TYPE FIVE | THE INVESTIGATOR
Basic Desire: “It’s important to me that I am capable, competent, and informed.”
Basic Fear: “I most fear being helpless, useless, or overwhelmed.”
Super Ego Message: “I know that I will be ok as long as I have something that I’ve truly mastered.”
Type Fives are analytical, observant, and insightful. They often felt as if they were either unable to get their needs met by their caregivers or were consumed by the presence of their family of origin. This developed a sense that a Type Five would need to meet their own needs in private through holding onto their resources. Type Fives are intentional about managing both their resources and their energy levels. Not so much out of selfishness or stinginess, but more so out of a belief that this is what is necessary to survive. Fives hold a continued awareness of this and make decisions to prevent depletion. There is also a drive to understand the world. A need to know the intricacies of life from all angles, all timelines, and all explanations. These two pieces often play together in someone who lives life through the safety of their mind. They experience the world through research, thought, and curiosity.
Type Fives are inquisitive, economical, studious, self-sufficient, and likely the most informed person you know.
