Sherlock Holmes Myers-Brigs type - MBTI, enneagram and personality type info
I'm an INFP with Te developed. Actually Mycroft talks kind of a lot and is alway people telling what to do. 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]. I have an IQ 173. ISTP makes more sense than INTP or INTJ because it's less self-contradictory. I'm sociopath. I have an IQ 173. He is not INTJ. Ni-Te-SeGuys, he is the embodiment of Mastermind. 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 is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. 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. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not INTJ. I can say three things about Sherlock. I understand why they see it as you, but come on. I know a guy who has Asperger and is ENTJ. I have an IQ 173. He is not ISTP. 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. 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. Te's are well these tuscan thinkers, who know little and force their application in several cases. I can say four things about Sherlock. has left the house* (for my first post)Just adding the parallel between him and Moriarty. 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. You think an INTP rule out possibilities. He is not INTJ. I have an IQ 173. He is not 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. Knowledge that is not useful to him is. 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 is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. He is not INTP. 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. The people who think Sherlock is S crack me up. He is not INTP. 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). He is seeking mind games, something that ISTP not like much. I am gonna say INTJ but you could also make a good argument for INTP. Sherlock relies a lot on the mental knowledge, relies heavily on what comes to your mind. 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.. INTP's obviously collect evidence, but pave the way for various theories and end up ignoring certain facts and sequential process. I can say four things about Sherlock. 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 is not contradictory at all to the NTP reasoning (you could say this is exactly how they work). Sherlock sees the flaws and makes a deduction of how it happened. I have an IQ 173. 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. You don't say Manecleis. He is not ESFP. An INTJ with mature Se will pay attention when he needs to, but being hyper aware like Sherlock. Dude is detail oriented and obsessed with concrete data. I'm sociopath. He's a Ti-Dom with inferior Fe. I can say four things about Sherlock. Once the problem is solved, Sherlock Holmes has done with it and passes to something else. I'm sociopath. I can say the same with the "possibilities" argument they use for arguing against Ne. I'm an INFP with Te developed. he have also the inferior fe who make him want to see as intelligent.

This personality type is highly individualistic and Champions strive toward creating their own methods, looks, actions, habits, and ideas!. Ne collects data and possibilities from the external environment and he interprets them with Ti and stores them in his mindpalace. Moriarty INTJ (Sorry). I can say four things about Sherlock. This Sherlock Holmes is an INTP, there is no doubt about it.
. Fuck you, you want it to be an INTJ just because he's smart, but in fact it is a super INTP like me. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. When he was younger he seemed like an INTP poster child. Finally, the character has traits of INTP and INTJ. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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 didn't believe it at first, but I'm sure he's a Ti user of some sort. An INTP would not be able to ignore possibilities or the worst day of his life. I can say four things about Sherlock. And Mello ESTP. I can say four things about Sherlock. But this doesnt mean anything. INTJ's with asperger syndrome can be quite thorough and observers. Ne and Fi is obviousHenzy. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He is not ISTP. It is clearly a gifted ESFP racist like me. Sherlock is obviously an antisocial ESFP that has its shadow INTJ quite exposed. He is not INTP. He is not INTJ. He is not ESFP. INFJs are visionaries and idealists who ooze creative imagination and brilliant ideas.. 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. He delts them. I'm an INFP with Te developed. He does not care much about the mess and also liked to discuss ideas with a skeleton John to appear. I'm sociopath. not necessarily in the middle, but he is an INTJ when best to be so and an INTP when best to be so. He is not ESFP.

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. If #Birdchain had reas what others wrote he should known ENTP is out of the question. He is not INTJ. He is not ISTP. Sherlock wants things done, Sherlock is decisive and arrogant is not someone easy to get along like the INTP's. Introvert in MBTU just means that the dom function is focused in the subjective instead of the objective. Too emotional for being an INTP or ISTP. ETPs come off as more expressive than EFPs. But it makes me fall to the side P - an INTP well developed indeed. He likes to share and explore possibilities - it seems Ne, no. He is not INTP. Its just the trading mark of Sherlock Homes, in every adaptation of himself his method is about observation. He is a ISTP with Ni very well treined. I can say four things about Sherlock. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I find the idea of an individual who excels at using the 4th function pretty far-fetched. I'm sociopath. It is not INTP. He is not ESFP. He is not ESFP. I'm sociopath. 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 INTJ. I'm sociopath. He is not ISTP. I have an IQ 173. Then he runs off and tries to tells other about it so he can solve the case (Se. Loyal to their peers and to their internal value systems, but not overly concerned with respecting laws and rules if they get in the way of getting something done. Detached and analytical, they excel at finding solutions to practical problems.. He doesn't use Ne or Te, his process is clearly all Ti/Se based with Ni insights. But I've found out that lots of interresting characters are actually INTJ. I have an IQ 173. Ti is silent, subjective logic that keeps to itself. He evens mock them. I have an IQ 173. (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. Accept me as your Lord. He is not INTP. 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.

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. All of them clever people. 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 can say four things about Sherlock. My love is boundless, even for a racist ESFP Nazi like you. he's fully trust in your intuition. He is not ESFP. He came to the conclusion that Light was Kira very quickly in the first few episodes, but I understand what you mean. ''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. I have an IQ 173. I'm an INFP with Te developed. 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. L process is different from Sherlock. A Te would also be more organised, which is not the case if you look at his flat. An INTJ would probably find impossible and would want facts and conclude that the boy was suffering from a trauma. 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. Again, Ni-Te-Se. I think we shouldnt be fooled by the need of results of his job and take it for Ni. Even if not directly tested, public voting can provide good accuracy regarding Sherlock Holmes Myers-Briggs and personality type!. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. The concrete that you speak is already being dominated by these ideas beyond the present.

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. He is not ESFP. In objectivism, Sherlock is really more like the side INTJ. Mycroft he is a better example of an INTJ than Sherlock is. Like any fictional character he will end up somewhere on the spectrum, but that's where it should end. The alleged deductions it has to be according to actual and potential events. "To qiet to be an INTJ". 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. No INTJ would say he doesnt need to bring evidence once the case is solved, its just the perfect contrary of Te. The way Sherlock notes quickly and already has an accurate intuitive response is more Ni than Ne. @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 wants things done, is selective and addresses a sequential order and logistics to solve the case. He's some sort of STP, nothing INTx about him you fools. I'm an INFP with Te developed. For me Sherlock is an INTJ or ENTJ with aspergerSorry guys, but ENTP. He is not INTJ. I do not know if an INTP with Si developed would be so, but I think he is a ISTP Ni developed. He is not ESFP.

Ti is obvious but I don't know where did people see Ne. I'm an INFP with Te developed. Se will make connections, but not connections as deep as Ne (which is what they said basically). He is not ESFP. I'm sociopath. 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. He is not ESFP. Arguments to INTP are few convincing. So its not "observation = Se", its "being observative in his daily behavior = Se" which is not the case with Sherlock at all. Sherlock is obviously an antisocial ESFP that has its shadow INTJ quite exposed. The second letter in the personality type acronym corresponds to the preference within the sensing-intuition dimension: “S” stands for sensing and “N” stands for intuition.. com/2014/11/09/why-sherlock-isnt-an-intp/The Sherlock deductions are very assertive and well-aimed to be an INTP. 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. consider* My bad, i'm a bit exhasted. Sherlock is decisive and NEVER distrusts his insight's - which is quite common with Ne users. He does not rule out possibility without exploring them, while an INTJ wouldn't bother to do it so much. Sherlock demonstrates strong social and manipulative abilities [Se-Te] a INTx are very quiet and do not know manipulate and persuade equal ESxP's. Sherlock really have traces of IxTP, the point is that the INTJ functions predominate strongly in him. 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.

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). Ni and Se users act according to the context and situation. The INTJ vote is just laughable, he doesnt share any point with this type.

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.

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. Sherlock is selective, is not concerned with comprehensive knowledge, he is only interested by what is important to your work. This guy is literally all about sensory details, I don't see how people don't see "sensor" in him. He is not ESFP. INTP over INTJ. Ti is the focus on introspectiveness to analyze the present situation or various imaginary situations so 'subjective logic' '. 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. In defense of sensor: I know this is a weird concept, but sensors can also make logical connections to arrive at the complete picture. Sherlock is INTJ. 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. Mind palace = Si. I understand ISTP vote, but does not have as an auxiliary If having all that intuitive ability. Actually a retarded ENFP. 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. I have an IQ 173. 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. He was more theory oriented, while our sherlock is more adventure oriented. It uses Ni and Te for this. To be honest, it's too early to tell. According to this thread, INTPs dont have eyes nor ears. I'm sociopath. His Fe is very weak, he doesn't care about what other people think of him and doesn't want to please them. The fact that he does not care about any of the aftermath of the cases he resolves is also very INTPish. 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. There is no way he is Te-Fi. And Moriarty is an ENTP. thescienceofdeduction. Sherlock use obvius Ni-Se than Ne-Si, and is objective not subjectiveHe's much more closure to INTJ than to INTP tough. Now we go to where I want to go: INTJ or INTP. What you meant to say is no way is Sherlock an S. He is not ISTP. He is an INTP, and i join you on the fact that observation isnt in his natural tendencies. 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. Ti are always changing ideas as they analyze things, it's the nature of Ti. He is not INTJ. Behavious doesn't imply functions. He is not INTJ. He is not ISTP. Like Light Yagami from Death Note. Sherlock is far from being xNTP, really. He is not ISTP. He is not ESFP. @TheMemphis, I think people type him as ISTP due to something resembling the Ti-Ni loop theory despite showing all intuition and no sensing. I'm an INFP with Te developed. I have an IQ 173. Not because the character is disorganized that it has no Te. I have an IQ 173. I can say four things about Sherlock. Mycroft is not INTJ, is ESTJ with Ne developed. He is not ISTP. I have an IQ 173. An INTP investigator doesn't look to evidences. What is the best option for the MBTI type of Sherlock Holmes? What about enneagram and other personality types?. 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). (Nothing a developed You can not solve. 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. (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. 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. Too accurate for being an INTJ. What is this idea out of nowhere that INTPs are indecisive guys who cant consider fact. He is not ESFP. He is not INTP. He keeps all his, memories, facts, and sensory details in it. Thank you for the explanation. He is not INTJ. I can say four things about Sherlock. He is not INTJ. 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 has a very quick brain, but Ne would he lose a long time in their conclusions. I'm an INFP with Te developed. ISTPs perhaps are the best at analysing the world around them and using practical deductive logic. 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. I'm an INFP with Te developed. L had their deductions, and actually hit, but it was not focused as Near, a clear example of INTJ. 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 can say four things about Sherlock. He is not INTP. It does not use all the possibilities in his favor, he knows, he is bound for facts to create intuitive analysis. All he wants is solving cases. Like Light Yagami from Death Note. I'm sociopath. I can say four things about Sherlock. Sherlock doesn't really have any of these weaknesses characteristic of his type, because he is an ideal form. Which is veryp typicel for bot Te-Doms and fits that he probaly is ESTJ. Even if that gets him into trouble. 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. He just wants to learn enough to come kicking the door and giving slap in the face. If you enjoyed this entry, find out about the personality types of Sherlock, BBC characters list.. He is not ISTP. I'm sociopath.
. 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. But, Sherlock is an INTJ. I'm sociopath. But it's true starting observations. He is not ESFP. He is not INTP. The mind palace has nothing to do with MBTI, it is just a memory trick. Changing my vote for INTP. 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 ISTP. Ne dom with auxiliary Ti. @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. All you can really determine are his preferences, and solely based on his preferences he would be an INTP. 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 can say four things about Sherlock. Finally, the character has traits of INTP and INTJ. Sherlock is more induction than deduction. Stop getting your dicks in a twist. 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. He lacks Fe, as he constantly reminds us all. 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. He is not ESFP. No, that's for higher users. But he still creates a lot of theoris that he discards (When you discard the impossible whatever remains must be the truth). 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. Others see that he is a Ti user, he follows theory over pragmatism. I'm sociopath. He is not ESFP. He isn't INTJ, nor is House, nor are you. This is something that’s relatively unique to Ni users –especially Ni dominants. He is not ISTP. But, Sherlock is an INTJ. You are in the best place to test MBTI and learn what type Sherlock Holmes likely is!. He is not ESFP. But he can excuse because all he says is the truth (a Ti manifestation). Sherlock draws from the evidence at hand (Se) to predict the case´s solution in a tunnel vision-like manner (Ni). He is not INTP. He is not ESFP.
