    I propose a new subtype system, called DISC Subtypes. I mean, if we can have DCNH subtypes, which is basically adding new dichotomies to Model A, why shouldn't we incorporate various other non-socionic personality dichotomies to Socionics? We can start b y examining the DISC assesment system and see how that complements or overlaps Socionics.
    Correlation between Socionics and DISC:

    Dominance – ExTx,
    Influence - ExFx,
    Steadiness – IxFx,
    Conscientiousness – IxTx, (also sounds sensing and judging, ISTj)

    So if you want to make a socionics subtype system out of DISC it would be about the 1st and 3rd Jungian dichotomy whereas DCNH is about the 1st and 4th...

    The correlation between DISC subtypes and DCNH subtypes would be as follows:

    DCNH - DISC
    D - D, I
    C - no correspondence
    N - S, C
    H - no correspondence

    In other words: This possible DISC subtype system is already included in DCNH. Te-, Fe-, Ti- and Fi-subtypes already exist in DCNH if you use their Ego- and Id-functions as names (instead of D, C, N and H).

    Oh, I also propose a subtype system based on social extroversion and introversion. Could be handy to explain differences between e.g. gregarious and shy IEEs.
    Just get used to DCNH. Creative IEEs are most often gregarious, Harmonizing IEEs are often shy.

    I also propose the so-called neurotic subtypes system:

    relaxed subtype: is propably dualized and mainy uses his/her ego-block functions.
    burn-out-subtype: mainly uses super ego functions.
    depressed subtype: mainly uses super-id functions.
    That is interesting because (unlike http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Fiv...onality_traits) standard Socionics doesn't tell us much about neuroticism. Fortunately, there is a system called DCNH in socionics

    Neuroticism corresponds with the Connecting/Ignoring dichotomy of the DCNH system. Dominant and Harmonizing subtypes are connecting (~ more neurotic), Creative and Normalizing subtypes are ignoring (less neurotic).

    I'd say H subtype best correlates to S in disc; C subtype not really sure, maybe I.

    I've looked into DISC before, and that correlation sounds about right -- except that ExTx is both (ESTj and ENTj) as well as (ESTp, ENTp), and likewise for ExFx, IxFx, and IxTx.

    As for making it into a subtype system, I suppose you could, but it's really not up to the same standards of precision as Socionics. It would be like using MBTI as a subtype system.
