Seeking control over their lives, Fives seek to increase their competency by withdrawing into their minds to gain knowledge. Fives tend to live in the mental world of ideas rather than in the outside world. They are good at creating systems, but their need to be in control makes it difficult for them to work within systems. They tend to work better outside the system than within it. At their best, Fives understand things more deeply than other people and advance science and human knowledge by sharing their insights. Stephen Hawking is an excellent example of a Five at his best. Although wheelchair-bound and almost completely paralyzed, Hawking lives in his mind, exploring the secrets of the universe.

Famous Examples of Fives:

Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, Stanley Kubrick, John Lennon, James Joyce, Stephen King, Franz Kafka, Kurt Cobain, Garrison Keillor, Jerry Brown, Bobby Fischer, Yoda of Star Wars, Dilbert, C-SPAN.
