    Isn't he just saying what he's thinking when it's necessary for the plot? Your argument sounds solid, but there are plenty ones for INTP as well.

    Well I think Mycroft could be INTJ and Moriarty is more of an ENTP.
    The best thing about human beings is that they stack so neatly.

    It's been a while since I've read the books, but in the BBC show, he seems more like a J type to me; probably INTJ. Cognitive functions aside, he seems to come to conclusions much more readily than a perceiver would. Even with his extensive knowledge, how does he narrow down all possibilities to a single, definitive answer so precisely? He doesn't seem to spend much time actually theorizing as he does deducing. Not only is he quick to make decisions, but he doesn't seem to have ANY doubt about his conclusions. Sherlock comes up with the most bizarre correlations too. It always leaves me wondering how someone who is so meticulous never has any reservations. I would imagine that a perceiver would at least consider a remote possibility that some other explanation might exist.

    I think Sherlock is actually Ti/Fe, maybe ExTP.
    ISFJ for Watson.

    How can so many people think that BBC Sherlock is INTJ?
    There can be no Sherlock (or at least I can't imagine Sherlock) who isn't Ti user. And BBC Sherlock is definately Ti user, the first thing he does is noticing details and patterns, making connections between them, understanding how things work.

    It's true that Sherlock is making here some detailed and advanced plans, but it's all a game for him, part of the puzzles or chess game. I think that comparing him with Mycroft shows the best the difference .

    So I think:
    Sherlock is INTP 5w4,
    Watson ISFJ 2w?,
    Mycroft INTJ 6w5

    Why are we always portrayed as villains! We can never be the hero, we're always the villain. It's almost degrading. Or we're that loathsome character that no one can stand.

    Do people really hate us that much?

    I think Sherlock Holmes is the perfect example of a good INTJ. We can do good things too.

    I think Watson is an INFP. INTJs and INFPs have a special relationship with each other.

    I'd definitely say Mycroft is an INTP.

    Sherlock is better at making judgements, whereas Mycroft is much more thorough about the details.

    This is exactly what INTJs do. Not all of us are 6s, some of us are 5w4. INTJs are obsessed with patterns and connecting them and contextualizing them. This is what I'm constantly doing all day long.
