Is it possible for a person to ever become like Sherlock Holmes?

like the one Robert Downey Jr played. Can a human alone be that smart?

Dream big but know your limits. Yes they can, but it is very hard to reach that level of sharp wit. His wit can cut through lead. Remember that in movies other people have thought of the script for him and that many people thought of it. Not to mention that the problems were fictional and the author could create any thing they wanted. Some mysteries are never solved even by the greatest. Some are left better unsolved. You may aspire to have the intelligence and wit of sherlock but i aspire to have the intelligence and cunning wit of L Lawlet.. he's from a anime. (death note. he's also my profile picture) their both fictional, in a way, one in the same.
~ Good luck, Bro

I watch death note too! L is my favorite character he's also inspired along with Holmes. I hate that he dies though.

sure they can and are, but where there is intelligence like that they are usually bored out of their minds and can become criminals to entertain themselves (if they aren't careful) and see what they can get away with (outsmart the police).

They are considered highly skilled detectives, who reach their level of expertise, the longer they are on the job.. Whether employed by a police department as a detective or an agent with the FBI, DEA, ICE, CIA, AFT and/or the U.S Marshall's Fugitive Task Force etc., these highly trained, experienced people can do anything Sherlock Holmes could accomplish however, usually better...

I am good at these things too.. I was reading Digital Fortress (novel by Dan Brown) and before the actual thing coming out, before 3 chapters of protagonist getting to know what the things is, i figured it out.. Felt like 'the greatest genius' then.. :)
