    I remember reading somewhere about him being an INFJ.

    Dominant Introverted Intuition in the way he sees seemingly unrelated facts instantly for what they are, in a way Extraverted Intuition wouldn't work. Also if he was dominant Extraverted Intuition he would be compelled to broadcast his ideas to his companions, rather than save them all up at the end for the denoument.

    Auxilary Extraverted Feeling because he is always going out of his way to make people feel comfortable. This, he does use with manipulation sometimes as it is this function that helps him get information out of suspects and witnesses. He also concerned primarily for the psychology of the crime when looking for a suspect, rather than Sherlock Holmes who is more interested in the facts and clues.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    Good reasoning there Mort Belfry!

    I think you might be right!
    INFJ. No wonder I like Poirot a lot!

    What about Jane Marple?
    ISFJ?

    I don't know about Marple, I mean you could argue that Christie just such took the same character and turned it into a little old woman.

    I think Aradne Oliver is an INXP. Given that she's supposed to be based on Christie herself, I wonder if she's the same.

    Default Titular Detective Types

    Everyone likes detetives... to some degree.

    So what do you think they are? The famous leading detectives in all the shows and books. I've not seen that many to be honest that I could be confident enough to type, but I'll list all the ones I can think of, even if I can't tye them. In fact for the time being, I won't type them at all.

    Sherlock Holmes:
    Hercule Poirot:
    Jane Marple:
    Auguste Dupin:
    Columbo:
    Adrian Monk:
    Patrick Jane:
    Cal Lightman:

    They are all S's

    Except Mulder from the X-files.. he is an N

    Detectives by their very nature are sensors.

    Detail oriented and trusting gut feelings.

    Are you a Jeremy Brett fan? I hope so! I first read Sherlock Holmes when I was seven or eight, but JB was in large part responsible for triggering my massive Sherlock Holmes obsession, which dominated a good chunk of my imaginative life in my teens, and is still present though more in the background...

    What type do you think JB portrayed Holmes as? I'm really not sure. Just curious about your opinion.

    OH are you suggesting they are all N's??

    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.

    Now tell me how .."I just know" is going to stand up in court.

    Look at the Crap Mulder goes through because he just "knows"
