7500k is too cool to be useful to you. You will need to find out how to adjust your ViewSonic monitor to get to 6500k. The Mac display at 6500k should be acceptable

Only thing I did notice after running a check test on Displaycal is the viewsonic seems to be running at 7500k (not sure how to lower that) and the mac appears to be running at 6500
6500 is the suggested choice for photo editing for use on the web, lower (5500) if printing. 7500 is too high

D65 not D50 is still the recommended choice for printing even though we may view our prints illuminated in a print booth using D50 source.
Generally D65 will give a better print to screen match

What Mac do you have and how old? Is it a retina display?

i agree. just not sure how to do that. Once I find out how do I need to recalibrate it with that new white point?

Yes you will need to calibrate each time you make any adjustment. The reasoning behind this is that you have changed the monitor condition, thus negating the existing profile and therefore a new profile needs to be made characterising the new condition.

I have heard anecdotally people having difficulty printing when using the retina screens; I don't know the details, but it had to do with the extreme contrast. Maybe if there is significantly higher contrast on your new display, the image looks more contrasty than it is objectively, and therefore it is insufficiently contrasty on your regular MacBook Air screen?
