    It seems Mac OS X is super dim and the colours are very blue.

    How do I increase brightness and what is the correct colour profile under Mac OS X?.

    I get the impression Apple dims the displays threw software as my external displays from other sources are much brighter.

    Have you been messing about with color profiles?
    You increase brightness with F2. If you have the TouchBar there's a brightness slider you can use on that. It can also be adjusted from System Preferences.

    In the color section of System Preferences there's a color profile made for your display at the top, unless you've created a bunch of your own, then they might be on top.

    The colour profiler is set as the one that was shipped with the Macbook Pro and the brightness is at maximum. What is the standard colour profile that is not specific to my internal macbook pro display (as other sources do look fine so there must be some kind of default profile that looks good in general)?

    That depends on the display. There are different color spaces for displays and different generic profiles depending on the color space. sRGB is the most common, P3 is used on most newer Macs, Adobe RGB is very used by cameras and high end photography monitors, rec 2020 and 2100 are the new standards for UHD TVs, though no display to my knowledge fully covers that color space yet.
