    I am definitely more like Mahuika.. I like to do everything in order- step by step.

                Abit of both. Would like to think I am more like Maui but know I am probably more like Mahuika.

                  I think I am quite a lot like Mahuika. I am quite methodical and a step by step type person. I am quite conservative when it comes to working on digital technologies as I worry about messing something up.

                    I think I am a bit of both. Exploring and trying things out but like to have the back up of the knowledge that comes from reading and thinking.

                      I am a mixture of both. I love trying new thing but really like to have the background knowledge as well.

                        I think I have a bit of both.  i like to learn by playing round but also like to have a little knowledge first.
