Is not to tell unpleasant things or not reveal how they really think about your behavior, just keep.......silent. Very frustrating!

Yes overlap with passive-agressive, the kinda PA which Oldham describes as ' I can stand looking at the pc screen anymore, my eyes hurt'

There is some overlap with the Self Sacrificing Style too, often they have unsollicted ' let me do this for you's ' too.

Altruism seems to be some more subtle form of taking care of own interests by softly manipulating people into guilt or into a relation in which you can't possibly deny helping such a person...Often many of them have a network in which they are plugged in; and their heads seem to be full of thinking about all these people and there lives.

sounds familiar?
