    Default Sherlock Holmes (movie with Robert Downey Jr.)

    This is based on the movie with Robert Downey Jr. I am already very very sure of Sherlock as INTP, but I'm curious as to what you all think, and I'd like to narrow down some of the other characters as well.

    My initial read for Watson is ESTJ, but perhaps ISTJ.

    Irene: ENTP
    Lord Blackwood: ENTJ
    Lestrade: ESTJ

    These three are just guesses.

    Personally speaking
    homes = ENTP
    Watson = INTJ

    thats how I would see it in the books and previous films... Watson was more E in this version of Homes.

    In the movie I thought:

    Sherlock = ENTP
    Watson = ISFJ
    Irene = xNTJ

    I think downey just made holmes appear more ENTP just like did with iron man.

    Actually from the books its clear that homles is an ISTP.

    As to Watson i'm unsure.

    Holmes seemed INTJ, Watson seemed ESFP.

    I didn't see it yet but I have a hard time seeing how Robert Downey, Jr.+Sherlock Holmes could be anything but an NTP. (In this case INTP.)

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    The literary Holmes is supposedly INTJ, although I also wouldn't completely negate INTP. I don't know about the movie version. In the original stories he is definitely not an extrovert.

    Interesting, Holmes as an ENTP (same type as Downey's Iron Man), which most of you seem to agree on. Makes me want to see the movie.

    The literary version and older movie versions are STJs. His brother Mycroft is possibly an INTP.

    The older movie versions may be STJs, but not the books. He's too weird.

    I've never read the books, but what's ISTP about him?
    Extreme attention to details. Most of his cases are solved based on details that don't fit it with the overall case. Ti + Ni. He analyses the case and sees the patterns but most importantly the patterns are always secondary to the details and be always changes patterns to details. He is also very physical and in almost every case likes to get on the seen of the crime and examine everything himself.

    Also constantly criticises his brother Mycroft (who is a sort of anyalist for MI6 and an INT) for never - despite being able to many times make a correct guess at the answer to cases holmes takes to him - getting out and actually checking his theories and finding actual answers.

    In the books its all in the details. Holmes is always thinking about the details and all the significant things he can find out from them.
