The inhibition of feelings, reticence, deliberate attitude, need for certainty from the test report can all be found with the Sensitive Style:
Sensitive personality type / DSMIV Avoidant
Dr. John M. Oldham has defined the Sensitive personality style. The following six characteristic traits and behaviors are listed in his The New Personality Self-Portrait.
Familiarity. Individuals with the Sensitive personality style prefer the known to the unknown. They are comfortable with, even inspired by, habit, repetition, and routine.
Concern. Sensitive individuals care deeply about what other people think of them.
Circumspection. They behave with deliberate discretion in their dealings with others. They do not make hasty judgments or jump in before they know what is appropriate.
Polite reserve. Socially they take care to maintain a courteous, self-restrained demeanor.
Role. They function best in scripted settings, vocationally and socially: when they know precisely what is expected of them, how they are supposed to relate to others, and what they are expected to say.
Privacy. Sensitive men and women are not quick to share their innermost thoughts and feelings with others, even those they know well.
