> 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.

Hello Jan:
First, thanks for the information on the avoidant/Sensitive Style. I found it very useful, personally, and informative! Rereading the orginal report, I still have doubts. I would say that this person possibly fits MILLON's Disquieted Dependent Personality, in this case, with strong avoidant elements. Thsi seems like a mixed type of some sort...? Rich

> 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.
