  1. I knew previously that I am Pitta/Kapha but took the quiz to reaffirm that. I mentioned in a previous journal post that I spent this last summer working at an Ayurvedic restaurant. I had the opportunity to learn about the dietary recommendations for each dosha and had to remember how they applied to the different dishes, drinks and desserts so that I could make the best recommendation for customers based off of their doshas and individual dietary needs.

    I found that one of my favorites to recommend to people was the kitchari which a dish that is great for all the doshas and people could add different toppings to meet even more specific needs. I personally liked to add limes to mine as it was not only cooling for the summer season but also good for reducing pitta. I also learned during my time at the restaurant that sweet foods are good for eliminating the aggression and digestive upset that comes with an unbalanced pitta. I thought this was not only great for health reasons but also because I am very much a sweet tooth! I have to say, the healing powers food can have are pretty amazing. It takes the saying “you are what you eat” to a whole new level!

  2. The quiz picked me as the Pitta-Kapha Dosha which is fire and water. I found this to be interesting because I am a double Scorpio which is a water sign. I found that it was a very accurate reflection of myself even if I did not like it. Though it suggested I should become a lawyer based on my personality. I will not do that but my career with involve the law.

    It found that I am also an emotional person which can be a good thing in certain circumstances. When it comes to strong fluctuations of emotions, this is it. This is something that I find to be a major problem in a reflection of my being. It is something that I have come to find the truth about myself.

  3. My results were:
    39% Vata
    44% Pitta
    17% Kapha

    I am a Vata-Pitta Dosha. Which is someone who is a leader and perfectionist as well as someone who pushes the people around them to meet their own standards. Which I think is very much my personality. A lot of the examples the results gave I have done them in real life. I also looked at the different products for both people with Vata and Pitta doshas and I noticed there are products that are meant to detoxify the body as well as things like ghee and herbal teas.

    I think it is interesting that ayurveda, which seems to be different food, drink and vitamin supplements that are personalized and goes hand in hand with dosha, which is based off personailty and health. It is also interesting that there are ayurveda doctors that specialize in testing people and matching them up with their own products based on their dosha and from that they can tell their state of health. I can see this being a growing popular alternative to modern medicine. Because it is all natural and personalized to the individual.

  4. My result was Pitta-Kapha Dosha. The descriptions was: emotional, passionate, argumentative, aggressive, inspiring and hot-headed, and that’s within the first 5 minutes of meeting you. Generally, you don’t hold back on your opinions, convictions and beliefs. You also have an incredible ability to recall information and facts, which helps you win many arguments (if you are a lawyer, you may have found your calling).

    I think that this does describe me to some extent but I definitely relate to some aspects of the description more than others. I see myself as an emotional and passionate person who, at times, can be argumentative and hot headed. But I don’t believe that I am an aggressive person. Another thing that I agree with in the results was that I usually don’t hold back on my opinions or beliefs because I feel they are very important to me and my opinions and beliefs make up who I am.

  5. 44% Kapha
    41% Vata
    15% Pitta

    I’m a sucker for personal quizzes, and this one was no exception. I found myself selecting multiple options quite frequently, so I had no idea what the end result would entail. The results proved accurate in some respects. Kapha-vata’s tend to overthink things, which I am more than guilt of doing. One of the reasons I took this yoga course was to learn how to relieve stress, take things slow and have time to reflect one my own mental needs. Taking this quiz and reading about my personal traits/faults made me more aware of my emotional shortcomings.

    I feel that I’m very aware of when I become bossy and/or pushy. Generally, I’m more of an outgoing person, but hardly ever to the point of bossiness; I feel that I’m a considerate person. But reading that my main trait (according to this quiz) is my pushiness was surprisingly. Granted, I don’t let online quizzes dictate my life, but it definitely was interesting to read what this Dosha quiz had to say about my personality.

  6. After taking the online dosha guru quiz it was determined that i am mostly pitta-kapha dosha. I am 50% pitta dosha with the elements fire and water. I am 31% kapha dosha with the elements water and earth. Lastly i am 19% vata dosha with the air and space elements. They describe me as being emotional, passionate, aggressive and hot headed. Which are some traits i somewhat agree with, to an extent of course. Since the pitta and kapha both share the water element it real sums up how quickly my emotions and opinions change. My mood changes and i get frustrated quickly. It was suggested that my mantra be one of forbearance, meaning i have more patience and think situations through. But this is somewhat difficult because i am naturally argumentative and highly opinionated, though i’m currently trying to change.

    I would summate that the Ayurvedic practice is mostly centered around living well in natural ways. As opposed to the traditional allopathic practice of medicine which treats what is already wrong, such as disease and illness. The Ayurvedic is more of a preventative practice, promoting healthy habits. When you follow the Ayurvedic and get to know yourself, you are instantly on track for a better experience as self exploration is key to a healthy life.

  7. The quiz said i am a Kapha Dosha. It truthfully pointed out my stubbornness and implied the kapha dosha typically looked to for make difficult decisions. I would also like to point out the noticeably fact that Kapha Dosha is represented by water, while as my astrological sign also is represented by water. Meanwhile though i can hardly swim. It also said my attachment comes from my love and caring while as my mantra should be lightheartedness and forgiveness. Most of this part also does ring true except my own problems with handling forgiveness. Forgiveness is a topic that has been in my head for quite a while now and how to handle its limits and shapes is still a tricky thing a struggle with everyday.

    Besides that thought I am interested in the how this test concludes things based on the (dry,moist,oily) questions involving (Eyes, Hair, Completion, BM’s).

  8. After taking this quiz I figured out I am Vata-Pitta, which after reading the description I think is spot on. I am someone who is willing to fight for a cause but is also a perfectionist and very hard on myself at times which then leads to a lot of anxiety. Being aware that I do have anxiety I try to meditate, do deep breathing as well as the finger holds now that I’ve learned them so it’s interesting to see in the description it said my mantra should be cool, calm, and collected because I am someone who can get rattled easily.

    I think the underlying benefits I’ve been receiving from these teachings is the self-reflection in a new way. While self-reflection is important it should not be done with the comparisons of others in mind but something so much more beyond that as a celestial being. Being in tune with the universe and its wavelengths. I also thought the description given was almost identical to my zodiac sign which is an air sign and Vata-Pitta is air and space so it convinced me of its accuracy and much we are in tune with the stars and universe around us.

  9. I found this quiz terrifyingly accurate. Whilst I didn’t agree with all the results I found it did answer a lot of the questions that I have been struggling with myself this semester. I got the Vata Dosha result. “You are pure bubbling bliss when balanced, and a babbling mess when not. ” This could not be more precise. As of late I feel like I am thrown off very easily by anything that interrupts my frequencies or my energy. I am very vulnerable to that. And I think it is because I feel like there are very few moments that I have where I do feel balanced and so I value them a lot and try to harness them for as long as I can. When I hit road bumps, emotionally, financially etc I find that I don’t think I am strong enough to get through them or address them. “It’s important to remember to revisit ‘real life’ as there are certain responsibilities you need to address every now and then” . This however is so true. All what I experience is a process and I think I just need to be easier on myself more and just take my time and know that things will get better and that I have the capability to push through it. “Rapid thoughts and fast-talking are just a small part of your repertoire. ” This is definitely a part of my personality when I am confident I feel like I banter a lot with people and am always on a different planet. ” but there are others outside of your circle of friends who may find you unapproachable and out of touch.” This is something that I have been extremely conscious of this semester. I have been told that I am seemingly very sociable and can navigate sociable environments very well and seem to know a lot of people. I have also been told that I can come across very nonchalant and that all of these things can be very intimidating. Which is something that I am trying to not be and also confusing because I find a lot of people extremely intimidating all the time, and I thus close myself off from a lot of people . I really hope that this is something I can improve, because I would like to connect and meet new people and better my environment. “Staying rested and focused will allow you to continue to be an inspiration to others and yourself, and to accomplish your goals.” This is something I definitely need to do more. I need to put time into communicating and checking in with myself and others, instead of repressing a lot which is what I think I do a lot and I am trying to be better about it. I have lots of big goals that I want to accomplish and I do not take this privilege of being able to follow them for granted so I will and am trying my best to be mindful of that, and improve to be the best version of myself, whilst also accepting that I can make mistakes and that there will be hurdles that I need to get through, it is all a learning experience.

  10. The accuracy of this quiz has made me realize a number of things: I need to be more stable and responsible with the things I do. This quiz has determined that I am 44% vata dosha, 28% pitta dosha, and 28% kapha dosha. It’s understandable that the elements of air and space are what strongly dwell in me. It has described me as a “bubbling bliss when well balanced” and “ babbling mess” when I’m unbalanced. I find it very true that finding balance for me can be difficult and when I have found it, maintaining it feels ,most of the time, impossible. My emotions often feel like a rollercoaster and they often switch very quickly, making it frantic to keep up with the consistent changes. I also agree with the quiz when it stated the rapidness of my thought process. It’s often difficult for me to organize my thoughts when I’m having an endless stream of them. It has also suggested that I can be airy/forgetful at times. This is something I’m sure many of my peers would agree with. Reading this quiz has also made me realize that a lot of my balance is thrown off when my physical and emotional health is thrown off (lack of sleep and such). This quiz has definitely made me aware of the problems within myself that I need to work on improving.

  11. After talking the Dosha quiz, it told me that I am 42% Kapa Dosha which is made up of water and earth. Being a Kapa Dosha it said that I am stubborn but “people rely on to make difficult decisions.” Applying this to my life, I feel that it is accurate because I feel I can be quite stubborn at times, maybe because I think I know a lot, maybe I have narcisistic tendencies, maybe I have trust issues or maybe I think I know myself very well. I want to tap more into this stubbornness to see where it stems from and why it may be so prominent, maybe it is used as a defense mechanism because people rely on me. It was really interesting taking this quiz and seeing how parts of your everyday life can effect your Dosha, it really goes to show how changing different parts of your life can change you on the inside and your energy.

  12. The Dosha quiz said I was a Kapha-vata Doshas. I feel it is a somewhat fair assessment though I am not as indecisive as it suggests. The emphasis on how balance being in balance or out of balance rang particularly true. The recipe given looks very yummy I will try it some time .

  13. After taking the Dosha Quiz, my results where Pitta Dosha (Fire & Water) which is pretty accurate. I’m a Scorpio which is also a water sign and I am super passionate and love being in control. BUT the test results did mention to take it easy because too much heat can burn me out. Which is applicable to everything I’m doing in my last semester because I’m a feeling a bit burnt out, but my Isha Kriya definitely helps balance that.

    It’s also interesting that it said “practice good apologizes they are golden in your pocket”. Since I’m a scorpio and we are sometimes ruled by guilt, I’m taking this Dosha response very seriously. Myself and others around me always point out I say sorry too much for the smallest things, its almost like word vomit. Instead I need to implement my Satya Yama in being true to myself, to respond more wisely to situations without throwing myself under the bus.

  14. I am a Vata-Pitta Dosa! So Air and Space are apparently my realm- which makes sense as a Libra, an air sign, if we’re talking about other types of personality tests. I AM pretty intense, and I agree with the rest as well – being able to rally people and keep momentum going especially – and I am (sometimes unfortunately) a perfectionist- so that’s why I’m going into film producing! That generally encompasses all of these traits to make something cool. As it also states though, I definitely need to learn to keep it calm, cool and collected. I jump to conclusions too quickly and run around at top-speed too often, leading me to tire myself and everyone around me out pretty quickly. This is why yoga must become more a part of my everyday routine! The IK often helps this.

  15. I was slated as a Pitta Dosha. As a Pitta dosha, I prefer to hang out with intellectuals who have a dry wit and a sharp tongue, like myself. These are the sort of people who ‘get’ me. I am a passionate leader and lover, and are most at home when you are in control. I tend to thrive in extreme situations when the pressure is on, because it brings out your leadership qualities, but too much heat can cause me to burn out. I do best when I have the “heat turned on,” when there is some sort of pressure put on me. If I have nothing to do, nothing will get done. The expression “if you want something done, ask a busy person” definitely applies to me. I do have to learn to not put too much pressure on myself, however, because there have been times this semester for instance when I have felt extremely burnt out. Self care is of the utmost importance, getting enough rest, eating well, not indulging in alcohol more than once every couple of weeks. I am continually learning strategies to care for myself.
