    If you have any stimulants in your system (such as caffeine) when you go to bed it will only make matters worse. And while they don't create the symptoms you describe, they definitely make matters worse and will only mess with your attempts to improve the situation.

    Yes, I do this, and I'm not a 5 and don't even have a 5 fix.

    Yes! I haven't tried to follow a "bed time" since I was very little. I have had a lot of trouble whenever my responsibilities call on me to be somewhere consistently before 10 AM. I haven't even tried to go to bed at a set time before 1 AM in a VERY long time, (1 AM is often my "set time" because I know that's when I get tired), but I imagine I would react similarly if I did.

    I have this problem. I generally find that listening to music/audio books knocks me right out within 15 minutes.

    You're a 6, right? Maybe it's a trait shared by all the head triad types.

    Maybe. I thought it was just a type 5 thing because our disintigration point is 7 but I wouldn't be surprised if the whole head triad had sleep problems. If it is the whole head triad why did nobody bring this up before? LOL

    It takes me about 9 seconds to fall asleep. I can do it on command, almost.

    I'm either a 6w7 or 7w6 So/Sx. I'm leaning more towards 7w6. Yeah, maybe it is a head type thing.
