    Default ISTP 6 vs ISTJ 6, how do you tell them apart?

    How do you tell the two apart? I sure as hell can't.

    One obvious answer is that we're usually far less organized (Se vs. Si).

    I believe I may be a six. Find an ISTJ 6 and pick apart our differences, because I'm fairly sure I'm ISTP.

    My mom is an ISTJ 6. I can always tell from their Ne. It covers the bases. Their Ne is a "what if" machine of what could go *wrong* then they troubleshoot it but its always from that perspective. Which makes them trust consistency so much - in all aspects of their life.

    I'm much more lax with consistency and can flit from thing to thing much easier.

    ISTP 6 will more likely find security in autonomy while ISTJ 6 will more likely find it in stability. ISTP is far more likely to lean cp while ISTJ is far more likely to lean phobic. ISTP 6s usually have the "troubleshooting" thing going on - more in present time. They're good on the fly. ISTJ 6 is more planning ahead, more jilted when things are changing rapidly. 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.

    I can't say I care much for the type myself. I will file this away for future use.

    I'm not sure what the OP is asking exactly. But I'm not very comfortable around 6's. One of my best friends growing up was a 6. My dad was a 6. My mother is a 9w1. My wife is a 9w8. 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.
