Thanks for the reply.
Are you just assuming you need another postdoc, or have you actually tried getting a permanent position?
No, I haven't tried for a permanent position. I am only
looking for academic positions. For that, I need at least 15-20 publications in medium impact journals or 1 very high with 3-4 medium impact publications. You could say that it depends on luck. I don't believe in it. With my publication status, I might be competitive to apply for another postdoc.
Why would you want to throw away something that's in your best interest?
I am not throwing away anything. The persons who get interviews for TT position in our University (not in the first 100s in University rankings), had at least 6-7 years of postdoc with an average publication record I quoted above. I don't want to spend my time and energy to apply for something with very low probability of getting an interview.
