    Oh, also, I've ust started learning about Enneagram and I think Holmes is a 5w6, and Watson probably a 6w5.

    Have you seen the new Sherlock series ? I've only seen " A Study In Pink" so I don't want to type them but am still curious to see if the typical Holmes/Watson types are still the same.

    In the first episode Sherlock seemed more extraverted, thinking better with talking, rushing into things etc., so XNTP (I think Moffat is an ENTP and pushes a bit of himself on to some of his characters, like Moriarty at the end). In the next 2 episodes I am more confident he was INTP. Watson is still an ISFJ, and a very loveable one. I think the enneagram types are the same, but then again, I'm new to that, so I could be wrong.

    I'm guessing you mean in the books? He seemed like an ESTJ from what I could gether. Te dominant. Focused on the task at hand, duty oriented, making quick but limited links based on physical evidence. In the 6 Napoleons, he failed to see the importance of linking the stolen busts with the murder, preffering to deal with them as seperate crimes rather than connecting them and searching for deeper meaning. He is fairly smart and a good officer, but he never looks deep enough, taking evidence for what it seems to be on the surface,like in a Study in Scarlet when he assumed the person died of natural causes (am I remembering this correctly?) rather than thinking to look for poison, as the body seemed unharmed.

    Oh and in the show he was probably more of an ISTJ. What type do you think Holmes is, chihuahuasrluv?

    I'ld like to help you on your quest, but it's a shame, I've actually never really read a book about Sherlock Holmes or watched a movie or know any of the stories. Never really caught my intrest. I've read alot but all these books are really weird and noone really knows them. Like Hesse - Wolverine, which is a book about a guy that feels lonely in a bourgeois company, obviously is on some kind of drug and falls in love with a hooker, with which he enters his "magical theatre and the entry fee is your sanity". Or I've read Kafka - The Judgment or - Metamorphosis, the two best books he has ever written. Again about a guy who feels uncomfortable with his role society demands him to play and who writes about it in the most abstract way possible.

    The only book that wasnt writtenin totally abstract inconcrete letters I ever read was Camus - L'Etranger. This a book from the time of existensialism and describes a guy to whoim nothing in life has any value and who is completly free of emotion. The story ends with the famous sentence that goes something like this: "After Mums funeral, we went to the beach. While being there I met the guy again, who robbed us the other day. So I chased him and stabbed him to death, so he may never rob someone again." That book's a burner .

    But Sherlock Holmes, I have no clue about..
