Default Some questions

First of all, if you had to type Sherlock Holmes (the movie version) what type do you think he would be?
Secondly, if a person refuses to open up to others until others open up to them first, does that make them introverted?

If I had to guess one type, probably SLI. Answer to second question: not necessarily.

I would say SLI also. He said something about people twisting facts to suit a theory and how this is the wrong approach. Can't remember the exact wording but that was the gist of it. I thought that was very SLI.

a typing of SLI is pathetically naive.

i would type the movie version, to say nothing of the book version, as most closely IEI and entirely conforming to beta ideals of relationships, politics, and views of "how the world works." a similar film in terms of its reflection on a beta worldview, focusing on rebellion, intrigue, and ideology to say nothing of the process-driven machinations and multiplicity of perspectives and contradictions of society is V for vendetta -- also in my opinion a clearly over-the-top thematically beta film.

the sir arthur conan doyle version of sherlock holmes by contrast might well be LSE as the russians all claim -- though i wouldn't scoff at LIE either.

incidentally, i rather enjoyed the books and i hated the movie, which seemed to make a point of being as unfaithful as possible to the original.

Itinerant stapler, I am getting the sense that you enjoy posting random nonsense just to see who is gullible on the forums. I find the notion that Sherlock Holmes is IEI to be very improbable. While I wasn't completely sure on his most likely type, it is rather obvious that he is some sort of logical rather than ethical type, and somewhat likely that he is sensing rather than intuitive.
Thank you, everyone else, for your sensible input. The reason I asked about Sherlock Holmes' type is because I have a friend (who is mentioned in a recent thread of mine) who I realized is very similar to Sherlock Holmes, at least the movie version of him. However, I didn't want some sort of bias to affect people's responses, which is why I asked in a different thread. Plus, Holmes is just an awesome character, lol.

oh, of course. naturally quadra-related values, messages, and roles are merely random nonsense to weed out the wheat from the chaff -- jungian dichotomies; that stuff is serious business. especially when you think of it in the context of fictional characters whose archetypes are ubiquitous and who carry all manner of literary improvisation. really, it makes no sense to use quadra values ever in interpreting the visualization of a generic character archetype. really, you're exactly right, we should look at how easily that character expresses ratiocinative factoids and concrete observations about the world, because that's what socionics is about.

I believe that Robert Downey Jr. is ESFj and Watson is INTj.

you make incorrect use of the word "antisocial" to mean "unsociable."

assuming for a moment that i do in fact think the typing of the sherlock holmes character from that movie as SLI is an atrocious typing only an extremely inexperienced socionist would make -- which i do, absolutely -- how would you prefer i communicate that point differently from how i did earlier if i were interacting within earshot of you?
