According to the Spring 2004 Strategy Guide, the Prime Element table on page 30, shows the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" effect of the elements in Final Fantasy.

I think this chart clears up the whole "Damage Over Time" (DoT) spell controversy.
Also my experience in watching the Battle Spam in parties seems to show the same flow of elements.

These Spells are as follows;
DIA (DEF down effect)
BIO (ATK down effect)
BURN (INT down effect)
FROST (AGI down effect)
CHOKE (VIT down effect)
RASP (DEX down effect)
SHOCK (MND down effect)
DROWN (STR down eefect)

Charts reads as follows;

Light Cancels Dark
Dark Cancels Light

Fire Cancels Ice
Ice Cancels Wind
Wind Cancels Earth
Earth Cancels Thunder
Thunder Cancels Water
Water Cancels Fire

so if we replace the Element in the chart with a DoT spell;

DIA Cancels BIO
BIO Cancels DIA

BURN Cancels FROST
FROST Cancels CHOKE
CHOKE Cancels RASP
RASP Cancels SHOCK
SHOCK Cancels DROWN
DROWN Cancels BURN

According to the chart the only 2 spells that can cancel each other are DIA (Light) & BIO (Dark)(although some believe Dia & Bio are based on which ever spell is the higher level stronger one cancels the other & there is validity to that claim)
All others follow the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" Rule (Frost Cannot cancel Burn, Choke Cannot cancel Frost, etc.)

So I hope this helps clear up some things. Please don't rebutt this post with more hearsay & unconfirmed theories. I got this all out of the game rules, if you think its wrong or not entirely correct, test it for yourself. All I know is that when a fellow BLM casts BURN, my FROST "Has no effect" which according to chart, follows the game's logic.

Happy Nuking.

I know its been a bit since you asked this, and you probably won't be checking to see if anyone's answered, but I'll go ahead and do it anyway as it may benefit someone else in the future.

idk if Poison can be canceled, but if it can, its water based. So, if Poison is subject to this whole chain, then Poison would cancel Burn, and Shock would cancel Poison... but I'm not sure if that's the case. Someone will need to do a study on it, if at all possible. I personally don't have BLM leveled so I cannot. An interesting question to pose.

Edited to correct grammar.

Poison has no effect on burn, nor does any attack/dot spell remove Poison.

In fact, FFVI had 2 spells that attacked MP. Aspir (called Osmose) was draining MP, while Rasp was only decreasing the victim's MP. I used it a lot while fighting the magic monsters in Fanatics Tower.
Where can I get it?

It seems to decres the dex, so it's probably will work well with blind in the fact that it won't be able to hit you
