Ayurveda Dosha Test!

To determine your Ayurvedic Dosha, fill out the questionnaire below. Base your choices on what you observe is most consistent over a long period of time, rather than your present state. Make one choice from the column that best describes yourself. However, feel free to make a selection from more than one column if two columns equally describe you. All of the words in that column need not apply for you make the selection. For Example, see below : Column Vata, Observation Hair - "dry, brittle, scarce". As long as one of these applies, make the selection.

 Most of us will have one Dosha predominant, a few will have two Doshas approximately equal and even fewer will have all three Doshas in equal proportion.
