Take a Dosha Quiz

Find Your Dosha (Mind-Body Constitution)

We are all comprised of unique energies called Doshas in Ayurveda. Our mind-body type is related to our physiology, digestion, metabolism, personality and so much more. 

Take this quiz to find out your Ayurvedic mind and body type, which may be different.

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 today. Make one choice that best describes yourself.
Please answer all questions for best results.
If you make a mistake, just click the box again to de-select. After finishing the questionnaire, press the “Get Test Results” button (located bottom of the page) to discover your Doshas.
