    nah. never saw the show, but I guess sherlock holmes (the literary character) is interesting and all, but he's not my idol. my idols are characters like Gandalf.

    INTP - The Thinkers


    Having read the few posts of this thread so far, I must say I don't at all think that this particular Sherlock Holmes BBC character is even remotely INTP. Nor is Indiana Jones, wow no not at all, hell no.

    I actually can imagine myself being a bit like Gandalf, if the opportunity were to ever arise. I mean of course in our typical modern world, I will be my chirpy, spritely loserish self - nothing like Gandalf at all -, but in an alternate reality where I can be a wandering old man of magic, coming and going as I please, I just know with absolute certainty that I would be the exact type of guy to say, "A wizard is never late... he arrives precisely when he means to!" Such classic INTPness right there - providing the most logically unbreakable justification for even the most finnicky of things.

    I also always thought Maximus Decimus Meridius was an INTP. His quest is so deep, direct, he hardly talks but you really feel his journey, totally connecting in some way. But other sources put him at ISTJ, so I have no idea now. I guess in reality I would never undertake the kind of quest he did. If I were caught by an Arab slave trader and forced to fight to win the crowd, I'd probably somehow slink away, craftily and silently without telling a soul, then go somewhere else without a second thought. Maybe I'd plot revenge for the killing of my wife and son, but I probably would be more tactical, like the dude from Law Abiding Citizen - planning everything meticulously to work perfectly without any extra input from myself after the first stage has been executed.

    Ok I'm waffling on a lot now.

    As much as I'm not like them in real life, I can easily see myself falling into the mindset of someone like Gandalf, Yoda, or any other omniscient, respected, and socially disoriented character.

    I imagine that O'Brien from 1984 would probably be the baddest INTP of all time.

    Sherlock notices everything, however small, as soon as he enters a room. Your typical INTP wouldn't even see the zeppelin that just came crashing through his front door... Besides that, he always finishes everything he does and he has little interests besides those that are helping him resolve mysteries. Sherlock is not an INTP.

    INTPs aren't really into celebrity and fictional character worship. Try the INTJ section.

    Or atleast I ain't.

    I think you dinged it. Sherlock is ISTP. Truly. And sort of a psychopath, which INTP is not (not typically). But yes, we are more big picture and theoretical. Less psycho. Both types are profoundly curious.

    Sherlock actually mentions being a high functioning sociopath a number of times. I can be odd and eccentric, but I can't really think of myself being a sociopath.
