    That seems a reasonable assumption and a rather obvious answer for anyone that believes to be different from the people surrounding them. But I think it says very little on his type apart from him likely being a dominant thinker and a bit of an oddball.

    Isn't "oddball" normally a description assigned to a P?

    I'm curious because we seem to be circling the same drain but getting to two different places.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I actually follow this guy's blog. His writing-style is awesome; really clever and down-to-earth.

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

    Ti describes Sherlock to a T. He withdraws from the object, abstracts it. His judgments are not objective.

    An Example of Using the Function-Attitudes

    Here is an example of how you might use all of the mental functions in their attitudes at the grocery store for a dinner party you are planning :

    As you drive to the store, you have formed an internal image of how the party will look (Introverted iNtuition).
    You get to the store and you see that the tomatoes do not look ripe (Extraverted Sensing).
    You determine you will forgo the tomato salad since you want your friends to feel good (Extraverted Feeling).
    You immediately start to brainstorm other options as you move through the produce isle (Extraverted iNtuition) while examining the other vegetables (Extraverted Sensing).
    You pass the blueberries and recall the documentary you just saw on child labor in blueberry fields (Introverted Sensing).
    That treatment of children is inexcusable, so you decide not to purchase the blueberries to make the blueberry tart you had thought about (Introverted Feeling).
    You pass the bakery and see a carrot cake (Extraverted Sensing) that takes you back to the birthday dinner your mom made for you last year (Introverted Sensing).
    You look at your watch and determine that you had better move a bit faster as you have only a couple of hours left to prepare (Extraverted Thinking).
    You turn your attention to your thoughts to internally structure the rest of your day (Introverted Thinking).

    I think different actors portray Sherlock and Batman differently, not to even mention comic books.

    True. The Robert Downey version of sherlock has taken me a long while to consider accepting and even then my brain treats it as a different character who just happens to share the same name.
