Am I a nit?

I think I play too little hands when the blinds are small but I get zero cards it seems like it when I play mtts. I think my line in the first 6 blind levels in all my mtts is like 5/2. Should I play +ev spots on the button/CO with semi good hands ie. 78s, As, KJs+ when the blinds are small and there are 3+ people in the pot?

yeah, those are all good hands to take down a big pot early and to start padding your stack

This question is far too general for anyone to answer correctly. Obviously, you should be taking many +eV spots as you can get. Post specific HH's if you are looking for advice on certain spots and have a look through the anthology at the top of the page.

If you plan on waiting for nut hands like AA/KK/QQ/AK.. then you might as well sit out and close the table cuz you just wasted money. If you dont try winning pots with suited connectors and pp's early you will be hurting for chips later on.

Don't wait for spots where you are a solid favorite, take any spot that you think will win you chips in the long run. You need as many chips as you can get to survive the blinds and those chips will help you win more chips later.

Probably, and probably still one.

I was bored. ( pretty sure the OP has changed a lot though, but if still playing, still nitty?)

Am I to understand that you are folding what you consider to be +eV spots? That is, by definition, a leak.
