Phase 5 feel settled in the group. Their place is secure but they feel that there must be more than just the system. They want to expand the possibilities and make the relationships in the system more rewarding. For them the system should not only survive but also bring benefits to its members. Members of the group should grow, receive respect and love, so that they can enjoy the group. They often have a strong driving force that tries to make everyone in the group feel happy and feel like a member of the group. They want everyone to grow and develop.
Sometimes they experience the group as limiting. That can lead to an expansion of their actions to outside of the group. They have the feeling that the group is okay but is not everything.
