    I guess I should turn in my SP card... While I didn't conform to a 9-5 job, I do work a 7-4 job... And I am not a morning person at all. So I think that classifies me as conforming to the norm... But, you gotta do what you gotta do. If I get laid off I'm screwed, I don't know anything about drugs or the mafia.

    7-4 rather than 9-5? No, that's not what the masses want you to do. Sorry, but you're pretty much screwed.

    9-5 sounds heavenly compared to 7-4... That's an extra two hours of sleep.

I'm quite sure he was ISTP, but Doyle based him on two of his friends/acquaintances (if I remember correctly), so he would probably carry traits from people with different types.
    I read that book, too, and I agree with @Lark that Holmes is indeed an ISTJ. In fact, that entire character type (which shows up in pretty much every noir film) is basically an ISTJ.

    And anyway, your interpretation of Se and Si seems to be wrong even on a stereotypical level. Se is movement...it's kinesthetic (more being in tune with ones' surroundings), while Si is detailed, perfect for dealing with minutiae (i.e., perfect for academics, being a detective, being in control of ones' surroundings.)

    I bolded the key difference.

    MBTI is apparently psychometrics for broke ass mother lovers and tight bastards.
