"Fortemente INTRATENSO por natureza, consegue se voltar para o meio e para a interação graças a um esforço significativo, mas é contido, formal e inseguro, principalmente diante de desconhecidos e de figuras de autoridade."
Thank you all for the help. I agree with Joe, there is no such a word (intratenso)in any dictionary I checked, so the solution was to go guided by the context. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: I am not 100% sure, but this seems to fit the context of your sentence. I checked some dictionaries and could not find the word "intratenso" but did find a definition for "tenso" that fits the bill: "Muito aplicado ou preocupado." This came from Michaelis. Hope this helps.
