    Anyway, I don't know why you think I should find myself an older INTP. Are you trying to hook me up with someone? I don't date anyone over 35.

    I don't think that's true. I once knew a girl who presumably had a personality, and on one occasion, she chose to sink her teeth into an individual's hand. She would never do that today, because she's gotten a little more protective of herself. She doesn't want to get some kind of blood disease or have her reputation spoiled by tales of people biting. There are lots of people out there who are just like that.

    Anyone can relax with a few Xanax (or Ex-lax, in its own way), and I think that Intuitives are probably a little more inclined toward pharmaceutical adventures than some other types.

    I'm sure INTPs can trust their own minds, but perhaps they really shouldn't do that. I would only recommend trusting the mind of an INFJ, which, incidentally, was not Sherlock Holmes's type.

    But you don't work at a detective agency.

    Keep talking like that, and you're going to turn someone on. It won't be me, but I know some people really get hot when they hear that kind of talk, which is maybe what Sherlock Holmes was trying to do all the time. He never did get married, so maybe in his own way, he was trying to flirt with Watson. Of course, I always assume a fictional character is gay. The only exception to that is Dostoevsky's creations, because the man seems like too much of a Christian.
    LOL. How do you NOT realize that the way this INTP is talking to you is EXACTLY how Sherlock interacts with people. Being as analytical and challenging as possible.

    Some of you might know about zobiesruineverything who always provides great explanations for his typing. I would say about 80% of everything he says I agree with. So now, I'll let him do the talking. In the link below is his explanation why he thinks Sherlock is an INTP.

    Eh . . . he comes off more like an INTP trying, somewhat playfully, to act like Holmes.

    The author of that article doesn't even try to make a case for Holmes being a Ti-dom. They just present it as a given. They also don't seem to know what abductive reasoning is. Abductive reasoning is what you do in the first two steps of the standard scientific method: you observe something, and then you make a hypothesis about it. Sherlock Holmes does that all the time, and it isn't really a sign of Ti, much less Ne. The author thinks it is a sign of Ne because they apparently don't know much more about Ne than they do about abductive reasoning. They describe Ne as a function that arrives at a single result, when in reality, it is Ni, the opposite kind of intuition, that tends to do that. Ne is a type of intuition that multiplies possibilities and resists settling on any one of them. Holmes doesn't do that. Moreover, he is almost completely devoid of Fe, and even seems to have an aversion to the function. A normal INTP usually exudes a certain amount of Fe, even if the function is sometimes clumsy in them, and Socionics predicts that an INTP (who would always or almost always be a LII) would seek out and greatly appreciate shows of Fe.

    Jinkies. Oddly enough, not at all. That's just how I think. When I try I tend to come off more as an absent minded professor according to my team at work.

    Which is a very different kind of persona than Sherlock Holmes, and one more in line with a normal INTP.

    That's your issue. Your type is what you do when you apply little or no effort. With effort applied I can make a damn fine ENTJ in some situations.

    I never thought of sherlock as an INTP, both in literature as well as movies.

    Te-Fi seems much more fitting than Ti-Fe.

    So you think Holmes capable of answering the question "are you happy"?

    I'm pretty sure he is gifted with the ability to formulate a sentence or two, yes. (Not sure what your point is. :P )

    It's an illogical question. The answer is moot and irrelevant. Everything about the character says to me that he would respond as I used to "define 'happy'".
