    Not the healthiest, no. Although some of us aren't very healthy. My BFF turned to me the first time we saw Sherlock and said, "OMG... he's you!!" LOL

    I think Mycroft is an ISTJ with a very well developed Ne. He can't foresee people's actions and plan for them like a Ni-user would, so he is frequently caught off guard -- Moriarty plays him, Irene plays him, and Sherlock plays him. An INTJ would have contingency plans in place and some idea of where their actions were headed (think of Khan in the new Star Trek movie -- Ni-dom. Foresees everything, plans for everything, only is undermined because he didn't know Spock could consult with Spock Prime). He also shows Si in everything he does -- maintaining the British empire and proper way of doing things, reminding Sherlock of childhood incidents and what was learned from them, etc.

    I also think Sherlock is an ISTP/INTP hybrid. He's very energetic, likes to do hands on experimentation, and notices the smallest details in his environment one moment (Se) and is incredibly lazy, intellectually stimulated, and excited about new ideas (Ne) the next. Not a straight up INTP, but more consistently ISTP (Se -- observe details, Ni -- intuitive leaps / narrow down the possibilities to one conclusion) a lot of the time.

    I don't think Luna "feels" enough to be an INFP. I can understand why she'd be typed as one, but I myself, don't see it. If anyone in the series would be an INFP it would be Remus.

    Ah... Well, thanks for sharing your evaluations! Sorry for not replying earlier; just checked back on this thread. And I suppose that makes sense. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at figuring out characters' cognitive functions myself; I tend to rely more on comparing them to the 16 character archetypes and seeing which matches best and/or going by side on each of the four individual axes of inclination to type them and only look at cognitive functions to confirm my ideas or as the main case if I'm really confused between two or more types. I know typing people by function is the most accurate way; but it's not something I have a perfect grasp on.

    Well, I suppose our Sherlock is just an oddity. Who would have thought? (Besides everyone living with him in the United Kingdom?) What about Conan Doyle's Sherlock, though? Are you familiar with the orignal series/character? Would he be more INTP-ish in his own right, perhaps? (Or would the mastery of noticing detail that he's so known for have to bind him in Se-ness there as well?)

    Everyone types the original Holmes as an INTP, but if you read the books and pay attention to how he describes his own methods -- it's all Se-Ni. [ my argument ]

    I swear I posted this very same topic before, but it must have been on another forum.

    I don't have an opinion anymore, I just like to see how you all project various traits onto this fictional character.

    Luna's a clear INTP. I'd offer my analysis but others have done better. Her and Dumbledore are the two clear INTPs in the series.

    Ah... Well, of course! I'd thought a long time ago that Sherlock's skills of observation were highly indicative of Se; but then I came to hope that it could somehow just be chalked up to his super-intelligence. Your argument for Ni over Ne makes a perfect fit. This makes me wonder if there are actually any major versions of the series in which Holmes is a clear INTP, as his observational skills are such an integral part of his character.

    I think people just type Luna as INFP because she seems to fit the stereotype. This sort of hippy, dreamy, soft spoken, quiet girl who's into random things. That's not really how we are, at least not how I am. Personality types with Fi as their dominate function do not come off as warm until you speak to them. Ever watched the film American Beauty? Ricky Fitts is more of an accurate representation of an INFP in my opinion. On the outside he looks cold, but it's not till he talks that you sense his gentle nature. Though his mental health is questionable, I relate to him 10x more than Luna.

    Anyway, I don't know if she's an INTP but she's not an INFP.

    INTP. No feeling functions are used. Her Fe outburst at the end is the only time you see it.

    I cannot believe I'm going to say this, but I agree that she's an INTP. Man I wished she was an INFP.
