    What type do you think JB portrayed Holmes as? I'm really not sure. Just curious about your opinion.
    I have watched a little of Brett. I think he was pretty damn accurate from what little I did see and I think he portrayed him as INTP, like the books.

    No.

    I can't wait to see your reasoning.. because your reasoning mostly just seems to say the other person's is wrong and never really elaborate why.

    Please prove to me that a job that requires linear reasoning, noticing fine details, and picking up physical cues form people would be suited to an N..
    Evidence is key.
    You seem to be under the impression that a) Ns cannot possible notice details and b) A job that requires abstract thinking, complex patterns and linking concepts and ideas together would be suited to an S.

    Both Ss and Ns can be detectives and both can use N and S functions at the same time. But they generally have different approaches depending on their preferences.

    Yes, I think INTP is probably accurate. Though...in terms of either JB or the books...I'm really only sure about IxTx.

    You MUST watch more if you have only watched a few. Certainly up until the early 90s or so those episodes were pure bliss. In some of the later episodes, the stories were either massively revised to their detriment, or JB was getting really ill and was not really up to it - both his performance and appearance suffered.

    I don't know which ones you've seen but some of my fav episodes are:

    The Second Stain
    The Sign of Four
    The Blue Carbuncle
    The Six Napoleons
    The Empty House
    The Devil's Foot

    Etc etc etc

    Look at the Crap Mulder goes through because he just "knows"
    You think an N detective "Just knows"? That may be true with certain NFs, who would rather trust the feeling of a moment and go with a hunch, but most NTs and I expect many NFs as well do not make important accusations based on "I just know."

    This seems to be some confusion between N and S. Yet you even mentioned "Gut instincts" as one (of 2) reason Ss would be better. What is a gut instinct if not an "I just know."?

    Yes that is how it seems.. And that makes you a good detective.
    However I have motivations that you would not understand unless you have been paying really close attention. Even The N's on here just don't seem to get what my gig is. Even when I am blatant and obvious.
    an astute sensor should have had me figured out months ago. An N is too busy looking for hidden meanings that they missing what's been so plainly right in front of them.
    I am not to hard to figure out, it's just that we don't have enough sensors on the forum. If we did.. I would have been nailed by now .

    Am I crazy? probably.. so don't hurt yourself too much if you don't know what the hell I am talking about.

    Well I figured out you were crazy in the first thread we were in discussion, plus had it confirmed to me with a private message, so I think we're done.

    House is undeniably either ENTP or ENFP. I think F because he generally speaking starts off his investigations with some arbitrarily-defined axiom or another (as opposed to a deduction or anything logically consistent), which he then flatly refuses to let go of no matter what happens. Most of the plot usually revolves around House stubbornly holding on to some personal belief or another, and everyone else trying to prove him wrong.

    That does seem a little like F, though I think (I don't always know what he's talking about) that they usually seem more logically based. He is stubborn, yeah. Though I think that's more of a "I won't accept that I'm wrong until you prove it" which I think is more like too much Ne to Ti, so it isn't as controlled. Whenever he is proved wrong, he immediately draws another conclusion. He seems to have a sort of Ne on rapid fire thing I think.

    Sorry if this doesn't make sense. Everythings a little fuzzy right now. I should go to bed...
