A possibilistic approach was proposed in a previous paper for C-means clustering, and two algorithms realizing this approach were reported in two previous papers. Although the possibilistic approach is sound, these two algorithms tend to find identical clusters. In this paper, we modify and improve these algorithms to overcome their shortcoming. The numerical results demonstrate that the improved algorithms can determine proper clusters and they can realize the advantages of the possibilistic approach.
