Here’s a few of my favorite Dosha Quizzes.
You can take dosha quizzes in two different ways. one is to find your “original blueprint” or Prakruti. And the other way is to find your current imbalances or Vrikruti.
To find your Prakruti take the quiz based on how you remember your original characters to be… before life started taking it’s toll… remember back to when you were a kid. To find your Vrikruti simply answer the questions in a clear and straightforward way, based on the truth of what’s occurring very recently in your life.

Well, I finally got around to looking at/taking the Dosha quizzes. I liked the yoga international one…clear, simple and instant results.
More often than not I keep coming up as Vata. I realize we all have some of each Dosha in us and mine are pretty close, Dosha 10, Kapha 8 and Pitta 7. Do certain Dosha imbalances happen with seasons? What steps do we take to counteract the negative qualities in Doshas different than ours? Is it more common to have negative qualities of Doshas different than your own type?
Thanks for all the new, interesting ways to consciously love myself better,

Good questions Shelly! I just took all 3 and liked the last one the best as well. My results for all tests revealed predominantly Kapha with equal parts Vata and pitta. My favorite question was runs like: bear, tiger or deer…Hilarious mental image!

Ladies!! I’m so glad you’re having fun with these!
Shelly… I adore how you keep using language like “learning to love myself” and “making time for me” and “considering what I want instead of what’s best for everyone else”… this is so good. Yes! Keep after it… baby steps. 😉
Okay so here’s my take. I think the most important thing is to begin to recognize and even “feel” the qualities of EACH of the doshas and from that place, begin to identify them when they become “out of balance” in your body.
As far as the seasons… yes, each season is associated with a dosha. Pitta = summer. Vata = Autumn/dry winter. Kapha = wet winter/Spring. Each of the seasons will tend to pull that dosha out of balance within you.
Which ever dosha is your most predominant is also pretty likely to go out of balance for you… especially during the season it’s associated with.
Keep asking questions (to yourself and to each other and to me), keep being interested, overtime all of it will begin to add up and to make good sense. It will become easier to “stay ahead of your tendancies to go out of balance”… this is the goal. The more we stay “in the balance zone” the less exacerbated the symptoms of disease become… so… we prevent disease by managing the doshas.
Does all that make sense?
