I am splitting this particular conversation from Tcaud's Dual-Typing thread because he asked to have it not derailed. I consider this important to discuss because it carries a (possibly perceived) major contradiction when trying to combine theories. My purpose is not to create confusion, but to replace confusion with understanding as these questions are answered:
From Wikisocion Article on DCNH:
Now lets look at Tcaud's Introverted spectrum using ONLY IM and DCNH:First dichotomy: contact/distance. The first pole indicates the predominance of the need for contact, and the second the need to maintain distance. Into the contact category will fall clearly expressed extroverts as well as extroverted introverts. Distant will be clearly expressed introverts, but also introverted extroverts – those extroverts who avoid intensive contact. The scale of vertness is thus split into four gradations.
Tcaud is INTj in IM, and Creative Subtype in DCNH. According to DCNH that makes him an "Extroverted Introvert".
Now if I'm understanding Tcaud correctly with the following quote, he believes himself to be a "Clearly Expressed Introvert":
But if BOTH theories use the same spectrum, and they BOTH place Tcaud on different part's of the spectrum, I can only conclude three things:
1. Both theories use the spectrum (Dual-Type extends from DCNH) and Tcaud is really Harmonizing Subtype/Clearly Expressed Introvert and the Dual-Processor Analogy works with little contradiction.
2. Only DCNH uses the spectrum and Tcaud is an Extroverted Introvert. (Complicates processor analogy for Creative IXXx-EXXx types causing someones IM to be Extroverted Introvert and EM to be Clearly Expressed Extrovert, but does not completely void the analogy)
3. Dual-Type and DCNH are incompatible with each other because they attempt to use the same dichotomy spectrum. In this case if Dual-Type theory is accepted, DCNH should never be used with Dual-Type. (The analogy fails)
Can someone explain to me how these theories fit together in the analogy without causing contradictions in the dichotomy spectrums? If both DCNH and Dual-Type are used on top of IM, which is responsible for making people Extroverted Introverts etc?
Once again I would like to stress that I am not out to cause confusion, and believing so would be he result of paranoia. These are my real concerns regarding the mashing together of theories with conflicting implications. If we can sort out these contradictions, Dual-Type will be A LOT more understandable.
