Their Best Self:
5s are observant, rational and clear-headed. They are able to gather and interpret important information to help others to see things from a level and clear point of view.
Their Worst Self:
5s can be detached, cold and reclusive. Unable to see the value in human relationships, they may shut out other people in order to hide from perceived intrusion.
As Head Types
5s need to develop a sense of safety outside of their expertise and knowledge and learned to honor and value their feelings and emotional reactions. 5s may have difficulties with seeing themselves as human beings who need relationships.
The key for 5s is to recognize the tendency to retreat from human contact for fear of engulfment and the tendency to rely on information as a source of security.
5s make great researchers, analysts, detectives, scholars, iconoclasts, and experts because of their ability to synthesize complex information and apply it to the world at large.
