I've got the type down fairly well by now I think. And I can conclude that, with a 9, what you see is what you get. With 6s, you never know which face they're going to show from day to day.

    I can go into greater detail about their respective MBTI's.

    If you would like, I'm not one to turn down information.

    6s are logical thinkers, but somewhat manipulative and very pragmatic. I worked with one ISTP 6 in my younger years who had tourette's, although it was less severe at that time than when he was a child. His neck/shoulder area was twitchy, and he exaggerated wildly about his masculinity. (For example, he says he lost his virginity when he was 3, he can drink a gallon of everclear, shit like that.) Last year I happened upon an old newspaper article reporting the time when he and his teenaged friends broke into someone's house, when they weren't at home, just to have a place to party.

    ISTJ 6 definitely has a more 8-ish, tough-guy attitude. My older brother is a horrific example of this type. These types are highly intelligent, IQ wise. But they are super-control freaks. Just don't piss them off, the result could be personal injury or death.

    An ISTJ 6 that I worked with a couple times a week for a few years was verbally pushy and sometimes physically too. He has an amazing capacity for acquiring knowledge, but not higher knowledge, only technical knowledge. For example, I heard him try to discuss Yttrium with someone who was looking for an intelligent conversation. His laugh sounds like a quiet walrus bark. Everybody, except his business partner, hates the guy.

    I don't feel like coming up with more thoughts right now, I'll check back here later.

    Once you see that we are almost always reacting, we become much simpler creatures to understand.

ISTP will more likely have sort of a Fe "soft spot"/vulnerable spot where they react strongly to feeling ganged up on - especially a sense of "paranoia" if they're 6w5. ISTJ will more likely have a sort of Ne "soft spot"/vulnerable spot where they, like MDP pointed out, react strongly to negative possibilities.
    Yes. Yes. Yes.
