Quick IHC question

Text books say that IHC are "sensitive to shearing in one direction".

My question is: Which direction does this correspond to in terms of pressure
at the tympanic membrane?

A. Positive sound pressure
B. Negative sound pressure
C. This is not known
D. The question is irrelevant
