    Stephen Wolfram is one of the most obvious examples. Video:

    I find these descriptions of 5 stackings reasonable.

I actually tend to get bored and uncomfortable when there are more than two or three people, even if I know them well, and look for more one on discussions, but only if there is enough rapport, of course, to go beyond trite small talk and politeness.
    You're missing the forest for the trees. The overarching concern here is your social position within a group. If you get bored when there are too many people around, that could just be your instinct telling you you're losing your status in the group and it's time to find another way to do the social climbing that is typical of so/sp.

Without those people, I lose my drive and go searching for something I can be consumed with and to give me ambition. I was not a climber except for a few years ago. I was always focused on one-to-one or really close knit relationships for as long as I can remember and had bouts of misanthropic depression because of my reclusive nature conflicting with that side of me.

    sx/so would also explain my sometimes bouts of edginess and dramatics when with people I am really comfortable with. I also find myself most drawn to those who I think are prolly sx/so in being intense but open, even the introverts, in a sense, and having a certain energy about them. I tend to get bored with most other people for being too...plain, even if people think I am plain because I am very reserved in most circumstances.

    The idea of being ahead in the world doesn't appeal to me if I can't be somebody to someone who is somebody to me, as well.

    I also identify with having this all conflict with my need for autonomy and fearing seeing that compromised.

    I want to be accepted socially, don't get me wrong, and the only choices I think are reasonable other than sx/so which I am sort of thinking now would be so/sx and sx/sp.
    The way you talk about close knit relationships... I think your idea of what these are is totally different from how an sx/so or sx/sp would see it. You talk like it's something you need in order to feel motivated. You're also underestimating how much control our instincts have over us. Intimacy seems to be something you pick and choose. You get "bored" with people that are too plain. Why? Are they not representative of the kind of people you want to associate with? That's so/sp to the max.

    btw becoming depressed over a lack of intimacy seems more like something an sx last would run into rather than an sx first. I mean, it's more likely that an sx last would neglect their need for close personal connections. Of course, you value your close friends, just like I do, just like everyone does.

    No idea about sx/so Fives, but thank you for this thread - links posted were useful, it's rather clear now I'm sx/sp, not sp/sx.
