Just slide the transmission lever to the +/- gate, you can then play with the gears yourself, the system is self protecting, it will not allow you to try anything potentially damaging.
If you slow, then it will select the correct gear, if you try to ove rev it will shift up.

I almost forgot to ask this very important question. I know lots of you guys might be familiar with this type of transmission. When I bought my Sorento CRDi which is a Korean Market version, it comes with dual transmission, auto and tiptronic with + and - sign. Since the catalog that came with the vehicle is in Korean language, I never bothered to use the tiptronic gate fearing I will damage it. Even the dealer is not familiar with it. Someone told me to go up next gear, I should click it on + (positive) side and to do gear down, click it on the - (negative) side. It's a five speed trans. My question is, what if I'm running on 5th gear and do a sudden stop, what I will do with the transmission then? I heard that this tiptronic type is good if you want a more quicker response from the engine. Please help me

Like you I also have a Korean unit, I am fron Cebu City, Philippines, which goes with the tiptronic transmission. Yes, its a wonder to have this, when you slide to +/-, its ok whether you are on the run or in stand still, its perfectly safe. And when you are on the 5th gear and u are slowing down, going to a full stop, it then returns the gearing to the 1st gear. Think of it as a clutchless manual transmission but smoother. So you can decide/control when you are going to shift up/down, rev up, rev down(am I sure about this).. Cheers...
