Their result for What Famous Sleuth Are You? ...

Patrick Jane (The Mentalist)

The Con Man Cop

You were a bad man once, using your enviable skills to bilk people out of their life savings. Then a good woman saved you, but you couldn't save her. Guilt turned you to the side of good, but couldn't quite extinguish the twinkle in your eye. Solving crime is fun for you, almost too easy. Your interogation technique involves pissing people off so much that they tell the truth...the hypnotism ain't bad either. You're a con man for justice. You have an agenda for vengence against your wife's killer as well, so sometimes you let down the people who trust you...but never in the long run. You might not be dependable as a human being, but as a sleuth you are solid as a rock.
