with Si developed would be so, but I think he is a ISTP Ni developed. 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. They think that Sherlock is more like what. Ne and Fi is obviousHenzy. 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. There are also very Ni-Se ways when he talks about how he uses the art of deduction and visual reading. I'm sociopath. He is not ISTP. mental palace seems to be Ti-Si, always likes to store data inside the palace and when he is in trouble he calls connections with details of the past, analyzing every detail to find the solution, all internal way a computer. Sherlock is far from being xNTP, really. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not ISTP. He is not INTJ. And I think the character has more Fi than Fe. He is not ESFP. Okay, maybe not anti-Ne. Actually Mycroft talks kind of a lot and is alway people telling what to do. I didn't believe it at first, but I'm sure he's a Ti user of some sort. 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:. It is said in the show. He does not use Ti at all. He is not indecise and chaotic intuition like INTPsINTJ. v=OVXt8jBAGkc. 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. This guy is literally all about sensory details, I don't see how people don't see "sensor" in him. He is very Ni-Te than Ti-Ne. I can say four things about Sherlock. The argument that Sherlock is decisive is rather generic, because IxxP's when they're doing something that really matters can become quite decisive and objectives. I'm sociopath. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I have an IQ 173. He prefers to live in the moment, playing the violin, snorting cocaine and test your observation skills; if by chance take it from him, he is clearly sad and depressed [Fi]. All the explanations about Sherlock being INTP or INTJ work nicely for ISTP as a whole. I think it's probably because Benedict himself is an infj. I can say the same with the "possibilities" argument they use for arguing against Ne. I'm an INFP with Te developed. Fuck you, you want it to be an INTJ just because he's smart, but in fact it is a super INTP like me. Moriarty INTJ (Sorry). He is not INTJ. Introvert in MBTU just means that the dom function is focused in the subjective instead of the objective. I can say four things about Sherlock. Ni-Te-SeGuys, he is the embodiment of Mastermind. Like Light Yagami from Death Note. He is not INTP. The site has some interesting arguments, however, I disagree in part. He is not ESFP. I'm sociopath. He is not ESFP. MBTI isn't about capacities, its about tendencies (well the two can be correlated what's put people into bias). They are still denying. I have an IQ 173. Mycroft is forever worried about his propensity to “care more than he should. He is not ISTP. He also looks for something like a gap between what is presented instead of looking at what is presented in the environment, like a white line in the tan wrist, a missing ring, etc. The deceptive thing with Sherlock is how fast it happens: he's a genius after all. I wouldn't call the fact taht he didn't know about some basic knowledge about the earth (I don't remmeber what it was) anti Ne. Which is veryp typicel for bot Te-Doms and fits that he probaly is ESTJ. consider* My bad, i'm a bit exhasted. An INTJ with inferior function Se very well treined. Finally, the character has traits of INTP and INTJ. He is not ESFP. 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. I have an IQ 173. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I understand why they see it as you, but come on. 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. ETPs come off as more expressive than EFPs. I think we shouldnt be fooled by the need of results of his job and take it for Ni. He is not ISTP. He was more theory oriented, while our sherlock is more adventure oriented. What you meant to say is no way is Sherlock an S. But, Sherlock is an INTJ. He is not INTP. He is not INTP. I'm sociopath. I have an IQ 173. The loop theory always seemed silly to me especially in cases like this. I can say four things about Sherlock. ” plagiarism is not cool my dude It was mostly to make the point, but thanks for linking it hopefully it spreads the message. That is such an Ni thing, coupling with powerful Se of course. I have an IQ 173. Impossible type, so. I have an IQ 173. I'm sociopath. he has no Ne that I can see. He is unpredictable, explosive in his unreliable temper, highly emotionally expressive whenever on a case, and passionate. I got a 7w8 or 8w7 impression. 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. He is not INTP. He is not INTP. And Moriarty is an ENTP. That said I usually think ESTPs are the smartest one. He is not ISTP. com/2014/11/09/why-sherlock-isnt-an-intp/. He is not INTJ. But I've found out that lots of interresting characters are actually INTJ. He is not ISTP. Plus, in my own experiene, I find certain enneagrams (8, 7, 2) to be extraverted and others (5, 1, 4) to be introverted. com/2014/11/09/why-sherlock-isnt-an-intp/The Sherlock deductions are very assertive and well-aimed to be an INTP. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. Please, compare Sherlock with Moriarty and shut up. You may or may not agree but try to avoid "Ad hominem" arguments. He is not INTP. I'm sociopath. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not INTP. He is not ISTP. He is not INTP. Again, Ni-Te-Se. But it makes me fall to the side P - an INTP well developed indeed. He is not INTJ. Knowledge that is not useful to him is. Ne goes beyond what is there, it's seeing patterns, connecting dots. He is a well-trained intp I don't know. You don't say Manecleis. ISTP makes more sense than INTP or INTJ because it's less self-contradictory. He is not ISTP. The INTJ vote is just laughable, he doesnt share any point with this type. So I think I'll have to go with INTP then. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not indecise and chaotic intuition like INTPsI doubt that you have arguments to INTJ after reading this:: https://mbtifiction. I have an IQ 173. I set out my arguments on the site I mentioned up there, it would be interesting you also expose their arguments to the author read, because the author appears to be serious and it would be interesting to see how reprimand the debate (if if you have one) to try to reach a decisive conclusion about the kind of character. I'm an INFP with Te developed. The author of the manga revealed that L constantly lies to himself.
. He is not INTJ. The problem with typing Sherlock is the fine line between Si and Se. I've been to a lot of INTJ forums and it's so common to read this. I have an IQ 173. In objectivism, Sherlock is really more like the side INTJ. I can say three things about Sherlock. Ti are always changing ideas as they analyze things, it's the nature of Ti. He is not ISTP. I'm sociopath. Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding Sherlock Holmes Myers-Briggs and personality type!. I think Sherlok Holmes being a 5 is sort of a cliché. Thank you for the explanation. He is not INTP. He is not ISTP. Shoot the wall, play the violin, get on drugs, have a swordfight. He is not ISTP. He is not ESFP. I can say four things about Sherlock. But I don't think an INTP will have that limited range of knowledge. It is not INTP. He's an intellectual show-off in every way, you could say that proving his intelligence is his main drive and his puzzles are the means by which he does it, and how do you see him "interacting with the world" in any other way than by solving a case. He is not ISTP. Yes, I agree that Sherlock is an INTJ. 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. The people who think Sherlock is S crack me up. If Sherlock handle only cases that matters is because it is clearly a mentally superior person who values what they do and only takes something really think it worth spending your time, not because he is a very Ne user. Thinking – Feeling, represents how a person processes information. Thinking means that a person makes a decision mainly through logic.. 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. I am gonna say INTJ but you could also make a good argument for INTP. 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). I have an IQ 173. There's no way he's not intuitive. He's some sort of STP, nothing INTx about him you fools. What is this idea out of nowhere that INTPs are indecisive guys who cant consider fact. The Si is there, a lot. Extroverted Feeling (Fe): He is an attention-seeking show-off, who is happiest when everyone admits that he is the smartest person in the room. The concrete that you speak is already being dominated by these ideas beyond the present. He is not INTP. ISTP not have the patience to fully understand everything related. All he wants is solving cases. I have an IQ 173. I'm sociopath. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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. 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. Mycroft he is a better example of an INTJ than Sherlock is. Brought to you by a Snarky INTP. He is not ESFP. People think Ne is creativity just to simplify, but it is a pattern gathering function. I'm sociopath. He is not INTJ. He has a very quick brain, but Ne would he lose a long time in their conclusions. INTJ's with asperger syndrome can be quite thorough and observers. Guys, he is the embodiment of Mastermind. His motivations are similar to that of the ENTP House, except I don't see much Ne in Sherlock. Accept me as your Lord. 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 is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. He has the charm to win over people and manipulate them, but also fails to comprehend his own intense feelings. The way Sherlock notes quickly and already has an accurate intuitive response is more Ni than Ne. He is selective, objective, arrogant with a concentreted intuition. Too accurate for being an INTJ. You don't say Manecleis. He is not INTJ. I'm sociopath. Sherlock is more induction than deduction. He's an Se user. He is not INTJ. 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. He isn't INTJ, nor is House, nor are you. Irene Adler ENTJ. I'm sociopath. Also who the fuck do you think you are Teru asking me to explain myself. 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'm sociopath. Ti is more Deduction and Te is more Induction: http://www. He came to the conclusion that Light was Kira very quickly in the first few episodes, but I understand what you mean. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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 is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. He observes what's beyond what is present. He is not ISTP. So even if the inductive/deductive association was relevant, it wouldnt makes him an INTJ, because he isnt. I have an IQ 173. Holmes is an unpredictable mess of a person. He keeps all his, memories, facts, and sensory details in it. 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. In general, his version of Sherlock has INTJ facade: tenacious, arrogant, crystal-clear vision. I can say three things about Sherlock. But he can excuse because all he says is the truth (a Ti manifestation). 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. The mind palace has nothing to do with MBTI, it is just a memory trick. What is the best option for the MBTI type of Sherlock Holmes? What about enneagram and other personality types?. Sherlock sees the flaws and makes a deduction of how it happened. He wants things done, is selective and addresses a sequential order and logistics to solve the case. He is too bored from reality to be a sensor. Even if that gets him into trouble. com/@daniellekkincaid/the-sherlock-holmes-conundrum-or-the-difference-between-deductive-and-inductive-reasoning-ec1eb2686112#. He delts them. He likes to share and explore possibilities - it seems Ne, no. I have an IQ 173. I'm sociopath. He is not INTP. Which is against everything TI stands for. Just to say that S typings should be reconsidered, as he's for sure an intuitive. Sherlock is delighted when John praises his skills, and baffled and unsettled when his friend is upset with him. I can say four things about Sherlock. Ti is silent, subjective logic that keeps to itself.
. INTJ, INTJ, INTJ. I can say four things about Sherlock. I just go to a website where it says that Sherlock is INTJ: https://mbtifiction. He is not ESFP. I'm sociopath. He also has a pretty confident and blunt personality. not necessarily in the middle, but he is an INTJ when best to be so and an INTP when best to be so. It is not enough for him to accept that a thing has happened; he must comprehend it on an intellectual level as well. Sherlock is far more interested in the intellectual side of sleuthing than in its financial benefits; he is so fast in sorting through information and discarding that which seems illogical that he casts aside theories that do not fit as soon as he has them. 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. Believe me, I hate it when people that are INTJ, pretend to be INTJ or are just INTJ fanboys type an character as INTJ because "every genius is an INTJ" I get mad as fuck. 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. 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. The approval and admiration of others seems to have an effect him. ISTP obviously. Or even sometimes that doen't even fit the superficial stereotype they normally type after, like Levi from Attack on Titan. He is not ESFP. 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. Comparission is not an accurate way to type characters. 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. Which are stereotypical enneatype 5 anxieties and motivations. @TheMemphis, I think people type him as ISTP due to something resembling the Ti-Ni loop theory despite showing all intuition and no sensing. Not every smart person is a 5. Compare it with L and Near and see which of the two it will be more like. I'm sociopath. I have an IQ 173. To finish to repeat myself, i until now fail to see how he could be a high Se user. He is not INTP. For me Sherlock is an INTJ or ENTJ with aspergerSorry guys, but ENTP. Some of my typing (from a retard enfp). bobnickmad , Sherlock is only aware of things that draw attention; Sherlock is not all the time analyzing the small details of the environment - has moments that he must have everyone shut up and think. I'm sociopath. Like any fictional character he will end up somewhere on the spectrum, but that's where it should end. This can also be Ni. I have an IQ 173. Its just the trading mark of Sherlock Homes, in every adaptation of himself his method is about observation. 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. He isn't an N type at all just because he wasn't conceived as one. 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. His primary drive is not to understand the world (while keeping it at a distance) in order to avoid being overwhelmed like type 5. Quiet, reflective, and idealistic. Interested in serving humanity. Well-developed value system, which they strive to live in accordance with.. But as he says, at the beginning he has many explanations and progressively explore all of them (sometimes doing experiment on his room to test his theories or searching on his mind palace the issue of past cases). @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. ISTP's tend to be great deductive and physical, I have a ISTP teacher who has tremendous knowledge about physics and is very good at metaphors and deduce mathematical problems. Sorry for the Flood, it seems that this site is bugI understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. 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. In this site you can find out which of the 16 types this character 'Sherlock Holmes' belongs to!. I find the idea of an individual who excels at using the 4th function pretty far-fetched. He's not out there to have fun. I'm enfp and when I focused in something I can relate that I very selective, objective and I try to evits a lot trival things. I can say four things about Sherlock. Actually a retarded ENFP. All of his time he's this guy lost in thoughts, always enriching his mental palace with new data, making new connections , with his past cases also. He is not INTJ. If #Birdchain had reas what others wrote he should known ENTP is out of the question. I'm sociopath. He thinks of possibility after possibility and distills with cool, hard logic (Ti) to reach a logical conclusion. An INTJ with mature Se will pay attention when he needs to, but being hyper aware like Sherlock. The way he proceeds on a case is basically puting all his mind on spotting certain things and then do some connection that others cannot. Also to discover the truth, that's Ti. Se will make connections, but not connections as deep as Ne (which is what they said basically). Art of deduction = Ti. I can say four things about Sherlock. That's very 7w8 / 8w7. There are so many scenes in which he basically says he thought he was talking to Watson while he wasnt there, that seeing him as a natural observer is weird for me. He is not ESFP. Another INTJ that thinks every smart character is an INTJ. I can say four things about Sherlock. Very objective, seletive, and concentred to be an ENTP. It is clearly a gifted ESFP racist like me. He is not INTJ. Not to mention that the thought of it moves like a movie scene [Ni-Se], not with full information random images [Ne-Si]. "To qiet to be an INTJ". When he is in emotional moments - like the episode that he was drugged - he can understand what you're feeling at the moment and is quite sluggish in understanding what the momentary feelings of others. Sherlock from the movies (Guy Ritchie one) is ENTP btw. Sherlock divides what is important to use and act sequentially to the goal, is not lost on internal logical ideas, he goes ahead because he wants to get somewhere. I'm sociopath. 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. He is not INTJ. I'm curious about Euros. What about the case of "The Abominable Bride", I see no problem of Ni more than do. I have an IQ 173. As a INP trait tend to be open to other options and rapidly changing idea or theory, they can learn to be objective, but tend to rely on the relativism of the environment and does not rely totally on anything – are questioning by nature. I think IxTP makes more sense than INTJ. I'm sociopath. He is not INTJ. Here you can explore of famous people and fictional characters.. It is clearly a gifted ESFP racist like me. But this doesnt mean anything. 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. He is not INTJ. I'm sociopath. 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. mental palace seems to be Ti-Si, always likes to store data inside the palace and when he is in trouble he calls connections with details of the past, analyzing every detail to find the solution, all internal way a computer. Welcome to MBTIBase - PersonalityBase, here you can learn about Sherlock Holmes MBTI type.. Like Light Yagami from Death Note. Sherlock cares more about people than he is comfortable admitting, and has had some very public meltdowns. I have an IQ 173. Ni types would naturally omit since the beginning possibilites and arbitrary/intuitively follow one lead. He is not INTJ. 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. Not to mention Doyles (the author) is (was. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not INTP. There is something vaguely 8w7 about this, but I don't think he's out there trying to dominate the world. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not INTJ. He is not ESFP. 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. he's fully trust in your intuition. He is not ESFP. I understand ISTP and INTJ and cases can be made for both but to me INTP fits the best. I'm sociopath. He is not INTJ. I respect your opinion M, but I'm still pretty sure he's a Ti dude. The I just know think is related to every intuitive (not only Ni users). Maybe because. Where is his Si. About this "decisive" thing, i wonder why there are so many INTPs in history who achieved such great things in Science domain for example, after all INTPs are just people who know nothing and who change their mind everytime. 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. do we need special requirements to be certain types now. I can say four things about Sherlock. 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 enjoys his work, sure, but ultimately it's that he can't stand not knowing and has to prove himself all the time. L was not confused about his theories, especially for the Kira case. In the famous "sun" scene he says that facts that don't have a practical use don't matter at all to him. He lacks Fe, as he constantly reminds us all. This is something that’s relatively unique to Ni users –especially Ni dominants. He evens mock them. (Though I think INTP's may end up being so, since I heard that many lose interest in various issues they consider boring and only seek development in which they are constantly challenged. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not ESFP. He is not INTJ. Too emotional for being an INTP or ISTP. The data comes to him almost simutaenously from observing someone in a few seconds. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I have an IQ 173. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is selective, objective, arrogant with a concentreted intuition. Sherlock is decisive and NEVER distrusts his insight's - which is quite common with Ne users. He is not ISTP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not ESFP. when I said "should" I mean "more likely". '' Indeed, only they know the superficial way MBTI is common to find that it refers to '' INTP style '', but obviously this is far from true. Now we go to where I want to go: INTJ or INTP. Then he runs off and tries to tells other about it so he can solve the case (Se. 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. Cumberbatch probably being an INFJ might be the answer. He is not ESFP. Stop getting your dicks in a twist. 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. He is not ESFP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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. He is INTJ, and you do not have arguments for it not to be INTJ or House. An INTJ would probably find impossible and would want facts and conclude that the boy was suffering from a trauma. Well to begin with, what L first did in Kira case was to do some observation : the murders were occuring in a specific city (fact) then he emitted the theory that Kira was located in this city and then organised a way to prove that. I have an IQ 173. Sherlock must use its Ni a very coherent way. He is not ISTP. But it's true starting observations. Ti is the focus on introspectiveness to analyze the present situation or various imaginary situations so 'subjective logic' '. He is not INTP. He likes to share and explore possibilities - it seems Ne, no. Its just the trading mark of Sherlock Homes, in every adaptation of himself his method is about observation. To be honest, it's too early to tell. Or like his brother, who isn't INTJ at all. Also posted a comment on the site and so far not appeared. He is not INTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. Introverted Thinking (Ti): He thinks constantly, compiling, analyzing, and sorting through data to search for logical consistencies, to solve a crime by discerning the motives as well as what truly happened. He's an overconfident 5. All of them clever people. Just because he is smart “herr durr must be INTP” liked by Boy1234556 and Girl123456, what a coincidence Your point being. Ni and Se users act according to the context and situation. Now we see the side INTJ: Arrogant, assertive, concentrated intuition and selective, decisive and goal - not to leave the options open to something you are doing. (Nothing a developed You can not solve. Sherlock is obviously an antisocial ESFP that has its shadow INTJ quite exposed. I'm sociopath. Others see that he is a Ti user, he follows theory over pragmatism. He is not INTJ. His primary drive is to entertain and challenge / prove himself. He is not INTP. Speed reading of visual cues = Se. He gathers the objective facts of his environment and draws conclusions from them, primarily through his keen observational skills. He is an intelligent man but his intelligence is just an instrument for him and he uses it for his work. I'm an INFP with Te developed. That's why the battle is between INTP an INTJ. There is no way he is Te-Fi. He is not INTP. The process is fast, can quickly identify and choose what should be done. I would logically assume their goal is to find the ultimate truth behind each case they work on. I'm an INFP with Te developed. And Mello ESTP. He is not ESFP. I'm an INFP with Te developed. Si is another thing since he has really good memory/sensory recall, but regardless. He search for facts, his theories are according to facts already stored it in order to select them and use them in the future. The alleged deductions it has to be according to actual and potential events. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Sherlock, BBC characters list.. It is not INTP. thescienceofdeduction. I'm sociopath. @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. He is not ESFP. So is he an INTJ or INTP. According to this thread, INTPs dont have eyes nor ears. What Sherlock uses isnt the sensorial facet of observation. Sherlock in the books is ISTP. But we all can argue about each interpretation from the series and movies. Introverted Intuition (Ni): Once he has all the physical details of a case, Sherlock can re-organize them in his head and come to an accurate conclusion and prediction about what the criminal may do next. He is not INTJ. In defense of sensor: I know this is a weird concept, but sensors can also make logical connections to arrive at the complete picture. I'm sociopath. Once the problem is solved, Sherlock Holmes has done with it and passes to something else. 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. I'm sociopath. He is not INTP. I have an IQ 173. I have an IQ 173. At a point he often misses whats happening on his surroundings, while ISTP are aware of these things. 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. He has Aspergers. I'm an INFP with Te developed. Se about the obvious, and Ni about the possible deep meaning. This is not contradictory at all to the NTP reasoning (you could say this is exactly how they work). He is not INTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not ISTP. Sherlock is selective, is not concerned with comprehensive knowledge, he is only interested by what is important to your work. Discover Array, and more, famous people, fictional characters and celebrities here!. He is not INTJ. He is also known to hate "trivial knowledge" that doesn't pertain to his investigation (very anti-Ne). I have an IQ 173. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not ISTP. He was actually very confident in his reasoning but didn't have the proof. He is not INTJ. And from what I observed, the INTJ's who want to be more quiet, always think what to say and, in some cases, think both in talk that end up not saying anything just because of Ni. His Fe is very weak, he doesn't care about what other people think of him and doesn't want to please them. Why does everyone think he's an INTP. They just start from the evidence and draw conclusions from that (deductive reasoning/S) instead of coming up with a vague hypothesis and THEN finding evidence to fill in the gaps (inductive reasoning/N). He is not INTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. The rest of the "Se" is Ne. Sherlock was created to be a kind of detective superhuman: the character demonstrates comprehensive ideas and connections with past details creating a recreation and has needs to give life to a skull to discuss about it and always are storing data for that [Ti-Ne -Si]; usually shows a quick analysis of what happens around focusing on small details of the environment and likes to taste with concrete techniques [Ti-Se]; It has good deductions, plans, only learns what matters for the future and has great need to finish things [Ni-Te]. He is not INTP. He's the product of someone's imagination, not an actual human being that conforms to a certain function stack. Ne: He percieves the ideas of the objective reality. But, Sherlock is an INTJ. He talks about it more in the second episode of season 3. He is clearly an INTP. When he was younger he seemed like an INTP poster child. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not INTJ. Ti is obvious but I don't know where did people see Ne. No INTJ would say he doesnt need to bring evidence once the case is solved, its just the perfect contrary of Te. I have an IQ 173. He is not ISTP. This is how it works Ni. It does not use all the possibilities in his favor, he knows, he is bound for facts to create intuitive analysis. Not because the character is disorganized that it has no Te. Comparision is not a. He is not ESFP. he have also the inferior fe who make him want to see as intelligent. He is not INTP. In objectivism, Sherlock is really more like the side INTJ. He is not INTJ. No, that's for higher users. I'm sociopath. when I said "should" I mean "more likely". The same post explains why he isnt an INTJ. 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. There are more induction than deduction. His main motivation is not being bored. An INTP investigator doesn't look to evidences. He is not ISTP. Being hyperactive and impulsive is not just Se indicator, but Ne's as well. Finally, the character has traits of INTP and INTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not INTP. Sherlock wants things done, Sherlock is decisive and arrogant is not someone easy to get along like the INTP's. 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. Bein "show-off" is probably instinct related. 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. Thats Ne aux, not Se aux. He just wants to learn enough to come kicking the door and giving slap in the face. He doesn't use Ne or Te, his process is clearly all Ti/Se based with Ni insights. L process is different from Sherlock. You think an INTP rule out possibilities. He is not ESFP. He is objective and bound in now. I think he's trying to solve the puzzle and prove that he can solve anything he puts his mind to. And from what I observed, the INTJ's who want to be more quiet, always think what to say and, in some cases, think both in talk that end up not saying anything just because of Ni. There's a page on the same blog dedicated to typing him as an INTJ, and didn't I ask you to explainyourself. Ne collects data and possibilities from the external environment and he interprets them with Ti and stores them in his mindpalace. I think that's very INTP in fact, not knowing the most obvious but having particular knowledge about something else. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not ISTP. Clear INTPWhy sx/sp. He is not ESFP. Can a type develop their 4 function so well that they use it as an asset, or even be really good at it from time to time. "an intp at least should be interested to talk about the recent scientific discovery". Finding connections without losing too much time thinking about assumptions not as viable. Changing my vote for INTP. a TJ would not care about what other think about him, SO NOT INTJ. Sherlock draws from the evidence at hand (Se) to predict the case´s solution in a tunnel vision-like manner (Ni). 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 is not ESFP. He's only together when he's working a case. INTP over INTJ. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. He is not ISTP. ''Sherlock’s Se observations (which we’ve gone over) feed his Ni, but there are also times where Sherlock knows the answer long before he can logically or empirically prove why it’s true. Sherlock is focused on the external world but not in a pragmatic/realistic way, but an intuitive linking one. I'm sociopath. He is not ESFP. My verdict: INTP. Trust me, I have a few ones. I think that the actual originative function (as we usually understand creativity) is Fi. Go fuck yourself. I can say four things about Sherlock. I'm an INFP with Te developed. Sherlock really have traces of IxTP, the point is that the INTJ functions predominate strongly in him. ISTPs perhaps are the best at analysing the world around them and using practical deductive logic. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not INTP. He is not ESFP. A Te would also be more organised, which is not the case if you look at his flat. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Sherlock Holmes likely is!. He is not INTJ. He is not ESFP. He is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. MBTI assess how an individual thinks, not how he behaves or keeps his environment. He is not ISTP. It is not Ti-gift, he does not show Ne, it is very objective and decisive to have Ne, it is not open minded to possibilities he is focused on what is, not what could be equal to L, Rust or ReidI mean. I can say four things about Sherlock. I can say four things about Sherlock. INTP's obviously collect evidence, but pave the way for various theories and end up ignoring certain facts and sequential process. He is not ESFP. He is not INTP. 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.
