I tend to use the hesitant approach but with enough extra backup to show that I'm not guessing: The data goes a bit weird here. I think that might be because of x, because when I looked at factor y, it showed z pattern.
Fortunately, my manager is quite conversant with that style, so it's not a disadvantage to me, though his manager is far more direct (partly because it's his job to be interested in conclusions, rather than the process by which they are arrived at); so I have to be more prepared before I discuss things with him - I tend to spend some time beforehand making sure things are very clear in my head, and that I have answers to the questions I think he might ask about them. I'm still not wholly satisfied with my performance in that situation though; I like having space to think things through and double check them - I don't trust myself to come out with definitive answers on the spur of the moment, but neither do I like answering every question with "erm, I'll check that out and get back to you".
