    Also, sorry if you get notifications of me liking and unliking your post repeatedly. I was trying to catch a flea on my iPad.
    You're totally right. The whole point of MBTI is that people don't HAVE to agree.

    It's a logical decision. If a city is comprised of its people and collectively those people have decided to build a self destructive society then why would an INTJ get involved? More obviously why would they make it their sole purpose in life? It just doesn't fly with what I've seen of the type.

    Oh and Ni doesn't make you concerned as it a perceiving function without judgement.

    If he were it would explain some of the characteristics but it wouldn't explain how he lives by definitions that he's set himself.

    It's pretty redundant as any kind of proper example of type because we're talking about effectively a superhero who is far more capable than anyone you're likely to meet. It's only really useful for newbies to typing and in those cases the personality displayed matches INTP closer in my opinion.

    Mm, it's a possibility, but what's the case for Te over Ti? I thought his Ti was pretty straightforward.

    You're right, it's not an Ni thing. It's a Te thing. C'mon, man. Get your head in the game.

    Socionics considers him LSE, and Holmes is often used as a shorthand name for the LSE along with Stierlitz.

    As for Bruce Wayne, I'd wager ESI.

    Sherlock Holmes is most definitely not an INTP. He's about as clear-cut a Te user as you could ask for.

    Lol yeah let's just all barge in, say what the type is, and leave without explanation.

    I presume you're referring to the way he classifies everything. That would be Ti. The thing is that usually it's done away from external perceptions but that wouldn't work for entertainment and so Holmes has to keep explaining and voicing his inner thoughts, hence you see the classifications. INTP does work like that we are definers of words, concepts and frameworks. You can't be an architect unless you can do inventories and specify things to a high degree.
