Which dosha type are you?

Take our Maharishi Ayurveda dosha test to get a rough idea of your personal dosha composition.

Here's how:

Answer all questions in the three test sections. The number '0' means 'No, not right at all' whereas a '6' means 'Yes, absolutely right'. When answering the questions, think about your overall condition over the last six months and not just the past week. You should mark the number that best reflects how strongly you agree with each statement. The numbers you select will be automatically added together for each test section and, at the end, you will first be shown which dosha appears to be dominant for you (the highest number of points).

Let's go

Very few people are "pure" constitutional types, which are characterized only by Vata, Pitta or Kapha. Most are 'mixed types' made up of two doshas, sometimes even three, so don't worry if your result shows you have Vata, Pitta as well as Kapha characteristics. You should also read the information on your less pronounced doshas, which is also available from the results page.

A Maharishi Ayurveda doctor or an alternative practitioner will be able to give you an exact breakdown of your Ayurvedic basic constitution and your state of health. They will also be able to give you tailored, personal recommendations for preventing or treating any ailments.
