    I think we've had a communication malfunction.
    Classic Sherlock Holmes (as in the books): ISTP.
    Classic Mycroft Holmes (as in the books): INTP.
    Classic Sherlock is very hands-on, physical, pragmatic/practical. He tests his theories by doing real-life experiments (rapping corpses in the morgue with a cane to see if/when they bruise).
    Classic Mycroft "will not even go out of his way to verify his own solutions, and would rather be considered wrong than take the trouble to prove himself right", and Sherlock admits that between them, Mycroft would be the better detective if he ever got his butt out of his chair.

    I agree that Mycroft is INTP, but the difference between him and Sherlock is down to E/I, not N/S.

    The idea that Sherlock is an ISTP is patently ridiculous. Everyone knows he is ENTP. Saying that he must be a sensor because he can do "real life" experiments is frankly an insult to intuitives. He uses intuition far more than mere "common sense". He just knows how to supplement it with concrete facts and details, because he's a genius. All geniuses use their inferior functions, that's why they're geniuses.

    In other words, you're not an expert on Sherlock because you haven't read all the books. You'd have to read the books to know the character.

    Anyway... why do I bother. So if Sherlock is our new definition of ISTP, what the hell is MacGyver?

    Those descriptions are written for ordinary people. Sherlock Holmes is not an ordinary person.

    Anyway I'm not going to spend any more time on this. The topic has already been debated ad nauseam in other threads on PerC and elsewhere.

    .....There's a lot of people that have been typed fictional and non-fictional and aren't ordinary and they use the same descriptions......so...I don't understand the relevance of Sherlock being not an ordinary person...
