    Default Type 5's: Do you turn into a hibernating bear under stress?

    My brother is a type 5 and he seems to retreat, talk to no one, and go into his own little world when he is under stress. It's almost like a bear that goes into hibernation. In addition, if I disturb him when he's in his own little world, then he lashes out at me very angrily? So is this a common 5 reaction? Do the rest of you type 5's do this as well?

    Grrrrrr go away.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    This sounds normal, I would watch from a distance though because it sounds like he's bordering on the unhealthy. Lemme just stress the "from a distance" part though.

    I do this, except for the lashing out angrily. I just growl internally and think really mean thoughts I wouldn't dare say out loud. Don't know what type I am though....

    Is he an SP dom? Sounds more like a situation specific conservation of energy and resources than just a 5 trait, though 5's may well be better at it.

    When I get really stressed, I have the biggest urge to break off all my ties or become super impulsive and pretend like nothing's wrong. However, if people try to get too close to my thoughts and feelings in either instance, I tend to lash out at them. I can become very critical and point out all their flaws so that they will leave me alone.

    Yes. He's a self pres 5. Also he has a strong 8w9 fix. That could explain it as well.

    That sounds right....completely cut off any contact, and if contact is made from another person, I will try to bite thier head off to take control back

    Err. I do this as well. More like a cat cornered, but yes. Do not come into my personal space bubble unless you are my SO and he knows to tread *very* carefully. Im a 4w5 though, but when I do that, it means basically that my emotions at that point are not reigned in. They are raw. That also means that you are an idiot to think you won't get smacked around by them if you deliberately prod me in some way. I isolate myself for your own f*cking benefit so you won't have to deal with this shit. You coming in where you are not invited means Im no longer able nor willing to keep you safe.

    Just saying.

    As I said, my SO is the only one Ill tolerate peeking in and he knows the risks very well.

    To some extent, yes. Moreso when I was younger.
