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

Details on the wall

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.

I am going to post fun facts about our beloved fictional detective character, Mr. Sherlock Holmes


/loud applause

Thank you.

I am going to reveal the fact either from the novels, or the movies.


Talk about the novels first, here they come!

1. Sherlock Holmes played the violin pretty well

Tv Series Sherlock Holmes played violin

Movies Sherlock Holmes played violin

Sherlock Holmes, in fact, created some songs with his violin. It was seen in Scandal In BelgraviaTV series Sherlock Holmes made a sad song for Irene Adler. It seemed like Sherlock started to like her intelligence. But yeah, that case was one of several mysterious ending that had ever been written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

2. Sherlock Holmes once killed off by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle because he got sick of writing about him, but fan support made the author bring him back

I know, I do know, that fan support is AAAMAAZZZING. I am so glad that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle finally made a right decision.

Nice mustache by the way, Sir.

3. Gregory House from the TV show, House, is made based on Sherlock Holmes

Gregory House

Tv Series Sherlock Holmes (what a good-looking guy!)

Movies Sherlock Holmes (amazing as usual, Sir!)

That TV show, House, well I admit I have watched it, but like only several times. Because it was good, really, but it hasn’t stolen my mood yet, but as far as I watch, Gregory House does have a good skill in debating, like Sherlock did.

4. Sherlock Holmes is a drug addict (uses cocaine and opium) and at the time it was socially accepted

I watch the movies, I watch the TV series, and of course I read the novels. The novels was made long time ago, in there I read that Sherlock Holmes was a true drug addict. But when I saw in TV series, Sherlock Holmes used nicotine patches to control his addiction to cigarettes.




5. Sherlock Holmes was using fingerprints as evidence long before most police departments

There are still a lot of facts in Sherlock Holmes movies, but you can read it yourself in IMDb.


Done. Go busy yourself.

When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth
