tímido/inhibido/cohibido

I wonder why my colleagues translate the adjective "unassertive" in the feminine gender. (!!!) I've seen unassertive MEN too!

Gracias por los sinónimos. A pesar de que un colega indica que "asertivo" es un término que se usa desde hace poco, me parece mejor usar un término que todo el mundo conoce (es un test de personalidad, así que es importante que todos lo entiendan).
