    I am a bit of both. I’ll go at it if I’m confident yet step back and take time to think about it if needed.

          I am a Maui . I like to have the space to move and develop ideas as they occur to me.

            I am a bit of both but probably sway more towards Mahuika.
            I need to think through some things in depth especially if others are relying on my lead, but at times can jump straight in if i am confident in what I am doing. smiley

              Like most of the respondents I am a mixture of both. I like to tutu and make mistakes but I also like some sort of order so that I can make sense of what I've been doing and how I can improve.

                I am a mixture of both. I like to have a quick look over all the information and then go back and delve deeper into the content.

                  I am a combination of the two. Like Maui, I like to jump in and skim the content. Then like Mahuika, I like to go back and dig deeper to gain more understanding.

                    Mahuika, that's me.

                      Maui all the way for me! Leap in and sort out the details as I go...

                        Like the majority of other respondents to this question I am most definitely a mix of Mahuika and Maui. I really enjoy trying new things and often go out on a liimb and try a new teaching technique, topic, etc without spending a lot of personal time on it simply because I want to see how it will work with a particular group of learners. Other times (generally if I can see the value of something) I will patiently prepare for weeks building up, and generally going overboard in the preparation, before embarking on the particular technique, etc.

                          I am a definite combination of both Maui and Mahuika! I am more like Maui when I am confident in what I am doing/teaching.
