    Though you must admit the sheer breadth and depth of his knowledge is quite beyond what would be expected as possible from most INTPs. Also to only have one interest and structure everything around it, very not P.
    He did not have only one interest in the narrow sense.. his primary interest did encompass other interests.
    He was a bit bored if he did not have a case.. very P!

    Did he observe details from bottom to top or from top to bottom? He looked only for the relevant details. He went from top to bottom.

    The police regularly go from bottom to top. They engage in a mass of unnecessary work.

    What do the Scotsmen know about English gentlemen.

    I can believe it. The ISTJs love encyclopedias.

    You can read them in or out of context.

    I used to go through dictionaries too... it's nice to find a new word.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Read them to get to sleep.

    A dictionary, an encyclopedia, boiling water, a lemon, absinthe and then a piece of Blake of course.

    Inevitably Willie comes to haunt you in the deep of night.. but if you have had three absinthes as a night cap you escape the memory of the exaltation.

    I say have two.

    Reborn!

    I thought I would bring this back to life since the movie came out and this is the best thread discussing the type of Sherlock Holmes.
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!
