/  Dosha Type Test

This questionnaire helps you to determine your body constitution according to the Ayurvedic system. It is important to keep in mind the two possible categories: your lifetime tendences and how you are presently. They may be very different as we all experience changes in our life. For example, regarding the category of «body weight», if I had suddenly begun to gain weight in the last 3 or 4 years, I might put Pitta as the answer for the «lifetime» category and Kapha as the answer of the present.

Ayurveda recognizes these two different states as follows:
 1) your dosha type or birth constitution (pakriti)
 2) your changing or temporary state as imbalance (vikriti).
To answer your test below, choose either V, P or K for each category. Only one option is possible.
