Sherlock Holmes is a London-based private detective world renowned for his astute logical reasoning, his skills in the art of disguise, and his use of forensic science to solve cases. Holmes prides himself on his ability to successfully draw large conclusions from minuscule observations. Holmes is described by his dear friend Watson as ‘Bohemian‘: a very eccentric man “with no regard for contemporary standards“. “What appears to others as chaos, however, is to Holmes a wealth of useful information.” Indeed Holmes finds solving complex problems highly stimulating, and has an insatiable hunger for knowledge. Certainly Sherlock Holmes‘ innovative attitude causes him to bend the truth and rules quite often, all of course on behalf of solving cases. While Holmes’ demeanor often comes across as that of a distant or cold intellectual, while in the midst of an interesting adventure Holmes is capable of remarkable passion and can even display a flair for showmanship. Highly eccentric, extremely intellectual, possessing an innovative attitude and entrepreneurial spiritSherlock Holmes is the quintessentialInventor Rational. Indeed Holmes‘ often relies on his talent for improvisation and expedient action, as do most Inventors, a habit that often gets him into trouble. Not to worry though, as Inventors like Holmes’ entrepreneurial spirit often miraculously gets them out of the jams they put themselves in. However, so does his dear friend Watson.
Doctor John H. Watson is Holmes’ faithful companion and trusty sidekick, and also Holmes‘ dearest and oldest friend. Watsonchronicles the majority of Holmes’ professional ventures, and is the narrator in most of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s novels. Watson is described as a capable and brave companion to Holmes, while also serving as a skilled sharpshooter and a talented doctor and surgeon. Though the two companions have a close relationship, Holmes’ often appears to abuse Watson and take him for granted. Watson often attempts to solve crimes on his own using Holmes’ method, with moderate success. Though Watsonnever masters Holmes’ deductive methods, he is astute enough to follow his good friends line of reasoning. Watson essentially serves as solid and consistentmoral and physical support for his dear friend Sherlock Holmes. Extremely dependable, highly attentive, and overwhelmingly patient serving as a great source of strength and stability for Holmes Doctor John Watson is undoubtedly an Inspector Guardian. Indeed Watson puts up with quite a bit from his dear friend Sherlock Holmes, but offers thoroughness, detail, legality, and order to compliment the innovative talents of his esteemed colleague.
Guardians are comfortable with the Rationals’ skeptical attitude and obsession with their work, which seem very much like their own pessimism and sense of duty; they often admire the NTs ingenuity, which is such a reach from their own reliance on by-the-book routine.

Holmes was a man of habits… and I had become one of them… a comrade… upon whose nerve he could place some reliance… a whetstone for his mind. I stimulated him… If I irritated him by a certain methodical slowness in my mentality, that irritation served only to make his own flame-like intuitions and impressions flash up the more vividly and swiftly. Such was my humble role in our alliance.
Kourtney and Kim Take New York Season 2 premiered last night and oh how sweet it is. The Kardashian Family (especially Kim) will be looking for ALL SORTS of PR after meeting with considerable public backlash regarding Kim’s divorce to obscure athlete and general idiot Kris Humphries. The family of course has since launched a damage-control campaign, the cornerstone of which will be Kourtney and Kim take New York. According to sources the show will be heavily portraying Kris (Humphries) as a villain, as Kris (Jenner) is an executive producer of the show itself and therefore can doctor it’s content however she wants. God forbid after making 18 million dollars off of the wedding Kim couldn’t even suffer through more than 72 days of a bad marriage. Whereas most people suffer through a bad marriage their entire lives. For free. If someone offered you 18 million to marry an idiot would you do it? Of course you would. Let’s be honest. All you have to do is ignore everything he/she says. With 18 million you could even buy them a separate house and you wouldn’t even have to ever say a single word to them. After typing Kim as a Promoter and being presented with some pretty solid arguments to the contrary let’s take a closer and more in-depth look at Kim Kardashian and her dear and beloved sister Kourtney Kardashian.
Kimberly Noel Kardashian was born October 21 1980 the daughter of attorney Robert Kardashian and his wife Kris Kardashian. Her father was of Armenian descent, her mother Dutch-Scottish. Kim led a pretty standard young Los Angeles socialite life until tragedy struck and her father died of esophageal cancer in 2003 at the age of 59. Kim is a self-described obsessive-compulsive neat freak and is actually very shy and timid in large groups. While much of her behavior comes off as being a Promoter, this is no doubt through the guidance of her overbearing and strong-willedPromoter ArtisanmotherKris Jenner. Indeed Kim has essentially done exactly what she has been told, in order for Kris to create an ‘empire’ with. Kimcares deeply about her family, and takes great pride in protecting the health and welfare of those she cares about. Self-admittedly uptight, extremely hard-working, actually quite shy, and very loving of her family Kim Kardashian is undoubtedly a Protector Guardian.
Artisan parents have little or no difficulty rearing Guardian children. They enjoy encouraging their Guardian children to get into all sorts of sports and arts and adventures, hoping to help loosen them up and show them that life is for living here and now. With such modeling on how to have fun Guardian children can overcome their natural caution and seriousness, and can thrive both at home and school. There is a danger that highly aggressive Artisan parents can communicate dissatisfaction with their Guardian child’s over concerned attitude, letting it be known that they aren’t happy with a goody-goody child of either gender—teasing them about being a mama’s boy or a little pris. If SP parents expect (or demand) boldness and impetuosity from their SJ children, they will only frighten or inhibit them, and teach them they are a failure. Fortunately, it is unusual for both parents to be Artisans, and quite usual for the other parent to be a Guardian. So the Guardian child often has the best of both worlds: someone to show the way to joy, and someone to show the way of duty. Please Understand Me II, p. 277
Superman is the quintessential comic book hero and a dearly beloved cultural icon. Super-dependable, outstandingly dutiful, and extremely persevering, the Big Blue Boyscout is undoubtedly anInspector Guardian. Characterized by his indestructible physicality and strict code of ethics, Superman knows that with great power comes great responsibility. Indeed Superman adheres to the idea that actions speak louder than words, and takes the responsibility of defending Earth and its inhabitants very seriously.
Man of Steel will reportedly NOT BE connected with a Justice League Universe, despite Warner Bros. saying that a JLA film is the studios top priority. Some ‘in the bizz’ of course say that this is because the studio thinks Snyder helming the project is a huge risk, after the god-awful job he did on Sucker Punch. Snyder, who has directed other comic-book adaptations like 300, is an idiot, and has an aggregate rottentomatoes score of 54%. Meaning that if directing movies is like taking a class, he failed. Clearly Warner Bros. figured out that they hired a moron to reboot the most iconic superhero of all time and tried to damage control by disconnecting the project from their future aspirations (a JLA film). Who knows, this imbecile could get REALLY lucky and turn out a DECENT film, in which case Warner Bros. would probably change their mind and use the film as solid footing for a JLA movie. Solid footing that they desperately need. Man of Steel‘s release date has been pushed back to Summer 2013.
