This personality is typically described as "mild-mannered," perhaps most famously by the opening narration of Max Fleischer's Superman animated theatrical shorts. These traits extended into Clark's wardrobe, which typically consists of a bland-colored business suit, a red necktie, black-rimmed glasses (which in Pre-Crisis stories had lenses of Kryptonian material that would not be damaged when he fired his heat vision through them), combed-back hair, and occasionally a fedora.
This is pretty much the way I see Clark and want Clark to be handled. I don't want Chris Reeve's slapstick Clark, but I do want Clark to be a very soft, retiring sort of character. To me, that's part of his strength as a reporter...he comes off so non-threatening that he puts people at ease.
