1. Details Matter

Whatever incarnation Sherlock Holmes appears in, his best quality is his exacting eye for detail. If you pay as much attention to detail in your work as Holmes does, you will find that little will get past you

2. Get acquainted with all fields of knowledge 

Holmes knew what facts were relevant and also knew where to go in order to get them.

3. Look for a possible alternative and provide against it

One should set aside any and all prejudices when considering facts -Sherlock Holmes


4. There is more than one way to approach problem 

Holmes uses many problem-solving approaches. Sometimes he goes out in disguise and asks the right questions. Other times, he sits up all night smoking a pipe and thinking about it. At yet other times, he uses clever deception to draw the players into the game.

5. Some mysteries are never solved

For Holmes, this is not a bad thing. It doesn’t bother him that he can’t find the answer to everything. Instead, he finds it fascinating and files the information away for future use. If every case were so neatly resolved, he would probably lose interest, being prone to boredom as he is without a puzzle at hand. The infinite nature of the puzzle keeps the fun alive in his work.

6. Free yourself of your habits of over-thinking

Be aware of your feelings and emotions and get some measure of detachment from them.

7. Partners are indispensable 

As we all know, Watson is Holmes’s partner, his assistant and follower. He is also the audience and narrator of Sherlock Holmes’s most unique adventures. Even the brilliant Holmes likes to have someone to bounce ideas off of, and Watson’s mere presence is sometimes more useful than any other tool at his disposal.

First things first, for those who haven’t seen any of Sherlock Holmes movies or TV series


I don’t care HOW or WHEN, but please, watch it. Or read the novels, the authentic novels.


Sir Arthur Conan Doyle released his books between 1890s. And, the novels NEVER BECOME OUTDATED.

You really don’t believe me?


Fine, we’re heading to our head topic now. I am going to compare Sherlock Holmes in the movie, which is Robert Downey Jr. – the philanthropic, billionaire, genius, playboy  *quoted from the Avengers /wink* –

Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes

As you know, he is also the main figure of Marvel’s technology geek superhero – the Iron Man – . I am amazed with his ability to debate with someone. He is invulnerable when he is speaking, there’s always an answer for him. And, he has a grrrreeaaat sense of humor.

STILL, there is one man that I will compare to him

He is Benedict Cumberbatch 

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes

I am guessing a lot of people do not know him. He was born in London (aww here he comes my England cutie) and he is 36 years old now. He is planned to act in Star Trek 2 *source from google; I’m not a fan of Star Trek*.

The way he investigates something is adorable. He represents the true Sherlock Holmes, like what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in his novels. Shortly, he is 90% likely to true Sherlock Holmes.

According to that comparison I wrote, obviously I took Benedict Cumberbatch as the winner. Why?

Here, to Robert Downey Jr. You are good-looking for a man like your age, you have a FANTASTIC sense of humor, and your skill in debating is… /hands up.

BUT, you are better in your Iron suit, saving people with your guns and weapons, than investigate, figuring out something mysterious. Sherlock Holmes does have sense of humor, but not as big as you.

Benedict Cumberbatch represents the true Sherlock Holmes. The way he talks, laughs, investigates, mad, yes, you deserved the role, Mr.

FYI, the Sherlock Holmes 3 (movies) still remains unknown, who are the casts, the plot, when it will be released. (source IMDb)
