    Asking a social introvert to try harder at being an extravert is asking them to deny who they are, to be a phony, a great big phony

    Just be careful... I mean no offense by this, but I honestly can't tell if you are a 5 disintegrating into a 7 or a 7 that simply doesn't want to integrate to a 5.

    Under Stress (Five Goes to Average Seven)
    Fives usually cope with difficulties by retreating into their minds where they feel more confident and in control. But Fives cannot retreat indefinitely, and eventually they need stimulation and interaction. Fives also tend to be nervous and high-strung, so when there is no outlet for their nervous energy, it builds up, eventually expressing itself in restlessness and hyperactivity. (Fives can become literally "restless"—and often develop insomnia.) Anxiety causes their minds to overheat, and to jump from one thought to the next. Much of their characteristic focus gets scattered. After being alone and concentrating for so long, they begin to overcompensate by overdoing their activities and lurching from one promising idea or experience to another. They become like a starving person at a banquet, and their scattered, hyperactive behavior can look like that of an average Seven. At such times, usually quiet Fives may become very talkative, impulsive, and flighty. Their underlying anxiety gets acted out in compulsive, even manic, behavior in ways that resemble lower-functioning Sevens.
    Having said that, I think the idea of moving to a smaller town where you feel more at home is an excellent idea.

    I'm definitely a 7. I noticed I was a lot more aggressive and chaotic than actual 5s and my focus was always on the fun. My last girlfriend said I was always bringing in new things for us to do to keep the fire going. That's when I started thinking I wasn't a 5. But yea I have had big problems in the past with isolating myself and being stuck in my head so I just assumed I was a 5. Yes I'll see what moving does I can't wait.

    Moving to a place that's more natural to you can make all the difference in the world. Good luck!
