    I believe I am a bit of both that I do and can take risks but within reason if I make mistakes I can reflect and then try to find ways of learning from these mistakes and move more in a positive way.

          I feel like I am a bit of both. I enjoy taking risks as I know there will be something to learn from if I make a mistake but I feel most comfortable when I know what is expected of me. I also like to think I have a lot of patience...even when it is tested! Being adaptable is important to me as well!

            I am mostly like Maui but also insightful like Mahuika! I learn best by doing so am always keen to get stuck into something new!

              I'm a bit of both.  I think I'm more inclined to be like Maui, playing, looking for and creating new ideas that will engage my learners and me.  However, I have a strong sense of responsibility like Mahuika.

                I keep trying to be Maui but I keep being reminded that I'm very Mahuika. I feel most comfortable when I've been able to plan well for what I'll be doing and am able to understand exactly what I'm doing and why. But every now and then I make myself have a go with something without first going right into the entire whakapapa!

                  I feel like I am both Maui and Mahuika. Being able to understand the big picture and then present the content in a way which fits for whoever your audience is is important.

                    I learn equally well in different contexts, I do not have any particular learning style, and so I am either Maui or Mahuika or both.

                      I think that I am a bit of both too! More Mahuika though than Maui.

                        I'm typically more of a Mahuika, as I tend to be very methodical and will most likely move through the various pīkau in order. I am systematic leaner, particularly when I am new to a topic, and unlikely to veer off the common path like Māui until I feel more confident.

                          I'm Mahuika in that I like to know what it is about and then look for opportunities to implement.
