'Real-life Sherlock Holmes' reveals how you CAN read someone's mind A ' forensic mind reader' has spilled his secrets on how to figure out.
Although his chronicler does not consider Holmes's habitual use of a pipe or his less frequent use of cigarettes and cigars a vice per se, Watson—a physician—occasionally criticises the detective for creating a "poisonous atmosphere" of tobacco smoke. His companion condones the detective's willingness to bend the truth or break the law on behalf of a client—lying to the police, concealing evidence or breaking into houses—when he feels it morally justifiable,  but condemns Holmes' manipulation of innocent people in " The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton ".
Holmes derives pleasure from baffling police inspectors with his deductions, and has supreme confidence—bordering on arrogance—in his intellectual abilities. While the detective does not actively seek fame and is usually content to let the police take public credit for his work,  Holmes is pleased when his skills are recognised, and responds to flattery.
A Prime Minister  and the King of Bohemia  visit B Baker Street to request Holmes's assistance; the government of France awards him its Legion of Honour for solving a case;  Holmes declines a knighthood "for services which may perhaps some day be described";  the King of Scandinavia is a client;  and he aids the Vatican at least twice.
He has a flair for showmanship, preparing elaborate traps to capture and expose a culprit often to impress observers. The detective is similarly described by Stamford in A Study in Scarlet. Holmes relaxes with music in " The Red-Headed League ", taking the evening off from a case to listen to Pablo de Sarasate play violin. His enjoyment of vocal music, particularly Wagner'sis evident in " The Adventure of the Red Circle ". Drug use Sidney Paget Strand portrait of Holmes for " The Man with the Twisted Lip " Holmes occasionally uses addictive drugs, especially in the absence of stimulating cases.
He uses cocainewhich he injects in a seven-percent solution with a syringe kept in a Morocco leather case. Although Holmes also dabbles in morphinehe expresses strong disapproval when he visits an opium den ; both drugs were legal in lateth-century England. Watson and Holmes use tobacco, smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes, and the detective is an expert at identifying tobacco-ash residue. As a physician Watson strongly disapproves of his friend's cocaine habit, describing it as the detective's "only vice", and concerned about its effect on Holmes's mental health and intellect.
Finances During his career, Holmes works for the most powerful monarchs and governments of Europe including his ownwealthy aristocrats and industrialistsand impoverished pawnbrokers and governesses. Although when the stories begin Holmes initially needed Watson to share the rent for their residence at B Baker Street, by the time of "The Final Problem", he says that his services to the government of France and the royal house of Scandinavia had left him with enough money to retire comfortably.
The detective is known to charge clients for his expenses and claim any reward offered for a problem's solution; in " The Adventure of the Speckled Band " he says that Helen Stoner may pay any expenses he incurs, and asks the bank in "The Red-Headed League" to reimburse him for money spent solving the case.

Holmes has his wealthy banker client in " The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet " pay the costs of recovering the stolen gems, and claims the reward posted for their recovery. In " The Problem of Thor Bridge " the detective says, "My professional charges are upon a fixed scale. I do not vary them, save when I remit [omit] them altogether".
In this context a client is offering to double his fee, and it is implied that wealthy clients habitually pay Holmes more than his standard fee.
The detective tells Watson, in " A Case of Identity ", about a gold snuff box received from the King of Bohemia after "A Scandal in Bohemia" and about a valuable ring given to him by the Dutch royal family; in "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans", he receives an emerald tie pin from Queen Victoria. How can you build on such quicksand? Their most trivial actions may mean volumes Women are never to be entirely trusted—not the best of them".
Watson calls him "an automaton, a calculating machine", and the detective replies: A client is to me a mere unit—a factor in a problem. The emotional qualities are antagonistic to clear reasoning. I assure you that the most winning woman I ever knew was hanged for poisoning three little children for their insurance-money".
I think she is one of the most charming young ladies I ever met, and might have been most useful in such work as we have been doing. She had a decided genius that way; [ I should never marry myself, lest I bias my judgement. In " The Lion's Mane ", Holmes writes, "Women have seldom been an attraction to me, for my brain has always governed my heart," indicating that he has been attracted to women on occasion, but has not been interested in pursuing relationships with them.
Ultimately, however, in " The Adventure of the Devil's Foot " he claims outright that "I have never loved Despite his overall attitude, Holmes is adept at effortlessly putting his clients at ease, and Watson says that although the detective has an "aversion to women", he has "a peculiarly ingratiating way with [them]".
Hudson is fond of Holmes because of his "remarkable gentleness and courtesy in his dealings with women. He disliked and distrusted the sex, but he was always a chivalrous opponent". Irene Adler Main article: Although this is her only appearance in the canon, she is one of the most notable female characters in the stories: For this reason, Adler is the frequent subject of pastiche writing. The beginning of the story describes the high regard in which Holmes holds her: To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman.
I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler Five years before the story's events, Adler had a brief liaison with Crown Prince of Bohemia Wilhelm von Ormstein while she was prima donna of the Imperial Opera of Warsaw.
Adler slips away before Holmes can succeed, leaving only a photograph of herself alone and a note to Holmes that she will not blackmail Ormstein. Her memory is kept alive by the photograph of Adler that Holmes received for his part in the case. In early he is a chemistry student with a number of eccentric interests, almost all of which make him adept at solving crimes. Shortly after meeting Holmes, Watson assesses the detective's abilities: Well up in belladonnaopium and poisons generally.
Knows nothing of practical gardening. Tells at a glance different soils from each other.
After walks, has shown me splashes upon his trousers, and told me by their colour and consistence in what part of London he had received them. He appears to know every detail of every horror perpetrated in the century. Plays the violin well. Is an expert singlestick player, boxer and swordsman. Has a good practical knowledge of British law.
Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet Subsequent stories reveal that Watson's early assessment was incomplete in places and inaccurate in others.
Despite Holmes's supposed ignorance of politics, in "A Scandal in Bohemia" he immediately recognises the true identity of "Count von Kramm". His speech is peppered with references to the Bible, Shakespeareand Johann Wolfgang von Goetheand the detective quotes a letter from Gustave Flaubert to George Sand in the original French.
Watson won't allow that I know anything of art, but that is mere jealousy, since our views upon the subject differ". In "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans" Watson says that in November "Holmes lost himself in a monograph which he had undertaken upon the Polyphonic Motets of Lassus ", considered "the last word" on the subject.
The detective believes that the mind has a finite capacity for information storage, and learning useless things reduces one's ability to learn useful things. The later stories move away from this notion: The detective is particularly skilled in the analysis of physical evidence, including latent prints such as footprints, hoof prints, and bicycle tracks to identify actions at a crime scene "A Study in Scarlet", " The Adventure of Silver Blaze ", "The Adventure of the Priory School", The Hound of the Baskervilles, " The Boscombe Valley Mystery " ; using tobacco ashes and cigarette butts to identify criminals " The Adventure of the Resident Patient ", The Hound of the Baskervilles ; comparing typewritten letters to expose a fraud "A Case of Identity" ; using gunpowder residue to expose two murderers " The Adventure of the Reigate Squire " ; comparing bullets from two crime scenes "The Adventure of the Empty House" ; analyzing small pieces of human remains to expose two murders " The Adventure of the Cardboard Box "and an early use of fingerprints " The Norwood Builder ".
