    I am probably a combination of both, I start out like Mahuika, a little more reserved and watchful but once I experience some success I become more like Maui.

          I like to see the whole picture then break it down into parts. So I guess I am like Mahuika.

            I am very observant and patient in my learning just like Mahuika. I become a Maui when the learning develops into something I am truly passionate about.

              I am a mixture of both of these.  I love learning new things and will give anything a go, I have patience and working with others collaboratively.

                  I am a bit of a combination of Maui and Mahuika. I am curious, a risk-taker and have a growth mindset like Maui and I am responsible, insightful and I have a long fuse like Mahuika.

                      I am a combination of Mahuika - insightful, patient and responsible, and Maui - curious, adaptable, problem solver, with a growth mindset.  Always seeking and wanting to learn more.

                        I am more like Maui. I like to try new things and problem-solve along the way.

                          I believe that I have traits from both Mahuika and Maui in terms of learning.

                          Mahuika:  patient, insightful, responsibility and protectiveness.
                          Maui: adaptable, creative, growth mindset, goal-orientated and very curiosity.

                          Kia Ora.
