  1. I agree that both the original Holmes and BBC Sherlock seem to want to be a different person than who they naturally are and spend a considerable amount of time and energy trying to convince other characters of their chosen identity. That does make the character hard to analyze.
  2. I see I have to have another look at what the letters are supposed to describe. Hm. One site says that judgers are structured and make decisions early, tend to take control and give specific instructions while perceivers are flexible, like to keep their options open and tend to let others be and do their own thing. With that in mind, I would say Sherlock is still a J with his 13 different scenarios and bossing John around, but on the other hand, he is very good at adapting to unexpected situations and doesn't seem to mind at all when he has to improvise. I guess when it comes to these personality traits, Sherlock is actually a pretty well-balanced individual.
  3. Introverts, how is your day?

    If menopause will make me even more sensitive to heat than I already am then I dread the day it begins. I am already suffering and it's only May. I have a migraine and feel nauseous.
  4. Well, he's opinionated and decisive. I think Mycroft is a P and Sherlock is very J.
  5. Hmmm, what is Sherlock... Let me see what I think. BBC Sherlock, I mean. I can't decide whether he is an introvert or extrovert. On the one hand, he has an extremely vibrant inner life and retreats into his Mind Palace to solve problems or relax. He also has no time for chit-chat and avoids formal occasions. On the other hand, he doesn't thrive without an audience, so he needs a lot of external validation and he also relies heavily on outside stimulus and doesn't cope at all well with boredom. That actually sounds extroverted to me. I know that I think book Sherlock Holmes is an introvert but Sherlock... N or S? Also not so easy to decide. Theoretically S because of his extreme talent for observation, eye for detail, etc. But his deductions, while he claims they are built on pure logic and evidence, often come across as more intuitive. He also poses as a thinker but the show spent a lot of time exploring how he is actually a very emotional person at heart. So I think he would say T but I say Mrs Hudson is right - F. Definitely more J than P. So my options are INFJ, ISFJ, ENFJ or ESFJ. Hm. I don't think any of the descriptions of those sound much like Sherlock.
  6. Oh gosh, yes, my husband does that too. It drives me up the wall sometimes. I definitely think of him as more P than J though in general.

    In the book, boy Mowgli kills the tiger and then returns to the jungle. The narrator says he stayed there until he became a man but that this was a different story. That's the end.
  8. Introverts, how is your day?

    I loved that scene! Mycroft is perfect there. But I also love that Sherlock apparently has a picture of Rosie on his phone. That's... Touching somehow.
  9. I am funny that way, it makes little difference to me what body parts are being eaten. I don't find liver, lung, blood etc inherently more disgusting than muscle tissue. It's all equally weird and off-putting when I think about it too hard.
  10. ... And mine is too slippery. Pins, barettes, whatever, they just slide right out. I can't "do" anything with mine either despite the length. Just a simple braid or a bun and for the bun I need one particular kind of clip that is mostly marketed to little girls and therefore comes in either pink or purple with little satin flowers on it. Very professional looking.

    Have you seen the trailer? I lost interest after that even though BC is of course the perfect voice actor for Sheer Khan.

    Really? I thought you weren't a fan of "dark" movies.
  13. Pseudonym, I feel for you but at least you have made me feel better about not having the curly hair I always wanted. Mine is straight and fine and boring but at least easy to brush. If I don't wash it with shampoo every day, it looks disgusting and I feel terrible and grungy. I used to use conditioner as well but now I have switched to a special oil that I just have to rub into the tips after I get out of the shower and that works just as well if not better and saves me time and water. I neither blow-dry nor style. I go to bed with wet hair and braid it in the morning or put it up in a bun. It's really long right now because I haven't gotten round to having it cut in ages and I must say, it's really no trouble at all. The last time I had short hair was when I went to elementary school. In many ways, long hair seems easier to take care of.
  14. At a place where my husband used to work, a pair of pigeons tried to build a nest on the windowsill outside the office. They kept failing and one of his colleagues, annoyed by the racket, finally printed out instructions he found on the Internet and taped them to the window. It actually worked - a few days later the nest was finished and eventually there were eggs, then chicks, then fledglings.

    What's bad about being 24? I loved being 24. My 20s were great. Much better than my teens.
