BBC Sherlock: Mycroft Holmes [INTP]



Introverted Thinking (Ti): Mycroft in some ways is even more detached than Sherlock, and capable of analyzing situations and people from various angles in an attempt to understand them. He dislikes his brother’s professional choices, but shows greater understanding of them than Watson anticipates (he recognizes that Sherlock’s heart is involved in his casework). He occupies a high position in the British government due to his ability to fix and improve on existing systems, by finding their flaws. Mycroft is a man of few words and always quick to analyze, critique, and point out the flaws in any new information.


Extroverted Intuition (Ne): When questioned as to whether or not he is convinced of what Sherlock will do, Mycroft answers that he is never sure of anything, but instead plans for all possibilities. He engages both in long-term thinking (his concern over the fall-out of his brother’s behavior) and realizes the implications in the short term, through immediate fall-out. Mycroft is as keen at detections as his brother, but also more apt at reading between the immediate lines, and forming accurate conclusions about other people’s habits, interests, and emotional states. He keeps his attention on the big picture, and is apt at seeing patterns that his brother overlooks, particularly as it relates to human and emotional interactions (this is also his Fe).


Introverted Sensing (Si): Frequently, Mycroft will reference childhood incidents, previous cases, Christmases spent together, or brotherly rivalries from the past. He has a strongly patriotic link to the British government and the ability to handle details in his position as a think-tank. His experience with Sherlock, and his brother’s former behavior, gives Mycroft strong memories to draw from when anticipating what he may do next, or worrying about him falling into self-destructive patterns. He learns from past experience. Mycroft doesn’t particularly like family traditions such as spending Christmas together, but maintains them out of a sense of duty and obligation.


Extroverted Feeling (Fe): Though he would adamantly deny it, Mycroft cares a great deal about his younger brother. He feels protective over him and goes out of his way to both chastise his behavior in how it impacts others and to try and protect him from emotional harm; when conflicted over whether to tell Sherlock a lie about Irene’s death or not, he consults John for advice, indicating he is comfortable with an agreed-upon moral course of action. He is good at reading people’s feelings and knowing Sherlock’s moods even when he hides them. Mycroft is also much better than his brother at playing political games, at compromising to keep the peace, in behaving nicely in public, and even apologizing for his rude behavior. Even so, many of these traits are reflective of his environment, and he freely admits that caring has its disadvantages.
