Sherlock “The Great”
Sherlock Holmes is a detective with flaws.   Throughout the novel The Hound of the Baskervilles Holmes presents many reasons to conclude that he is a rude and arrogant detective.   Sherlock Holmes thinks that he knows best and doesn’t care what others have   to say.   He also treats others with no respect, including his apprentice Dr. Watson.   Finally, the detective recognizes how good he is at his job, and as a result, is stuck up and snooty.   Due to the fact that Holmes is full of himself, he chooses not to listen to others below him.    
Nobody can deny how clever Sherlock Holmes is, including himself.   Holmes is very confident in his works and therefore chooses not to pay attention to other’s opinions on a case.   No matter how excellent Mortimer’s or Watson’s explanation for a clue, Holmes considers them inaccurate.   The detective doesn’t even view himself to be mistaken on his own hypothesis.   He also doesn’t listen to anyone because Holmes knows he has a higher level of knowledge and as a result cannot trust others.

Sherlock Holmes is very stuck up and snooty.   In his mind he is better than everybody else.   For an example, at the start of the book Mortimer called Holmes the second best crime solver in Europe.   As a response, Holmes asked who could possibly better than him.   This just shows how self-absorbed and arrogant a character can be.   Being snobby also may make...
