    I think I am a bit like both depending on where my own understanding is at.  I like to have a cursory explore/read over then delve into more depth later.

          I think I'm naturally more like Mahuika in that I'm patient, thoughtful, etc, but I'm challenging myself to be more of a risk-taker like Maui: just jump in and give the scary stuff a go!

            I'm mostly a Māui style learner. I love to have something to work on, instructions beside me and then give it a go.

              I'm a mixture of both, and it depends on where I am in the learning - at the start of new ideas I can be pretty methodical, but when I get a basic understanding, or I find an interesting connection, I'm more likely to jump around a topic.

                Mixture of both I guess. I like to have a quick look over all the information before I go mine deeper into the content.

                  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.
