Someone who shows and metacognates a lot is myself. For the past weeks or so, I've been keeping a discussion tab open and recording how I realized I was metacognating that day. I honestly wasn't sure who to do, but Mr. A told me to do myself and told me I was getting pretty good at it. I've become more aware of how I'm thinking about how I'm thinking about something when I'm thinking about that something.

Thinking Interdependently
People with this habit are very social and like being with groups. They share their energy with the whole group and get more done together. In groups they contribute
their time and energy to tasks that they would quickly tire of when working alone.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
