    Enneagram is often viewed as a "sub-type" system for MBTI around these parts, but it's unofficial.

    Over on INTPc, they've developed a subtype system by mixing the letters around according to which preference is stronger. (e.g. NPIT)

    I also wondered if the OP might have been thinking of the Step II subscales.

    I had never heard of those Socionics subtypes. Only one of the links in that search I have seen so far gives examples of them (e.g. H-INTj, Ti-INTj, Ni-INTj, etc.)

    MBTI Step 2 subscales is useful. It provides a more granular breakdown for each letter. The sites I've seen cost 80 - 90 dollars to take Step 2.

    I didn't actually click on any of the links

    Interesting.
    But it sounds like a free standing temperament matrix in its own right. The factors sound almost similar to Interaction Styles; (which are not free-standing, but interwoven into the type code).

    I can't recall there being any subtypes in MBTI. There exist subtypes in socionics. These subtypes are based on the strength of your dominant vs your auxiliary function. For instance for ESFP there are two subtypes, the Fi-ESFP and the Se-ESFP, and so it goes for all the other type as well.

    Technically, MBTI doesn't have subtypes like Enneagram and Socionics (Big 5 doesn't have any subtypes either), just preference strength. However, if MBTI is combined with Enneagram or the Big 5, it can make MBTI look as if there were subtypes.

    Take any other personality test(that doesent correlate too much with MBTI) and combine it with your scores and you got a subtype.
